Justice League #51 review

The Flash, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern and Superman are flying back to Earth after the gruelling space saga of the last few issues. In the back of their minds, something is speaking to the individuals heroes, digging around in their subconscious. Back in the Now, they realise that their course has changed. They’re heading […]

Justice League #49 review

Wonder Woman, Flash, Batman, Superman and Green Lantern are on the planet Trotha after rescuing its children from danger in space and freeing the people from a despotic queen. But… consequences.

Dark Nights: Death Metal #1 review

Here’s Sgt Rock talking about turds. That’s cool and funny, apparently. Here’s The Batman Who Laughs. Again. Here’s a world ruled by said Joker/Bruce Wayne mix, full of his dark Bat-Knights and Groblins and an emaciated Swamp Thing and a defiant Wonder Woman and a mysterious prisoner in robes… … hey, those robes aren’t purple! […]

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 […]

Justice League #40 review

A rocket ship crash lands in a field in the rural United States. It’s not a Kryptonian baby, though, it’s a strange visitor from the planet Daxam – Sodam Yat. The former Green Lantern is here to warn the world of a threat. According to Yat, the Eradicator’s forces don’t have the traditional Daxamite weakness […]

Supergirl #38 review

A canine’s sense of smell is said to be 40 times greater than a person’s. So heaven help Krypto the Superdog in your average city back alley. Still, he does pick up the scent of his pal Kara, last seen facing a vision of her corrupter, The Batman Who Laughs, in Supergirl #37. Krypto tracks […]

Supergirl #37 review

Kara has been infected by poison created by The Batman Who Laughs, but rather than fall in with his gang of giggling geeks, she goes it alone. This sniggering Supergirl actually wants to help people. She’s approaching the acts of attempted heroism from a position of superiority, but is certainly not out to hurt the […]

Justice League #37 review

So here we are, at chapter 37 of the current Justice League story. Yay. Will it ever end, this tale of the Totality and Apex Lex and the broken Source Wall and three – count ’em, three – Monitors and the Dark Multiverse and Prenuptia or whatever her name is… Am I the only person […]

Supergirl Annual #2 review

The bad news. Supergirl has been sacrificed at the altar of the Batman Who Laughs crossover. The good news. Writer Robert Venditti finds a workaround so he can tell us a story of the last days of Krypton. And boy, do I love those. I must have read a dozen DC tales down the years […]
