CHIRPBANNER1

Alpha Big Time #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: So when this book is over can Alpha join the Young Avengers? Or even better get his own ongoing series?

Archer & Armstrong #0 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: 
One of the best zero issues to ever come out!

Jeff: So good to have Clayton Henry back for this issue. And I always wondered who really wrote The Tale of Gilgamesh.

408500_649446798404277_937257289_nAstonishing X-Men #62 (Marvel)
Arnab: I stayed away from that crossover, which was so unimportant I can’t even remember the name, but I’m back and glad, because Marjorie Liu is great when she’s allowed to be. A
Jeff: If Marjorie Liu can continue to focus on the relationships in this book, this book will be great. I loved the return of Iceman’s ex-girlfriends!
NickZ: This was my favorite issue since Marjorie Liu has started writing this book! MORE of this! PLEASE!

Avengers #11 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: The best issue in the series so far and Deodato brings is “A” game with the art!

Avengers Arena #9 (Marvel)
Jeff: Apex is shaping up to be one of the coolest new villains in the Marvel Universe.
NickZ: NOOO! I didn’t want that person to die!

Avenging Spider-Man #20 (Marvel)
Jeff: Spidey + Secret Avengers = pretty cool.
NickZ: This totally had the feel of the Avengers movie! Yost is brilliant. I love it!

Batman #20 (DC)
Arnab: Why didn’t any of the cops say, “Hey man, why are you walking around with your benefactor’s DNA? Not cool.” A-
Dr. Bustos: The Batman Beyond suit showing up was worth the price of admission. A
Infinite Speech: Meh…I guess it was okay.
Jeff: I hate those lame secret identity swerves. How stupid is the Gotham police department?
NickZ: The Bruce and Alfred moments in this issue were just too much feels! The World’s Finest back up was great too, James Tynion IV is quickly become one of my favorite new writers.

Batman and Red Hood #20 (DC)
Arnab: I’m still waiting on the reasoning for why Bruce when to Frankenstein instead of a Lazarus Pit. A-
NickZ: Is it strange to anyone else that Bruce and Jason have a better relationship than Bruce and Tim in the new 52verse?

Bravest Warriors #8 (kaboom!)
Dr. Bustos: Twists upon twists upon twists with giant robots, enjoyable. B

Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 9 #21 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: All I can say about this issue is DAMMIT XANDER!

img_comics_15372_deadpool-9Deadpool #9 (Marvel)
Arnab: It’s times like these that remind you that Deadpool is first and foremost, an assassin. You should also be reminded, at these times, that he’s awesome. A
Dr. Bustos: This certainly has taken a dark turn. C+
NickZ: Dang, Deadpool is so cold blooded!

Dresden Files: Ghoul Goblin #4 (Dynamite)
Dr. Bustos: I still wish the artist could draw magic spells different since the rest is great. A

The Fearless Defenders #4 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: The team if finally getting together and I’m excited to see what they do. A

Grimm #1 (Dynamite)
Dr. Bustos: I enjoy the show and this looks like a variation of the show that doesn’t need to worry about budgets. A

Justice League of America #3 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Definitely having more fun reading this title than most others in the DC New 52.

NickZ: The Catwoman/Martian Manhunter mind-meld was pretty interesting.

Legend of the Shadow Clan #4 (Aspen)
Infinite Speech: Fun! Fun! Fun! Give it a try if you haven’t done so already!

Secret Avengers #4 (Marvel)
Jeff: A mind-wiped Bruce Banner on this team seems like major trouble down the road. This book rocks!

Smallville: Season Eleven #13 (DC)
NickZ: I cannot stress enough how much Superman fans should be reading this book! It’s so good!

Superboy #20 (DC)
NickZ: We are now 20 issues deep, I think it’s time for Superboy to get his s*#t together.

TMAR130649_1hor: God of Thunder #8 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Loving the culmination of the Thors and the ready to battle. Put on your favorite heavy metal for the boat trip. A+
Infinite Speech: Why couldn’t Thor be this good years ago!
Jeff: We finally get all 3 Thors together and it’s absolutely phenomenal. Esad Ribic’s work is flawless.

Twelve Reasons To Die #1 (Black Mask)
Infinite Speech: It reads like a zero issue but a solid one from Adrian Younge and Ghostface Killah! Wu-Tang clan ain’t nothin’ to $#@% with!

Uncanny Avengers #8 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: 
It took a while but I’m really excited about this title now!

Jeff: Thor and Sunfire get some panel-time together. I never thought I’d enjoy that idea as much as I did.
NickZ: This book is getting pretty crazy! I love all this Apocalypse crap.

Uncanny X-Force #4 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
If there’s one person liking this book I’d like to meet him/her and ask “why?”.
Jeff: This book is terrible. Humphries has no focus on the plot.
NickZ: I am really loving this book and I think I’m the only one.

The Walking Dead #110 (Image)
Arnab: Can you imagine if Michonne was all, “Bitch, please, hands off the merchandise”, killed Ezekiel, and then just took the Tiger for herself? That’d be kinda cool. A
Jeff: So…Michonne is basically going to have a thing with every black guy left in TWD universe.
NickZ: Michonne is totally gonna hit that!

Wolverine #3 (Marvel)
Jeff: I like the “team” that Wolverine takes Fury to see. Didn’t blow my socks off, but this book is steady.
NickZ: Another boring Wolverine story. I swear he is the Superman of Marvel.

X #1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Why didn’t I read about this character when he first came out?? Better late than never though!
