Seven Soldiers is a comic book event like no other, in which a bunch of reluctant c-list heroes all come together to stop an extraterrestrial crisis.
Except they never meet. In fact, they don’t even know the others exist or that they’re part of a superhero team. It’s Morrison at his most…Morrisonian.

In this six-issue story, things catch up with John Constantine. And it’s not demons, monsters, or any of the usual madness. It’s something far more human. And inescapable.

‘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.

Batman is dead! Or so everybody thinks. He’s actually been sent back in time through a complicated series of events involving Darkseid, omega beams, radion bullets – but as far as anyone in Gotham knows, he’s dead. After a brief battle for the cowl, Dick Grayson is the new Batman. And Damian Wayne is the new Robin. It’s up to this oddball pair to restore order to Gotham. And with it being Grant Morrison, things are going to get weird.

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.

Comics are confusing. I’d argue that nothing is quite as confusing as the world of DC comics, particularly the really out-there cosmic stuff. And Grant Morrison is famously bonkers. So the two of them together, in the wake of one of DC’s typically bloated and ridiculous crossover events (penned by the chaos magician himself) in a Batman-meets-Cloud Atlas time-hopping adventure – how confusing could it be?

Everyone has an opinion on ‘Joker’ – especially those who haven’t seen it. But it’s not the dangerous incel fantasy that some have hailed it as – though it will surely still find an audience with that crowd.
‘Joker’ is gorgeous in it’s own disgusting sort of way. And, going into it, if you consider it as an alternate universe spinoff, or Elseworlds retelling, you’ll have a great time – even if you’ll need a shower afterwards.

A quick review of one of the stranger characters in the Batman mythos; Azrael. After discovering him in the ‘Arkham’ games, I couldn’t believe he wasn’t more popular. I decided to buy his origin story and discover how he was introduced.
