The Wicked + The Divine, Vol. 7 : Mothering Invention - Review

The Wicked + The Divine is at times an exercise in madness. Not the bad kind, and not necessarily the good kind. Just madness.

Heroes in Crisis #7 - Review

Entering into the final act of Heroes in Crisis, we are no closer to knowing who committed the murders at Sanctuary than we were issues ago. The mystery thickens a bit when we learn that Wally West is involved in something with Poison Ivy. We are still left not knowing all the victims of Sanctuary and whether Wally West is actually alive or dead. With most of DC's "Crises," a speedster usually dies and the rupture of space/time is involved. What we do get out of this issue is a bit of coalescence. Harley Quinn and Booster Gold duke it out until they come to an understanding.
