While there’s been much speculation as to what is the purpose of the reshoots and how much control Joss Whedon will have. Probably the biggest indication of this is this report.

REVIEW: Cyborg: Rebirth #1 – Part Reboot, Part Retread, All Too Familiar

REVIEW: Cyborg: Rebirth #1 – Part Reboot, Part Retread, All Too Familiar

I don’t envy the creative team on Cyborg: Rebirth #1. The issue suffers from some of the worst problems that have dogged this line of one-shots.

FEATURE FRIDAY: Re-Visting some Representations of Heroism in DC Comics’s Flashpoint

With the two year anniversary of the beginning of the 52 universe on the horizon and a new summer event with Trinity War I wanted to reflect a bit on what I thought made the goodbye summer event to the previous incarnation of the DCU, Flashpoint, guided by Geoff Johns, something worth remembering and re-reading. The substance of the Flashpoint series across all the titles, and granted at some points the crossover books  were at times a…
