‘Gotham High’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Melissa De La Cruz | Art by Thomas Pitilli | Published by DC Ink | Format: Paperback, 208pp I think it’s fair to say that , rather like the main Batman franchise being DC’s cash cow, Gotham and the associated characters have been the most fruitful area of DC’s recent Young Adults books.

‘Wonder Woman: Warbringer’ Graphic Novel Review (DC Ink)

by Dean Fuller

Written by Louise Simonson | Art by Kit Seaton | Published by DC Comics/DC Ink I suppose it was inevitable that DC’s biggest female hero would get the Young Adult makeover at some point, and it’s slightly surprising it’s several books in.

Written by Lauren Myracle | Art by Isaac Goodhart | Format: Paperback, 208pp | Published by DC Ink Once upon a time DC Comics were quite the innovators. Usually at the forefront of advances in the industry, be it the first limited series, prestige format comics, mature theme material, even web comics. They’ve usually dipped […]
