Captain America #34: Lost and The Red Skrull
I was reading Captain America #34 today (yes I realize I am late to the party) when I noticed this possible typo in the synopsis page. In part it reads as follows: Bucky agrees to don the costume of Captain America and go after the Red Skrull. This sentence obviously should have said, “Red Skull”. […]

Supergirl #24 Ghosts of Krypton Part 2: Star Child… The Final Straw!
After two years of waiting for a decent story line, Supergirl has failed me for the final time. Two years ago I started reading Supergirl.

Supergirl #19 Review (the Greatly Anticipated end of Joe Kelly’s Run)
Joe Kelly (writer) finally ended his amazingly horrible run of Supergirl… and what a way to go out! Thanks for giving me a really terrible issue to trash, Kelly. This thing was so bad I don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll start with the cover even though this doesn’t fall under the […]

What the?! All Star Batman and Robin is Still Around?
