Dark Nights: Metal #2

The Batman Hater Loves Dark Nights: Metal #2

OK, I’m officially on board with this story now. While the first issue of Dark Nights: Metal was pretty good, I wasn’t ready to proclaim its quality from the rooftops or anything. I wasn’t completely enthralled, but it had merit and deserved some praise for that. That has changed with Metal #2. With the world […]

Twelve Thoughts About Twelve Comics Today – New Avengers, Secret Avengers, Teen Titans, Daredevil, The Twelve, Rebel Blood, Bloodstrike, L’il Depressed Boy, Blackhawks, Flash, Aquaman And Battle Scars

DC Relaunch: Wildstorm, Westerns And War

DC Comics appear to have run out of news organisations to give their new relaunch comics to. So they just decided to do it themselves this time. Expect Superman books news tomorrow. So we get the return of Stormwatch #1, the Wildstorm title that preceded The Authority, with Jack Hawksmoor, Midnighter, Apollo and Martian Manhunter. […]
