Blue & Gold #4 review

Booster and Beetle’s new venture, Blue & Gold Restoration, is open for business. In a promotional exercise, the boys meet a TV reporter.

The Flash #771 review

Well, that’s a gloomy cover from illustrator Brandon Peterson and colourist Michael Atiyeh, taking us back to the horror that was the Heroes in Crisis mini-series. Happily, the issue itself is a thoroughly jolly affair, as Wally West, at the mercy of the Speed Force, continues bouncing into the bodies of speedsters across time and […]

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’.

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; […]

Supergirl #39 review

This is the review I almost never wrote… Doesn’t that sound dramatic? Really, it’s a matter of conclusion… I’m going to say this issue is of the same standard as last month’s – pretty good, far better than might be expected. The thing is, we’re still in the area of Dark Kara, a path so […]

Superman #17 review

This is Superman patrolling in the Silver Age. This is Superman patrolling today. Isn‘t that glorious? The image comes courtesy of illustrator Kevin Maguire and colourist Paul Mounts, the idea comes from the mind of Brian Bendis. Different angles on Superman’s powers and personality are becoming his speciality, and we’re certainly getting an example of […]
