Nightwing #100 review

It’s party time, as Dick Grayson celebrates the 100th issue of his solo series which started in the glory days of the New 52. Crashing the party is Heartless, who’s been a thorn in the side – or rather, the chest – of the people of Blüdhaven for a while. He’s murdered city kingpin Blockbuster […]

Batman: Gotham Nights #7 review

Joker, Catwoman, Riddler… Killer Moth? The ‘lethal lepidopteran’ doesn’t sit easily on a list of Gotham’s greatest villains – if it wasn’t for his role in the origins of Batgirl, he’d likely never have survived the Sixties. The latest DC Digital First Batman story, though, repositions Killer Moth, massively increasing his role in Batman’s life. […]

Supergirl #34 review

It’s not often that a superhero comic contains images so extreme I won’t share them here. But there’s a scene in this issue that’s just gross, inserted for shock effect. The moment in question comes soon after Kara returns to Earth following the Rogol Zaar business, a certain Superdog at her side. Isn’t that lovely? […]

Supergirl #31 review

I’m having flashbacks. Flashbacks to the days when Marvel Comics would show crossover events from two angles in separate books. The difference with Supergirl #31 in relation to Superman #12 is that the coordination is less than impressive. A quick recap. Supergirl has been questing across the galaxy for the truth behind Krypton’s demise, accompanied […]

Freedom Fighters #1 review

It’s 1963 and the United States is under the boot of the Third Reich. Germany won the Second World War and a group of resistance fighters squirrelled away in the Texas Book Depository find a spark of hope in new visitors. It’s a light that is soon extinguished. The Spirit of America feels despair, but […]
