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]

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]

Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane #112

Superman’s Girlfriend Lois Lane #112

Lois Lane finds herself with a rival for Superman’s affection: a sentient, alien tree with erotic dreams of world domination. Yes, you read that right. Cary Bates, Werner Roth and Vince Colletta’s kitschy concoction makes for a fun lead story. [More]

Targitt #1

Targitt #1

When FBI agent John Targitt’s wife and daughter are blown up in a mob hit, the agent seeks bloody revenge. A below-average script from Ric Meyers gets strong storytelling support from veteran artist Howard Nostrand. [More]

DC Special Series #21

DC Special Series #21

A certain bright star in the sky helps several DC universe characters successfully navigate Christmas Eve adventures. This collection of short tales is pretty solid throughout, with a young Frank Miller’s first-ever outing on Batman being the best present in the pile. [More]

Marvel Feature #1

Marvel Feature #1

Red Sonja investigates an ancient temple within the Darkwood and soon finds herself battling an “unhuman horde.” The lead feature by Roy Thomas and Dick Giordano is good, but the reprint backup – featuring art by Esteban Maroto, Neal Adams and Ernie Chan – is the real treat. [More]

Young Love #123

Young Love #123

A Vietnam veteran returns home with a secret — drug addiction! Will his woman stand by her man? The lead story is an enjoyable enough relic of its times, but it’s the Alex-Toth-drawn backup feature that makes this issue a winner. [More]

Wonder Woman #198

Wonder Woman #198

Princess Diana inspires some of history’s greatest heroes to help the Amazons repel Ares’ invasion of Paradise Island. This issue reprints a surprisingly epic adventure from Wonder Woman #183-184, crafted by writer/artist Mike Sekowsky. [More]

Phoenix #2

Phoenix #2 (Atlas)

After learning the alien threat still lives, Phoenix races to New York to stop the annihilation of the city. Heavy with Biblical allusions, this series, by artist Sal Almendola and new writer Gabriel Levy, still has potential. [More]
