Spanner’s Galaxy #1

Spanner’s Galaxy #1

Polaris Spanner recalls his past, from becoming a Kaborian squire to discovering he’s an intergalactic fugitive. Nicola Cuti and Tom Mandrake launch a space saga short on originality and lacking pizzazz. [More]

The Omega Men #1

The Omega Men #1

The Omega Men lead a rebel takeover of the planet Slagg, then move on to Broot’s home world, Changralyn. This early direct-only outing from the team of Roger Slifer, Keith Giffen and Mike DeCarlo seems more interested in delivering gore than character building. [More]

Atari Force #2

Atari Force #2

The future members of the next-generation Atari Force continue their separate adventures, including a battle between Dart and a warbeast. This well-written series from Gerry Conway starts coming into focus, while the art, from underrated star José Luis García-López, is excellent right out of the gate. [More]

Superman #276

Superman #276

Superman finds himself going toe to toe with Captain Thunder, a Captain Marvel analogue turned inexplicably evil. This outing from Elliot S. Maggin, Curt Swan and Bob Oksner never quite escapes its own oddness. [More]

Marvel and DC Present Featuring the Uncanny X-Men and the New Teen Titans #1

When Darkseid resurrects Dark Phoenix, the X-Men and Teen Titans must join forces in an effort to save the universe. The best of the Big Two’s Bronze Age crossovers, from the A-list creative team of Chris Claremont, Walter Simonson and Terry Austin. [More]

Superman #349

Superman #349

Returning from an interstellar mission, Superman finds himself trapped on an Earth where everyone has changed sexes. This lightweight relic from Martin Pasko and Curt Swan isn’t bad, but it’s not very entertaining, either. [More]

The Phantom Stranger #33

The Phantom Stranger #33

Intent on tracking down his own killer, Deadman learns a lesson about the cost of vengeance from the Phantom Stranger. A fairly weak story from Arnold Drake gets a nice boost from an early effort by artist Mike Grell. [More]

World’s Finest Comics #243

World’s Finest Comics #243

When the relocation of ancient statues puts the Immortals of Cy-Tor at risk, the aliens are forced into action against Batman, Robin and Superman. This snoozy story from Bob Haney has its moments, but bland art from Curt Swan and Al Milgrom doesn’t help this dated affair. [More]

Detective Comics #512

Detective Comics #512

B-list villain Dr. Death holds Gotham – including Batman and Robin – hostage with a deadly allergen. A surprisingly weak 45th-anniversary outing for DC’s flagship Detective Comics. Creative talent includes Gerry Conway, Gene Colan, Klaus Janson and others. [More]

The Legion of Super-Heroes #304

The Legion of Super-Heroes #304

With the team down to just 21 members, the Legion considers the current crop of Legion Academy cadets. It’s another character-driven, transitional issue – the kind of comic Paul Levitz and Keith Giffen do very well. [More]
