Adventure Time #70 (Boom!)
NickZ: TFW you get to the issue of Adventure Time that is no longer drawn by Ian McGinty 🙁

Astonishing X-Men #5 (Marvel)
NickZ: Death has made Xavier even more of an ass than he was in life.

Batman #34 (DC)
Arnab: Dick and Damian? adorable, as usual. Bat and Cat? amazing together, as usual.
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. Some great moments with Damian, Dick, & Clark, but the main story with Batman, Catwoman, & Talia is too drawn out.
NickZ: I didn’t think it was possible for me to love Catwoman more than I did, but Tom King and Joelle Jones found a way to do it!

Batman the Devastator #1 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. I’ve liked most of the tie-ins to Metal’s overall story, but this 1 seems to “matter” more than others
NickZ: If not for Lois Lane, this would have been the worst Metal crossover book yet.

Batman White Knight #2 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. Some interesting interactions with Jack & Harleen in this issue, but the real selling point is the art.
NickZ: The way Murphy and Hollingsworth are playing on the Batman mythos for this story is brilliant!

Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands #1 (DC)
Infinite Speech: So Tobias Whale wasn’t the real Tobias Whale and the real Tobias Whale is ticked off! Black Lightning is cool in this too!

Darth Vader #7 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Charles Soule is writing a formidable Darth Vader and throwing in the Inquisitors is a nice touch. The Emperor is still a jerk.

Deathstroke #25 (DC)
Infinite Speech: Priest is writing a definitive Deathstroke series here and I hope you’re paying attention.

Destroyer #6 (BOOM!)
Infinite Speech: Damn! This was a kick in the feels of a mini series and the creative team should be damn proud of themselves for this!

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #245 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: A lot of story points going on but none of them really stood out. Even the ninja action was a tad boring.

Green Arrow #34 (DC)
Martin: 3.5/5 stars. What began as 1 of the stronger Rebirth books has lost some footing lately. Will Ollie’s trial ever start?

Green Lanterns #34 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. This is why I read this book. A combination of fun space action juxtaposed with real-world, mundane problems.

Guardians of the Galaxy #146 (Marvel)
NickZ: In typical Guardians fashion, this stint with the Nova Corps is off to a terrible start.

Iceman #7 (Marvel)
Arnab: A new town should do wonders for Bobby.
NickZ: Bobby has officially become “That Guy” who uproots his whole life and moves cross country after one good date!

Iron Fist #74 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: Who would have thought this Sabretooth and Iron Fist team up would be this good?

Justice League #32 (DC)
Martin: 4/5 stars. 1 of my fave Metal tie-ins so far. The combo of story & art really help explain how dire the situation is.
NickZ: Other than showing the traps the Batmen have set for the Justice League, this issue is mostly filler.

Lazarus x+66 #4 (Image)
Martin: 4.5/5 stars. This look at the 2 Lazari from the Nkosi & Meyers-Qasimi families is 1 of the best of the series so far.

Nightwing #32 (DC)
Arnab: I’m kinda done with Bludhaven. Get him back to Gotham or something.

No. 1 with a Bullet #1 (Image)
Martin: 4/5 stars. A very compelling main character (Nash Huang), a topical & interesting premise, and excellent, quirky art

Noble #6 (Lion Forge)
Infinite Speech: Astrid is the Snake Eyes of the Catalyst Prime Universe. Yes she is THAT DAMN COOL!

Paper Girls #17 (Image)
NickZ: There were so many twist and turns in this issue, I can’t wait to see what they do next!

Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #6 (Marvel)
NickZ: Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor!

ROM #14 (IDW)
Infinite Speech: This Wraith problem just keeps getting too much for ROM to handle and I want more Darby!

Shadow-Batman #2 (Dynamite)
Martin:4/5 stars. I wasn’t a fan of issue #1 & the inclusion of Damian, but things improve a lot this issue. Worth another look.

Spider-Man #234 (Marvel)
Infinite Speech: The identity of the new Iron Spider was a surprise and a damn good one at that! Now let’s hope it pays off in the end!

Superman #34 (DC)
Martin:4.5/5 stars. Lex Luthor’s portrayal is perfect this issue, and Lois Lane provides a surprise I did not see coming.
NickZ: Only Lois Lane could impress Granny Goodness enough to make her into one of her Female Furries.

The Walking Dead #173 (Image)
Arnab: Jesus is a BEAST.
NickZ: Jesus is a bad ass, never forget.
