The Flash #783 review

‘Raise your hand if you’re through with multiple universes’ says Wally West. Well, the collective DC being certainly doesn’t raise a hand, cosmic or otherwise, because the parallel world tales keep on coming, no matter how often we’re told that we’ve just read the final last ultimate Crisis, honestly. This summer it’s the Dark Crisis, […]

The Flash #781 review

For a comic titled ‘All pedal, no brakes’, it’s ironic that it takes so long for things to get going.

The Flash #776 review

The cover image tells us this isn’t an average issue of The Flash – a massive head of Dr Fate pulling back Wally’s reality. Inside, Wally has just seen off an incursion into Keystone City by the dark god Eclipso and thought relaxation lay ahead. Nope, the Justice League Dark’s most mystical member needs help. […]

Hawkman #29 review

‘Hawkman is ended at last’, cries villain Anton Hastor on the opening page of this issue. He’s not wrong. This is the final issue of the latest series starring Carter and Shayera Hall. And a very fine issue it is, capping a series that’s benefited for a consistent creator vision. Robert Venditti gives us the […]

Hawkman #23 review

Hawkman and Hawkgirl are falling. And then, a memory… in a past life, Carter Hall is Dr Carlo Salón, a quack going door to door in 17th-century plague-ridden Seville, counting the dead.
