DC Comics kicks off their, summer event with this One-Shot issue. Focusing on the villains and leading into the 'Year of the Villain', this book follows in the footsteps of last summer's DC Nation #0. Personally I like that DC has been putting these books out. You can't beat the price point($0.25), and they've got … Continue reading Year of the Villain #1
The latest issue of Justice League Dark came out last week, continuing The Lords of Order story line. It's a well done book all around, and since the relaunch of all the Justice League titles, it's the only one that catches my eye. Why? It's different. Issue #5 and Issue #6 were a lot of … Continue reading Justice League Dark #10

The Shadow Pact Part One This book is the first issue in the second arc of Justice League Dark. The magic focused Justice League team has an unorthodox membership, which also makes for some great character interaction. I honestly wish I'd grabbed an issue of this series earlier! The Cover Nicola Scott and Romulo Fajardo … Continue reading Justice League Dark #5
DC has released a one shot issue to introduce their upcoming story lines and the re-vamping of the justice league this summer. It contains three short stories for the great low price of $0.25. Seriously, a quarter. You can't get much better value for a book than that, and with the overall quality, they could … Continue reading DC Nation #0
I took in Justice League tonight. After some of the reviews and criticisms of the film, I was expecting it to be pretty terrible, but still vowed to approach it with an open mind. There are several things I liked in it, and a few I didn't. It was really a mixed bag of a … Continue reading Justice League in Review
The Cover This cover, by Bryan Hitch and Alex Sinclair has a lot of what I like about the current Justice League: Lots of vibrant colour, action, and the suggestion of conflict within! I like the tease that the League will be fighting their future children, in fact that tease is exactly why I picked … Continue reading Justice League Kids? A Look at What May Be.

Not sure why, but the character never really resonated with me or seemed interesting. … Continue reading A First Foray into Justice: My first ever Justice League comic, #14.
