Superman 032

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk tackle the first issue of the newest creative team on DC’s troubled top-tier comic, Superman.

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

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

Justice League 3000 #3 – Friday Flash Review

Justice League 3000 03

Bane of Kings and Shadowhawk take a look at the newest issue of the latest Justice League book from DC Comics.

Justice League 3000 isn’t quite finding its groove yet after a promising start but it still continues to be fun and is far from the worst book on DC’s shelves right now.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“Loved that we got more insight into how this world of the future works, but the primary characters aren’t quite working for me. The charm is in the setting and not so much in the characters.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

Superman Vol. 3: Fury At World’s End by Scott Lobdell – Graphic Novel Review [Bane of Kings]

SupermanVol3

Milo, aka “Bane of Kings”, turns his attention to the third Volume of the New 52 Superman series, entitled Fury at World’s End, penned by Scott Lobdell, featuring art by Kenneth Rocaforte this series is published by DC Comics, and collects the Superman sections of the “H’EL on Earth” crossover.

“What a disappointment. Whilst not being one of the worst graphic novels of the New 52 that I’ve read, Superman Vol. 3 is certainly down there, and despite some scenes of initial promise, Fury at World’s End is a wasted oppurtunity that suffers from Lobdell’s apparent need to make everything that he writes connect to another title as part of a crossover event.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

Justice League 3000 #1

“Extremely quirky and unexpected. I am cautious about this one.~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields
