aphrodite ix 11Aphrodite IX #11 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech: Series finale was great but now I can’t wait for July!

Avengers #31 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Not much to do with Original Sin but a decent story regardless

Batman & Robin #32 (DC)
Martin: 4.5 stars. I certainly didn’t see that ending coming, but the final showdown with Ra’s was great.

Batman Eternal #11 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Switching between multiple plot-lines makes it a bit jumbled. Bertram’s art is “different” but I liked it.

Daredevil #4 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: I like how what I thought was going to be stretched out over the issue was finished early so we could go to the rest which was really interesting.
Jeff: I am really digging Chris Samnee’s work on this book. So clean and so much fun.

Elektra #3 (Marvel)
Jeff: Mike Del Mundo might be the greatest artist working at Marvel right now. Holy Wow!

Fatale #23 (Image)
Dr. Bustos: We are reaching the end and possibly the end times, cannot wait!

Hulk #4 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Nothing is ever simple with you, is it Banner?

Arnab: Laika! NOOO! But then again… Yes? We shall see.
Dr. Bustos: Did not see any of this coming to Laika.

MPH #2 (Image)
Infinite Speech: HOLY $#@! this title is shaping up to be another jewel from Image!
Jeff: This is exactly what people with super-speed would do in real life.

New 52: Futures End #7 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. A great-looking issue but the story seemed to drag a bit. Speed it up, and give us more Frankenstein!

Nova #18 (Marvel)
Jeff: It’s kinda cheating if you take the exact storyline of another book and simply tell it from another person’s point of view.
Infinite Speech: Best friend murdered and dad wasn’t what he’d hoped he be. Sucks to be Sam right now.

Original Sin #4 (Marvel)
Arnab: Say whaaaat? This book is surprisingly good.
Infinite Speech: Great issue and you should have read Battle Scars people!
Jeff: I have to say it…I’m LOVING this event right now.

Private Eye #7 (Panel Syndicate)
Jeff: The only problem with this book is that I can’t seem to remember what happened in the previous issue and I’m too lazy to go back and read it.

Red Hood and the Outlaws #32 (DC)
Arnab: That terrible cover aside, this was actually a fairly decent issue.
Infinite Speech: Years later and this continues to be the standout title in the New 52 when SO MANY have fallen off!

Sex Criminals #6 (Image)
Arnab: This book is just so good.
Dr. Bustos: Very excited Sex Criminals is back and then it gut punched me with this introspective look at Jon’s mind.
Infinite Speech: This series is too much fun and there’s a villain named Kegelface! How can you NOT be reading this?!

Silver Surfer #3 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: This series continues to be my favorite Doctor Who run.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #35 (IDW)
Arnab: Is there a book that is better than this? This series is consistently amazing on all fronts.
Infinite Speech: Tom Waltz has been knocking this series out of the park and making this era of TMNT damn near perfect!

turtles time 1Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time #1 (IDW)
Arnab: Michelangelo is the best. Hands down, the best.
Infinite Speech: Mikey stole the show this issue and Renet shows up!

The Punisher #7 (Marvel)
Jeff: Ok, I tried Punisher for a while. Not really digging it.

Thor: God of Thunder #23 (Marvel)
Dr. Bustos: Thanks to the past and future, we get twice the great battles.
Jeff: Was there supposed to be a connection between the present Thor and the future Thor’s stories? If so, someone explain it to me.

Uncanny X-Men #22 (Marvel)
Arnab: I feel like that was just a tad anti-climactic.
Infinite Speech: I did NOT see that coming!
Jeff: Dark Beast, huh? Not as excited a reveal as I had hoped, but glad they finally killed him.

Unity #8 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: The good guys are going to need a LOT of backup.

the wicked and the divine 1The Wicked + the Divine #1 (Image)
Arnab: This was kind of amazing.
Dr. Bustos: This series starts with not one but three head explosions, you have my interest.
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. A spectacular debut with beautiful art and an intriguing & clever premise. My “comic of the week.”

Wolverine & the X-Men #5 (Marvel)
Jeff: My God, I thought Adjectiveless was bad. This is absolutely the worst X-Men book on the shelves.

Wonder Woman #32 (DC)
Dr. Bustos: I was sad that cover didn’t happen but boy have things escalated to have me sitting on the edge of my seat.

X-Men #15 (Marvel)
Arnab: Psylocke had a digital boyfriend? What?
Infinite Speech: So…yeah…this issue wan’t good.
Jeff: Please, make it stop.
