CHIRPBANNER1

Adventure Time #19 (Boom!)
NickZ: Another great adventure that also teaches kids important life lessons without them realizing. Mad props to the Ice King in this one!

Aprhodite IX #4 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech:
That is definitely one way to keep from killing the person you love!

avengers 18Avengers #18 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
After Infinity I’m seeing the bigger picture here and it’s great!

Batman & Nightwing #23 (DC)
Arnab: Man I miss Damian.
Martin: Excellent character work between Nightwing & Bruce, and a touching moment w/ Alfred. Really strong art.
NickZ: The most emotional Batman comic since the death of Damian. If you didn’t cry reading this you are dead inside or you’re a robot.

Batwoman #23 (DC)
Dr. Bustos:We’re prepping for the big time and it feels like all then ducks are getting put in a row. B

Birds of Prey #23 (DC)
NickZ: Some interesting revelations but not enough to keep me reading this book. I think I’m out.

Bloodshot #0 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Pick this up and start reading this series!
Jeff Lake: At long lost, an origin! If you’re reading Bloodshot, grab this book. If you aren’t, grab it anyway.

Cable & X-Force #13 (Marvel)
Arnab: This book is just so damn good.
Jeff: I liked the fill-in artist in the back. Looked like he is Joe Mad-inspired.
NickZ: I’m totally digging this book. The whole future Hope thing is pretty cool, plus the art is great.

Dream Thief #4 (Dark Horse)
Martin: Strong art & intriguing story, which takes a bit of a turn this issue as Lincoln uses his powers in a new way.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #5 (DC)
Infinite Speech:
Whoa! This is NOT your 80’s He-Man! Give it a try and find out why!

love trouble 6I Love Trouble #6 (Image)
Infinite Speech: This was one very fun series and I’m ticked that it’s over now!
Jeff: Was this the last issue of this series? Major letdown on story and art.

Indestructible Hulk #12 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Hulk punches out a T-Rex in cowboy times while a flying robot Bruce Banner watches. A
Jeff: Sometimes this book is just awesome, and sometimes it has Hulk fighting dinosaurs with Marvel cowboys.

Justice League Dark #23 (DC)
Martin: Fantastic art & good dialogue, but overall the Trinity War storyline just isn’t doing anything for me.
NickZ: More heroes fighting heroes but at least we got to see Zatanna kick some ass.

Morbius the Living Vampire #8 (Marvel)
NickZ: I really like Morbius but this book just isn’t keeping my interest.

Nova #7 (Marvel)
Jeff: This book seems pretty aimless. But so glad to see Justice and Speedball back!

Number Cruncher #2 (Titan)
Dr. Bustos: That poor woman is having her life ruined by these two selfish jerks. B

Red Hood and the Outlaws #23 (DC)
Infinite Speech:
Can the big battle just start already?! Sheesh!

Supergirl #23 (DC)
NickZ: So the Cyborg Superman is really…WHO? WHAT?

ssm 16Superior Spider-Man #16 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Watching a Spider-Man ruled New York is terrifying and I almost felt sorry for Hobgoblin. A
Infinite Speech: Something very cool is on the horizon as Slott bangs out another great issue!
Jeff: I’m liking the Goblin army…if only Ramos could draw every issue.
NickZ: Love him or hate him, Dan Slott is making a damn interesting and entertaining Spider-Man book right here! For the record, I LOVE IT!

Superman Unchained #3 (DC)
Arnab: Boooring.
Infinite Speech: Please put this series back in chains and drop it in the bottom of a pool w/ a kryptonite rock on top.
Martin: Nice to get more background on Wraith, but too much concentration on General Lane vs Superman.
NickZ: Not gonna lie, the whole idea of an ultra powerful dude no one ever knew about is kinda lame, but in Snyder I trust and who can turn down anything with Jim Lee’s art.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villain MicroSeries: Karai #5 (IDW)
Infinite Speech:
Karai isn’t to be messed with and this issue proves it! Another great villain story in the TMNT mythos!
Jeff Lake: Intriguing look at Foot villain Karai, who’s none too pleased with her grandfather’s new protege. What’s she up to?

Trinity of Sin: Pandora #3 (DC)
Martin: At this point I’m only reading this due to the Trinity War tie-in. Not a super interesting character.

ww 23Wonder Woman #23 (DC)
Dr. Bustos: That’s one heck of a way to end a storyline. A+
NickZ: This book is epic on a mythic scale! Seriously, I haven’t loved Wonder Woman this much since the Justice League animated show.

X-Factor #261 (Marvel)
Jeff: What was that? This issue made no sense.
NickZ: This issue was just dumb. I hope the “last” issue is better.

X-Men #4 (Marvel)
Arnab: Can Storm just leave already?
Dr. Bustos: Nice seeing Jubilee and Wolverine chat while the rest of the team casually handle saving an airplane. A
Infinite Speech: I still think Storm should have slapped the scars off of Rachel’s face for all of that attitude. Nice little story though w/ heart.
Jeff: Great…this title is now back to it’s usual suckiness before they rebooted it. Bring back Coipel!
NickZ: Okay, I love everything about this book except Rachel questioning Storm’s leadership. Where does she get off checking Storm like that?

X-Men Legacy #15 (Marvel)
NickZ: Man, Legion has such a horrible life! Nothing seems to go good for him and now that he’s got Cyclops in his sights, I don’t think that luck is going to change.

X-O Manowar #16 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech:
Aric’s heart is in the right place but man is he being an @$$hole about everything.
