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.

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.

S.W.O.R.D. & Comic Book Reviews for 4/21

This week, Marvel with SWORD contends for the best singular issue of the year, while half the week falls flat. I only picked up one DC book today, Justice League, and the rest were X-Men.  The highs of Marvel with SWORD and Way of X were really high, and the lows of Justice League and […]
