Blue & Gold #8 review

Ryan Sook’s movie poster cover is the perfect opening to the final issue of a spectacularly good-natured mini-series. Two shining heroes getting great reviews for their endless good deeds.

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. Four of the first five pages are current Kid Flash Wallace being distracted by cousin Wally’s entreaties to skip class at the current ragtag version of Titans Academy. That’s a lot of space in a […]

A few names are dropped, but if you’ve not been making notes, good luck working out who all the Titans Academy students […]

Teen Titans Academy #12 review

There’s one line of dialogue in Teen Titans Academy #12 that you can take as the TLDR version of this review This comic is a mess. It’s being cancelled in May, but if this were the last issue it’d be a mercy killing. We have had a few good issues, concentrating on the better new […]
