Perhaps not the most well-known hero in the DC Comics back catalogue, Mister Miracle (AKA Scott Free) is having a tough time of things at the moment.
Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Eisner Award-winning ‘Mister Miracle’ is a realistic look at mental illness and emptiness, all set against the backdrop of Jack Kirby’s wacky Forth World.

‘Batman: Digital Justice’ is like a time capsule from the early 1990s. From it’s weird “ground-breaking” 3D art to it’s cautionary message about technology, it’s aged like milk. But surely there’s something of merit here?

DCeased is more than just a good title. It’s a story that offers us a new and often horrifying glimpse into the DC Universe, by ravaging the world with a deadly techno-virus. Imagine a zombie, but with powers of the Flash or Superman and you’re on the right lines.

Like practically every 90’s kid, we got scooped up in the hype train that was Harry Potter. From the books to the films, that world was amazing. We all saw each film at the cinema over the years and suddenly it was over. While it was still an interesting world, the magic of it fizzled a little bit. So we thought it was time for a reappraisal.

Final Crisis is deeply flawed, yet captivating. It’s head-scratching at times, and at others it’s seemingly far too straightforward. Characters will make grand speeches about the nature of good and evil, followed by a dumb joke. It’s Grant Morrison’s take on the epic, crossover event.

We’ve seen countless times how The United States of America deals with threats, but this comic asks us to consider the question; what if that threat was a little closer to home? Would you feel the same?
It’s a knockout story that’s well-worth reading, now more than ever.
