Batman Versus Predator by Dave Gibbons, Andy and Adam Kubert – Comic Review [Bellarius]

Batman_vs_Predator

Examining the “versus” craze of the 90s, Bellarius gives his thoughts on Batman Versus Predator.

“One of the best examples of how to have Batman work with science fiction elements to date. No, really.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol. 2 by Tom Taylor – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

Injustice-Gods-Among-Us-Vol.02

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, reviews the second Volume of Injustice: Gods Among Us, a tie-in to the fighting game of the same name – written by Tom Taylor with artwork from Mike S. Miller, Tom Derenick and Jeremy Raapack. Published by DC Comics, this book can be read without knowledge of the events of the video game – however reading Volume 1 first is a definite requirement.

“Tom Taylor steps up and knocks the ball out of the park with the second volume of Injustice: Gods Among Us – improving over the first and making it a compelling, unpredictable read where anything can happen and not even your favourite superheroes are safe.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Forever Evil #7 – Double Review [Bane of Kings/Shadowhawk]

Forever Evil 07

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk check out the final issue of DC’s biggest event series for the New 52.

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

“A disappointing and needlessly delayed conclusion to a disappointing event.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Superman: Doomed #1 – Friday Flash Review

Superman-Doomed-01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the first issue of Superman: Doomed as Superman takes on Doomsday in a reimagining of sorts of the classic, epic story Death of Superman.

“Rushed story, rushed art, rushed ending. This was, quite frankly, a mess.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

If you want to see a fight between Superman and Doomsday, then you’ve come to the right place.” ~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
