Review: H’el on Earth

Supe_Family

Yet again, I got reeled into a cross over event, this time being H’el On Earth involving Superboy, Supergirl, and Superman comics.  While Superman #13 leads up to this event, the real crossover begins with the 14 issues.  And for any wondering about order to read them: Superboy, Supergirl, Superman.  Really, Superboy peaked my interest in it, and I’ve been interested how Lobdell’s Superman would be.  Have to say so far I’m not disappointed, and that some spoilers may lie ahead.

Review: Teen Titans #2

So the first issue wasn’t bad, but still nothing great.  Granted, my opinion may be a bit bias as I’m upset still volume 3 history is erased for the Titans and maybe even ALL Teen Titan history, depending if all of DC can get on the same page for this relaunch.  Which, by the way, Lobdell apparently thinks there is previous Teen Titans history at least.

SPOILER WARNING!

Continuing on with another Retrospective with issues 20-26, and while last retrospective contained some of my favorite story arcs, this one has one of my favorite moments.  Part of this ties in with Identity Crisis.

Retrospective: Teen Titans vol 3 (part 3)


I’m continuing my Retrospective for the Teen Titans with the Teens Titans/Legion of Superheroes crossover and issues 16-19 (collected in trade as The Future is Now).  Handling a lot with these issues, so I’ll try to keep it from being too long.  I do want to state though that these issues are some of my favorites of this Teen Titans group and Johns is joined by writer Mark Waid for the Legion cross over.

Retrospective: Teen Titans vol 3 (part 2)

 

Superboy #1 is rebooting Superboy from scratch.  That and answers from Scott Lobdell in a Comic Vine Q/A session also points that despite the new Universe having a Teen Titans, that the last incarnation of the team is having their history completely erased.  So with that in mind, I’d like to continue with my retrospective taking a look at issues TT 1/2, and 8-15  (also collected currently in trade form Family Lost and Beast Boys & Girls).

Retrospective: Teen Titans vol 3 (part 1)

I’m a fan of the Teen Titans, especially the latest incarnation that went from 2003-2011 and as this relaunch makes it seem their entire history may be erased, I wanted to give them a farewell starting with issues 1-7 (also collected in trade form as “A Kid’s Game” or the soon to be released Teen Titans Omnibus 1).  Like usual, beware of spoilers.
