Project 500: Crisis of Infinite Reviewers 0

Welcome ComicVine to the second installment of Project 500. Project 500 came as an idea from reviewer Silkcuts as a Jam session style review where a few users come together to write a series of reviews. The first review for Crisis on Infinite Earths #1 was a jam session, while the reviews for the other issues of Crisis on Infinite Earths will be handed off baton-style from reviewer to reviewer.First off, thanks to Silkcuts for starting off this project!

Showcase presents: Manhunter 2070 0

In the 1960s and 1970s, instead of launching new titles, DC Comics would take a concept and try it out in a comic series it called Showcase. They would give a series 1-3 issues, and if fan response was positive, it would spin it off into its own series. Some of the features in Showcase ( Flash, Green Lantern, Atom, the Metal Men) spun off and became big successes, while others never got their own series.  This is the debut of one of those “failures”: ...

Reviewing the four issue Power Girl miniseries 0

I really want to like Power Girl. I really do. She has such potential. She's a powerful woman, with an iconic look, and not some knockoff of another super-hero.

Reviewing the 12 issue run of Black Condor 0

After re-reading the 12 issue run of Black Condor, I'm pretty sad. This was a series that had some really good potential, but when downhill pretty fast.  At the start, the premise seems interesting: here's this Native American, Ryan Kendall, who has been given the powers of flight, telepathy, and enhanced senses by his evil uncle, the head of a secret society. But instead of playing hero, all Kendall wants to do is hang out in the pine barrens of New Jersey protecting the wildlife with his buddy...

An interesting re-read... 0

I was surprised at how interesting a re-read this miniseries has been a couple decades later. There are a lot of firsts here in the very first retcon of J'onn J'onzz' origin. First off, we get a first name for Dr. Erdel (Saul), and a surprise that he is still alive. I think a lot of writers between here and Brightest Day still refer to Erdel as dead; especially in Martian Manhunter's ongoing 1998 series. It had even slipped my mind that he was still alive. Second,  we're first introduced t...
