Summertime 2016 has not been very kind to DC Comics-based personalities looking to shine consistently like their big screen Marvel Comics counter-parts. Following the super-sized dud that was ‘Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice’, released a few months ago, must really put some major pressure on Warner Bros. to gamble on ensuring that the presence of ‘Suicide Squad’ does […]
One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]
The latest brouhaha from the world of comic-books is the resignation of the co-creators of the Kate Kane story-line for DC’s Batwoman, with creators J.H. Williams and W. Haden Blackman posting on their blog that DC had ordered them to scupper the wedding of ex-soldier Kate Kane (aka Batwoman) to her female partner, lawyer Maggie […]
Superboy’s Legion book 1 of 2 by Mark Farmer and Alan Davis After reading ‘Modern Masters Volume One: Alan Davis’ from TwoMorrows Publishing last month, I earmarked a couple series he was involved in to have a look at his work. With a Legion Of Super-Heroes connection, I had to have a look at ‘Superboy’s […]
I’ll confess from the start that other than the LSH, I’m not fully up to speed with all the changes that DC initiated with ‘The New 52!’ Reading this issue of ‘Batman Detective’ and the references within, the Dark Knight has lost another Robin already and his other Bat-associates aren’t exactly happy with him over […]
an article by: GF Willmetts Something that comicbook fans have often debated over the decades is just who is the most powerful in their particular favoured universe. It becomes complicated when mixing across realities, mostly because the criteria for abilities varies. I mean, if you had to match Doctor Strange against Doctor Fate, the latter […]
Legion Of Super-Heroes Volume 1: Hostile World by Paul Levitz, Francis Portela and Walter Simonson (comic-book review).
If there’s one aspect of the DC Universe that can be affected by the reality changes in the current time period, then it’s the 30th-31st century which houses the Legion Of Super-Heroes continuity that has existed since the early 1960s. Originally seen as a means to allow Superboy to be part of a team of […]
Legion Lost: Run From Tomorrow Volume One by Fabian Nicieza, Pete Woods and Tom DeFalco (comic-book review).
I haven’t read any of DC’s ‘New 52’ material yet but there was a need to see what changes had been made to Element Lad for an article I’m preparing. As there are two ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ graphic novel releases from the big change over, dividing the team, it made sense to read them both […]
The new trailer for Arrow (as in Green: we hate explaining that, but hey-ho) has a whole host of bad guys from the D.C. comic-book version… such luminaries as Deathstroke, China White and Deadshot… and John Barrowman! What, Torchwood is in the new Arrow too? Come on, that’s a crossover too far, isn’t it?
