Strange Tales #1 review

Posted on September 8, 2009 at 8:44pm 9 Comments

DC let independent and small press creators loose on their characters a few years ago and the result was the overwhelmingly charming, often funny, Bizarro Comics. Marvel does the same thing and we get Curate's Egg Comics. Sorry, I mean Strange Tales. Good in parts, but not quite good enough.



I'm all for out of continuity strips that allow creators new to the characters to offer a new perspective, or just have fun, and when it works, Strange… Continue

The Brave and the Bold #25 review

Posted on July 20, 2009 at 6:41pm 1 Comment

For a fella whose comic's been cancelled the Blue Beetle is certainly prominent - he's in Teen Titans every month, has a strip in the back of Booster Gold and here he is co-starring in Brave and Bold. Mind, I'm not surprised DC creators like the character so much: he has an interesting look, great supporting cast and, most importantly, a thoroughly engaging personality. His youthful perspective and sense of humour has Jaime Reyes stealing any story he… Continue

Justice League: Cry for Justice #1

Posted on July 7, 2009 at 4:54am 16 Comments

Green Lantern Hal Jordan lays down the law to the Justice League, annoyed that the team isn't proactive enough in terms of going after villains and ending their threat for good. He reminds them that as the local representative of the Guardians of the Universe, he is the law. And he's going to step up before more heroes such as Batman and the Martian Manhunter get killed. So, with the ever-loyal Green Arrow, he exits the League satellite to do ...… Continue

Let's get Wonder Woman the big numbers!

Posted on June 24, 2009 at 6:37pm 1 Comment

She's beaten everyone from the Cheetah to Darkseid but there's one foe Wonder Woman is finding truly implacable - Dan DiDio.

DC's Executive Editor has so far resisted all calls to give the Amazon a 600th issue, reflecting her position in comics history - even though recent years have seen such books as Superman, Fantastic Four, Thor and, soon, Captain America, dump the new volumes for big numbers.



On Newsarama.com Mr DiDio recently… Continue

Captain Britain and MI13 #14 review

Posted on June 22, 2009 at 8:54pm 1 Comment

Well here's a turn-up for the books and no mistake - the apocalyptic events of last issue were a feint, a dream sparked in Dracula by the demon Plokta as a favour to Pete Wisdom. My first reaction was 'jolly cheap, wot?' but writer Paul Cornell quickly won me over. OK, so Faiza and Pete aren't dead but that means Faiza and Pete aren't dead. In a vampire-filled storyline they are, in the nicest possible sense, undead.

And while the 'it was all… Continue

I see the Captain is all alonio on the masthead - has the Legion of Superfluous Heroes been disbanded, then? It's a Bold New Direction!

Thanks. I tried a number of times to join the old board but the system just didn't work right. I tried contacting the administrators but since it went through the same system, I never got feedback...
Anyway, I'm here now.
