5 DC comics heroes I’d like to see in the Arrowverse next!

Writer: Joshua WilliamsonArtist: Christian DuceRating: 7/10 After last week’s bumper sized issue, we got back into the thick of things with this week’s issue of The Flash.

Is Marvel really about to take over DC comics? My take on the recent rumour.

With Dan Didio stepping down as co-publisher of DC comics, DC seem to be at a crossroads. Comic sales are at an all time low and there’s talk that unless DC’s upcoming 5G initiative is successful, DC could cease publishing comics all together. I’m a huge DC comics fan. It was characters like Superman andContinue reading “Is Marvel really about to take over DC comics? My take on the recent rumour.”

The Flash #88 Review

Writer: Joshua WilliamsonArtist: Howard PorterRating: 3.5/5 For the most part, I’ve enjoyed Joshua Williamson’s Flash run. Since 2016, I’ve found his book to be consistently enjoyable and always looked forward to it.

My Birds of Prey review!

Director: Cathy Yan Rating: 4/5 Now I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t all that interested in seeing this movie. The Birds of Prey weren’t a comic book team I’d read much of at all and having Harley Quinn join the team just felt like any excuse to continue to over expose the popular character. ThatContinue reading “My Birds of Prey review!”

Arrow Finale: My Review!

Too often we’re left disappointed with how our favourite shows close their curtain. For some reason, it seems tv shows tend to struggle to find a satisfying conclusion to their shows and often fall short of their die hard fans expectations. There may be some who say Arrow’s farewell was a disappointment, but for whatContinue reading “Arrow Finale: My Review!”

Thank you Arrow!

I remember when Smallville ended. I remember watching the two hour finale and questioning what could fill the void left by my favourite tv show of all time. Back then there wasn’t many superhero shows out there. That was all about to change! When Arrow was announced, first I was excited. Then I was disappointedContinue reading “Thank you Arrow!”

How Smallville (and Michael Rosenbaum) gave us the best live action Lex Luthor to date.

Growing up Lex Luthor was always thought of as a bit of a joke. Sure he was Superman’s arch enemy, but through his Gene Hackman movie appearances (as great as Hackman was in the role) and John Shea’s stint on Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, he was often used as comic reliefContinue reading “How Smallville (and Michael Rosenbaum) gave us the best live action Lex Luthor to date.”

Batman/Superman #6

Writer: Joshua WilliamsonArtist: David MarquezRating: 2.5/5 When he first debuted, I loved The Batman Who Laughs. He felt fresh and was a very interesting character. I was excited about the stories that could be told with him, but over 2 years later and the concept has grown stale. In my opinion, he’s been far tooContinue reading “Batman/Superman #6”

Review: Superman #19

Writer: Brian Michael BendisArtist: Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Danny Miki, Julio Ferreira and Oclair AlbertRating: 4/5 This book was one I’d been really looking forward to. It had been quite a while since I’d been this intrigued for a comic book to come out. In the last issue Superman did the unthinkable, he revealed toContinue reading “Review: Superman #19”

The upcoming Superman and Lois TV show: Exciting new venture or huge missed opportunity?

The Rise Of Kylo Ren #1 and #2

Writer: Charles Soule Artist: Will Sliney Rating: 4/5 From probably the age of 3, I’ve always been a Star Wars fan. From movies, to the animated shows, to the video games, I’ve always consumed as much Star Wars content as I could. I’ve also read number Star Wars novels, but despite being a massive comicContinue reading “The Rise Of Kylo Ren #1 and #2”

The under appreciated Spider-Man The Animated Series and why it was so good!

Growing up in the 1990s, my first introduction to superheroes and the comic book world was through the numerous cartoons DC and Marvel released during the decade. We were blessed with classics like Batman The Animated Series, X-Men The Animated Series and Superman The Animated Series and whilst these were deservedly praised, I’ve always feltContinue reading “The under appreciated Spider-Man The Animated Series and why it was so good!”
