Adventures of Superman #15 (DC)
NickZ: This series has had the best Superman stories around and this issue is no exception.

All-New Ghost Rider #5 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Looks like there’s more to this new Ghost Rider and it’s good enough to stick around to find out!
Jeff: As good as this introduction to the new Ghost Rider was, Tradd Moore’s art got more ridiculous and over-the-top with each issue.

Avengers #33 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: It’s weird. It’s sci-fi. And Hickman is kicking ass with this!

cyclops 3Avengers World #10 (Marvel)|
Infinite Speech: This series just keeps getting better and better!

Batman: Detective Comics #3 (DC)
NickZ: “Icarus” was a fantastic Batman story! I loved how passionate Batman gets when children are being hurt, even if it’s from their parents.

Batman Eternal #17 (DC)
Arnab: Dustin Nguyen’s art is the only reason this arc hasn’t lost me as a reader.
Martin: 3/5 stars. So much of this just seems like stuff we’ve seen in past issues. Plus we get a Deacon Blackfire origin. Meh.
NickZ: I love Dustin Nguyen’s art on this book. His style works so well with Batman and the supernatural elements too!

Black Science #7 (Image)
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. An awesome kick-off to the 2nd arc with major character changes and a great cliffhanger ending.
NickZ: Black Science returns with another killer issue! I don’t know how long this series can go on with everyone dying like this.

Chew Warrior Chicken Poyo #1 (Image)
Infinite Speech: Poyo is the baddest cyborg chicken in existence! Read this and enjoy!
NickZ: Read Warrior Chicken Poyo for the incredible action and comedy, stay for the excellent last page cameo!

Cyclops #3 (Marvel)
Arnab: This book is so good. #teamcyclops
Infinite Speech: Damn, this was just sad. You really feel for kid Cyclops in this one.
Jeff: This could very well be the best Cyclops story ever written.
NickZ: It takes being stranded on an alien world, but the father/son bonding you been waiting for begins here.

day men 4Day Men #4 (BOOM!)
Arnab: When it’s out, this title is gold.
Infinite Speech: This title is worth the extended wait between issues!

East of West #14 (Image)
Arnab: Hands down one of the top five books available on the market right now.
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. Fabulous art as always, but the world-building and character development in this issue are fantastic as well.

Five Weapons #10 (Image)
Infinite Speech: I’m very sad to see that this is the final issue of such a great series. Get the trade folks!

Guardians of the Galaxy #17 (Marvel)
Arnab: Hrm, weird. Why wouldn’t Venom just come out of the shadows?
Jeff: Sidling us with two clashing artists, a quick tie-up to a story, and a let-down on the Gladiator/Drax fight was a great way to introduce new readers to the shameful way Marvel handles it’s properties in comic book form.

Hawkeye #19 (Marvel)
NickZ: There are no rules when it comes to Hawkguy. Matt Fraction just does whatever the hell he wants with this book and it works.

Justice League #32 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. The post-Forever Evil JL is one of my favorite arcs of the series so far. Love Doom Patrol but dislike Chief.
NickZ: Lex Luthor in the Justice League is the best thing to happen to this book since ever.

Low #1 (Image)
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. Really unique & interesting art combined w/ strong character work & world building. Premise is a bit depressing though!
NickZ: Remender has done it again! With one issue, i’m already hooked and don’t get me started on Tocchini’s amazing art. Another Sci-fi masterpiece.

New Avengers #21 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: That was rough for everyone involved but worse for T’Challa. Poor guy.

east of west 14New 52 Futures #End #13 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. It’s starting to feel like there are way too many story lines in this. I wouldn’t mind some focus.

Original Sin: Hulk vs. Iron Man #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Wow! Tony is getting his gamma irradiated comeuppance!
Jeff: Mark Bagley gets a lot of flack from folks, but I think he’s still just fantastic, and things just keep getting bad for Tony.

Outcast #2 (Image)
NickZ: This book continues to be terrifyingly delightful. This is Kirkman’s first book that lives up to the Walking Dead/Invicible standard he set a decade ago.

Samurai Jack #10 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: The opening theme plays for hours in my head after reading Zub’s stories!

Smallville Special #5 (DC)
NickZ: This Zatanna and Constantine team-up is delightful.

Super Secret Crisis War #2 (IDW)
NickZ: Last issue the villains showed what they could do together, this time is the heroes turn!

Uncanny Avengers #22 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Is EVERY Avengers book this week ending on a bad note?
Jeff: I still don’t understand the continuity of this story.
NickZ: How much of this is going to remain cannon? Is burt face Havok really married to Wasp? Do they have a daughter? Is Sunfire body-less? I need answers.

Uncanny X-Men #24 (Marvel)
Arnab: Considering all the shit Xavier has pulled, I can’t believe his death is still such a big deal.
Infinite Speech: This one was way better than last month’s issue.
Jeff: It looks like the seeds are really being sown for a reunification of the team.
NickZ: Xavier is what? With what? Who? WHAT?

Veil #4 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: It’s creepy and looks fantastic so you should be reading Veil!

the wake 10The Wake #10 (DC/Vertigo)
Arnab: This series was absolutely fantastic. Y’all should go pick it up in a trade, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Sean Murphy is amazing.
Jeff: Well, that sure ended with a resounding whimper.
Martin: 5/5 stars. A very satisfying conclusion to the 10-issue with some of @Sean_G_Murphy ‘s best art in the series yet.
NickZ: The Wake was a fantastic series from start to finish. It’s no wonder they won all those Eisner’s. Pick up the trade if you haven’t read it yet.

Witchblade #177 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech: Damn, and I was just starting to like her.

X-Men #17 (Marvel)
Arnab: Beast is a couple loose screws from being Dark Beast nowadays.
Infinite Speech: A strong ending that made up for the earlier issues.
Jeff: I just don’t care a bit about this book anymore.
NickZ: Beast is basically a mad scientists who must be stopped at all cost.

X-O Manowar #27 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Getting background on the Hunters just made everything better!


One Comment

  1. I’m starting to agree, Nick. Most of the future incarnations of Beast don’t show him ending up too well and I think that’s the path we’re on now.
