English

review 1: I wasn't too excited for yet another origin story, but this one starts off wonderfully. The artwork is top-notch, and Morrison wisely relegates most of the Krypton and Smallville stuff to a few brief flashbacks. The main focus is on Kal El's first year is Metropolis. As journa...

review 1: For the love of Buddha, LSD, orgasms and microchips, read The Invisibles now! The fate of our ultradimensional hypertime continuum depends on it!Seriously, read this mind copulater at once. The omnibus is one hefty, unwieldy SOB, but it's worth it, especially to aspiring comics c...

review 1: A boy with diabetes trying to survive a serious hypoglycaemic attack has visions of a fantasy world where his toys are alive and in great danger. This was pretty good, but I found it hard going. I love Dave Stewart's colouring on the Hellboy books, but coupled with Sean Murphy's ...

review 1: It took a while for it to get into it, but after the first initial confusion it was an enjoyable ride.I have never read the previous Batman Inc run by Morrison, which I now realise it might help me understand everything more. I had to to a couple of instances of flicking back pag...

review 1: Grant Morrison provides a fascinating tour throughout his life in comics. It's as much autobiography as it is a history of comics, and he expounds on some of his theories regarding the genre of superhero comics. But it's all great reading, as Morrison's writing style draws you in...

review 1: Morrison's take on the X-Men is pretty solid. After playing around with the nanosentinels early on, he goes into more traditional territory and I think it works a lot better. Lots of mutants with the levels of outlandishness you'd expect from Morrison; very nice angsty teens; som...

review 1: Morrison does everything right with Superman that Snyder and Goyer completely forgot to do. He nails the right beats with Pa Kent, he doesn't just do another origin story (though it is in there). He stays true to the true golden age roots of the character as social justice anti...

review 1: Grant Morrison's All-Star Superman, was one the best Superman stories Iv read. So he can write supes. This was a bit of a let down tho. But it's not for me. It's for new readers. And I would hand this to someone as a jumping on point, rather then Superman Chronicles vol1 or Super...

review 1: This was a great new version of the Superman story. All of the familiar characters were there but their back stories had been tweaked, some of them being very different. The central plot worked well and Superman's story worked well through flashbacks. The only part I was a lit...

review 1: This series. What can you say about it? Impossibly difficult at times? Yes. Amazingly subversive for the time? Yup. An amazing experiment that actually finished the way the writer intended? Most definitely.This series I think sums up some of the best things about the Vertigo impr...

review 1: I'm conflicted. On the one hand, the dialogue is absolutely amazing. Every word that proceedeth from the mouth of Emma is pure gold, I love Hank, I even liked Jean! But on the other hand, everything to do with Cassandra Nova is terrible and weird. Like, what-have-you-been-smoking...

review 1: If you've read my review of Vol. 2, well, this is even more all over the place; literally and figuratively.The reveal is that Mr. Mxyzptlk is in human form, in a coma, married to Clark Kent's landlady (who revealed herself in Vol. 2) and they're trying to fight off Vyndktvk (Vind...

review 1: This one came so close to a five star review! I had never even heard of Animal Man until I was browsing graphic novels/comics at our local library. Seeing an omnibus, or complete collection, of any comic is always a cause for excitement as I will supposedly get the full story. An...

review 1: There are stories about superheroes, and then there is Grant Morrison's run on Animal Man. He had Buddy Baker put his thang down, flip it, and reverse it. I read the monthly issues as a kid and had my mind blown open, and that didn't change when I read this as an adult. It's almo...

review 1: I get it. Impossible premise. Can't expect much. Okay.Bu dinosaurs who are so advanced they create elaborate headresses for themselves (with bones, parts of other dinosaurs apparently, feathers, and some kind of rope material--BTW how the heck does Tyrannosaurus rex tie ANYTHI...

review 1: I read enough of this to get an idea of what was going on and then just flipped through it and drooled over the art. The concept is amazing and would make such an incredible movie or series, especially if the art was done by the same artist.Unfortunately reading it is a little bo...
