Adventure Time #3 (Kaboom!)
Dr. Bustos: This one concludes the Lich story but leaves us with a cliffhanger even bigger than the last one! The power of teamwork is quite amazing. A
Great adaption of the TV show! So lumping awesome and hilarious!!

America’s Got Powers #1 (Image)
Wildly entertaining first issue. In just one book Jonathan Ross and Bryan hitch have whipped up a fantastic superhero universe. A

Avenging Spider-Man #6 (Marvel)
NickZ: I love the dynamic between Spidey, Daredevil, and Punisher.

Batgirl #8 (DC)
Arnab: And the death toll continues rising. A-
NickZ: The best issue so far! The story with Danny ‘The Weasel” Weaver was so touching, plus all the Gordon family stuff was great too!

Batman and Robin #8 (DC)
Andy: Court of Owls is cool and all, but this is Batman at his rawest and most primal. A
Arnab: Nice little story after the roller coaster ride of terror tat was this past arc. A
NickZ: This story had some of the best Bruce and Damian moments ever. It really cut to the heart of what their relationship is about.

Batwoman #8 (DC)
Arnab: And I officially can’t stand Kate Kane. B
Dr. Bustos: I question the time changes a lot in this one, some are said to be months apart but people talk as if they just happened, lot of exposition in this. That arrowhead is a deus ex machina. C+

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9 #8 (Dark Horse)
NickZ: Season 9 is turning out to be even better than the last. The relationship between Buffy and Spike has never been better.

Deadpool #53 (Marvel)
Arnab: Deadpool may be featured in a bunch of books, but make no mistake, this is the best one. A
NickZ: Can’t wait to see how they are going to get ‘Pool out of this situation.

Fantastic Four #605
Arnab: Speaking as a reader that doesn’t particularly like the fantastic four, leaf of all the Thing, this was surprisingly touching and sad. A

Frankenstein: Agent of S.H.A.D.E. #8 (DC)
Dr. Bustos: This felt like the issue of Hellboy when he left the B.P.R.D. and it was depressing watching everything fall apart. B+

Legion Lost #8 (DC)
I found this issue enjoyable, even though I don’t normally read this book.

Mister Terrific #8 (DC)
Dr. Bustos: This is the end, I hope we get to see more of Michael Holt in other series, I guess I’ll have to check out Earth 2. B

The New Avengers #24 (Marvel)
NickZ: This was completely lame. Really should have come out before A vs. X.

Peter Panzerfaust #3 (Image)
Arnab: This my dear readers is the way to take a popular story and give it a new twist in the most brilliant manner.

Saga #2 (Image)
Following an amazing first issue, Vaughn and Staples do not miss a single beat with this intergalactic, sci-fi epic story.
Dr. Bustos:
This was a great follow up with some truly terrifying imagery. I’m finding all the characters interesting and the magic in this is fun to watch happen. A+
Vaughn and Staples have now proven that you can surprise fans of sci-fi and fantasy with new ideas, neck-break plot twists, and precision artwork. It’s not too late to jump onto the best comic on the stands.  A+
NickZ: This book is all kinds of awesome. They are building a great new world.

Scarlet Spider #4 (Marvel)
NickZ: I can’t overstate how great this book is. Yost and Stegman are making comic book gold here. Don’t miss it!

Secret Avengers #25 (Marvel)
Jeff: Who knew the original Human Torch was going to play such an important role in this? A
Lots of good stuff going on in this issue from Master Mold to Human Torch to the great stuff set up for future issues.

Superboy #8 (DC)
Arnab: Time after time Superboy proves that he may be just weeks old, but he’ll kick your ass anyway. B
NickZ: It’s cool that Superboy had to think of using his power in a new way to win his battle. Harvest is super creepy looking!

Uncanny X-Men #10 (Marvel)
It turns out that Captain America is a big old douchebag, but we knew that. #mutanthater A
Unit may get my “rookie-villain-of-the-year” award! B
So much great stuff happening in this issue. Way better than Wolverine and the X-Men! FACT!

Wolverine #304 (Marvel)
Ok, Jason Aaron, I’m starting to think you’re not really leaving this book. B-
NickZ: A nice little epilogue to Jason Aaron’s run on this book. I only wish the art was better!
