Wonder Woman #770 review

Where does the greatest superhero blessed by the gods of Olympus go when she dies? Where else but… …Valhalla? It’s not all mead and toasting for Diana, though – while her nights are spent carousing, her days are devoted to battle. In Wagnerian hero Siegfried, Diana has an instant friend, but he’s not the only […]

Legion of Super-Heroes #11 review

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Legion… Earlier this week I was chatting on Twitter to other longtime Legion fans, saying that while I’m enjoying the latest Legion of Super-Heroes series, the team has rebooted so many times that I no longer think of any Legion beyond the original and Zero Hour versions as […]

Legion of Super-Heroes #8 review

The latest issue of the Brian Michael Bendis/Ryan Sook reboot has the usual amount of the former and very little of the latter.

It’s a big day for Wonder Woman as, aided by her Amazon sisters, she moves into a brownstone in Washington DC. She quickly meets the neighbours.

Legion of Super-Heroes #7 review

The Legion of Super-Heroes are an impulsive bunch. Having survived the threat of the Horraz and restored Earth’s water with a magic trident, they crash a meeting of the United Planets Council to, well, apologise for being so darned impulsive.

Batgirl #47 review

Barbara Gordon wants nothing more than a quiet night in on her own. A moment of calm gives her a chance to reassess her priorities. A peaceful few hours? Good luck with that. The Joker.
