Nocterra #1 review

The darkest hour is just before the dawn. But dawn hasn’t come for a long time in the world of Nocterra. It was just another day for Denver schoolgirl Val when the sky went dark, and 13 years later, it’s still pitch black. And everyone knows there are monsters lurking in the dark… The new […]

Batman #100 review

It’s his greatest triumph. After a full-on battle with his arch foe, he lives to fight another day. Happy Birthday, dear Joker… Batman may as well not be in this book, for how effective he is. Batgirl looks good, reviving her Oracle persona. Nightwing, his memories restored, gives the Joker’s goons a good kicking. Red […]

Batman #91 review

Lots of bars have comedy nights, but few get to host the Joker. Barman Brent is less than thrilled, though, as the Clown Prince of Crime is spouting expository dialogue so vague that it’s not really very useful.

Bad cops are the norm – very bad cops. And the police commissioner doesn’t exactly inspire trust. And the Batman? He’s Thomas Wayne, parallel world pop of […]

Heroes in Crisis #9 review

It’s the final issue of Heroes in Crisis and the message we’re meant to take away is that Hope is accepting responsibility, bearing your burdens, and carrying on regardless.  For me, Hope is continuing to buy a series that, more often than not, just annoyed me. In the end, Hope equals stupidity – I feel […]

Heroes in Crisis #7 review

Enough! I agree with Superman after reading this issue, a real step back from last month’s decent chapter. As originally announced, this number would have been the finale, but writer Tom King had two extra comics added to the run to, supposedly, go deeper into the story. Given this issue isn’t drawn by added artists […]
