London Falling (2013)
language
English
series
3.78 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: I'm not usually a big fan of the London-fetishizing urban fantasy sub-genre. Possibly it's just because I'm not a Londoner and find the capital irredeemably awful, but too much of it reads like a vaguely jingoistic retread of Neverwhere, a book I didn't much like in the first pla...
Batman and Robin: Dark Knight vs. White Knight (2012)
language
English

review 1: I have to admit I've been reading the Batman and Robin books so feverishly that I am starting to get the specific stories they tell all jumbled up. The problem also is that I've been getting the books from the library so I'm also reading the stories out of order. In my head I've ...
Demon Knights, Vol. 1: Seven Against the Dark (2012)
language
English
series
3.71 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I liked this more then I originally thought I was going to. I enjoyed reading more about Madame Xanadu, since I knew a little bit about her from reading Justice League Dark. I found the demons to be interesting, but there wasn't anyone that really stood out to me. I liked the Mer...
The Severed Streets (2014)

English
series

review 1: Good second book in this series, about four members of the London police department who have "the Sight," the ability to see under the facade of reality and glimpse some of the magical underpinnings, etc. Cornell does a really good job of showing them learning as they go, not alw...
Saucer Country Vol. 1: Run (2012)
language
English
3.53 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I lost track of this as a monthly, but it works better collected. A Hispanic divorced governor of New Mexico is planning to run for President, but she's got a big secret - she thinks she was abducted by aliens. The story does not play out as you would expect, and all of the cha...
Batman & Robin: Dark Knight Vs. White Knight (2013)
language
English
3.89 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Dark Knight Vs. White Knight is an interesting comic book as it has three stories in one book. The first story has Batman (Dick Grayson) and Robin (Damian Wayne) fighting the Absence. The Absence is a great villain, and she has not only Batman and Robin thinking but also the read...

English

review 1: I know this wasn't one of the more popular New 52 series from DC, but I really enjoyed it. It's more fantasy than superhero, which has my interest. The art is very well done. I also like ensemble casts and I find this one very interesting. The personalities of the various ch...
The Girl Who Loved Doctor Who (2013)

English

review 1: hm i want to come back to this. it was sweet and cute. i think the brevity worked in its favor since it was so clearly fanservice and i don't think i could've taken much of it. but for all its nonsense, it was still a quick and fun read. i might've given it a three because some o...
Stormwatch, Vol. 1: The Dark Side (2012)
language
English
3.2 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: This title introduces the original Stormwatch/Authority officially into the DC universe. I'm a big fan of Warren Ellis' original iteration of the title and while I enjoyed the new take on the team and its dimension spanning mission(s), it wasn't as intense or involving as it has ...
Knight and Squire (2011)
language
English
3.29 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Once this one gets going, it's pretty fun, but it takes a few issues to get there. The first couple issues trade plot and character for "Look how British we are moments!" The whole book's largely built around introducing odd characters (often unnamed people in a group) and it's f...
Captain Britain and MI13, Vol. 1: Secret Invasion (2009)
language
English
3.65 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Veteran Doctor Who writer Cornell may have jumped the Atlantic to scribe Marvel’s latest attempt to revive the Captain Britain character states-side, but he clearly is back in his element adding to the mythos of his homeland in this Secret Invasion tie-in. Although the art duties...
Captain Britain and MI13, Volume 3: Vampire State (2009)
language
English
3.95 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: The pros: This story is a showcase for the Peter Wisdom character as the whole outcome pivots on his involvement as leader of MI13. This British paranormal service was something new to me and I would be interested in finding out more about it and its leader and it is the reason I...
Demon Knights, Vol. 2: The Avalon Trap (2013)
language
English
series
3.41 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I liked this one, but it seemed to lose the fact that it was about all 7 'team members'. More focus was on Etrigan/Jason Blood and Madame Xanadu/Nimue than the rest. I'm hoping that the series gets to continue, and we'll have more in depth looks at all the characters: Al Jabr; Si...
