This Month in Comics: September 2017

By | Oct 3, 2017 | Columns

Ahhhh, September – leaves turning, nights getting longer, air growing crisper. It’s a time of year where rumblings of a dark multiverse probably feel most prescient. “Dark Nights: Metal” cast a shadow over DC with its first wave of crossovers and evil batmen one-shots. Across the rack, Marvel’s “Legacy” cured the post event-hangover that had […]

That’s weirder than usual right? In the wider world of comics, the TV season came to a close, and I’m pretty sure half the […]
