all new xfactor 20All-New X-Factor #20 (Marvel)
Arnab: Super bummed that this is ending.
Infinite Speech: This is ONE of the two GOOD mutant books and it’s getting cancelled? Why?? Oh, and Warlock & Danger finally…engage. It was weird.
NickZ: This can’t be the last issue. I won’t accept that! Peter David isn’t done telling this story.

All-New X-Men #35 (Marvel)
Arnab: Does Miles have a teleporting power?
Infinite Speech: The OTHER good mutant title and everyone’s trapped in the Ultimate Universe and Doom is kicking their butts!
NickZ: Are you allowed to use the same cliffhanger twice in an issue and not show the resolution? I call foul.

The Amazing Spider-Man #13 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: It’s official that Spider-Verse is pretty much one the best things Marvel has going right now! Damn great event!
NickZ: Spider-Verse is the best comic book event in YEARS!

Batman & Robin #38 (DC)
Arnab: You go Damian!
Infinite Speech: I felt like Batman was about to give the “With great power…” speech in this one but it’s great to see Damian back!
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Good look at Damian & Bruce re-integrating with each other, but seems a bit rushed. Alfred steals the show.
NickZ: This actually made me feel sad for Damian, but I hope his powers go away soon, just doesn’t feel right in a Batman book.

Batman/Superman #18 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. The “Superman’s Joker” storyline continues and there’s some good stuff here with good art by Syaf.
NickZ: The Superman/Batman bromance hits an all time high as it’s revealed that losing Batman would be the ultimate blow for Superman.

Batman Eternal #42 (DC)
Arnab: Catwoman should not have such long legs.
Martin: 4/5 stars. Bluebird finally sees action in costume, & some great scenes with Stephanie Brown. Art is all over the place.
NickZ: Gotham’s two newest female heroes take center stage in this one. Total girl power all the way to the final page.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #11 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: Spike and Buffy shippers, this issue is for you!

Captain America & The Mighty Avengers #4 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Nice redemption issue for Cap but Luke can’t seem to stay safe!

Earth 2 World’s End #16 (DC)
Martin: 2/5 stars. Visually this book looks great. Other than that, it’s really lived past any point of usefulness.

G.I. Joe: Snake Eyes, Agent of Cobra #1 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: This issue left me speechless. And not in the cool Snake Eyes kind of way. Hopefully the next issue is a little better.

Galaxy Quest #1 (IDW)ivar timewalker 1
Infinite Speech: Looks like the Omega 13 caused more problems than it fixed! Can’t wait to see what else happens!

Guardians of the Galaxy #23 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: I could hear the collective sigh of Marvel fanboys as the Symbiote origin was revealed. The new costume might grow on me though.

Invincible #116 (Image)
NickZ: This issue dramatically displays how great Ryan Ottley is at drawing both “talking head” scenes and gratuitous violence scenes.

Ivar, Timewalker #1 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Another home run for Van Lente and Henry so pick this one up!

Justice League #38 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Fabok’s art continues to be fabulous. Luthor & Capt Cold steal the show. Waiting for a Team-Up book for them.

Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Another fantastic art book that any fan of the series should have in their collection!

Loki Agent of Asgard #10 (Marvel)
NickZ: Ewing and Garbett made a really powerful Thor and Loki story that will hit you right in the feels.

Lumberjanes #10 (Boom!)
NickZ: How can you make Lumberjanes even more awesome? Dinosaurs, of course!

Magneto #14 (Marvel)
NickZ: Haunted by past failures, Magneto makes a shocking decision.

Moon Knight #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: Another fantastic issue. Wood, Smallwood, and Bellaire are hitting it out of the park in this book.

New 52 Futures End #38 (DC)
Martin: 2.5/5 stars. I’m really disappointed in the “confrontation” between Batman & Terry McGuinness. What a waste.

Penny Dora and the Wishing Box #3 (Image)
NickZ: I think these girls are about to figure out that with great power much come great responsibility.

Powers #1 (Icon)
Infinite Speech: If you have liked anything else by Bendis and Oeming then picking this up is a no brainer!

Red Hood and the Outlaws #38 (DC)scarlet spiders 3
Infinite Speech: So did the team just get a new member?
NickZ: Red Hood gets help tracking Starfire from a very unlikely source.

Rocket Raccoon #7 (Marvel)
NickZ: Skottie Young is writing the hell out of this book. It’s fun and quirky and exactly what you want for a Rocket Raccoon story.

Samurai Jack #16 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: Samurai Jack is in great hands with Jim Zub!

Scarlet Spiders #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Nooooooo!!!! Did that really have to happen???
NickZ: I was super sad to see one of these three kick the bucket but it was in true, heroic Spidey fashion!

Sensation Comics #6 (DC)
NickZ: Two really great Wonder Woman stories and one of them has Big Barda!

Spider-Verse Team-Up #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: A nice companion story to Spider-Verse.
NickZ: Too many great Spider-Men to mention. Just pick up the issue.

Spider-Woman #3 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: I wonder how good this title will be after Spider-Verse is over. THAT will be the real test.
NickZ: Three Spider-Women team up and it’s awesome.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #42 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: So many double crosses in this! This series is too great for it’s own good!

Teen Titans #6 (DC)wicked and divine 7
Arnab: I didn’t even know we “lost” the old Power Girl, but ok cool I guess.
NickZ: We get a new Power Girl and she’s very different than the last one.

Uber #21 (Avatar)
Infinite Speech: I can’t believe I was going to NOT read this title!

The Wicked + The Divine #7 (Image)
NickZ: Gillen is writing the ultimate commentary on current pop culture.

Wolverines #3 (Marvel)
NickZ: This book is just having fun and I can get onboard with that.

Wonder Woman #38 (DC)
NickZ: The Mr. and Mrs. Finch make great comic book goodness together!
