Detective Comics #1050 review

I bought this ‘Landmark 1050th issue for the World’s Finest preview, which is just as well, as the rest of the issue wasn’t my cup of tea. If you’re going to use anniversary status – even a weird one no one’s ever heard of – to bring in new readers, the trick is to be […]

Batman/Superman #22 review

It’s the last issue of this series, and talk about going out with a bang!

Superman #26 review

Superman is falling to the ground. Or perhaps he’s flying upwards in the vertiginous opening to this issue’s chapter of the Never Ending Battle. It’s hard to tell, but this is undeniably an exciting, eye-grabbing moment. Even as a stranger reaches for his throat, Superman reaches out with his mind, ever hopeful that this is […]
