Action Comics #974 (DC)
NickZ: For the first time this book failed to juggle having so many things going on in one issue. Also, “Clark” went from nice guy to super creep in seconds!

Batgirl #8 (DC)
NickZ: Batgirl spying on Barbara’s potential love interest is definitely something she learned from Batman.

The Beauty #12 (Image)
NickZ: This book is fantastic, I absolutely love it! Haun and Hurley made a one-off story that is better than entire arcs of other books!
Black Panther #11 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Shuri has become something else entirely and has stolen the show since her return

Champions #1.MU (Marvel)

At first I thought this was going to be a shit, throwaway tie-in, but it actually turned out to be decent.
This could have easily been a throwaway issue but they actually continued with the character and team building that’s been going on in the main issues.
Deadpool the Duck #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: A pretty unexpected revelation and the real mastermind behind this is finally revealed!

Deathstroke #13 (DC)

Infinite Speech: I guess the “death stroke” IS the best stroke. Priest took it there and you should be reading this!
Descender #19 (Image)
Arnab: If you’re not reading this book, you’re missing out on one of the best comic books out right now.
NickZ: I am so emotionally invested in these robots that i audibly yelled at Andy at one point in this story.
Detective Comics #951 (DC)
Arnab: Orphan is fucking amazing.
NickZ: Man, Tynion doesn’t give Gotham or the Bat-Family a single second of rest before the next calamity!
Extraordinary X-Men #19 (Marvel)
NickZ: Definitely a throwaway issue. I’m not even sure which battle was taking place here.
The Great Lakes Avengers #5 (Marvel)
Poor Bertha getting violated like that! I hope she makes them pay!
Infamous Iron Man #5 (Marvel)
What a tangled web this book has weaved. It’s so very good!
Inhumans vs X-Men #5 (Marvel)
Arnab: Ten bucks says this ends with them bottling up the mist like the ungrateful, selfish Inhumans should have done in the first place.
Things are moving very quickly into the climax and I have absolutely no clue how it is going to end.

Divinity III: Stalinverse #3 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: This is how you do a comic book event that pays off with every issue!

Flash #17 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Williamson wraps everything up even better than it started & he’s backed by a solid art team here!

Highlander: The American Dream #1 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: Glad to have these characters back and hopefully it gets better from here.

Jim Henson’s The Power of the Dark Crystal #1 (Archaia)
Infinite Speech: No FizzGig in this issue but the official sequel to the classic movie is still definitely worth picking up!

Joyride #10 (Boom!)
NickZ: Damn! Dewydd has become a little bad ass! I love the mix of action and heart in this book!
Justice League of America #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: I see that he’s necessary for now but I hope Batman leaves soon.
NickZ: I had high hopes for this book but this first issue was sub par at best.

Mosaic #5 (Marvel)

Infinite Speech: A very strong ending to the first arc and I’m willing to stick around and see where it goes from here.
Occupy Avengers #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: I love the idea of Hawkeye assembling this grassroots Avengers team with these lesser known characters.
Outcast #25 (Image)
NickZ: HOLY CRAP!! This issue was insane from start to finish! I think Kyle just found his Yoda! Or is it his Darth Vader?
Over the Garden Wall #11 (Boom!)
NickZ: The quest for Hero Frog is literally longer than the trip to Mordor in the Lord of the Rings!

Rough Riders: Riders of the Storm #1 (AfterShock)
Infinite Speech: Glass and Ollie get the crew back together and it’s so good to have ’em back!

Teen Titans #5 (DC)
Infinite Speech: This issue was a nice wrap up that shapes the new team and reminds us that Batman is a subpar father.
NickZ: This was a great arc to reestablish the Teen Titans with Damian in charge. Also, I love the “new” headquarters!

The Uncanny Avengers #20 (Marvel)
NickZ: Red Skull is so overpowered in this book, I just can’t get over it.
Infinite Speech: Some things still annoy me about Red Skull having Xaviers abilities. It’s mainly that Red Skull has Xavier’s abilities and wields them like a master telepath.

    A Highlander and Dark Crystal comic is out? Talk about oldies lol It also looks like Inhumans Vs X-Men is another waste like the Avengers vs X-Men book.
