“Doomsday Clock” #7

By | Sep 28, 2018 | Reviews

“Doomsday Clock” is now after its halfway mark and this issue could not be more representative of that. While it still retains its core structure, that of the seminal “Watchmen” series, Johns and Frank seem to intentionally allow new elements in, almost as if a more traditional comic book narrative pervades the “Watchmen-style.” By doing […]

“Amazing Spider-Man” #6

By | Sep 28, 2018 | Reviews

It always made sense that Nick Spencer would take on Spider-Man. After all, the most celebrated superhero comic of his career was about five B-list to Z-list Spidey villains living out their loser lives. Spencer’s first arc ‘Back to Basics’ showed a lot of promise but inexplicably focused on Peter Parker dealing with a not-clone. […]

“Dredd: Final Judgement” #1

By | Sep 27, 2018 | Reviews

For “Judge Dredd” fans, the 2012 film Dredd was exactly what they had been hoping for for many years. Unfortunately, the movie was a huge box office bomb, making back only a tiny fraction of its budget and the two planned sequels were never made. Since then, 2000 A.D. has graced us with a couple […]
