Icon & Rocket Return! Comic Book Reviews 7/28

It feels like we’re under the second Reign of the Supermen with three Superman books out this week, two of them being new number ones. We have the long awaited Superman: Son of Kal-El, headed by Tom Taylor, and the continually amazing Action Comics. Both stun and amaze, but the most important one, is the […]

Superman & the Authority & Comic Book Reviews 7/21

Who knew Superman would be taking the lead in back-to-back weeks? And not just him, his cousin, Supergirl has one of my favorite issues of the year. Between Superman & the Authority, and Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow, fans of the Super-fam have a lot to eat. I love it, especially as I get back into […]

House of El Returns & Comic Book Reviews 7/14

Future State returns to us once again with the Action Comics 2021 Annual! It brings back a litany of characters introduced in Future State: House of El, which includes the best girl in DC, Theand’r. Yeah, there was no way Theand’r shows up in a comic book again and not be the first thing I […]

Why Ostrander’s Spectre is a Tragic Hero

The Spectre is an underrated favorite character of mine. Almost as old as Superman, he first appeared in 1940. He was even made by the same writer, Jerry Spiegel, with a co-credit from one Bernard Baily.  He has a storied history, playing a significant role in many of its events, particularly in Crisis on Infinite […]

X-Men #1 & Comic Book Reviews 7/7

After Jonathan Hickman’s superb X-Men series about the mutants of Krakoa, we have a new superhero team that gives what the naysayers have been asking for. While I would have preferred what Hickman was doing, the new creative team is doing great stuff. This is one of the best #1’s that I have read in […]

X-Factor & Comic Book Reviews 6/30

While the Hellfire Gala comes to anticlimactic and insulting close with X-Factor, Titans rise with their 2021 Yearbook issue. There’s nothing but surprises this week, with the comics I’m reading. For the most part, that’s a good thing, but X-Factor’s horrendous decisions threaten to taint it. It’s likely best, to talk about the worst book […]

Infinite Frontier & Comic Book Reviews 6/23

The Hellfire makes its rocky way towards its end with three more issues, just as DC starts and interesting path with its Infinite Frontier miniseries. DC is finally giving us what we want, a more open DC Universe. If only it didn’t feel so disingenuous, as the major characters and their titles limp a bit […]

Static #1 & Comic Book Reviews 6/16

DC has been going ham these last few weeks with showing off their diverse heroes, but this week is the beginning of something more long term. Representation isn’t in just a one-shot, but in the start of a new series about a classic hero. Static returns with a new #1, and it’s… intriguing.  The Hellfire […]

DC vs Mortal Kombat 2?!

So it’s been over 2 years since Mortal Kombat 11 came out, 4 years since Injustice 2, and over ten since Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe came out. Yeah, time flies, but that can only mean one thing… more theorizing on what the next NetherRealm game will be.  There have been a ton of rumors […]

DC Pride #1: DC Series to Greenlight

Spoilers for DC Pride #1. A lot like DC Festival of Heroes, DC Pride is a book dedicated to representing people not represented enough in media. The LGBTQ+ community is underrepresented in superhero comics in particular. There are only two DC series out with a LGBT character in the lead, Harley Quinn and Crush & […]
