Adventure Time Marceline Gone Adrift #2 (Boom!)
NickZ: Marcy has been sent to space and the Candy Kingdom is in a somber state, but damn if this amazing P-bubs cover won’t cheer them up!

all new xmen 36All-New X-Men #36 (Marvel)
Arnab: When will we be rid of all versions of Beast?
Infinite Speech: This arc wrapped up perfectly and young Beast shows symptoms of idiocy like his older counterpart.
NickZ: I love the interactions between Miles Morales and the Jean Greys, and how much Iceman annoys Iceman.

The Amazing Spider-Man #14 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Spider-Verse can’t be over already! That was so much fun!
NickZ: I’m so glad there is still an epilogue because I am not ready for the Spider-Verse to be over!

Astro City #20 (Vertigo)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Awesome art as always, and a really poignant look at what happens to non-powered heroes as they age.

Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Rift (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: This series perfectly captures the voice of the show and will make you miss watching it!

Batman Eternal #45 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Fernandez’s art is the star, especially some great scenes w/ Bruce & his parents. The BBEG finally revealed!
NickZ: I knew this guy would be showing up sooner or later but I don’t think he is the mastermind of this either.

Cyclops #10 (Marvel)
Arnab: Some people just don’t know how to say thank you.
NickZ:
This issue really demonstrates how different teen Cyclops is than adult Cyclops, but I am not sure which is better.

Darth Vader #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: The Force was very strong with this one!
NickZ: Another great Star Wars series. I actually have a lot of sympathy for Vader. The Emperor is such a d***!

divinity 1Divinity #1 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Valiant is giving us some of the most unique array of comics from their creative teams and this one is just as strong as the rest!

Earth 2 World’s End #19 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. The pacing of this story is just “off.” How many issues will the Parliament be “almost destroyed”?

Guardians of the Galaxy #24 (Marvel)
Arnab: That’s a whole lotta power and a whole lotta stupid in one place.
Infinite Speech: MUCH better than pt 1 and once again makes Beast a very hard character to like.
NickZ: Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely! #Kittywasright

Justice League United #9 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. This is a fun story, but there are so many characters involved right now it’s a bit disjointed.
NickZ: Whenever you have too many heroes, they become a hinderance rather than a help.

New 52 Futures End #41 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. There’s a really cool double-page spread involving the pre-New 52 continuity. Other than that… just OK.

Nightcrawler #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: Todd Nauck and Rachelle Rosenberg did a fantastic job on this cover!

Rachel Rising #31 (Abstract Studios)
Infinite Speech: Was I supposed to laugh when the baby spoke through the belly? Because I so did.

southern bastards 7Rai #7 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: If your cereal can be made into a bomb then you should stop eating said cereal.

Smallville Continuity #3 (DC)
NickZ: Barbra Gordon becomes a Blue Lantern! This is the best DC event in forever and it’s not even in the actual DC Universe.

Southern Bastards #7 (Image)
Infinite Speech: I really wanted to hate Coach Boss but Aaron won’t let me!

Spider-Woman #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: I was worried that I’d lose interest in this book after Spider-Verse but this issue was only half SV-related but ALL AWESOME! I can’t wait for the new costume and stuff.

Tech Jacket #8 (Image)
Infinite Speech: Such a great issue in a series that you should be reading with a strong story and jaw dropping artwork!
NickZ: Keatinge balances character drama and world shattering action perfectly and Randolph’s art is FANTASTIC!

Thor #5 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: This series is exceeding expectations and I can’t wait for the next issue!

Uber #22 (Avatar)
Infinite Speech: This is Canaan White’s last issue 🙁
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Another arc closes – no huge surprises or cliff-hangers, but a solid story. Last issue with Canaan White’s art.

walking dead 137The Walking Dead #137 (Image)
Arnab: So uh, tongues. yup.
NickZ: Literally one of the top 5 grosses moments of this series takes place in this issue! Plus, Carl finally gets some action.

Wolverines #6 (Marvel)
NickZ: Things get way too brutal in this issue and that includes the X-Men!

World’s Finest #31 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. Jed Dougherty’s art gives this an appropriate retro feel but the story seems mailed in. Not a great issue.

X-Force #15 (Marvel)
NickZ: It only took 15 tries, but X-Force finally had a decent issue.

X-Men #24 (Marvel)
NickZ: So when did Rachel and Psylocke become so weak? What happened to their powers?
