Review: Detective Comics #30

Holy. Freaking. Crap.   First of all, let's just take a moment, and look at this cover. This is one of the most beautiful covers I've ever seen. The colors, the silhouettes teasing what...

Review: Forever Evil: Arkham War #6

It all ends here. The big finale. The grand crescendo. This was a big letdown. To me, you can make or break a story based on how it ends, and this ending didn't deliver. Bane finally goes back to...

Review: Detective Comics #29

Well, Gothtopia has ended. John Layman's run is over. I must admit, when I got Detective Comics #27, Layman's introduction to Gothtopia was among my favorite of the stories, and I found it...

Review: Forever Evil: Arkham War #5

Well, with just two issues to go, Tomasi's story for Gotham's villians has finally picked up. Whether it pays off, we'll have to wait a month to see, but this issue was the best of this...

DCU Spotlight: Review: Earth 2 #20

DCU Spotlight: Review: Earth 2 Annual #2

This comic… So good. I will get into SPOILERS. So if you don't want to be spoiled, just skip to the very last paragraph, and rating.   The book is set 20 years from today, back in the...

Review: Forever Evil: Arkham War #4

Here we have William Cobb, a Talon, sleeping in his chamber, peacefully, while Bane is talking to him. Trying to coax him into waking up. Bane quickly gives up, pulls Cobb out of the chamber, and...

Review: Batman/Superman #7

I'm not going to go too long about this, because I was greatly dissapointed in this run, so far. This is the last time I will be reviewing this book, and I thank the Batman Universe for not...

DCU Spotlight: Review: Suicide Squad #25

We begin hearing from Amanda Waller, telling us how Belle Reve prison was born, and how it progressed, becoming a more hig security prison. It seems as though they have decided to change King...

Review: Batman/Superman #6

I'm going to be honest with you… I'm not really sure what's going on here. I was hoping that after the last issue, this one would immediately clear some things up, but it...

DCU Spotlight: Review: Suicide Squad #25

This issue picks up were issue 24 left off, with a team of the "Reverse Suicide Squad" has been sent to stop the Suicide Squad. This Reverse team is made up of Power Girl, Warrant, Soldier,...

Review: Forever Evil: Arkham War #2

When I first heard about this book, I was thinking it was going to be a direct tie-in to the main Forever Evil story. However, it's been a pretty nice read all by itself. Yeah, it would be...
