War For Earth 3 #2 review

The Titans have been teleported to Earth 3 to help Rick Flag’s unofficial Suicide Squad stop Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad taking over the world. Or something.

Crime Syndicate #1 review

I do like a good comic book homage, and the first issue of this DC mini-series has not one, but two.
