No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.

Nite Owl, Before Watchmen,

Nite Owl #1 Review “No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.” It’s quickly being established that the “Before Watchmen” series is going for broke. I have yet to read one that’s bad, let alone just decent. Nite Owl #1 hit store shelves today, and with 3 more stories still incoming, I can’t imagine DC is […]


Before Watchmen, Comedian, DC Comics

Comedian #1 Review “Smile” “Before Watchmen” has done a fantastic job showing you the Silk Spectre and Minutemen, but has it prepared you for the Comedian? Which is truly an unfair question to ask since nothing can prepare you for Eddie Blake. But instead of seeing a rage filled psychopath you find a well respected […]
