Action Comics #1018 review

Today, the Legion of Doom is trouncing Superman and his Justice League partners. Earlier, Metropolis fire chief Melody Moore has news for Clark Kent. Six months ago, dogged young reporter Robinson Goode has a run-in with shady scientists from Star Labs. In order of interest, I’d say the origin of Red Cloud is most compelling, […]

Supergirl #36 review

If you can’t say something nice… Well, yes, but I review this comic much every month and skipping an issue because I didn’t enjoy it is basically me saying, don’t bother.

Justice League #25 review

It’s the 25th issue of the current Justice League book, complete with shiny new logo, and it’s feels like the 400th. The Source Wall is still broken, the threat of Perpetua yet looms, Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom are once more up to all kinds of shenanigans and, frankly, it’s rather exhausting. Which […]
