Suicide Squad #3 review

Amanda Waller is getting to know new Task Force X recruit Superboy better. But is she sitting down with him over a cuppa? Not Waller.

Suicide Squad #1 review

Aquaman #50 review

It’s been a while, but Aquaman is back in Amnesty Bay. And he’s brought friends. The old sea gods he met during a recent bout of amnesia need feeding, and where better than Maine, with its legendary seafood? Having heard he was dead, Arthur Curry’s friends in the community show up to welcome him back. […]
