DC Noir 0

Ever wonder what would happen if Batman, the Spirit, and Doc Savage teamed up to stop a cabal of villains, well the First Wave answers your question.

Live Long And Prosper 0

Do you like movie tie-in graphic novels? If you do you should definitely read Star Trek: Countdown. I personally have mixed feelings about movie tie-in graphic novels and media tie-in graphic novels in general video game television graphic novels. There are great tie-in graphic novels like Batman Arkham Unhinged and Star Wars: Darth Vader, then there are duds like Ghostbusters: Legion and Frank Miller's Robocop. Star Trek: Countdown I can safely is not remotely a dud. Star Trek: Countdown tells ...

Time Travel can be dangerous 0

What would happen if the Flash's mother never died? If Batman's parents never died, but instead it was Batman who died in that fateful night? If Superman's ship crash-landed in Metropolis not Smallville? Well, Flashpoint answers those questions in a unique way and gives readers new and interesting takes on iconic characters. Flashpoint is by far the best Flash story I've read and that's thanks in large part to its a compelling story, the cast of character, and artwork.StoryIn Flashpoint the Flas...

The Ultimates and the Justice League meat face to face 0

Many superhero fans and comic readers what would happen if the Avengers met the Justice League? Well, Ultimate Power answers that question perfectly by giving you a story where Marvel's deconstruction of the Justice League the Squadron Supreme meats the Ultimates, the Ultimate versions of the Avengers, alongside the X-Men and the Fantastic Four. Ultimate Power is a massive crossover event that took the combined work of J. Michael Straczynski, Jeph Loeb, and Brian Michael Bendis to create. Ultima...

Ultimate Batman 0

With the success of Superman Earth One, it was inevitable that Batman would also get the Earth One treatment too. Batman Earth One does the Dark Knight justice in this original telling of Batman's origin story. As Batman tries to uncover why his parents were murdered, he discovers a conspiracy to kill Thomas Wayne that involves the Penguin. Geoff Johns and Gary Frank deliver a great and impressive retelling of Batman's origin story. Batman Earth One is a great read from its compelling story, cha...

Ultimate Superman II 0

Meanwhile, Superman faces off against the Parasite, a foe who has the ability to drain Superman of his powers. Superman Earth One 2 is the perfect sequel to Superman Earth One with its great story, well-wr...

Ultimate Superman 0

Superman tries to live a normal life among average humans, but he figures out it's harder than it appears given his powers. Then an alien invasion hits earth causing Clark Kent to spring into action as Superman and finds his purpose. That basically sums up J. Michael Straczynski and Shane Davis' Superman Earth One, which kicked off DC's Earth-One runs. Earth-One is basically DC's answer to Marvel's Ultimate Universe, which is placing iconic heroes in a world that more closely resembles our world...
