13 Coins #1 (Titan)
Infinite Speech: Took off fast but left some of the story behind. It’s still worth checking out.
All-New X-Factor #15 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: So Warlock can pretty much end the Red Skull’s influence in Axis…but NO ONE and I mean NO ONE want’s to address this?
NickZ: In the midst of Red Onslaught, the gang keeps Washington DC safer, while preventing the start of World War III, and for their troubles they get a nice treat (not).
The Amazing Spider-Man #8 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Nice team up issue w/ Ms. Marvel that ends w/ some great Spider-Verse action!
NickZ: Ms. Marvel and Spidey have a fun team-up, while Dan Slott traumatizes us with another Edge of Spider-Verse back-up story.
Amazing X-Men #12 (Marvel)
NickZ: The X-Men discover that in order to fight a god they must become gods.
Arkham Manor #1 (DC)
NickZ: Bruce Wayne is poor? Wayne Manor is the new Arkham? This looks like an interesting new development.
Avengers #37 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Hickman is making Time Runs Out a great mini event!
Avengers X-Men Axis #3 (Marvel)
Arnab: The rest of the mutants realize just how bad the Avengers really are, finally. #teamcyclops #cyclopswasright
Infinite Speech: Liked it until I read X-Factor. See Chirp for All New X-Factor.
NickZ: Is Axis becoming Avengers vs X-Men 2? At least the X-Men have FINALLY realized the Cyclops was RIGHT! Also, Dr. Doom is a bad ass.
Axis Hobgoblin #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Took way too long to set up for the so/so payoff at the end.
NickZ: Hobby uses his new found “world saving hero” status to cash in but the new Goblin King has some issues with that.
Batman Eternal #29 (DC)
Arnab: I do not like this Arkham story.
Martin: 3/5 stars. Jumping to a plot point that’s been ignored the past few issues. Serves mainly as an intro to Arkham Manor.
NickZ: I’m left with the same question as Batman, “The police, the streets, the asylum, the nano-swarm in the Narrows. But how did he do all this?”
Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10 #8 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: The gang fights a Davy Jones looking demon, Spike give Buffy a long over due apology, and Andrew uses the new rules of magic to attempt to resurrect 2 old favorites!
Butterfly #2 (Archaia)
Infinite Speech: This title does the spy genre proud
Catwoman #35 (DC)
NickZ: In the wake of Batman Eternal, Catwoman begins her new role as head of the crime families of Gotham! Awesome new direction, awesome new Selina.
Colder: The Bad Seed #1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Glad this series is back to creep me the hell out!
Cyclops #6 (Marvel)
Arnab: This story was ruined by the art.
NickZ: The art in this was pretty terrible and Layman isn’t off to a great start following Rucka.
Deadpool #36 (Marvel)
NickZ: Pretty much tells Deadpool’s perspective of the events of Axis and he achieves his version of a Bingo.
Death of Wolverine the Logan Legacy #2 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Not too bad as Laura needs some time away to process Logan’s death.
NickZ: A major let down from the first issue and the art was awful.
Deathstroke #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: First series gets cancelled and to make things different he gets a new body? At least the art was great.
Earth 2 World’s End #3 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. There’s a bit too much focus on the “new” Supes & Bats and not enough on GL, Flash, Hawkgirl, & Fate.
The Flash #35 (DC)
Arnab: Spoiler alert. Wally dies, again.
Infinite Speech: In true fashion Wally shows up just long enough to die…kinda…it’s all weird with time travel.
Martin: 4/5 stars. Booth’s art is the star here, even though some panels are a bit confusing. And a “Back to the Future” reference FTW!
Goners #1 (Image)
Martin: 4/5 stars. A promising start to a new horror book that changes many standard trappings to focus on family & non-standard horrors.
Harley Quinn #11 (DC)
Infinite Speech: I just know I’m going to have a good time whenever I open up this comic!
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #18 (DC)
Infinite Speech: This is the He-Man we deserved years ago!
Lazarus #12 (Image)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Top quality art as always & a fun change of setting – a gala ball among all the Families, with a focus on the Lazari
Multiversity – The Just #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: I liked this take on another alternate reality dealing w/ the Multiversity problems.
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. Absolutely stunning & theme-appropriate artwork back a story about ennui among teen “heroes.”
New 52 Futures End #25 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. A decent issue, but really nothing much happens. I’m intrigued by where SHADE/Stormwatch end up, though
New Warriors #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: I can’t believe there is only one more issue of this book. Marvel should cancel X-Force instead.
Oddly Normal #2 (Image)
Infinite Speech: This is anther great title I’ll point to when I hear there’s nothing for young readers in comics!
NickZ: Oddly enters the world of Fignation as Frampton keeps this issue just as delightful as the first.
Predator: Fire and Stone #1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: You won’t like the prey but you’ll love the Predator!
Rot & Ruin #2 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: I think they were safer in the room with the zombie babies.
Samurai Jack #13 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: Zub gets the slow 80s clap for what he’s done with this series!
Secret Origins #6 (DC)
NickZ: Picked up this comic for the Azzarello Wonder Woman origin story, but enjoyed the Sinestro and Deadman tales as well.
Super Secret Crisis War Cow and Chicken #1 (IDW)
NickZ: Cow and Chicken being ridiculous as per usual.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles / Ghostbusters #1 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: Didn’t know how this would come together but it’s pretty solid so far so give it a look!
The Walking Dead #133 (Image)
Arnab: Those people are freaks.
NickZ: These new “living” walkers have to go! As this series goes on, people seem to be getting more and more deranged.
The Wicked + The Divine #5 (Image)
NickZ: This issue was INSANE! I’m going to need the extra month to recover before the next arc begins. If you haven’t read this series pick up the trade next month!
NickZ: The ending is pretty shocking and the rest of the book sucked.
