Astro City #49 comic reviewAstro City #49 takes a look at the unusual hero Registor as shown through the eyes of a reporter who catches the wiff (literally) of a story with ties to her childhood when she witnesses the hero appear to stop an attack by Earthpride white supremacists during a protest. With ties to old school civil disobedience, civil rights protests and rallies, I’d be curious to know the origins of this story which tie our protagonist’s current search back to her missing father.

Doomsday Clock #1

Doomsday Clock #1 comic reviewDC Comics’ next big event begins here. Born out the the Rebirth reboot, which introduced that idea that Dr. Manhattan was responsible for the shitstorm that was The New 52, Doomsday Clock #1 returns us to the world of Watchmen. Despite his plan initially succeeding, Ozymandias has seen the truth exposed by the Rorschach journal and his world fall back into chaos.

The first issue of the twelve-issue maxi-series re-introduces us to the world of Watchmen along with a new, but apparently no less disturbed, Rorschach. After freeing the Mime and the Marionette, Rorschach and Ozymandias will begin their search for Dr. Manhattan who is now their last hope to save their world. However, he’s been busy playing in a different reality.
