REVIEW: Superman #18 – Superman: Reborn Begins

REVIEW: Superman #18 – Superman: Reborn Begins

It’s an interesting time for Superman fans, as Superman #18 proves. First off, the post-Rebirth era has seen the New 52 version of Superman killed off and replaced by the prior version of Superman from before the new 52’s line-wide shake up. But since this switcheroo took place, Superman has been observed by a mysterious figure names Mr. Oz, who has kidnapped several DC characters and has an obsessive interest in Superman, claiming that neither…

REVIEW: Superman #15 – Crisis With Multiple Supes

REVIEW: Superman #15 – Crisis With Multiple Supes

Superman #15 is the second chapter in the “Multiplicity” arc, a storyline that sees Supermen and Superwomen from across multiple Earths under threat from mysterious forces for as yet unknown reasons. It’s a crackerjack issue, albeit one I think that is a little bit hampered by its large rotating art team. Nevertheless, it further confirms that the Superman-family of titles, and this title in particular, is really nailing the kind of large-scale, imaginative adventures under…

DISCOURSE DISH: DCEU v Supergirl – Tale of Two Supermen

DISCOURSE DISH: DCEU v Supergirl – Tale of Two Supermen

This week, true to form, I return to the DC side of the fence to talk a conflict that’s been brewing for months.  I mean, of course, the conflict between fans of the DCEU and fans of Supergirl over whose Superman is superior. Fans of Tyler Hoechlin‘s portrayal claim that Hoechlin’s Superman is ‘the right’ one.  Meanwhile, Henry Cavill fans claim that Hoechlin just does a Reeve impression instead of bringing anything new to the table….

REVIEW: Trinity #2 – An Issue Worthy of Comics’ Holy Trinity

REVIEW: Trinity #2 –  An Issue Worthy of Comics’ Holy Trinity

After a first issue I criticized for lacking in incident and narrative drive, Trinity #2 shows far better the kind of book we can expect from writer/artist Francis Manapul, and it’s one worthy of the adventures of arguably the three biggest icons in all of super-hero comics. Trinity #2 is a superb issue, dialling up the mystery, intrigue and jeopardy while continuing to nail the disparate voices and personalities of the three main characters. The…

#TBT @ THE MOVIES – Superman IV: Quest for Peace

#TBT @ THE MOVIES – Superman IV: Quest for Peace

I tried really, really hard to like the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, I promise I did.  And I see why people do like him, and what he means for people.  Even with Superman IV: Quest For Peace, I tried to give the movie the benefit of the doubt.  Despite pretty much everyone involved in the movie regretting it, apparently, according to the Superman history book I’m reading. But man, I just can’t get on board with a…
