July 25, 2013 2:12 pm I reckon a lot of the impact of the art is down to June Chung. Atmospheric to say the least. This is the sort of title I've been waiting for DC to put out.
June 25, 2013 2:25 pm I got all the BW in floppies & would say that for story I'd read Minutemen/Silk Spectre. For gorgeous art, Jae Lee's Ozymandias (I'll be picking up the new Batman/Superman purely for Lee's art). Recommend staying away from Rorschach completely (unless you like books where the main character just gets ridiculously beaten up all the time - but never killed by thugs) and the tiresome pirates story. I didn't know Jae Lee's work until this: are there any other things he's done that are work checking out?
June 23, 2013 8:55 am I just took a look at my order and I'm averaging 43 comics a month. That's scary. I do read them and absolutely enjoy reading them. For me, the problem is that the various Marvel double shippings have begun to build up the list. I couldn't do without my weekly dash to my comic shop after work on a Wednesday. Being 44, with a family that includes a one-year old, comics are one of the few "me" activities I have. It's video games that have been cut (sadly). It's not help cutting my list... it's actually stopping myself from buying even more that I can do with. Blimey, that sounds like addiction.

June 14, 2013 7:31 pm Ouch. Harsh review. It's not the Superman movie I want, but it's enjoyable in its own right. It's two movies: the series of Gap advert flashbacks in the first half and the slug-fest of the second. I don't think that it's any worse than Batman Begins, though. My two issues were: the unnecessary nonsense about the Codex (Zod just hunt down Kal-El for racial purity reasons) plus the awfully miscast Amy Adams as Lois. Certainly more New-52 than "classic" Superman. Certainly a million times better than Green Lantern. It may also be like an album that you listen to repeatedly before it grows on you. Or not...
April 15, 2013 1:54 pm Jason Stratham. (It may tax his skills in delivering lines, though)
April 3, 2013 2:16 pm Have to agree with you, too. There's a sense that the story has stalled. More actually happened in the Superior Spider-man comic last week than has happened in AU. It's already become as tedious as AvX.
February 22, 2013 12:18 pm That last page was bleak. Having been in Northern pubs like that I know why Constantine looks so shocked. The cloth cap is a perfect detail.
February 5, 2013 1:54 pm I thought Y was really (ok... I know what that sounds like) being made now as one movie by Dan Trachtenberg. I have a lot of reservations about it transfering to just one movie too. HBO series would work. What I really want to see is a Saga movie. Just imagine it...
January 31, 2013 3:55 pm Hypernaturals is such a great title. It's exactly what I'm not getting from LoSH (and I'll wait and see how GotG turns out). There's some pretty interesting SF ideas mixed up in a team superhero book. The bad guy is classic.
