Comic Review – The Life Of Captain Marvel #1

Before she turned 30, USAF Major Carol Danvers was a top-notch pilot, a highly-decorated intelligence agent and the head of security for NASA. It was in this capacity that she befriended an alien named Mar-Vell and was caught in the explosion of a piece of advanced technology that gave her unparalleled superpowers. Since that time, […]

Superman #1 Banner

Comic Review – Superman #1

A SPOILER warning before we start. If you haven’t read Man of Steel #1-6, which directly lead into this book, you may want to do so. A summary on the first page of this book will spoil it for you otherwise. So will this review. Please bear that in mind and thank you for reading. […]

Batman #50 Catwoman #1 Banner

Comic Review – Batman #50 & Catwoman #1

There is no real way to review Catwoman #1 without also discussing Batman #50 and the long awaited wedding of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. The one informs the other, as the cover of Catwoman #1 helpfully informs the reader that they should read Batman #50 before opening it up. This proves ironic, given that The […]

Captain America #1 Teaser

Comic Review – Captain America #1

Steve Rogers was a loyal American, who wanted to serve his country as a soldier during World War II – not for glory or out of bloodlust, but because Steve Rogers believed in The Dream. The American Dream. The biggest Dream there ever was. The most advanced science of the age gave the sickly Rogers […]

Comic Review – Detective Comics #983

Back in The Dark Age of Comics (roughly 1986 to 2000, by most historians’ reckoning), there was a rather odd divide in the DC Comics Universe. If you read only the comics starring Batman, he was portrayed as a lone Dark Knight and was considered an urban legend by most of the people of Gotham […]

ony Stark Iron Man #1 Banner

Comic Review – Tony Stark: Iron Man #1

Once upon a time there was a poor little rich boy who made his own toys to keep himself amused. In time he became a poor little rich man, whose toys made him richer still, though poor in spirit. That changed after some very bad men took the poor little rich man away from his […]

Plastic Man #1 Banner

Comic Review – Plastic Man #1

Patrick “Eel” O’Brian was as slippery and slimy as the animal that prompted his underworld nickname. He was a career criminal. A con artist. A petty thief. A cheap thug. The sort of sordid individual whose best effort to clean up and straighten out his life ended with him taking a job as the night […]

Comic Review – Justice League #1

In the wake of the invasion by The Dark Multiverse, the destruction of The Source Wall and the coming of The Omega Titans, The Justice League have expanded their ranks. Though a core team still exists, most of The World’s Finest Heroes have been recruited to act in a reserve capacity to face those threats even […]

Man of Steel #1 Teaser

Comic Review – Man Of Steel #1

  What can be said about The Man of Steel #1? Does it dramatically redefine the Superman mythology? No. Does it seem like it’s about to radically change everything we know about Superman and Krypton? No. Does it seem like the coming of Brian Michael Bendis to DC Comics was over-hyped? A little bit. Is it […]

The Further Adventures Of Nick Wilson #5 Cover

Comic Review – The Further Adventures of Nick Wilson #5

It’s the opening day of The Nick Wilson Experience – a museum devoted to Earth’s first (and so far only) superhero. All-American Nick Wilson lost his powers almost as quickly as he gained them, falling far from the heights of fame and fortune he once enjoyed. He had been squeaking out a shameful living as […]

Quicksilver No Surrender #1 Cover

Comic Review – Quicksilver: No Surrender #1

Pietro Maximoff is the fastest man in the world. When it comes to running, there is no one better. Hence why, when two immortals with a fondness for games incapacitated most of Earth’s heroes for the sake of a wager, he was chosen to run a race for the sake of The Earth itself. With […]

Justice League No Justice #1 Cover

Comic Review – Justice League: No Justice #1

It was Earth’s darkest hour. The Collector of Worlds known as Brainiac had come and immediately sought battle with the World’s Finest heroes. The Justice League, The Teen Titans – even The Suicide Squad faced him. They failed and were captured, taken to the deepest reaches of space. The fact that they had been spared […]

Red Sonja Tarzan #1 Cover

Comic Review – Red Sonja/Tarzan #1

Though best known for her work on DC Comics’ Birds of Prey, Batgirl and Wonder Woman, writer Gail Simone has become equally famous for her work in the sword and sorcery genre in recent years. She first found glory with a revamp of Red Sonja that proved popular enough that it was quickly expanded from a […]

Action Comics #1000 Cover

Comic Review – Action Comics #1000

Let us take it as a basic truth that Action Comics #1000 is a book of some significance. It is the first of DC Comics’ series to hit the 1000 issues milestone, despite a number of divergences where the book was renumbered during those times when it was thought that starting everything over at #1 […]

Domino #1 Cover

Comic Review – Domino #1

Confession: I don’t know much about Domino. To be honest, I don’t know much about any of the X-Force/Six-Pack/Liefeldian side of the 1990s X-Men, because what little I’ve read from that time period suggested the characters had more pouches than personality traits. Here is everything I knew about Domino. She was a mercenary who worked […]

Comic Review – Dark Nights: Metal #3

There is nothing Batman hates more than a mystery. He became a master detective, not because he relishes solving a puzzle, but because he cannot bear to be ignorant.

Comic Review – Angelic #1

Science-fiction frequently acts as a parable for real-world problems, examining big issues through the lens of a familiar yet different world. Logan’s Run explored the perils of ageism and the worship of youth in a society. Soylent Green built itself around the problem of overpopulation. Even Planet Of The Apes was truly about racism, government […]
