Justice League #67 review

And once again we have a cover that seems to belong to a different month. Nowhere in this issue do Black Canary and Green Arrow fight a gang of Deathstroke cosplayers. They show up at the end, but meet only Lois Lane’s supposed brother, who we now learn goes by the rather hilarious ‘Leonardo Lane’, […]

This month’s Justice League main strip is a day in the life story. Well, mainly. The first few pages take place off Earth, away from the Justice League, as the United Planets prepare for the trial of a rogue superman, the Synmar Utopica. On the world of Daxam, we meet the team of heroes who […]

Infinite Frontier #1 review

Gotham in the daytime is really rather beautiful. Who knew? It’s especially appealing when, look, up in the sky, we have original Green Lantern Alan Scott slamming time-twisting upstart Extant with an old-worlde steam engine. And he’s not alone – Alan’s accompanied by fellow heroes Mr Terrific and Hawkgirl, and from the darker side of […]
