Dark Crisis #1 review

This issue, a Titan DIES! Or, if it’s Tuesday, it must be Crisis. Let’s pretend the previous 17 or however many Crisis events we’ve enjoyed or endured since the Crisis on Infinite Earths happened were fluffy affairs, because this is the Dark Crisis! Which means that the villains stand in the shadows. Well, so far… […]

Justice League #75 review

Here’s a comic that ‘does what it says on the tin’. The Justice League get killed. Blasted to smithereens. Apparently. Because we all know they’re coming back… this issue is full of characters who have been killed and reborn. Heck, Wonder Woman has only been back from her death in the previous ‘Crisis to end […]

Deathstroke Inc #6 review

This issue starts with Black Canary fighting off members of the Secret Society, who last month were revealed as the secret council behind T.R.U.S.T. That acronymic organisation had hired Black Canary aka Dinah Lance, and Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, to capture supervillains. Dinah wasn’t sure if they were good guys or bad guys, but either […]

Justice League Incarnate #4 review

Given the events inside this penultimate issue, Gary Frank’s intense cover at first seems an odd choice. There are cataclysmic moments aplenty, but here’s new heroine Dr Multiverse in accusatory mode. As it turns out, it’s the first panel of the story, as Dr Multiverse – newly imbued with cosmic awareness – tells her Justice […]

Justice League Incarnate #3 review

Finally, after more than a decade of nonsense, Donna Troy gets the moment she deserves. Sure it’s not main-universe Donna Troy, but what does that even mean when continuity shifts every couple of years? The last Crisis event, Death Metal, ended with an infinite collection of multiverses in play. The Donna we’re seeing most regularly […]

Justice League Incarnate #1 review

Spinning out of the recent Infinite Frontier series, the multiversal Justice League get the spotlight as they bid to foil the latest plot by the latest Darkseid. It turns out the master of Apokolips hasn’t been himself for a while, but he’s back and bigger than ever, having absorbed lesser versions, or something. I know […]

Infinite Frontier #6 review

The final issue of this terribly enjoyable mini-series opens with a multiversal melee gone large as the JSA and Justice Incarnate go head to head for the fate of…actually, I’m not sure they know. The heroes do know that they’ve ended up on Earth Omega, where the bodies of the supposedly all-powerful Quintessence lie dead […]

Infinite Frontier #5 review

This one’s got it all! It’s a cliche but so far as DC event comics go – and when you’re talking DC events, you’re talking Crises – Infinite Frontier #5 has everything I want. There are revelations, as Psycho Pirate explains that he’s aiming to protect worlds from the effects of the continuous multiversal massacres […]

Infinite Frontier #4 review

In the Hall of Heroes, things are getting weird with Captain Carrot and Machinehead. In the White House of Earth 23, President Superman and multiversal visitor Batman – the Thomas Wayne of another parallel – are getting to know one another. On Earth 0 – the regular DC Universe world – Director Bones of the […]
