Action Comics #982 is a perfect issue that's filled with great character work, tons of action, and a fast pace that keeps up to the very end.

What an exceptional comic this is, particularly because it's so well balanced. The art tells so much in the simplest expression, the concept behind this book is compelling and the characters are extremely strong. If you're interested in psychological drama there won't be a better book on the shelf for you than this.

This is a fantastic issue that proves there aren't enough anthology comics. Take a chance on this one you won't be disappointed. If you're on a tight budget skip Spider-Man (or whatever you read) for just one week because this offers a lot more bang for your buck.

This is a very good issue indeed. The main 22 page feature is exceptional, the 6 shorts are fun and look amazing with the added bonus of giving you a taste of the new series that are being produced from them. The entire issue is a great introduction to a lot of elements and characters. Recommended.

Aquaman #5 is a pager turner. The creative team understands very well how to tell a visual story; it's issues like this that make me want to see a movie written by Dan Abnett.

Aquaman is a lot of fun. The action in this issue is fun to read and look at due to the sharp visuals and the story continues to impress. Aquaman doubters need only pick this title up and see he's the real deal.

Even if you're not following or a fan of the video game these are solid early adventure stories for both Harley and Batgirl. They're both fantastic and feel like they belong in the Batman: The Animated Series. Plus it's a one-shot so it's done in one fun!

I was a huge fan of X-Files which is maybe why I love this so much. It's like that show, but it reveals everything at a breakneck pace, never keeping you in the dark unless it's necessary for the narrative.

This comic is slowly revealing its hand and in doing so reads in a poetic and extremely dramatic way. It pays off for readers who want complexity in their comics and it's incredibly exciting since this isn't seen every day. If the creators behind this book can stick the landing and deliver a climax we can only dream of this might go down as one of the best works of superhero fiction in some time.

Venditti and Sandoval prove this is the primo Green Lantern book–nay, the primo space comic at DC Comics. The way in which this issue breaks up between sub-stories keeps things interesting and it looks damn good doing it. This is superheroes and space done right in every sense of the word.

When compared to last issue there's a lot more exposition here (largely because the protagonists do need to get from point A to point B) but there's still plenty of action to speak of. Basically the gear is lowered so that the next issue will completely explode. To get the characters from A to B, Mooney incorporates a game of chicken between submarines, some Nazi neck snapping and a very big twist you might not be expecting. I call that a win even if the action slows a bit. 10Well told story through and throughLooks great, reads greatI mean, there could be more pages?

And at $2.99 this issue took me forever to read, especially when compared to the leading Marvel and DC comic books. I finished the last issue loving how much content there was, but not feeling the story. This issue dispelled all of those problems by fleshing out the characters and delivering surprises that'll make you laugh and cry out in shock. It's typical for the second issue in a series to get bogged down on plot, but not so here. If anything it was the first issue that was bogged down. There's just so much to love in this issue and I can't help but get excited for what is instore for each character in the upcoming issues.

It's fascinating to read a prequel to the Dark Knight Returns in large part because we're seeing a closer version to the Batman we know from the main comics. This book succeeds at showing us how that version could ever become the older and much more brutal version in The Dark Knight Returns, but also the big mistake he'll never live down. Joker steals the show, but it's how Batman deals with Robin that you don't want to miss.

And it's all ending next issue! Say it ain't so! Let's call a spade a spade. This comic isn't action packed or filled with explosions. It's a crime comic plain and simple, but it's paced impeccably, the art is always interesting and there's a strong development on all friends every single issue. It'll be sad to see this book go, but maybe it'll get an ongoing if we're lucky. If not, but Nitz and Smallwood have shown they are future powerhouses in the comic book industry.

What a great issue that seems to have come out of nowhere. The last two Venom centric issues were short and quick reads, but this has so much going for it it makes up for the slowness prior. To see SpOck under the Venom spell is intriguing and he's creating waves rather quickly by burning bridges with Aunt May and Mary Jane. The monster that is Venom is used to show the monster that Peter has become and it's a thrilling thing.

The narration keeps things flowing nicely too. Basically the pace is perfect, cutting between events in Parasite's life, revealing interesting details of his creation, and touching on how he's basically an addict for energy. By story's end you'll wish the guy got help more than punishment. It's pretty clear Kudor went hog wild with the layouts too, as they're always progressing the story, looking interesting and are at times straight up compelling. There's one page in particular where as Parasite is falling to his death, he recounts snapshot, single-panel events that lead him from average monster to villainous creton. It's an exciting bit of comic book artistry, partly because it's reminiscent of a roll of film, but also because it's an efficient way to recount events.

There is the issue of pacing though, as there are points in this issue where things slow down with heavy dialogue and exposition. Obviously a balance can't always be perfectly struck, but there are pages where it felt like an info dump which killed the breakneck speed of the issue prior. It catches up quickly after these moments though, so not too much harm in them.

This is turning out to be a great delight for those of you frustrated with that experience. Gage and Foreman are delivering an effective and believable take on the good guy going bad story.

There's a moment in this issue where a character suggests God isn't God, but an actor and this is all a movie pitch. A character replies, “personally I love it, but it could never be made into a movie. A book sure, but not a movie.” One wonders if that was the goal, but was instead made into this very comic. A nice balance if you think about it, because comics tend to be a format between books and movies. Go read this great comic!

It's a little early to be demanding more characterization from Angela, but it is worth saying she doesn't do much beyond sneer and fight in this issue.

Even though the team is broken up, we get a bit of everyone in this issue, and Rocket is once again hilarious and fun. I'm holding out hope Angela gets more to do in the next issue, as it's an intriguing idea to thrust her into the Marvel U, and I know I'm not alone when I say I want to see more from this character besides a Hulk-Smash fill in.

There are subtle touches at play here that, I think, will payoff once this series is over. Reading it in the single issue format will be a treat like any serial is, but I can't help but be envious of anyone out there who will discover this series once it's finished. Take for instance the costumes of the old heroes as opposed to the young. The younger ones are dressed as heroes are today, in highly revealing sexy stuff, while the older heroes seem to be from the Golden Age of comics. Little things like this, that aren't even pointed out by the characters, add dividends to this series.

I went into this comic having no idea what to expect, but ended up being completely sold on the concept, story and heroes within. I'm intrigued by the potential danger these heroes must overcome, especially since they're all very much human. So often comics jam as much information as they can into the first issue to setup the wild ride ahead which typically means a lot of exposition heavy, pace slogging pages to get through. This comic however, has a ton of information passed on to the reader, all very naturally and well paced.

View Issue       View Full Review

The art by Marc Laming continues to be a solid rock in this work, always well rendered and grounded. There's a lot of talking in this comic, but you won't even notice because he has a way of giving us a good balance of mid level-shots and closeups to keep us focused on the emotions and events as they transpire. Books like this require a deft hand in that regard or they'll become less comic and more novel, which kills the pace and creates a boring vacuum you can't escape.

Steven Horton and Stephen Thompson are delivering an emotionally charged, but fun series that is rife with surprises. The world is so vivid and the characters so interesting I wouldn't be surprised if this were picked up as a TV show.

Aside from this being mostly action, it's a fine conclusion to a series you won't want to end. There's hope yet, though–Savage will return based on a teaser to end this book. When it does, I'll be first in line to read it.

An even better introductory issue than the last, although because of this those of us who read #1 might feel a bit slighted as it retreads much of its story. All in all though, a wonderfully paced issue.

A introduction to a hero, a call to action and a crisis all in the first book. There's a lot to chew on despite the fact that we barely even get to meet the hero before the issue's over! Recommended.

This is an exceptional introductory issue with plenty to keep your interest. There's humor, potential romance afoot and the main character is incredibly likeable. It's also made very clear how this character is different from the Spidey we know and love which is incredibly important.

Even after reviewing Amazing Spider-Man this week, I can safely say this is the best Spidey book on the stands today. The art is top notch and the characters are all so good, gosh darnit, I want to be right there in the comic so I can hang with the bunch of them!

This is fun tie-in that doesn't necessarily tie-in too closely, at least so far, but instead works on the characters. Spider-Gwen fans should go gaga for this one.

What a surprise this issue was, particularly because I fell out of love with the series. I adored the first three issues, but it slowly lost touch with me. This issue brings some tantalizing character dynamics to the forefront, but also teases us with some rather interesting reveals as well. The art by Kelly is serviceable to great throughout and it appears Wood has an impressive amount of tidbits for us in the coming issues.

It's not everyday you get a fresh story in the Star Wars universe. More times than not we get another rehash Boba Fett story, or some Jedi story with a couple different pieces added in to make it fresh. This story however, reads and feels as fresh as they come.

Overall a great series with some pacing issues here and there. This issue delivers all the answers you'd want and comes complete with a very well rendered moment between Darth and the Emperor. The art has always been of a bombastic nature with great lighting and pace too.

It's hard to resist reading Doctor Aphra due to its important connections to the Star Wars canon, but also its sense of adventure. It may lack the relationship development required to understand Aphra and her dad, but it's a lot of fun. This is Indiana Jones meets Star Wars, and fans shouldn't miss it.

View Issue       View Full Review

As we near the finale it's clear Doctor Aphra has carved an important place in the Star Wars canon. The premise of the book–discovering ancient relics–allows for great storytelling and the character is the right amount of originality to make her genuine and stand apart from the rest.

Everything is coming together nicely this issue. Those looking for the political side of things alluded to last issue shouldn't hold their breath, but I can't see that being an issue either. Essentially this issue gets the band together as tensions build into the next issue. Considering we get a gnarly looking alien beastie and a full throttle script I don't see how you could complain either way.

Yes indeedy. There's not a lot bad with this issue with a progression of story and a building towards climax that's delectable. So often comics build to a climax by cheapening the moments prior, leaving loose ends annoyingly open, but here the story is moving nicely and the calm before the story is incredibly enjoyable.

Once again I've been pulled into this monthly story and I don't want to ever leave. The single issues keep the tension up, the characters interesting and the story always moving forward. When this book is collected you'll be in for a treat, but do yourself a favor and get in on it now. It's worth it.

This is turning out to be a solid story on many levels. It has a cool connection to a classic comic that started the industry and inspired millions. Oh and it's got a very powerful thread to humanity through its character. Read it.
