Action Comics #18 (DC)
NickZ: I have no words for how bad this is.

Adventure Time #14 (Boom!Studios)
NickZ: A boy, his magic dog, and a vampire queen must defeat a virus from inside of a video game. What more could you want?

All-New X-Men #9 (Marvel)
Arnab: Was Jean this annoying the first time around? And will someone put a sock in Kitty already? A
Infinite Speech: Fun Freakin’ Tastic!! Bendis even throws the Marvel Zombies in here and it WORKS!
Jeff: It’s been a long time since we saw a Danger Room sequence. I didn’t realize how much I missed those.

Artifacts #26 (Top Cow)
Infinite Speech:
Why do I think that Marz just really screwed the good guys on this one! It’s gonna be an awesome ride!

Avatar: The Last Airbender – The Search Pt 1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech:
This continues to show that a great animated series can also make the transition to an even greater comic! Nothing is lost here!

Avengers #8 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech:
This just isn’t for me.

Birds of Prey #18 (DC)
NickZ: Mr. Freeze comes for Strix and his revenge on the Court of Owls.

Cable & X-Force #6 (Marvel)
Arnab: Love this book. That’s all. A
Infinite Speech: Larroca’s artwork makes me tolerate a book with Forge in it.
Jeff: This book is really coming together. Adding Boom Boom is a treat! I never thought I’d say that!
NickZ: This book is really starting to feel more like the original X-Force series.

Catwoman #18 (DC)
Arnab: What kind of world do we live in where Selina Kyle can’t say, “I’m sorry your son died.”? Fuck you DCnU. B-
NickZ: I definitely liked Bruce and Selina’s relationship pre-new 52 than I do now.

Chew #32 (Image)
Arnab: If you’re not reading this book, you’re not cool. Fact. If you start reading this book, you’ll get cooler. Fact. A
Jeff: The way Guillory does Colby’s realization of Caesar’s connection to Savoy was hilarious and perfectly rendered.
NickZ: Pound for pound one of the most entertaining books out there. The easter eggs alone are so numerous and hilarious!

Deadpool #6 (Marvel)
Arnab: I don’t really understand why none of Deadpool’s other voices make an appearance in this series. A-
NickZ: Deadpool finally puts an end to the zombie presidents, but his problems are just beginning.

Fanboys vs. Zombies #12 (Boom! Studios)
Arnab: This is and always has been, good ol’ fashion comic book fun. It’s humorous, entertaining, the art is fantastic, really, what more could you want? A

Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #10 (Dynamite)
Infinite Speech:
Ming releases the bore worms, a lot of people get killed and Hitler gets knocked on his ass! What more could you ask for?!

Indestructible Hulk #5 (Marvel)
Jeff: I felt like this story didn’t pay off at all. I wonder if Waid had intended it to be longer.

Invincible #101 (Image)
NickZ: Another great Image title that is worth every penny. Even when it’s short on action, it still manages to be highly entertaining!

Justice League #18 (DC)
Infinite Speech:
This was a weak recruitment issue but once again the Shazam back up story saved the day.
NickZ: The League expands membership. I reduce my interest.

Justice League of America #2 (DC)
Infinite Speech:
Hawkman and Vibe’s interaction at the table was HILARIOUS! Looks like this will be my Justice League book of choice here!
NickZ: Two issues in and this book is already way better than the “flagship” Justice League book.

New Avengers #4 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Same writer but this is way better than Avengers. Must be the team in this title!
Jeff: I don’t like the way Epting draws the Beast.

Nightwing #18 (DC)
Arnab: Poor Dick. A
NickZ: Nightwing must deal with the fallout of “Death of the Family” and the death of his “brother” and really the death of his parents. Sucks to be him right now.

Nova #2 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: So much fun!
Jeff: Ed McGuinness is one of the finest comic book artists working today. I love his work.

The Private Eye #1 (Panel Syndicate)
Jeff: I wholeheartedly believe that this format is the future of digital comics. Way to go BKV and Martin!

Red Hood & the Outlaws #18 (DC)
Arnab:
Finally! It’s been years since Jason’s been alive, I’m glad they’ve resolved him dying. Great issue. A
Infinite Speech:
This title is a hidden gem among all the extremely overhyped garbage DC is putting out.
NickZ: What an emotional issue! Bruce and Jason… I just can’t…

Saga #11 (Image)
Arnab: So much good in this story. And Fiona Staples draws one of the sexiest men in comics. A
Infinite Speech: This is officially the Bruce Lee of comics!
Jeff: Lying Cat is OK! But someone else isn’t.
NickZ: This issue clenches it, Saga is nothing less than a masterpiece.

Savage Wolverine #3 (Marvel)
Jeff: I’m starting to really enjoy this story. The more Logan and Shanna team-up, the more I like it.
NickZ: Just grateful this book isn’t about Wolverine’s past, Sabretooth, or ninjas.

Star Wars: Legacy Vol 2 #1 (Dark Horse)
Infinite Speech:
Just like her grandfather (I’m guessing) Ania Solo shoots first!

Superior Spider-Man #6 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Note to all bullies: Be careful who you mess with because that guy could get Spider-Man’s powers and kick your ass when he grows up!
Jeff: Ah…Humberto Ramos is back. I can enjoy this title again.
NickZ: Octo-Spidey is really going off the deep end and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

Supergirl #18 (DC)
NickZ: Supergirl is having weird issues with her powers and it’s some how connected to Power Girl and zzz…

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #20 (IDW)
Arnab:
Usually I don’t like when sci-fi fun comes into my generally non-sci-fi world, but this was shell-tastic (which is turtle for fan-fucking-tastic.) A
Infinite Speech:
Off planet fun but I can’t wait for these guys to get back to Earth and kick some shell!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Secret History of the Foot Clan #4 (IDW)
Arnab:
Hot damn diggity! These TMNT guys are rocking it all. A
Infinite Speech:
One of the best mini series to come out this year and takes the TMNT mythos to a whole new level!

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #21 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: One of Ganke’s funny shirts really would have lightened the mood in this great issue.
Jeff: I love that MJ and Gwen are still in this book.

Wolverine Max #5 (Marvel)
NickZ: A book about Wolverine’s past, Sabretooth, and ninjas. How original.

Wonder Woman #18 (DC)
NickZ: The fate of Zola’s baby is finally resolved (for now) and not by someone you would’ve expected.

X-Factor #253 (Marvel)
Arnab: Is there a time limit on Darwin’s powers? Couldn’t he just, do away with the hellgods like he did Hela that one time?
Jeff: I’m ready for this storyline to be over.
NickZ: X-Factor is just a tad bit out of their league with these Hell Gods/Demons.

X-O Manowar #11 (Valiant)
Infinite Speech:
Destruction, violence, and some serious ass kicking here!

X-Termination #1 (Marvel)
Jeff: Why doesn’t Wolverine just let Nightcrawler go back to the AoA?
NickZ: Can three teams of reject X-Men prevent the end of all universes?
