DC Reboot: Week 2

So, with week 2 of the reboot/relaunch, I have to admit, as someone who was quite sceptical about the whole thing, there's a lot to recommend it here. Its really no surprise that Action Comics was excellent. A Superman whose powers aren't quite up there yet, and a nice reference to Smallville early on (at... Continue Reading →

Justice League #1

Well, there's really one big news story dominating comics at the moment.  At somepoint I'll come back to talk about Flashpoint, but it has long been overshadowed by the reboot that's finally arrived after several months of hype.  And relaunching the DC Universe falls to the obvious title, with the new volume of Justice League...

War of the Green Lanterns Aftermath

*sigh* I've gotten so bad at keeping up with my blogging.  Anyway, War of the Green Lanterns is over, and Tony Bedard has been firmly handed the keys to the car while Geoff's away plotting the reboot.  While Peter Tomasi's Emerald Warriors has shifted to one-and-done issues featuring Guy, Green Lantern Corps picks up the...

Green Lantern #67

And so, despite the delays, the finale of War of the Green Lanterns finally arrives with some big shocks in store as Geoff Johns plants the seeds for the next storylines as Krona is being defeated. But did anyone else think it all felt a bit rushed? Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the... Continue Reading →

Emerald Warriors #11

War of the Green Lanterns is over.  Err, well.  Sort of.  In the pages of Emerald Warriors at least. This month's issue is a bit of an odd beast.  The solicits for Emerald Warriors had clearly marked its last two issues as being to do with the aftermath of War of the Green Lanterns.  ...

Green Lantern Review

So, after all the trailers, I finally got the chance to see the hotly-anticipated Green Lantern movie last weekend.  But in the face of a critical mauling, what did I actually think of it?   Beware, as I'm not going to be shy about spoilers in the following discussion. Well, in a nutshell, I enjoyed... Continue Reading →

War of the Green Lanterns – May

Ok, still playing catch up here, but thankfully the last part of War of the Green Lanterns has been pushed back to July giving me a chance. However, despite this, I can't help but have a problem with the entire GL main line of books skipping a month, especially when we're only one issue from... Continue Reading →

DC Comics to Relaunch

Okay, I've got a tonne of comics posts waiting on me sorting them out, but given the massive news last night, I just felt I had to weigh in. Okay, so for those that missed it, DC is relaunching its entire line of superhero comics at the end of August.  The end of Flashpoint is... Continue Reading →

Emerald Warriors #9

After two issues I would describe as incredibly enjoyable, but not really packing many surprises, Peter Tomasi gets some very nice stuff to play with. While Kyle and John are still struggling with their rings, Hal and Guy quickly take charge to cover their escape to the lower-levels of Oa. To an extent it could... Continue Reading →

Green Lantern August Solicits

The August solicits for DC are now out, and the Green Lantern ones bring a few surprises. Most importantly, is the appearance of Kyle Rayner on the cover of Green Lantern Corps.  His absence in the previous months solicits had not gone unnoticed, leading to the popular theory that Kyle was the Green Lantern that...
