Superman

Superman #1

Proudly proclaimed by “DC Comics” as “a bold new chapter for the greatest superhero of all time”, yet disconcertingly only the fifth best-selling comic book in July 2018 according to “Diamond Comic Distributors”, Issue One of “Superman” must have disappointed many of its 133,703 fans with its tantalisingly fleeting glimpses of Clark Kent’s alter-ego battling prehistoric monsters and giant astronau...[Read More]

Man Of Steel #6

Whilst Brian Michael Bendis may well have truly believed that his narrative for this mini-series’ “slow-burn mystery of what happened to Lois and Jon” was “very enticing… very exciting”, it is arguably problematic to envisage the majority of the weekly’s audience feeling the same way considering just how many questions the five-time Eisner Award-winner’s script for Issue Six of “Man Of Steel” disc...[Read More]

Man Of Steel #5

Considering that this penultimate instalment to the American author’s “Man Of Steel” mini-series both shows Superman to be almost nonchalantly bested by his new nemesis and then disconcertingly left alive on the Moon despite the “religious zealot” making it abundantly clear that he wants to eradicate all Kryptonians, it is difficult to imagine that many within this twenty-three page periodical’s 6...[Read More]

DO SOMETHING

Man Of Steel #4

It’s arguably hard not to feel that Brian Michael Bendis placed an awful lot of faith in this title’s 63,565 readers, in so far as believing they’d actually go and seek out all the additional information relating to Rogol Zaar’s background which “DC Comics” was contemporaneously printing, simply to help them fill in the gaps which his penmanship creates throughout this mini-serie...[Read More]

Man Of Steel #3

When the highlight of a “Superman” comic is arguably a nine-panel long cameo by Gotham City’s Caped Crusader, then something has potentially gone badly wrong with its penmanship, and unfortunately for Issue Three of “Man Of Steel” that is precisely what happens with Brian Michael Bendis’ narrative when the titular character turns to “someone who might help shine a little light on the investigation...[Read More]

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #9

Despite this twenty-five page periodical being “initially advertised” as the culmination of Frank Miller’s nine-issue long “DC Comics” storyline, as well as “the conclusion to the Dark Knight series” itself, it is clear from this publication’s tantalising conclusion, which depicts both a rejuvenated Batman and symbolically less colourfully-attired Batwoman taking to Gotham City’s roof-tops in orde...[Read More]

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #8

Considering that this was the second biggest-selling comic book of March 2017, having shifted an impressive 107,892 units, it’s hard not to imagine many of this publication’s audience momentarily double-checking to see whether they’d inadvertently picked up a copy of the author’s “historically inspired 1998 comic book limited series” “300” rather than the penultimate instalment to Frank Miller’s f...[Read More]

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #7

Focusing upon the disconcertingly disorientated Kryptonians and Quar’s efforts to help his people “regain their strength” from the formidable assault they recently received at the hands of Gotham City’s irate population, many of this comic’s 119,114 readers probably felt that Frank Miller’s portrayal of Lara Kent erred somewhat during this particular twenty-two page periodical. For whilst Book Sev...[Read More]

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #6

Dousing the vast majority of their cast in the ghostly green-hued droplets of synthetic Kryptonite, Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello’s narrative for Book Six of “Dark Knight III: The Master Race” must surely have been as gritty and enthrallingly compelling as any of its impressive 133,642-strong readership could have wished for with its bloody depiction of pugilistic violence and barbaric savagery...[Read More]

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #5

The sixth best-selling title of June 2016, at least according to “Diamond Comic Distributors, Frank Miller and Brian Azzarello’s script for Book Five of “Dark Knight III: The Master Race” finally provided it’s audience of 139,919 readers with a glimmer of hope that the “dystopian near-future version of Gotham City” would not become irreparably ravaged by the recently restored inhabitan...[Read More]

Man of Steel

WHY THE WORLD NEEDS SUPERMAN INTRODUCTION Hello guys and girls, Kylo here. This is my first review for Dawn of Comics and I thought what better way to start my first review than with the superman movie I felt gave me HOPE. FOREWORD First off, I would like to say that I know a lot of fans of Superman are divided on Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, saying ‘it is not the Superman we remember&#...[Read More]

Action Comics #993

The Booster Shot story has finally started and in case you don’t remember or don’t know what it’s about, Booster Shot is set after the events of the Oz Effect. Wanting to find out if Oz was really telling the truth, Superman uses Barry Allen’s cosmic treadmill to travel back in time to the moment Krypton exploded, and Booster Gold showing up for the first time in 2 years (a...[Read More]
