DC Rebirth – Sept 21st: Sad Cyborg, GL makes Cookies, Monsters in Gotham and guess who’s coming to dinner?

Posted by: |

DC Rebirth continues its onslaught of the comic book industry: the August 2016 numbers had DC taking nine out of the top 10 best selling comics. It’s great news for DC Fans, though I’m very interested to see how Marvel responds.

There is a lot going on in the DC Universe this week as Gotham has a monster of a problem, Cyborg is doing a diagnostic on his soul, and Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz have a baking challenge. Oh and the Trinity get together for some dinner.

Review: The Raven and the Reindeer

I read The Raven and the Reindeer by T. Kingfisher (known as Ursula Vernon to her friends, and ursulav to those of us who follow her on deviantart) back in February and I loved it to pieces, but I didn’t write the review right away. Fast forward six months and I thought if I want to do a good review, I ought to read it again.

No kidding, it’s even better the second time around. And the first time it was amazing.

Review: Doctor Strange – Strange Origin

Review: Doctor Strange – Strange Origin

Are you ready for the Doctor Strange movie in November? Are you? ‘CAUSE I SURE AM. 

While we wait, I decided to check out the Doctor Strange: Strange Origin graphic novel that Marvel released this month. Although when you get right down to it, 99% of this is a re-release since it’s a repackaging of Greg Pak and Emma Rios’s Doctor Strange: Season One graphic novel, with the first issue of the latest ongoing Doctor Strange comic tacked on to the end. 

The 2012 Season One storyline follows most of the usual highlights about Doctor Strange’s origin, but adds a new dimension to his relationship with the character of Wong. Traditionally portrayed as Strange’s loyal servant, Wong appears in this story as a rival student of the Ancient One, and he’s not happy about Stephen Strange being admitted as a student as well. He also doesn’t trust Strange when the two of them are roped into a quest for three powerful relics that could give their owner the power of the mystical Vishanti.

DC Rebirth – Sept 14th: Godspeed’s Identity, Naked Guy Gardner and Not so Superman

DC Rebirth – Sept 14th: Godspeed’s Identity, Naked Guy Gardner and Not so Superman

This week’s books continue to surprise; it feels like the Green Lantern series is back, though under a different name. The book that actually takes place in space is called Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps. Then there are books that I normally would’ve never picked up and find myself more than enjoying.

This week we are faced with the aftermath of Godspeed’s attack on Star Labs, Sinestro continuing his whole “feed the Fear Machine” plan, and to top it off who the heck is this Clark Kent? (The non super powered version.) There’s plenty more where that came from, plus my top picks.
