As you may know, I love all things Superman! Whether it’s comic books, TV series, films, products, technology, you name it – I’ll review it.
All reviews will have NO SPOILERS! They will also contain my personal experiences and opinions on the item/issue/episode, whether that be good or bad.
I hope you enjoy and there are LOTS more to come!
While it seems a little too late to celebrate Superman’s return home from Warworld considering that he has been back for a whole month – it’s never a bad time to assemble a great team of comic creators to tell stories celebrating Superman and the cast of Metropolis. That’s exactly what the Superman: Kal-El Returns Special #1 delivers on.
Action Comics #1049 gives us nothing but prime Superman action, as loose ends from Warworld refuse to be tied and his greatest villains from Earth begin to come out of the cracks. With the next issue being a special anniversary one, we’ll be seeing something colossal.
DC Mech #5 continues to deliver a fast paced, mech genre anime inspired comic using the building blocks of the DCU in fascinating ways that still maintains the essence of the characters we know and love. This series may see it’s last issue next month but hopefully that won’t be the last time we get treated to this unique world within DC’s multiverse.
Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #9 takes the Boy Thunder into the danger zone with Batman’s worst enemy and though the whole grand scheme has yet to be revealed, the action and characters will keep the reader entertained.
We’re half way through the miniseries with Titans United: Bloodpact #3 and the pacing and intrigue feels spot on as we head into the last half of the story. Amongst some of the current story arcs taking place throughout DC Comics, this series continues to be highly entertaining without the weight of continuity correctness.
Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths #6 is the pivotal action issue with the decisive battle taking place and it has some phenomenal Superman content. The main theme of legacy heroes deviates here as we see the appearances and return of several classical heroes.
A heart felt issue about fathers and sons, Superman: Son of Kal-El #17 may be the penultimate issue of the series but Tom Taylor continues to set up stories that ensure Jon Kent’s career as Superman is far from over.
The Death Of Superman: 30th Anniversary Special #1 is the perfect expansion to an iconic storyline. At first I was skeptical about having new stories added to it, but I have to say it is expertly done and I loved every moment of it. I genuinely read the first story so fast, I couldn’t turn the pages quick enough.
Battle Of The Super Sons is DC’s latest animated film and the first of their releases to be done with 3D animation. Though I was late to the party getting to see it, I’ve now watched it numerous times!
Dark Knights of Steel #8 feels like the final piece needed to set this world aflame with war despite the countless efforts to prevent it. Tom Taylor reminds us, yet again, no one is “safe” in this series and it’ll be exciting to see how the story plays out from here.
