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.
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.
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.
