3 Floyds: Alpha King #3

Dec 15, 2016

All in all, Alpha King #3 is consistent with the series' humor and art style, and should suit fans just fine. If you haven't enjoyed previous issues, there's not a lot here to change your mind.

Deathstroke (2016) #10

Jan 11, 2017

Heading into a new arc, things should pick up quite a bit for the family that slays together. For now, though, issue 10 is a bit of a dud.

G.I. Joe (2016) #1

Dec 29, 2016

Still, G.I. Joe books are rarely geared at the casual fan, and those who've followed the most recent series of IDW's "Crown Jewel of the Hasbro Universe" should be able to get in to this. Hopefully the following issues remain character-centric and don't get mired in the lore of a universe shared with the likes of The Transformers and He-Man.

Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon #1

Dec 20, 2016

Still, nitpicking aside, the Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon does show some promise. Most readers will come away from the first issue with theories as to the true identity of the Demon, as well as the Swashbuckler, which is a good hook to start a series from. Hopefully the rest of the series will learn from a handful of stumbles in the first issue and pick up steam moving forward.

Justice League (2016) #12

Jan 4, 2017

In the end, Justice League #12 is a great tie-in (prequel really) to the Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad series. If anything, it shows that I'd prefer this creative team be handling the book.

Justice League (2016) #13

Jan 18, 2017

This issue could potentially have made things work for a troubled crossover, but it instead leaves a lot to be desired. There's little getting around the fact that – despite the carnage wrought throughout – this feels like a throwaway issue that won't have much impact on anything long term.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #1

Dec 20, 2016

Overall the book is off to a bit of a rocky start. Hopefully the creative team will discover their voice and take the story in a unique direction. Otherwise this series will just be yet another directionless superhero punch up between two popular teams.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #2

Dec 28, 2016

Overall Justice League Vs. Suicide Squad #2 is a flawed book. The art has its moments, but curious scripting and weak dialogue prevent the book from really getting out of first gear.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #3

Jan 4, 2017

Still, now that the actual action of the story is set in motion (and the thin pretext needed to get the two super teams to work together has already been established) things are progressing in a decent enough direction. Hopefully things will pick up after the slow start.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #4

Jan 11, 2017

Still, overall this is a decent outing for the book, with character moments (Deadshot's "Damn Batman" is particularly great), story progression and consistent artwork. It's a shame it took this many issues to get there, but finally the book is hitting it's stride.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #5

Jan 18, 2017

This, the penultimate issue of a series that's struggled to find its footing, is a backslide from the highs of Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #4. We'll see if they can go out on a high note or it'll all end in disappointment.

Red Sonja (2017) #0

Dec 13, 2016

Still there's enough promise in this brief issue to give the series a shot, as it'll be interesting to see how this creative team handles it when they get to stretch their legs.

The Fall and Rise of Captain Atom #1

Jan 4, 2017

All in all, this is a strong opening shot for this book, providing readers with great art, a compelling story and a mystery creating final scene that will bring readers back for more.

Thunderbolts (2016) #8

Dec 28, 2016

Thunderbolts #8 moves at a decent clip and provides a decent jaunt to get us back to the status quo of Bucky leading the T.Bolts all while giving Songbird (and to a lesser degree Atlas) a chance to shine.

Uncanny Avengers (2015) #18

Dec 28, 2016

Still, the issue stands out on the rack, creating realistic danger for our heroes, strong action pieces to set the tone for next chapter, and a menacing villain that seems all but unstoppable by the end of the issue. It's everything you want from an Avengers book!

Uncanny Avengers (2015) #19

Jan 11, 2017

Uncanny Avengers continues to be a bright spot in the Marvel landscape – ironic because the story has been a bit of a downer. Still, you have to set dire stakes to earn a meaningful payoff, and Gerry Duggan is doing a great job of getting readers excited to see what happens next.
