Review: Harley Quinn #5

Harley is truly punk and beautiful. The first page of Harley Quinn #5, with Harley as a Punk Rock Chick singing about pizza pie, is truly awesome.   We cut to night-time Coney Island, Brooklyn,...

Review: Nightwing #6

Night of the Monster Men may well be my least favorite bat-event in the last 10 years – which isn’t to say it doesn’t have some redeeming moments, but they haven’t lifted this event...
