War For Earth 3 #2 review

The Titans have been teleported to Earth 3 to help Rick Flag’s unofficial Suicide Squad stop Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad taking over the world. Or something.

Lois Lane #12 review

Over the last few months I’ve moaned a bit about the freewheeling nature of this maxi-series; plotlines that seemed fundamental to the story vanished for months at a time.

Lois Lane #4 review

The final page of this instalment of the Lois Lane maxi-series tells us that next issue is to be called ‘No answers, only questions’. Actually, that would apply to every issue so far, including this one. We start where we left off last time, with a near-naked, very embarrassed Lois in the shower, where she […]

Lois Lane #3 review

Reporter Lois Lane has witnessed the murder of a dodgy businessman. By her side is private detective Renee Montoya, whom she’d hired to keep her safe.
