Review: Superior Spider-Man #1

By | Jan 10, 2013 | Reviews

It’s nearly impossible to discuss this issue without spoiling the events of “Amazing Spider-Man” #700.

Review: Batman Incorporated #6

By | Jan 4, 2013 | Reviews

This truly is a special book. Acting as a last remnant of the pre-New 52 DC universe, featuring characters that are steeped in continuity and history, it feels wholly unlike its sister bat-books or any DC book in general. It’s a testament to Morrison as writer that this book continues to exist. It’s mind-boggling how […]
