A satisfactory conclusion to an event that didn’t get off to a good start.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Batman/Superman Vol. 1: Cross World by Greg Pak – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Batman-Superman-Vol-01

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews the first Volume in the newly launched Batman/Superman title, featuring both characters from the New 52 and their first encounters with their Earth 2 counterparts. This book is published by DC Comics.

“A flawed book that can be cautiously recommended if you’re a fan of Jae Lee’s artwork – if not, this may be one to stay clear of – because Pak’s writing is not enough to salvage this book, which is a shame given the potential from the subject matter.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Getting his hands on another DC Comics trade paperback, Bellarius gives his thoughts on the revamped Constantine series by Jeff Lemire and Ray Fawkes.

“An entertainingly dark tale which fully returns John to the world of superheroics. It’s just a shame what we lost in order to get it.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Aquaman and The Others #1 – Friday Flash Review

Aquaman and the Others 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of a new series that focuses on the Geoff Johns-created superhero team The Others.

“I remain unimpressed. But at least this was a better issue than Jurgens’ work on Superman for New 52.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

It’s good to see Aquaman get a second ongoing series but Jurgens unfortunately can only deliver an average debut.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
