Story: Martin Comity, trumpet player, jazz musician. Booze hound. Addict. Martin looks for the next thing to keep his mind occupied. Drink, women, drugs…and then a drug called New Blue comes along. And let’s just say this drug ain’t like anything Martin … Continue reading
Read the original piece (okay, I wrote this in 2003) HERE at Green Man Review! Let’s face it; if you spent your life stealing stuff to make a living, wouldn’t it be tempting to chuck your “career” for a guaranteed … Continue reading

Nutshell: A strange, compelling hybrid of Batman Detective Comics and “New 52” Batman, there’s plenty of tie-ins to the Bruce/Bat canon. So much so that though it can be read as a stand-alone, it’s better if you know who’s who … Continue reading
Nutshell: Just like Harley’s poor brain, New Suicide Squad: Pure Insanity is muddled and violent. But unlike Harley, it’s not necessarily entertaining. It has its moments, but as DC is already rebooting the lineup, I’m guessing they felt the same … Continue reading
