REVIEW: Warner shits the bed with BATMAN: HUSH (2019)

I stopped collecting comic books around 1996 or 1997. The hobby was no longer interesting; it became too expensive to buy new issues because speculators were driving the prices up, and the incessant need to throw all of the hyper-kinetic and overdrawn X-Men styled art

REVIEW: Meathook Massacre VI: Bloodline (2020)
