Some Kind of Suicide Squad: “Get Joker!”

By | Aug 7, 2022 | Reviews

We’re taking a break from digging for artifacts for a while to return to Some Kind of Suicide Squad. Originally when I did this last year there was supposed to be two more entries, the Black Label Suicide Squad minis “Get Joker” and “Blaze” and then for various pipeline delivery reasons they kept getting delayed, […]

“A-Next” #9

By | Aug 6, 2022 | Reviews

The late nineties of superhero comics have always been such a fascinating wild west to me. I know so little about this period that is building off the industry’s most significant recession. With so few eyes drawn to it, it’s ripe for uncovering fascinating hidden gems or unreadable stinkers. This year I’ve dug up the […]

Sacrament Feature Reviews
“Sacrament” #1

By | Aug 5, 2022 | Reviews

The devil works hard, but Peter Milligan and Marcelo Frusin work harder in “Sacrament” #1. Bold genre mashups are often flashy with an intriguing premise, but with little substance beyond the conceit that two things that don’t go together are now…together! “Sacrament” #1, however, delivers. The first issue has a lot going for it, and […]

DC League of Super-Pets

By | Aug 4, 2022 | Movies, Reviews

Right off the bat, you might be asking yourself who is this movie for? Is it like the Krypto the Superdog cartoons and geared towards younger kids? Would it be more like The Lego Batman Movie and be an all ages comedy? I think this question is answered in the very first scene with the […]

“Batman” #594-596

By | Jul 29, 2022 | Reviews

Just when I thought we were settling into a nice rhythm of stories, we get these three issues of wildly differing quality. And to top it off two of the three are baffling tie-ins to some line-wide event, or at least across the bat line, that derails us even more. Why DC? Why?
