Adventures of Superman #7 (DC)
NickZ: These are the kind of stories that make Superman interesting. Stories where he can’t just punch his way out of a problem.

All-New X-Men #19 (Marvel)
Arnab: I can’t wait for the X-23/Scott love affair. I ship that already.
Infinite Speech: Reading this makes you remember how useless Warren was before Apocalypse got ahold of him.
Jeff: Oh great, more stereotypical Christian nutjobs. Can someone please find a way to make the Purifiers a viable threat?
NickZ: X-23 and Cyclops? NO! JUST NO!

Aphrodite IX #6 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech: New arc. New art style. Great story you should be reading!

avengers arena 18Avengers Arena #18 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: The fallout from all of this is going to piss some people in the Marvel Universe off!
Jeff: I was hoping for one more tragic death before this ended. Still think this could have lasted a few more issues.
NickZ: What a crazy and controversial series. You’ll love it or hate it but it’s worth reading. For the recored I love it!

Batman: The Dark Knight #25 (DC)
Arnab: That ending is just all kinds of gross.
NickZ: Batman is such a smart ass in this issue.

Bedlam #10 (Image)
Arnab: This book is fantastic.
Jeff: The art in this book has got to change, or I’m on the first bus outta Bedlam.

Black Science #1 (Image)
Infinite Speech: Fantastic sci-fi action from Remender & Scalera! Can’t wait till the 2nd issue!
Jeff: This is Matteo Scalera & Dean White’s finest artistic work, but the script didn’t do much for me at all.
Martin: Everyone’s darling book of the week. Pretty good, with fabulous art. A little too wordy, but a fun ending.

Catwoman #25 (DC)
NickZ: Selina takes her first steps into anti-hero life in this “Zero Year” flash back.

Damian Son of Batman #2 (DC)
Arnab: Boring. This issue is ridiculous and not particularly worth your dollar.
Infinite Speech: Having a lot of fun with this plus we get Damian!
Martin: People just keep trashing this book. It’s not that bad and the art is quite good. I’ll give it a chance.
NickZ: If you thought the first issue was crazy, wait until you see what happens in this one.

Deadpool Annual #1 (Marvel)
Arnab: This issue started out funny, then got a little crazy, and ended sad.
NickZ: Finally, we learn the origin of other voice inside Deadpool’s head! (and no, not the SHIELD lady)

Doctor Who #15 (IDW)
Jeff: Nice little nod to the 50th anniversary.

fvz 20Fanboys vs. Zombies #20 (Boom! Studios)
Arnab: I’m going to miss this book, I really am. I loved the approach to this final issue though. Wrecking Crew Forever!

The Flash #25 (DC)
Arnab: Barry and Iris. Barry and Iris! BARRY AND IRIS! If only this issue didn’t take place 6 years ago.
Martin: These Zero-Year tie-ins are starting to bug a bit, but it’s fun to see Barry in action before he gains his powers.
NickZ: Barry gets called out to help the GCPD in this “Zero Year” flash back. Pretty interesting seeing him get along with Gotham City’s finest.

Forever Evil: A.R.G.U.S. #2 (DC)
Martin: I liked this better than the first issue, but it still seems superfluous to the main story line.

Half Past Danger #6 (IDW)
Martin: Nice end to the story-arc w/ potential for more in the future. There’s an ending but it leaves things open.

Hawkeye #14 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: I miss the Kate and Clint team ups but I do love these solo adventures too.
NickZ: Kate doing the LA thing was kinda boring. Hawkeye without that Hawkguy just doesn’t work as well.

Indestructible Hulk #16 (Marvel)
Jeff: I really liked the focus on Jessup as a supporting character, and the art by Mahmud Asrar fits the book perfectly!

infinity 6Infinity #6 (Marvel)
Arnab: That was kind of cool, you know, for an Avenger event. Hickman rules.
Infinite Speech: The bad feeling I had about the future of the Marvel U got worse after reading this. Something bad is coming!
Jeff: I’ve given Hickman a chance, but still find myself nodding off at his books. I’m done.

Justice League Dark #25 (DC)
Martin: Strong art & fun interactions between Constantine & Swamp Thing. Blight is a bit generic right now.

Maxx: Maxximized (IDW)
Infinite Speech: There was nothing like it when it originally debuted and I still holds up well today!

New Avengers #12 (Marvel)
Jeff: See my Chirp of Infinity #6.
Infinite Speech: Great epilogue to Infinity and you just KNOW something worse is on it’s way!

Nova #10 (Marvel)
Jeff: A nice homage to 100 issues of Nova. Just wish Rich Rider had shown up.

The Power Puff Girls #3 (IDW)
NickZ: The Power Puff Girls have a hard time adjusting to their villains being good for a change. It was cool seeing them all fight on the same side for once.

Powers: Bureau #8 (Icon)
Infinite Speech: Can this title get any better? Bendis and Oeming are an awesome team!

Rat Queens #3 (Image)
Infinite Speech: Wiebe and Upchurch deliver one of the best new comics on the shelves so read it!
Jeff: Fantastic art, but I missed some of the big action from the first 2 issues.

saga 16Saga #17 (Image)
Arnab: 17 issues in and not a single one has been close to being mediocre. Shit’s about to go down in a crazy way.
Dr. Bustos: We finally come back around when things all go to hell. Excited and sad.
Infinite Speech: Whatever day it was that Vaughn and Staples got together to make this title should be a holiday.
Jeff: Glad the story has finally caught up to Prince Robot IV getting to Oswald’s lighthouse. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
NickZ: Looks like the catching our breath time is over. Things are about to get crazy!

Savage Wolverine #12 (Marvel)
Jeff: It’s good to see Jimenez back on an X-book.
NickZ: It’s so strange to me how Wolverine cares more for some dead animals than for the people he murders.

Scarlet Spider #24 (Marvel)
NickZ: Does Kaine’s guilt over resent events mean the end of the Scarlet Spider? I hope not.

Star Wars: Legacy (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Leave it to General Stazi to be only one with balls enough to come to the rescue!

Superior Carnage #5 (Marvel)
NickZ:  Did the Superior Spider-Man really defeat Carnage or help it evolve into something worse?

The Superior Spider-Man #22 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: New Venom meeting New Spider-Man is a treat.
Infinite Speech: HELL NO! There is NO WAY “Peter” should have left to answer that call. Third base is too important!
Jeff: I hope Flash is the one who discovers Spidey’s secret!
NickZ: You knew it had to happen, Superior Spider-Man vs Agent Venom!

Superman #25 (DC)
Arnab: Dear DC, you suck. Killing Superboy again? Really? Twice in 8 years? The new52 is trash.
NickZ: So… is Superboy dead and Krypton back? I’m so confused.

Talon #13 (DC)
NickZ: The civil war within the Court of Owls seems to be reaching its end but what will that mean for Talon?

tmnt28Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #28 (IDW)
Arnab: Hot fiery damn. “City Fall” is one of the best arcs in recent comic history.
Infinite Speech: “City Fall” rocked and if you missed it I feel sorry for you!

Teen Titans #25 (DC)
Arnab: This series is a huge clusterfuck of ideas and events and problems and it’s just not working.
NickZ: Why wasn’t this a “Zero Year” issue about Tim Drake? I hate you new 52.

Uncanny Avengers #14 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Holy crap! Didn’t expect Remender to pull that one out of his hat! Oh, and Jeff was right!
Jeff: Lots of stabbing in this issue, and it was great!
NickZ: Holy CRAP!! This issue had some stuff go down! I have a feeling that Kang and his assembled team are going to change the events of this issue though. :-/

Uncanny X-Force #14 (Marvel)
NickZ: Why would Psylocke want her old body back? That was a bad play by Cassandra Nova.

The Walking Dead #117 (Image)
Arnab: Negan is all the more creepier, when he starts talking sane.
Jeff: So now Negan has morals?
NickZ: This war is crazy and Negan is a fascinating antagonist. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

Wolverine and the X-Men #38 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Broo is right, it’s the most amazing school in the universe.
Infinite Speech: How could you read this issue and NOT have fun! Oh, and Maria Hill BURNED Wolverine!
Jeff: Read the Annual before this issue or you’ll be wondering how Kid Gladiator came back like I was.
NickZ: I’m so curious what Mystique’s end game is going to be? What is she after?

Wolverine and the X-Men Annual #1 (Marvel)
Jeff: Hooray! Kid Gladiator is back!
NickZ: Glad to see Kid Gladiator back, he’s one of the few students that I really liked at Wolverine’s school.
