Generations Shattered #1 review

I’m a sucker for motley crews. Give me heroes from across time and space whom you wouldn’t usually see together, and I’m there. Enter the Golden Age Batman, Superman’s Pal Steel, New Titan Starfire, the original Superboy, the second Dr Light, the one and only Booster Gold, Last Boy on Earth Kamandi and Green Lantern […]

Superman #28 review

Superman has followed the Synmar Utopica to his homeworld. The stranger wants the Man of Steel there because… … I really have no idea. It’s four months since the world of Synmar was introduced, a planet whose people are the Synmar, and whose champion is the aforementioned Synmar Utopica. The people jabber on in oddly […]

Superman #27 review

In the Phantom Zone, Superman faces an unknown foe. The extraterrestrial appeared in Metropolis and attacked, putting thousands of lives at risk. With the aid of Fortress of Solitude major domo Kelex, the Man of Steel moved the battle to the other-dimensional prison. Of course, you’re rarely alone in the zone. Punching Xa-Du gives Superman […]

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 […]

Superman #25 review

Hey, it’s an extra-length anniversary issue! They used to be quite the thing, so it’s nice to see DC reviving the tradition for the 25th chapter of Brian Michael Bendis’ Superman run. And we get a new antagonist for the occasion. Not that Synmar and Superman meet this issue – what we see of the […]

Superman #24 review

Last issue Superman’s consultation with Doctor Fate was interrupted… by a Lord of Chaos. And not not just any old LoC, but Xanadoth, ‘the one true Lord of all Lords of Chaos’. Khalid Nassour hasn’t been Doctor Fate for long and isn’t equipped to deal with such an experienced spellcaster, one whose natural might is […]

Superman #22 review

What with the Covid-caused delay to comics, it feels as if Superman has been fending off Mongul’s latest attack on Earth for ever. Happily, the space conqueror hasn’t reached us, we’re still unvanquished, and here’s the Man of Steel back and raring to go. Seriously, this is among the best battles with Mongul I’ve read; […]

Superman #20 review

Intergalactic despot Mongul has turned up to wreck the United Planets’ party. Leaders of the newly formed peace-seeking organisation have gathered to anoint a world their collective home, an admin centre for diplomats, but the cosmic conqueror isn’t having it. Cue a planet-quaking fight with Superman, there as Earth’s UP representative, one that reminds us […]
