Hawkman #29 review

‘Hawkman is ended at last’, cries villain Anton Hastor on the opening page of this issue. He’s not wrong. This is the final issue of the latest series starring Carter and Shayera Hall. And a very fine issue it is, capping a series that’s benefited for a consistent creator vision. Robert Venditti gives us the […]

Shazam! #15 review

What now?’ asks our hero on the wonderful Brandon Peterson cover for Shazam! #15 and well he might – it’s the last issue of the latest series starring the hero formerly known as Captain Marvel.

Shazam! #14 review

BECAUSE NO ONE DEMANDED IT! He’s back. Superboy Prime, Last Son of an Earth long vanished from the multiverse, back to ruin another story. This current Shazam! series may not feature my favourite take on the Marvel Family, but it’s had its moments. Here, though, as he ends his lengthy story, writer Geoff Johns falls […]

The Flash: Fastest Man Alive #8 review

This week’s DC Digital First Flash offering from the editorial office of Andrew Marino features two eight-page stories, both written by Dave Wielgosz, and while they’re different in tone to one another, they’re both pithy, punchy, satisfying reads.
