Infinite Speech: Brian Ash and Ron Wimberly do Black Dynamite justice in this first issue! Can you dig it?!

Lenore Vol. 2 #9 (Titan Comics)
Decapitateddan: WARNING THIS ISSUE CONTAINS HILARIOUS BEAR ABUSE! I wish this came out weekly, this book is so funny and so good. Dirge is one talented mofo. 5/5

Miracleman #1 (Marvel)
Jeff: Marvel would do well to just reintroduce Miracleman into the regular universe, instead of starting with reprints of the classic stuff which basically prove that MM is Captain Marvel/Shazam.
Martin: A bit uneven going from Silver Age to Alan Moore circa 1982 to interviews, but it’s a great piece of comic history

notld 1Night of the Living Deadpool #1 (Marvel)
Arnab:
Deadpool, check. Zombies, check. Awesome, check.

Decapitateddan: THIS IS THE BEST COMIC IN PRINT! Terry Moore is a comic genius on all levels!!! LOVE IT! 5/5

Rat Queens #4 (Image)

Jeff Lake: Freaking Gary…this book just keeps getting better and better. Irreverent and hilarious.

Secret Avengers #14 (Marvel)
Jeff: I’m confused. Who is Mockingbird?

Jeff Lake: Johnny Blaze on the Thunderbolts? Hell yes.

Uncanny X-Force #16 (Marvel)
Jeff: I’m completely reminded why I dropped this book ages ago.

Uncanny X-Men #16 (Marvel)
Arnab: Magneto needs a bit of therapy. Maybe that’s why he never killed Xavier.
Jeff:
This is a great introduction to the upcoming Magneto on-going. But when did Blob get fat again after M-Day?

Unity #3 (Valiant)

Jeff Lake: I am blown away by this series. THIS is how you handle a crossover. Take note, Big Two.

Velvet #3 (Image)

Jeff Lake: Velvet makes James Bond look like Mr. Bean. Brubaker and Epting are in perfect sync right now.
