Resident Alien, Omnibus Volume 1 by Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse (graphic novel review).

Despite the introduction to ‘Resident Alien Omnibus Volume 1’, saying that not all aliens visiting the Earth are invaders, I think this book series creators, writer Peter Hogan and artist Steve Parkhouse, forget the likes of the films ‘E.T. – The Extra- Terrestrial’ and ‘Starman’ who just want to get their people to rescue them.

Power Girl: Power Trip by Geoff Johns, Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner and Paul Mounts (graphic novel review).

It took a while to find a copy of ‘Power Girl: Power Trip’ at a decent low price. Starting this graphic novel, it became obvious that this is the start of one of her DC Universe realities, although on Earth-1 than Earth-2 where she originally started. She is also confused, first thinking she’s Superman’s cousin […]

Ed and Jim settle in for a professional review of Torpedo 1936, the Spanish comics series written by Enrique Sánchez Abulí and illustrated by Jordi Bernet, which opened up its pages on the adventures of Luca Torelli, a cold and rather nasty hitman anti-hero, and his sidekick Rascal, set in the rip-roaring Tommy Gun-toting gangster […]

Harley Quinn Vol. 6: Black, White And Red All Over by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, John Timms and Chad Hardin (graphic novel review).

Harley Quinn Vol. 6: Black, White And Red All Over by Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, John Timms and Chad Hardin (graphic novel review).

In case anyone thinks I’m losing track, ‘Harley Quinn Vol. 6: Black, White And Red All Over’ reprints Harley Quinn # 26-30 from 2016. Now here’s an oddity, there’s only one real side-plot and it looks like it’ll finish in the next volume. I don’t think that was intentional, only by the limit of issues […]

Harley Quinn Vol. 4: Surprise, Surprise by Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, John Timms and Alex Sinclair (graphic novel review).

No, you’re not mistaken. I’ve read volume 5 before volume 4 of the ‘DC Universe Rebirth’ of Harley Quinn. I didn’t realise it until I found it in my pile of books. Despite my comment that this series of graphic novels is like following a super-hero soap opera, I hadn’t realised I missed a book. […]
