Action Comics #959 (DC)
Martin: 3/5 stars. I’m not a big fan of “two super-powered characters punch each other for 22 pages” stories.
NickZ: Action! Mystery! Drama! This book has it all! Superman is back!
Adventure Time #54 (Boom!)
NickZ: Jake and Finn in the old west riding on snails is everything you never knew you always wanted!
All-New X-Men #11 (Marvel)
Arnab: Booooooooring. Stop trying to make Beast happen. He hasn’t been relevant since he was first created.
NickZ: The “Apocalypse War” story line in this series was absolutely pointless. Come on Marvel, make the X-Men great again!
Batman:Detective Comics #936 (DC)
Arnab: Hot Damn! Shit’s gettin’ real.
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. Another great issue combining great story-telling & art. Loving the Bat family character interactions.
NickZ: Seems like we are getting into the meat and potatoes of this series and I am fully onboard!
Civil War II #3 (Marvel)
Arnab: I feel like this issue was a bit rushed. Or the death was rushed. The back and forth to the court room just felt like a distraction and a disservice to the events.
Infinite Speech: Marquez & Ponsor are the true Champs in this issue! So much visual greatness on these pages.
Martin: 3/5 stars. The art looks really great here, but the tension behind the “big mystery death” was a little rushed.
NickZ: The best issue of this book yet! I need to know what happens next!
Civil War II: Choosing Sides #2 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Every story here can stand on its own but that Whitley & Sauvage one was a dragon punch in the feels.
Conan the Slayer #1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Is there a day where Conan isn’t cleaving a man in half?
Deadpool #15 (Marvel)
NickZ: It’s Deadpool vs Black Panther and I promise you do not want to miss it!
Descender #13 (Image)
Arnab: This is one of those rare books where you finish and issue and immediately want to research hundreds of years of history. But there isn’t any.
NickZ: The depth of character development in this book is amazing as is Dustin Nguyen’s art work!
Flash #2 (DC)
Arnab: It feels like a whole lot of death is coming. They’re all going to die.
Infinite Speech: This creative team is giving us a damn good Flash title and an overload of speedsters!
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. The creative team is clearly setting up a big Flash story arc, but this issue is mostly set-up for the future.
Hal Jordan & the Green Lantern Corps (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Good story & art, but for a #1 it seems like it requires a lot of back-issue reading.
Horizon #1 (Skybound)
Infinite Speech: The creative team just formed like Voltron to bring us one of the hottest new comics on the shelf!
The Legend of Wonder Woman #8 (DC)
Martin: 5/5 stars. I’m happy Rucka is on the “main” title, but this is hands-down the best WW book out right now.
NickZ: Diana, Etta, and the Holliday Girls are so fearless! I love it!
Lumberjanes Gotham Academy #2 (Boom!)
NickZ: This book has the Lumberjanes, the Gotham Academy kids, and a magical 80’s themed birthday party! What more can you ask for?
New Super-Man #1 (DC)
Martin: 2/5 stars. I love the idea of this book, but Kenan is not likable, & looks different in literally every single panel.
Infinite Speech: The issue had me up until that final panel but I believe it the quality of Yang’s writing so I’m staying.
Nightwing Rebirth #1 (DC)
Arnab: Grayson was consistently one of my favorite books, and this series looks to be right on track to being just as great.
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. One of the Rebirth titles I’ve most been looking forward to, and the story and art do not disappoint.
NickZ: Dick Grayson’s continual identity crisis gets old, especially when he always just ends up being Nightwing again.
Ninjak #17 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: WOW! This arc just opened more questions and a new level of cool for Roku.
Old Man Logan #8 (Marvel)
NickZ: This series has been fantastic and this issue in particular was so damn emotional!
Rocket Raccoon and Groot #7 (Marvel)
NickZ: Can we get Skottie Young back?…STAT!
The Wicked + The Divine #21 (Image)
Arnab: Gods slaughtering gods. What could be better than that?
NickZ: This issue gets so balls the wall crazy that some Valkyries from into Voltron! I s*** you not!
Wonder Woman #2 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Rucka’s Year One origin story hits the right beats, but the real star is Nicola Scott’s beautiful art.
Wrath of the Eternal Warrior #9 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Another stellar chapter in and Gilad is not here to play!
