Heroes in Crisis #9 review

It’s the final issue of Heroes in Crisis and the message we’re meant to take away is that Hope is accepting responsibility, bearing your burdens, and carrying on regardless.  For me, Hope is continuing to buy a series that, more often than not, just annoyed me.

Heroes in Crisis #7 review

Enough! I agree with Superman after reading this issue, a real step back from last month’s decent chapter.

Here we get: One page of Tempest getting drunk in Hatton Corners, where Aqualad, Speedy and Robin […]

Heroes in Crisis #3 review

Heroes in therapy. That’s what we get as the third issue of Tom King and Clay Mann’s limited series opens. Lagoon Boy, The Flash, Booster Gold, reeling off name, tagline and how long they’ve been at Sanctuary, the treatment centre for emotionally battered super-people. Turn the page and there’s a shocking image. Is this the […]
