All-Star Batman #13 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Alfred is truly the star of this arc and if you’re not reading it you should be!
NickZ: Remind me never to piss off Alfred!

Angel #8 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: Fred and Angel tread some dangerous waters and end up in a volcano! Literally out of the frying pan and into the fire!

Animostiy #9 (AfterShock)
Infinite Speech: Once again Marguerite Bennett manages to make another member of the animal kingdom scary as hell but still puts a lot of heart into this story as well!

Bank Shot #3 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: An exciting revenge tale wrapped in great art and a tight narrative!

Black Panther #17 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Does this mean T’Challa and Storm are a thing again? So glad the action is also picking up in this series too!

Black Panther & the Crew #6 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Glad this is over. Hopefully Misty Knight is never drawn this bad again.

Black Racer and Shilo Norman Special #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Always a good time for a Mister Miracle story!
Martin: 4/5 stars. Gives some warranted attention to some lesser-known Kirby creations, along with some fun Kirby back-ups.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #10 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: Xander as the Vice President was inspired!

Darkseid Special #1 (DC)
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. Probably the best of the DC Kirby specials. Great look at a resistance on Apokolips.

Deadly Class #30 (Image)
NickZ: Such a fantastic series! There is never a single wasted panel, you are always completely enthralled in these characters and their lives!

Deadpool #35 (Marvel)
NickZ: Too bad Deadpool can’t just blame his horrible acts on an “evil doppelganger” and be forgiven.

Destroyer #4 (BOOM!)
Infinite Speech: So many surprises in this issue and Akai finally meets Frankenstein’s Monster for one hell of a fight!

Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: I love who ended up being the Sorcerer Supreme of the future and who ended up being the new Doctor Doom!

Faith and the Future Force #2 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: This is the kind of series you tell your friends they should be reading if they aren’t!

Generations Hawkeye & Hawkeye #1 (Marvel)
NickZ: This is the best Generations book I’ve read so far! They totally nailed what makes Clint and Kate’s relationship special!

Infamous Iron Man #11 (Marvel)
NickZ: A series worthy of Doom’s brilliance! That final reveal was devilishly executed!

Jean Grey #6 (Marvel)
Arnab: This has surprisingly been an entertaining book, but the Phoenix needs to show up soon or this will get boring.
NickZ:
It is about time that someone enlighten young Jean to the truth and who better than her own grown-up self!

Justice League of America #13 (DC)
Infinite Speech: If this is supposed to be fun because it isn’t.
NickZ: Dr. Manhattan ruins everything, but lets face it this book was already pretty bad before he got involved.

Lady Killer 2 #5 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech: Joelle Jones just put out one of the best comics mini series that should be in your read pile!

Rapture #4 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech: Not sure if this is a redemption arc for Shadowman or just a lead in to something bigger.

Red Hood and the Outlaws Annual #1 (DC)
NickZ: This was a very cute story about Dick and Jason’s relationship through the years and Bizarro gets his first kiss!

Robotech #2 (Titan)
Infinite Speech: I think I’ve absorbed too much Robotech to enjoy this like I should be.

Saga #46 (Image)
Arnab: This book really knows how to knock the emotions right out of you.
NickZ:
Everything with Hazel and Kurti! I just cant! I’m in a glass case of emotion!

Secret Empire #10 (Marvel)
Arnab: Captain America is the worst.
Infinite Speech: Reminds of that time Clark Kent fought Superman in Superman III but with Captain America. Not a bad finish but it felt a bit incomplete.
NickZ: So Captain America does horrible things/kills a teammate while under the influence of a cosmic power and is immediately absolved of all wrong doing the moment he comes to his senses, but Cyclops does the same exact thing in Avengers vs X-Men and is labeled a villain and thrown in jail? WTF!?! #humanprivilege

Star Wars: Mace Windu #1 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: I was hoping for something pre Clone Wars but
we do get more Kit Fisto so I’m good.

Supergirl Annual #1 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Really great art, but the story is just a continuation of the regular comic – not worthy of an annual.

Uncanny Avengers #26 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Rogue needs to get over her issues with Scarlet Witch but this is still a really fun issue.
NickZ: The crux of the Scarlet Witch is that good or bad, no one that unstable should be allowed to wield so much power.

Wonder Woman #29 (DC)
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. So much to love here, from commentary on Wonder Woman’s looks to the art to the WW/Etta Candy friendship.

X-Men Blue #10 (Marvel)
Arnab: Beast’s stupidity knows no bounds. Truly, he is an idiot at all stages of life.
NickZ: Finally, Scott and Jean’s relationship is headed in the right direction! Love them or hate them you cannot deny that they are the core center of the X-Men.
