Justice League United #0 – Friday Flash Review

Justice League United 00

Trinity War – A DC Comics Event Review [Shadowhawk/Bane of Kings]

Trinity War 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings take a look at the six-issue crossover event that leads into the current ongoing Forever Evil event.

“Start to finish, this was one hell of a ride, and as the first mega-event in comics that I’ve been able to follow issue by issue, this definitely was something else. Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire started off great, and they ended great, with ample support from all the artists involved like Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Mikel Janin and the others who were really on top-form here.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Worth buying all the issues for rather than just reading the ones from the comics you follow. Top notch stuff.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 01.06.2013

Earth 2 Annual 2013

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the first comics round-up for June.

Demon Reborn is a below-par Witchblade title from Dynamite that just fails to ever get going. Bill Willingham’s Fairest, a Fables spin-off, has a bit of a rough start but gets better with each issue. Geoff Johns’ Justice League of America continues to impress but still has a fair few flaws that prevent it from becoming a top title. And Brian Wood’s ongoing Star Wars is just superb with excellent characterisation and dialogue.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Batman: Earth 2 Annual #1 provides a misleading first outing for the new caped crusader while Nightwing impresses. Thanos Rising is comparable to Star Wars, and, Wolverine and the X-Men seems set to be one of the weirdest Marvel comics currently ongoing. ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Comics Round-up 01.03.2013

JLA 01

Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings bring to you the first comics round-up for March.

“With DC comics entering another new crossover event, the continued awesomeness of  Earth 2, a truly fantastic Star Wars graphic novel, and a great look at an old, classic, pulp character, recent comics reading has been great. ” ~Shadowhawk

“Another month of some great comics from Marvel and DC.” ~Bane of Kings
