Review: Green Arrow #43 – “The Night Birds Part 3: The Hood”

Ben Percy’s first arc comes to an end. Does it make a bulls-eye or miss the target? Green Arrow is not a character that is awfully hard to get right, although he has undergone many changes in the last 75 years. Since the relaunch of the New 52, he’s proven to be a character that …

Review: Green Arrow #41 – “The Night Birds Part 1”

Krul and Keith Giffen’s initial issues, Ann Nocenti’s incongruous run that involved …

Review: Headspace #1

A new digital comic takes a trip into a town that has a very unique frame of mind. The only question is: who owns the mind that’s framing it? It’s difficult to put Australian writer Ryan K. Lindsay in a box, such is the nature of his diverse portfolio. While international readers may know him from …

Review: Superman/Wonder Woman #1

Superman and Wonder Woman are the New 52’s hottest couple, but does that make them the hottest title as well? When Superman/Wonder Woman was first announced, many expressed legitimate concern over Wonder Woman’s potential relegation to the role of “Superman’s girlfriend”. This argument seemed somewhat alarmist, as few people expressed similar concerns over the release …
