Even if I tried, I don't think I'd find anything wrong with this issue.  Coming off a dark and dismal arc, it was so great to sit back and laugh out loud.  Greg Pak gave me a dream come true...a killer Bizarro story.  Aaron Kuder and the rest of the art team can retire now knowing that they can't possibly do anything better.  Well, maybe they can, but I don't care because this issue looks fantastic. If this is a sneak peek at what we are in store for come June, count me in big time.

I'll just end by saying that Airboy #1 is one of the most unique comic books I've ever read.  It is raw, profane, over-the-top and simply fantastic.  It will never be confused with all those all-ages comics that are being pushed nowadays and to that I raise a glass and would give a toast if i wasn't so awkward.  This is a must read!

It's funny how a book called Animal Man can be the best depiction of what it is to be human I've read in a long time.  Being the Father of Five Boys, I can only begin to imagine Buddy's loss.  I am  glad to be there with him as he slowly pulls himself up from rock bottom and begins the healing.  Whether or not you are a fan of Animal Man, buy this book.  If you don't know the difference between the Red and the Green, buy this book.  Trust me, it's worth every penny.

Batman #33 is one of the most satisfying comic books I've ever read.  Scott Snyder manages to tie everything up in a story filled with layer upon layer of greatness.  Greg Capullo's art is second to none and this arc just cements his place in the Bat Hall of Fame.  Zero Year is over and I'm not sure how Snyder and Capullo can top this masterpiece.

This issue is beautiful, brutal, bloody, exciting and important.  Important to Batman and the whole DC Universe.  I really shouldn't have to say anymore.  Just go and buy this issue, read it and have your mind blown.

This is my favorite issue of Rebirth so far.  It's also one of my favorite issues period and one of the best payoffs to an arc that I've ever read.  It's that good...trust me!  Highly Recommended.

Batman Beyond 2.0 #26 is a must read for any Batman Beyond fan.  Higgins and Siegel are writing what is quickly becoming a classic. Hester and Rousseau do there part with art that shows the myriad of emotions running through each character.  I really can't find anything wrong with this issue.  It's that good.  Highest Recommendation.

If you are a fan of the Batman Beyond cartoon and/or Batman: The Animated Series you owe it to yourself to read this series.  Start from the beginning, but when you get to this Mark of the Phantasm arc you will be blown away.  Higgins and Siegel are taking chances and it's paying off in a big way.  I really can't find anything wrong with this issue at all.  Just get it and thank me later.

I can't say enough about this issue, but especially the whole arc.  So much of it was jaw dropping and game changing. The Mark of the Phantasm story should go down as one of the best Batman Beyond stories of all time and seriously deserves to be made into an animated film immediately.  I applaud everyone involved and can't wait to see how they even attempt to top this.

I usually don't like side stories and I'm not a big fan of Tim Drake, so this issue should have fallen flat for me.  Oh boy, it didn't!  This issue was so great and I beg anyone who loves Tim Drake, Robin or a great story with awesome art to check it out.  Peter J. Tomasi may make a fan of Tim Drake out of me yet.

Black Hammer #1 is a great start to a series that I can't wait to keep reading.  Jeff Lemire has captured such a diverse bunch of genres and molded them into a comic that feels like something that came out ages ago, yet still feels totally fresh.  I may be going out on a limb here, but this feels like the start of a classic.

If you go into this issue looking for big scenes with heroes and villains beating each other up with the fate of the Universe in the balance, then you will be upset.  The main villain is only hinted at and the issue tugs at the heartstrings instead of hitting you over the head.  Geoff Johns gives us a checklist of how far DC Comics has strayed from it's own legacy, apologizes for it and then shows us how it will be better.  The heavy lifting seems to be left for the individual Rebirth issues starting in June, but the groundwork is laid out and if this issue's mission is to make us remember what we loved about DC Comics in the first place ...mission accomplished!

Wow, this little comic sure does set up a new landscape for the DCU come June.  This Free Comic Book Day joint gives us a new Batman, a new writer changing the status quo on Superman and a peek at the future of the Justice League.  Plus, it's FREE!  Go grab it at your local comic book store or any way you can get your hands on it.

Whoa, what an issue.  The Flash #23 had everything you could want in a comic.  Great action and fight scenes, check.  Awesome art and coloring? Yep.  A crazy reveal?  Oh yea.  A great cliff hanger that will make the two month wait for the next issue unbearable?  A huge YES.  Do yourself a favor and buy this book for yourself and any comic book fan you know.

If you are a Grayson fan, this is a must read.  Saying that seems silly because of course you are going to read it, but a reviewer has to say things like that.  This is more for the Grayson haters that are still out there...get off your soapboxes and get to the comic book store and buy this book.  Your silly protest has lasted long enough and you are missing out on one of the best books period.  When you finally catch up to this issue, remember how great I said it was because by then you will agree with me and will thank me. You're Welcome.

I was expecting an emotional return to Gotham, but I couldn't have imagined just how emotional it would be.  Seeing Dick reunite with the Bat Family was great, but Tom King goes even further by using it to set up the ongoing story that only looks to be better from here on out.  No filler here. With a great story and outstanding art, I can't really find anything wrong with this issue.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino have given fans an awesome Green Arrow and Futures End issue.  The way these two work together it just isn't fair to other creators.  They are so good and while it's sad this is their last issue, it's a great sendoff.  Highly Recommended.

Ultimately, our heroes prevailed and became better on their journey along the way.  The art was mind blowing especially the splash pages throughout this issue.  Seriously, they are truly poster worthy and I want them on my bedroom wall right now! Hey Pop, can you tell my girlfriend to let me do that? This story reached its end in such an organic and earned way that I have to give kudos to the entire team.  Thank you for putting out such a great throwback to mine and many other's childhoods. It was greatly appreciated.  Hey Eric, if you are reading...my score is just a gut feeling I have.  Trust the Gut!

Injustice: Year Two #2  continues what makes Injustice such a great series.  Great and varied characters combined with awesome art and a unique story make this my favorite comic book out right now.  Everyone needs to read this book right now.

Injustice: Year Two #24 has it's share of crazy action and death.  It sets up a dark Year Three and I can't wait.  However, the reason fans will love this issue is for the heartwarming and hopeful epilogue that will have them smiling (and maybe even crying) as they get to say goodbye.  Thanks again, Tom.

I have been a fan of JL 3000 from the start and this issue still blew me away.  I figured having Booster and Beetle would be fun and it is hilarious, but how DeMatteis and Giffen make it fit in the book is the best part.  Howard Porter's art is excellent and I can only beg people to start reading if they aren't already.  Believe me, the begging is a selfish gesture...I want this story to continue.

Justice League Beyond 2.0 #24 is a great end to a great event to a great series.  Christos Gage and Dexter Soy have given us so much and I've loved everything.  Thanks guys and I hope you get back to the Justice League Beyond Universe sometime soon.

Call it a clich, but I really can't wait until next month. This book is so good. The story is confusing as hell but also intriguing as hell. I only wish DC had this book so it could come out twice a month. I say it every month, but you really need to pick this up.

This book may not be for everyone. Some people might not like the fact that the story isn't getting any clearer and more questions keep getting raised. Some people might not like the art style. Some might hate the long-form story that doesn't have natural arcs. I am definitely not one of those people. I love everything that I just mentioned. My only complaint is that one issue a month isn't enough for me. I want more.

This is one of the most satisfying comics I've read in a long, long time.  Every single DC fan upset with the current state of Superman affairs needs to read this issue and series right away to know that it can be better.  This book isn't just better, it's damn near perfect!

I could go on and on about how you should buy this book if you like this or that, but really, you should buy it because it kicks total ass!  It's Sci-Fi Adventure hilarity with characters that are so fleshed out that you will think of them as friends.  The story and art are beyond good and while I hate to recommend things for fear of retaliation, I give this entire series a huge thumbs up.  If you like cute little animals and babies, you should buy it.  If not, you are a monster!

I love this book and if you aren't reading it right now, I cannot recommend highly enough that you should go to your local comic book shop and catch up on the series (or maybe at least wait for the first trade). We get dark and gritty situations that have been given some dark humor to really give the reader something unique from most comics out there. This issue in particular may have focused more on the fun side of this comic, but it's still a joy to read as the art, dialogue, and storytelling remain at the top of the game.

If you have been reading this series just waiting until Diana becomes Wonder Woman, the time has come. She has pretty much announced herself to the world and Etta Candy is there to lend a helping hand, a needle and thread and impeccable taste! This chapter was so much fun and if it doesn't put a smile on your face, then I believe the Duke of Deception has already gotten to you.

How can I go on and on like this and not give this chapter a perfect score?  The answer is, I can't. The story and art combined into one of the best reads I've had since...well, probably the last time I gave this book a perfect score.  Listen, I'm a miserable man who loves to nitpick during my reviews and while I tried, I really couldn't find anything wrong with this chapter.

I know that we are a DC Comics centric site, but I will now lie to any of you...The Paybacks is my favorite comic book.  I loved the first run from Dark Horse, but Eliot Rahal, Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw have returned (thanks to Heavy Metal) with a vengeance and everything feels new, exciting and awesome!  I rarely tell people to go out and buy a comic just because I happen to like it, but I beg you to go out right now and get this issue...even if it's just to ensure I get more issues!  Trust me, I am giving it the score it deserves.

I loved this issue and the series as a whole.  I'm sad to see it end, but wouldn't want it any other way.  If you are looking for a mature comic that is action packed, thought provoking and beautiful, pick up the whole series now.  You will not be disappointed.  Highly recommended.

If you haven't seen the movie yet you won't feel left out. Your provided with enough dialogue to get a feel for the characters. This is plenty of action and humor in this debut issue. The story even wraps up the arc in the debut issue. After reading you'll still feel like it's a cliffhanger only cause you want to continue on this journey with Wolfcop and his best buddy Willie right away.

Wonder Woman #35 was a great ending to a great story.  Azzerello and Chiang end their run in style with a story that is epic and heartfelt and just made me glad I was part of it from the beginning.  Thanks to both of them for such a great run.

Inherently, last issues are difficult to review because you want to try and provide everyone with a few thoughts while leaving the mystery open to those truly interested in seeing a story through to its conclusion. If you take away anything from this blurb at all it would be to buy this book. In today's comic landscape,  it's exceedingly rare, when reboots and relaunches rule the sales charts, for a superhero comic to have a coherent beginning, middle and end to a story. X-O Manowar has proven this tried and true formula of storytelling can produce top notch entertainment when given the time to grow. I want more like it.

Batman Zero Year has gone from "Why do we need this again?" to "I can't believe I ever got along without it!".  With nods to the past and new wrinkles to make it their own, Snyder and Capullo have fashioned a story that already stands with the best of them.  What's even better is that this is only the beginning. I can't wait until next month, but at least it gives me time to pour over this issue again and again.

Batman #25 is a great issue.  Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo continue the history lesson and it is fresh and exciting.  Gotham's future is dark, but this book's is so bright it's blinding.  A must read.

Last Month's Superman #1 was my best reviewed issue of the first month and I liked this one even better.  The only thing keeping it from a perfect score is that we don't get much of a Convergence ending.  We do get a heel of a Superman story filled with great characters and superb art.  Highly Recommended.

Regular series writer, Charles Soule, does a great job giving us two origin stories and a rebirth. Swamp Thing #23.1 is not only my favorite Villain's Month issue, but has made me a Charles Soule fan as well. Believe the hype, he is that good.  Swamp Thing has entered my pull list as long as he is at the helm.

Zod is a monster.  He says it himself.  He actually revels in it.  With Action Comics #23.2 Greg Pak shows what a writing monster he is.  He keeps the classic Zod story mostly in place and fills in new details that make Zod an even better villain than before.  This is by far my favorite Villains Month issue so far and maybe my favorite Action Comics title in the New 52.  Kneel before Pak!

Adventures of Superman #27 is a great end to a great arc.  Christos Gage and Eduardo Francisco have created one of the best Bizarro tales I have ever read.  The last panel shows Bizarro with a big smile on his face and I was doing the exact same thing...not the opposite. Highly Recommended.

Aquaman #25 was a great end to the Death of a King arc and a fitting end to Geoff Johns' run on Aquaman. No longer a joke, Johns leaves Aquaman in such a great place for future writer Jeff Parker to continue the story.  It's sad to see Geoff go, but Aquaman fans were certainly lucky to have him.

With Zero Year, Scott Snyder is not just giving us his personal take on the Batman origin, but making it fit in the New 52.  We are seeing the transition from Man to Bat in a way that fits the time frame and new continuity of the universe he inhabits.  But what makes it so grand are the little nods to the readers that love the old stories and the old continuity.  Snyder shows he wants to be known for his new stories, but loves and respects everything that came before him.  He is truly standing on the Shoulders of Giants and letting us see the new view he is creating.

It is no surprise that Batman #29 is good.  It is much more than that.  It is an awesome action comic and a great origin revamp for every Batman fan to enjoy.  Throw in some of the best art I have ever seen and you have a winner.  Like I said, with Snyder and Capullo that is no surprise.

This is a story I can get behind.  The action is so great and is a fanboys dream come true.  How can you go wrong with Batman versus the Justice League?  I hope we get to see the other members duke it out, but I think the story will be shifting to the main villain next month.  It's a bit of a shame, but I wouldn't blame anyone and I can't wait to see it either.

This the Court of the Owls story I've wanted since they were introduced.  We get to see the power of the Court through flashbacks that are each creepy and disturbing in their own unique way. The Court rules from the shadows and as Gotham crumbles we see they will always be there.  I hope this momentum carries over to Tynion's Talon because this is the story I've been hoping for for a long time.  This is a must read.

I loved this issue.  The big pull was supposed to be Lois and Clark together again and while it's great to see that, actually seeing Flashpoint Gotham was my favorite part.  Supes, Lois and Jimmy have their hands full and I can't wait to see how it ends next month.  Lee Week's art was great and him and Dan Jurgens have my early pick for best issue of the Event.

Grayson was already one of my favorite books on the shelf, but by giving us a peek at the bigger picture, Tim Seeley and Tom King have put it right on top.  Every Dick Grayson fan (and comic fans in general) should be reading this book.  Seeley and King know Dick and Mikel Janin's art is just plain great.

Green Arrow #24 is that rare comic that has it all.  The story is nonstop adventure and action and the art is breathtaking.  The book is made to be a jumping on point for the uninitiated and also has enough fan service to please long time fans.  Seriously, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

This issue is my favorite of the series so far.  Harley and Power Girl together are solid gold and mix in a space adventure that pokes fun at the competition and I'm all in.  Conner and Palmiotti pull no punches as they go for the jugular and the funny bone and score a direct hit on both.  If you like wacky, crazy fun that involves a giant Space Pizza then you should be reading this book.

Injustice: Gods Among Us #35 is another great chapter in a great run.  We finally get to see Batman and Superman square off and the wait has been worth it.  Everything rings true between them which makes the end result even more upsetting.  I seem to say it every week, but I can't wait until next issue.

This chapter is so great and I absolutely loved it. Sebela's story here really picked up after those two let down chapters and he kicks it right to 11. It's by far my favorite chapter yet. The art by Santucci is pretty good as well, with character's faces still looking off sometimes but not too jarring. Harley's toxic relationship with Joker is explored in more depth that I was really looking for and it's written so amazing here. The mystery of these parallel characters is still wide open and I can't wait for more revelations and the next chapter.

Tom Taylor has done the impossible by making me like Injustice even more.  The empahasis on the magical side of things and the increased humor has given new life to a book that was already great.  Bruno Redondo and Vicente Cifuentes' art is icing on the cake that is another super issue.  I can't see anyone reading this and not falling instantly in love with it.  It's that good.

This issue doesn't push the story forward on bit...and it was awesome.  Tom Taylor takes us back to when it all started and gives us an alternate view of what could have been.  It's so familiar and fresh all rolled up into one.  If you have been around since the beginning, you will love this issue.

If you are an Invader Zim fan, you should be reading this comic.  The gangs all here and Vasquez and Alexovich make sure they are just like you remember.  If you never watched the cartoon and always wanted to see what the buzz was about, this issue is a great jumping on point and should make you into an instant fan.  It's a great, all-ages comic that is fun. looks great and had me laughing the whole way through.  That doesn't happen often.

Smallville: Harbinger #4 wraps up the mini series in such a satisfying way.  Bryan Q.

Max Landis gives fans another great issue in a series that some seem to hate, but I can't stop loving. How could I not when I'm smiling like a big dummy the whole time I'm reading it? I'm still smiling! The story here is ridiculously hilarious on the surface, but that hides the fantastic way Landis is showing Clark make his way in the world. It's all laying the foundation of what it is to be Superman and I love seeing it happen first hand and without an instruction manual. Add Joelle Jones' art to the equation and I was hard pressed to find anything wrong with this issue. Just check your hate at the door and have fun like it's your birthday.

This is another great issue of Arkham Knight.  I love what Peter Tomasi is doing with the Suicide Squad, but it's what he gives us in regards to the Arkham Knight that makes this issue so special.  He fits so much character work in such a limited space and I am hungry for more.  Viktor Bogdanaovic's art is outstanding as usual and he easily handles every character thrown at him.  The book ends with the promise of a cool fight and I will be back next week to see it.  If you aren't reading this book yet, I'd jump on the trolley now because things are really starting to heat up.  Highly Recommended.

Brenden Fletcher is so good at breathing life into his characters that I even fell in love with the awful villain of this issue.  He scales back the story a bit and we get a Maeve origin and I couldn't be happier.  The art and story were top notch and the issue ends with Bo going from jilted ex lead singer to possible super villain.  Throw in a crazy white ninja saving the day and you got yourself a must read issue.  by the way, that's an order, not a description.

I loved this issue, but that's not surprising since this is my favorite book.  I mention that because when it was announced, I was a huge detractor.  I wanted Nightwing back, but now that this first arc is over, I will do whatever it takes to keep Grayson.  Maybe even mind control.

Grayson is my favorite comic book on the shelves today and this issue only solidifies that fact.  While we are given a huge cliffhanger on the continuing murder mystery setup last issue, we also get some information on Spyral and an awesome guest star...Lex Luthor.  The interaction between Dick and Lex was so great, I want a teamup book right now.  The story and art in this issue is top of the line and combine into a must read book for anyone who's a fan of comics.  I may be a fanboy and certainly sound like on in this blurb, but this book deserves all the attention it gets and more...much more.  Highly recommended.

I had so much fun reading this issue. Between the spot on humor and the pulse racing action is the continuation of the Spyral story that may not address Dick's recent doings, but who cares when it's this great. The only thing I didn't like here was a certain character being painted as a villain and I can look past that to smile at the spy/buddy cop homage that is Grayson #16.

Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino just don't know how to make a bad issue of Green Arrow.  This month they give us great action, dialogue and Emiko.  She is so good and is poised to be a breakout character.  I'm sad their run is coming to an end, but I'm so glad I was around to enjoy every bit of it.  Highly Recommended.

When a character that's only been around since 1975 is already on its eighth different ongoing series, it's usually not good news. That normally means that a lot of different things have been tried and none have caught on. But Jeff Lemire has taken a whole different approach to the character and is elevating Moon Knight beyond what anyone expected. If you're looking for a great new comic that seems to get better with every issue, you need to check out Moon Knight.

Greg Rucka uses Rebirth to change the rules of the game. Instead of giving us a new origin, he is exploring why their isn't a definitive version in the first place. It all goes to another level when we realize that Wonder Woman is stuck in it all and wants out. The art is great, but it's Greg Rucka's story and focus that have me so excited to read whatever he has in store for us.

I have been saying that this series is a dream come true for Batman and TMNT fans who ever dreamt of this crazy mashup becoming reality, but that might sell it short.  If you are looking for a comic with good guys fighting bad guys with everything on the line and want it all to be tons of fun...grab this series now.  The only thing keeping this issue from a perfect score is it still is just setting up the finale, but it still came damn close.  Damn close.

Batman: Eternal #14 is the best issue of the series so far.  It is a great story that ties up loose ends and shows this book is more than worthy of it's early promise and hype.  I can't wait to see what happens next.  Highly Recommended.

Batman: Eternal #21 has me excited about this book again.  James Tynion gives fans so much in this issue including a baddie that people have been begging for.  Jason Fabok's art is so good and combined with Tynion's great story make this the best in the series up until now. Highly Recommended.

There really isn't much wrong with this book.  Maybe you can fault it for not being completely new user friendly, but I still think new users can jump in and have a ball.  If you were a fan of Justice League 3000, trust me when I tell you, 3001 is already better and the cliffhanger promises so much more.  Just buy it and fall in love all over again.  Justice League 3000 is dead...Long live Justice League 3001!

Smallville: Alien #12 is a great ending to another great arc.  It ties up the story and sets up the future of the book so there isn't much more you could ask for.  The character development and great art make it one of the best books out there so do yourself a favor and read it.

Wonder Woman #32 continues the great run of Azzarello, Sudzuka and Chiang.  The Battle for Olympus is on and both sides are already reeling.  While this issue is not new user friendly, I beg you to read it.  This run is one of the best ever and it's ending soon.  Plus, it has Bondage Minotaur.  Enough said.

Marc Guggenheim's Tears for Krypton arc was very moving and emotional. Superman is often depicted as a solitary figure who faces the Universe's horrors alone. This story shows just how alone he can be. While we love to see Superman run faster than a speeding bullet and jump tall buildings in a single bound, this story made me want to see him spend time with his own people for once in his life. Sadly, it never seems to work out that way. Great story that I highly recommend reading.

All-Star Western #25 takes the fun of Jonah Hex in the Present, adds the mystical and throws in two of the coolest characters in the New 52 to create a great issue.  I was getting wary of Jonah just shooting his way through our time, but the addition of magic is brilliant.  Everything is so fun and fresh that everyone needs to read this book.

Not that I was on the fence to begin with, because the premise had already sold me, but I'm totally on board for this arc now. This was an excellent issue to setup the coming threat Spider-Man/Peter is going to be facing and I can't wait to see him mix it up with some of these classic characters. The art by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Cam Smith, and Marte Gracia is the perfect complement to any Spider-Man story. The team really puts together some beautifully fluid action sequences and really, I find it hard to look away from, but in a very good way. Dan Slott is on top of his game here and really has me intrigued where he's going to take this story going forward. This book was, in the words of Stan Lee, Excelsior!

Gabriel Soria finishes a hilarious two-parter in style. This issue was laugh-out-loud funny with a great story, awesome pop culture references and an underlying moral I can get behind.

Batman #27 continues the Zero Year story and this issue begins to lift the curtain on Snyder's master plan.

While it would be hard to top last issue's epic conclusion to Gotham's story, Tom King gets very close this week.  I love Gotham Girl and seeing her in such a bad place was gut wrenching, but only lead to a great moment where we see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Of course, that tunnel is going to lead Batman to some pretty bad places, but that's the fun of it all, right?  The story, characters and art (by Ivan Reis this week) are top of the class and this issue is just one more reason that Batman is my favorite Rebirth book.  Now, I have to go find my tissues.

While I was looking forward to this issue for a while, I was still afraid that I would be underwhelmed once it started.  That did not happen, my friends.  This issue was exciting, mysterious and intriguing.

This was a great issue of Arkham Knight and while every fan should agree, those Oracle fans out there are in for a special treat.  This issue feels like the beginning of a new direction for Gotham and everybody in it...heroes, villains and everyone else.  The story was great and ended with a cliffhanger that promises some big time action, but the art (especially John Rauch's colors) steal the show.  I loved this issue.

Leave your preconceived notions at the door, pay the cover charge and rock and roll.  This book is a winner and I hope that everyone gives it a shot because it looks to be the beginning of something special.  Brenden Fletcher takes Dinah into new territory, but doesn't forget her past.  That combined with Annie Wu's awesome art makes it easy to recommend this book to everyone out there.  Jump on now so you can brag that you were there at the beginning.

I would be satisfied with seeing the Black Canary band travel the country kicking ass on and off the stage, but Brenden Fletcher is giving us more.  We are seeing the band come together (again, on and off the stage) and Fletcher is dropping crazy reveal bombs left and right.  What we find out in this issue changes everything and I loved it.  Annie Wu and Lee Loughridge's art is like a tour poster come to ass kicking life and I can't recommend this issue and series enough.  By the way, Guns n' Roses were actually late to their gigs because Axl was a douche.

Frank Tieri has the bittersweet job of ending the Catwoman series and does it in style.  He doesn't rely on smoke and mirrors or forced emotions like some of the other finales we've been getting, but instead just tells a damn good story that ties perfectly into his overall arc and slips in a little origin while we aren't looking.  Pretty sneaky, sis.  The art was just as fantastic and while I am sad to see Catwoman zoom off into the sunset (actually, into the night), I'm glad that I was along for the ride.

I have been a fan of this entire arc and this finale only strengthens my opinion of it.  Venditti and Jensen wrap everything up and while Barry's life is a complete mess, I wouldn't want it any other way.  The action packed story is only topped by Brett Booth's great art and the book ends with a cliffhanger that will have Flash fans salivation until it picks up again in June.  That's a lot of saliva...I can't wait.

Injustice: Year Two #9 takes the buildup of the past few issues and runs with it.  With Year Two, Tom Taylor has shown he's not a one-trick pony by upping the characterization and story, but it's great to get back to the explosive action.  Of course, Bruno Redondo is there to make everything look great.  This issue is titled "Road to War", but after this,  the road got a lot shorter.  The War is on.

There's a ton to like in this issue overall for any comic fan. We're provided a bunch of answers to some of the titles lingering questions, left with a few more still to solve, and are treated with a new Spidey suit to drool over.  We also get killer art and action sequences drawn by McGuinness and his art team.  To top it off, we get an appearance of a classic and new villain from the past, one we're still guessing the identify of to boot. So yeah, Marvel, more of stories like this please!!!

This issue never had a dull moment for me and the pacing was just great. It was like watching a movie, the way we go from action to comedy and the panel layout was never distracting and never overdone. This was another solid issue and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good balance of action, comedy, and character development.

What can I say?  This is the best issue of Stormwatch in the New 52.  It is also the last.  Sterling Gates and Jeremy Roberts have returned the original team for safe keeping and  (hopefully) future use.  If Stormwatch returns, these two better be at the helm.  I just wish that return was next month.

Superman Unchained #4 continues Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's run as the best Superman book in the New 52.  This issue is action packed, mystery filled fun and excitement.  The storytelling and art combine to make this one special book indeed.  Must Read.

Superman Unchained #8 is another great chapter in Scott Snyder and Jim Lee's never on time series.  Because of the delays, this book seems to have slipped through the cracks, but believe me, it's still great.  I love Snyder's Superman and Lee's art is just awesome.  If you've fallen off the book (I really couldn't blame you), jump back on and finish the ride.  Hopefully we won't have to wait too long.

Superman/Wonder Woman #2 continues to impress.  Charles Soule is giving us a personal tale of two of Earth's most powerful Heroes.  Tony S. Daniel's art compliments both the story and it's main characters so well.  This is now become one of my top five books in the New 52.

Superman/Wonder Woman #3 is great.  This book has action, romance, humour and great art to boot.  Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel have given us an early Christmas present and I'd like to thank them for that.

Superman/Wonder Woman has become one of my favorite books in the New 52.  This issue again shows just how well Soule knows both characters and the repercussions of their relationship.  Daniel's outstanding art is icing on an already delicious cake.

Superman: Lois and Clark may only be three issues in, but it is already my favorite Superman book and may just be my favorite book, period.  It really is that good.  Dan Jurgens and Lee Weeks are giving fans the characters they want and deserve and while this series is still in the setup phase, this issue pushes things forward so well.  Everything that Superman wanted to avoid is happening and I can't wait to see how he gets himself and his family out of this brewing trouble.  Issue #4 can't come soon enough.  Highly recommended.

Swamp Thing: Futures End #1 really has nothing to do with the main Futures End story and in this case, I'm glad.  Charles Soule gives the readers a great story of what the Avatar of the Green can accomplish with five years of wanting and planning.  Jesus Saiz's art is the best he's done and the combination of everything makes a must read issue for fans.

Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman give us an almost one-shot that is full of nostalgia, awesome fighting and trash talking.  It all comes together into a fun time that is a must read for every Turtles fan, but also great for those just wanting to get a taste of what the hype is all about.  Highly Recommended.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time #1 is a great book to read if you want some unabashed fun and hilarity.  Everything is fun from Paul Allor's fast paced script to Ross Campbell's cartoony art.  Anyone with even the slightest interest in the Turtles needs to read this book.  Highly Recommended.

Eliot Rahal, Daniel Kibblesmith and Kendall Goode finish up this initial arc of The Doorman and if you are a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, good books, laughing...you need to pick up the whole series. I haven't made any bones about it, I love it and I want more!

This is a great first chapter of what is promised to be the definitive origin of Wonder Woman.  While that's a big statement, if the full series is as good, I'll have to agree with it.  Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon give the reader a great combination of story and art and I've already fallen in love with this book.  If you are a Wonder Woman fan, or a comic fan in general, give this first chapter a look see and I think you'll be hooked.

If you are a Wonder Woman fan then you should be ready this series already, but if you've been staying away for some reason, I have two words for you...Etta Candy!

This is one of those chapters that doesn't just transition into the next phase of the story of Wonder Woman, but lifts the veil from everything that's already happened. The cliffhanger is one of those "I don't know what's going to happen next" moments, but seriously, I don't know what's going to happen next and I can't wait to see how it all works out. If you have been reading this book since the beginning, this issue is for you.

While I am so happy this isn't the ending, Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon finish up their awesome first volume by tying things up and also giving fans huge hints and promises of what's to come.  It all makes the wait for the next bunch of stories easier and harder all at the same time.  I don't know if that makes any sense, but I do know that I love this book and beg and plead for everyone to at least give it a try.  I am not a guy who likes to put myself out on the limb much, but I will with this book because of the obvious care and love both De Liz and Dillon put into it.  Plus, it just kicks total butt!!!

The only thing I can say bad about this series and this issue in particular is that I want so much more. Thankfully, Heavy Metal is continuing it because it really feels like things are just heating up...probably because they are.  We finally see the mystery big bad and it just opens up a world of possibilities going forward.  I will be reviewing The Paybacks when it comes out this Summer and I can't wait!!!  If you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favor and grab the trade (it just came out), but remember, it's mine!

Overall, The Unwritten - Apocalypse #2 is a complex, dense and layered story. Mike Carey makes you work for your enjoyment, but it's worth the effort. It helps that Peter Gross' art is so good as well. I recommend this issue and series to anyone looking for a great story that isn't spoon fed to the reader.

The Unwritten - Apocalypse #4 ends the War Stories arc in grand fashion with great dialogue and characterizations. Mike Carey ties in old and new threads to make this a story that demands to be read. It's really that good. Peter Gross' gets to show his flair for expression and emotions that makes the combination of art and story seamless. Please read this book.

I find it difficult to sum up my love for this series into words. In the superhero medium of comics it's incredibly rare to find such a charming and fun original hero so this is something truly special and I have a blast every time this comic is released.   While some might argue that the character isn't wholly original, the argument being she's a knock off of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool, I would argue otherwise and tell anybody listening to keep reading because you're missing something on another level altogether.

The Vision has become the family horror movie I need Marvel to make.  It's rare to find a book you're able to enjoy month in and month out regardless of what the overall story in the issue tends to be.  I love how King keeps us in a constant state of alert and I just have no idea what to expect next. Kudos goes to the entire creative team for staying sharp issue after issue and never wasting a page, a moment, or a panel in this series so far.  My only complaint is I see issue 12 and the series ending way too soon.

This isn't a book you can jump into and fully enjoy. You need to read this from start to finish and appreciate the entire masterpiece to get the full effect of its utter creepiness. There continues to be little bad to say about Vision as it remains the title, from the All-New All-Different Marvel lineup, that deserves your attention the most. Tom King, Gabriel Hernandez Walta, and Jordie Bellaire have come together to craft the perfect twelve issue mini-series, so keep a spot on your bookshelf warm.  Vision and his family's journey ends next month and I can't wait for the undoubtedly heart breaking send off.

This first issue shows that Marc Andreyko knows his way around Wonder woman '77 and thus I can recommend to any of the shows fans.  Actually, with such a fun story and great art by Drew Johnson, I can't see anyone walking away disappointed. This book is yet another Digital First hit that I'm looking forward to seeing more of as quick as possible. Now if only I could get my donut bacon cheeseburger.

This book is quickly becoming my favorite Wonder Woman book out today.  I know it's a bit early to make such grandiose claims, but Marc Andreyko obviously loves the source material as much as a certain comic book reviewer.  Drew Johnson and Matt Haley make everything look great and I suggest that every Wonder Woman fan check this out.

This issue is such a great way to kick off the return of Wonder Woman '77.  We get the usually greatness of Marc Andreyko's continuation of the TV series with the added bonus of getting the introduction of Diana's greatest villain.  Drew Johnson's art is so good and there really isn't much I could find at fault here.  If you love Wonder Woman, grab this issue.

Wonder Woman #28 is great.  It's not user friendly, it's not easy in easy out.  It's a book that builds on every issue that came before it, but if you put in the work you will be rewarded with one of the best books in the New 52.  This issue is just another brick in the wall.  Highly recommended.

It's no mistake that Wonder Woman has been one of the New 52s shining lights.  Azzerello and Chiang are so good and everything they have given us in past issues is beginning to pay off.  if this is any indication of how their run will end, it will go down as the definitive Wonder Woman for years to come.  It is that good.

If you have already fallen in love with Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman, prepare to fall head over heels all over again.  If the Rebirth beginnings turned you away or you haven't even given it a try yet, this is the issue to make you see what us smart people have been saying all along...Greg Rucka is writing a great Wonder Woman book and everyone should be reading it.

If you love Wonder Woman than this issue is your invitation to celebrate what makes her great by a huge creative team that loves her just as much (or more) than you.  It's an oversized issue stuffed with stories and art and I'm sure that everyone will find plenty to love.  This isn't a history lesson for newcomers, but a true celebration of one of the best and most important characters ever created.

This is another great issue of Batman: Arkham Knight.  Peter J.

Batwing #26 is action packed goodness.  Part Kumite and part James Bond, I hope this issue gets the exposure it should to elevate it to the next level.  It really deserves a bigger audience and this issue is a great one to get it.  With DC really pushing gritty and dark, Batwing is a perfect title for those who still look for fun and action in their comics.

It's a shame that this book is ending so soon, but this issue makes it that much worse.  Dan Didio and Keith Giffen are just hitting their stride and fans finally get a clear direction of where the Forever People are heading.  We also get a large does of the Infinity Man, a Green Lantern Mecha Darkseid and Guy Gardner, oh my.  Tom Grummett and Daniel HDR make this the best looking issue of the series and I beg everyone who either bailed or avoided this book to give it a second look.  There's only three issues left, but it looks like it's going to be a hell of a ride.

After the three origin stories, we finally get to the heart of the matter, but if you expected the Justice League to just be handed to the reader, you would be dead wrong.  J.M. DeMatteis gets everyone (new readers included) up to speed and then presents us with a couple of intriguing mysteries while showing us that we are still a bit from seeing the Justice League.  Everything up until now has been all about character so I wouldn't expect anything different from this story.  Thony Silas' art is great as usual and I can't wait to read the next issue.  Highly recommended.

Donny Cates, Eliot Rahal and Geoff Shaw combine to give readers such a great satire of superhero comics, but this issue shows that they can do more than laugh and point at the status quo.  This issue can proudly sit alongside the Avengers and the Justice League as an equal even as it makes fun of them.  That's a winning combination and one that has me fired up to read the rest of the series asap.  If you are a fan of superhero comics, you'll love The Paybacks.  If you hate superhero comics, you may just love it more.

Batman: Futures End #1 is a special issue that fans of the current Batman need to read.  Ray Fawkes ties so much together and leaves so many stories to be told.  While it's not essential to the Futures End story and I was not a fan of Aco's art, I still loved every minute reading this comic.  At the end, Bruce says, "Gotham must always have a Batman" and you know what?  He's right.

In the press release for this issue, Valiant promised that this issue was an "All-New Jumping On Point" and they are not liars.  I came into this issue with a very limited knowledge of Bloodshot and his Universe, but by the end, I was a big fan.  Jeff Lemire may not ease you in more than throw you to the wolves, but everyone get thrown in equally.  The story is exciting and intriguing and it ends with the curtain being lifted enough to make it even better.  If you've been waiting to read Bloodshot Reborn, this is the issue to do so.

Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse #6 is my favorite issue so far.  Instead of crazy characters and action, Dan Abnett gives us the backstory of Sir Harold.  That's enough for me since Sir Harold is my breakout star of the book.  Stjepan Sejic is incredible and just makes this book that much better.

Since this book isn't heading into Rebirth (or is it?), Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis get to end things on their terms and while it's not as crazy as some of Giffen's other enders, fans of this series should get a kick out of it.  I'm not sure if this open-ended finale is a sign of what's to come or a plea for what could be, but I enjoyed seeing these wacky characters I fell in love with one last time.  To come up with the cheesiest thing I could think of to end it all...This book may not have fit easily into the New 52, but it sure fit where it counted...the hearts of it's fans.  Hey DC, I still want you to use the bit about Douchebag Superman on the TPB because I don't want people to see my sensitive side!

Sensation Comics #14 is a journey back to the Silver Age of Wonder Woman and it's a trip I'd glady take over and over.  Gilbert Hernandez gives readers one of the strongest renditions of Wonder woman I've ever seen and the story pits her (and Supergirl) against aliens that threaten her very reason for existence.  I'm guessing this will be a love-it or hate-it issue, but I'm in the love-it camp.  I'm glad I get one more issue next week.

Smallville: Chaos #8 gives the reader two great stories.  Lex is about to cause a crisis and Superman and Darkseid make a deal.  Both stories are great while the art for both is good.  Bryan Q. Miller usually gives the reader an "I can't wait until next week" cliffhanger, but this one goes deeper and may have far reaching implications.  I know I'll be reading when and if it does and so should everyone else.  Highly Recommended.

Smallville: Lantern #6 expands on the Smallville version of the Green Lantern mythos in a big way.  Bryan Q. Miller is slowly opening up the Universe to Superman and luckily, we are there for the ride.  Marcio Takara's art is dark and gritty like the story.  This mini is becoming epic.

If you have been turned off by the DC You Superman, pick up this book and fall in love all over again.  This is the Superman that we have been missing and Dan Jurgens throws in a great Lois Lane as an awesome bonus.  This book is about family and the destiny and what happens when those two things collide.  It's got action, humor and mystery and thanks to Lee Weeks, great art.  I can't recommend it enough.

Swamp Thing #29 may be the start of a new arc, but that doesn't mean it's a boring setup issue.  Charles Soule does set things up, but him and Jesus Saiz are so good, they make it a must read.  So, go read it now.

If you are a Wildstorm fan, this is a no brainer.  If you are someone with little to no knowledge of the Universe, I still think this is a no brainer.  This is a mature title that's smartly written and looks great and I can't recommend it enough!

Great Wonder Woman issues are becoming old hat, but don't let it lull you into thinking this is anything but awesome.  The Battle for Olympus is nearing the end and it looks like Wonder woman and friends need a miracle to come out on top.  While it's so sad that Azzarello and Chiang are leaving the book soon, they are going out on top.

Greg Rucka is using this Year One story to remind us how much we love Wonder Woman and we learn about her all over again.  While I love the story, I may love the art even more. Nicola Scott is fighting Liam Sharp as to who is the best Wonder Woman artist nowadays, but the real winner is the reader.  I can't see how any Wonder Woman fan won't fall in love with this issue.

Action Comics #28 ties everything together that Greg Pak has thrown at readers since he took over the book.  Pak and Kuder's run has been really good so far, but this is my favorite issue so far and nails them down as my favorite team on Action Comics in the New 52 so far.  I hope it lasts a long time.

Animal Man is ending soon, but Jeff Lemire is going out swinging.  Animal Man #28 is a treat for long time readers and the art and colors by Rafael Albuquerque and Dave McCaig makes it great to look at as well.  It's not new reader friendly, but if you haven't read Animal Man yet, just go back to the beginning and start reading.  Those up to speed will love this issue.

Aquaman #32 is another great issue from Jeff Parker and I loved it.  Mera kicking ass and an honest to goodness sea monster make this the go to book for fun, unless you're Aquaman, himself.  Arthur is up to his eyeballs in trouble and I can't wait to see how he gets out of it.  Also, Paul Pelletier returns to form and makes this book look like it should, which is beautiful.  Highly Recommended.

Batman Beyond 2.0 #27 is an issue all about trust.  The cracks are beginning to show in the Bruce-Terry relationship, but this isn't the first time Bruce has had this problem.  The issue continues the awesome Mark of the Phantasm arc, but has ties to so much more. This is required reading for anyone who considers themselves a Batman Beyond fan.  Highly recommended.

Tom Taylor wraps up his mini arc in fine fashion.  The way Taylor unfolds the story is so good as we see what makes each character so special...Batman shows off some major detective skills as well as planning way ahead while Superman is just a caring hero who would do anything for a guy he just met.  Add Lobo and a murder mystery to the mix and we have ourselves a winner.  A huge winner that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

This issue starts the Calendar Man arc and it's off to a great start.  After a slow, but funny beginning, the pace picks up and the issue ends with a great cliffhanger that adds yet another classic character to the Arkham roster.  Victor Bogdanovic's art is a great compliment to the story as the Arkham Knight trolley keeps on cruising along.  Jump on board and enjoy one of the best books out today.  I'll be the guy in the front seat, smiling away.

If you are a fan of Catwoman, then you need to read this issue!  Frank Tieri wraps ups his “Run Like Hell” story in a way that fits his main character...tough as nails and smart as a whip.  While it's such a shame that the DCU will have a lot less Catwoman once Rebirth hits, Tieri and Inaki Miranda are sending her out in style.

Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray and John Timms start off their near future, brain controlling, action movie mystery book off in style.  I am intrigued to see where it is all going and am already invested in the main characters, Spencer and Kalina.  Hey, it's pretty much Team Harley Quinn giving us a story that's a combination of The Last of Us, 1984, Minority Report and a whole bunch of other things I'm too stupid to know about.  Highly Recommended.

Even if you are tired of the grimness of Futures End, you'll love this issue.  It's fun, ridiculous and has the Joker.  This issue is just another reason why Conner, Palmiotti and Hardi are one of my favorite creative teams today.

Injustice: Year Two has been about the journey, the destination and the multiple pit stops in between.  Issue #6 continues the greatness with Tom Taylor taking his time to develop his characters and the messed up World they live in.  Things are about to explode and with Bruno Redondo on art, I guarantee it will look great when it does.  Every comic book fan should be reading this book.

Smallville: Lantern #5 gets the series back on track after a bit of a letdown last week.  Bryan Q, Miller gives us three branching plots that are all heading for a collision course.  Marcio Takara's art is good and really gives the action some pop.  The old feeling of loving this book is back.

If you've been waiting for Diana to act and look more like Wonder Woman, than De Liz and Dillon have a chapter for you. While I was kind of afraid that this time would come, actually seeing it was awesome and made me eat my words. Believe me, they went down easier than six tacos and with such an action packed story and great art (with outstanding color work), I think that fans of this series will look at this chapter as a highlight among highlights. That's how good this series is...a series of highlights on top of other highlights all rolled up in one big highlight. I'm sorry if I sound like a fanboy...actually I don't! Highly Recommended.

The Unwritten - Apocalypse #3 is a dense, mysterious and awesome issue. Mike Carey makes you work for your meal, but in the end it's well worth it.

Batman '66 Meets Green Hornet #4 is another good issue.  Garman and Smith know the characters and put them in situations that could be from a lost episode.  Ty Templeton's art is awesome and the motion comic aspect makes it even better.  This series is getting better and better as it progresses.  Highly Recommended.

Don't let the fact that this issue is coming out a couple week's late deter you from grabbing it because if you are reading the Rebirth Action Comics series, you need to read this.  I thought one of the major flaws of that book was not giving us enough of Lex's motivation to become the new Superman and that's what you get here...in spades.  Dan Jurgens just nails the complexities that make up Lex Luthor and while he is still a guy who will screw over everyone to get his way, after this issue, he is now my Superman.  How messed up is that?!?

Action Comics #26 is a good setup issue for future stories.  Pak and Kuder gives the reader giant monster battles, a mysterious new villain who poses a real threat, a strong female character and a crazy twist ending. Action Comics is quickly becoming the go-to book for Superman fans in the New 52.

Action Comics #27 shows that Greg Pak's Superman is one of the best written.  Without a clear villain, Pak let's us meet Superman all over again.  Aaron Kuder is joined by R.B.

While this oversized one-shot could have been a bit more new reader/tv watcher friendly, it is a great comic for Adventure Time fans and a fun story for anyone who wants to believe that there is a hero in all of us.  Christopher Hastings and Ian McGinty make sure that everyone can get nice and comfy in the Land of Ooo with music and fun and if you're not careful you might learn something before it's done.  Hey, Hey...Wait a minute.  Strike that.  Reverse it..."Adventure Time!"

I didn't realize how much I missed reading a Supergirl book until I picked this up.  Sterling Gates does a great job of giving readers a story that both fans of the show and non viewers can both enjoy equally.  This first story gets the reader up to speed, but also focuses on values like trust and family without ever feeling forced.  Bengal's art is beautiful and the whole package combines to give anyone looking for an all-ages comic an excellent choice.

It may not be a great jumping on point for new readers, but if you are already a fan, this is a must read.

Dan Slott is currently weaving what seems to be a new take on a classic Spider-Man tale. I just can't state enough how much I've loved the Before Dead No More story arc. The Amazing Spider-Man title currently has years of stories finally merging together and I love when you put in that commitment to a comic and it all starts to pay off in new and interesting ways . The mystery of what the Jackal is up to, who exactly he is, why he has returned, and who he is bringing back with him has me gobbling up each issue while my brain is spinning like a top trying to guess what will happen next.  Basically, Dan Slott is making Spider-Man great again!

This issue shows that Tom King has a little more in store than just giving us a book with heroes and villains chasing each other around.  Even the concept of "villain" is thrown into a gray area by how you look at things and Batman is caught right in the middle of it.  Right now it's Gotham vs Gotham and I'm not sure who is going to come out on top.

Wow. This book is a lot of fun, my only gripe thus far is that I can't get behind the art work of Jae Lee. Now don't get me wrong everything looks beautiful, but for a comic book it just doesn't work for me. I'm really looking forward to next month when Brett Booth takes over, who is probably in my top 5 of DC artists right now. But that's another article entirely. Earth 2 has been since it came out one of my favorite books in the New 52 and I'm really happy that the first meeting between Batman and Superman is apart of Earth 2 Batman and Superman. I just have been wanting more back story on our heroes Earth 2 counterparts since Earth 2 began. Killing them off in the first issue of that title had me crying foul so hopefully we get that with the continuation of this story.

Batman: Arkham Knight #1 does exactly what it's supposed to...remind the reader that the game is on it's way and get them pumped to play it.  While it's odd to get anything Joker from the Arkham story at this point, everything else hits all the right notes.  We may only get a brief glimpse at the Arkham Knight himself (herself?), but it's awesome.  This book combines great character interaction with stellar art to bring a  #1 issue that anyone can dive into.  However, veterans of the games will get the most enjoyment so do yourself a favor and play them now!  Highly Recommended.

After two issue, I have fallen in love with this new Catwoman.  Genevieve Valentine is giving fans such a strong Catwoman that what came before just seems silly now.  While I'm still struggling to get used to Garry Brown's art, this book is shooting to the top of my pile.  Anyone who is looking for a smart and mature crime story need look no further.  Catwoman fans rejoice.

By nature, these first issues are going to be setup heavy, but Frank Tieri uses this one to set up so much.  An awesome team, a formidable foe and two intriguing cliffhangers.  If you are a fan of the old Suicide Squad, the New Suicide Squad or anything in-between, I recommend you pick this issue up.

Len Wein and Kelley Jones give Convergence readers two things that they may not have seen in this Event...a horror comic and a totally satisfying story.  This is one of the few stories that got better with each page turn and ended in a way that wrapped it all up perfectly.  I want more Wein/Jones Swamp Thing,  Do you hear me DC?

Van Jensen kicks off his new series by giving the readers a ton of great characters, dense world building and an intriguing mystery. Pete Woods does a great job of bringing everything to life and by the end, I was totally immersed in what him and Jensen were selling. It's a lot to digest, but it's a meal well worth sitting down to enjoy. If you believe in things like the Illuminati and know that the "Truth is Out There", I think you will really enjoy this book.

I understand that this book is targeted at young girls who love the DC Superhero Girls shorts and merchandise and if you know anyone who fits that bill, buy them this book immediatley. However, there is fun to be had by anyone who loves a cute little adventure with adorable versions of their favorite characters. What I'm saying is, if you or anyone you love likes to smile, get them this book. Now, when will DC give us a Superhero Girls Digital First comic so we can enjoy our gals each and every week?!?

DC Superhero Girls Free Comic Book Day 2016 #1 Review may be a long title, but it was a quick read that everyone can enjoy. The story tells a lesson, but it's not forced and having it told through Supergirl makes it that more enjoyable. The art is great and even after reading the story, me and my son paged through the issue and pointed out all awesome characters. I guess the issue did it's job because i am now looking froward to the Finals Crisis graphic novel coming out this summer.

Dc Universe vs. The Masters of the Universe #4 is great fun for fans of both Universes.  There are so many great characters in this issue and the action is top notch.  The true evil is also revealed and allies are forming to fight it instead of themselves.  Things are really heating up and I can't wait to see what happens.

While an issue of Deadpool saving a suicidal girl may not sound great, it really was just that.  Seeing Deadpool do his best and then realize his best just wasn't good enough (that should be a song!) put a smile on my face and made my day.  I can't say this story had a happy ending, but it did have a real ending.  In a book known for it's jokes and gross-out humor, this issue was a very pleasant surprise.

Jim Zub really gives D&D fans a cool issue and some awesome promises for the future.  If you are any sort of Dungeons and Dragons fan, you should at least give this first issue a peak.  It has some awesome action, cool characters a sense of humor and...Minsc and Boo!

I was really impressed with Vertigo's first digital effort. The Wolf Among Us is not just for Fables fans as Sturges and Justus do an excellent job getting everyone up to speed in no time at all. Mix in Steve Sadowski's nice art and I'm definitely coming back for more. If you are a fan of Fables or similar fiction (Once Upon a Time, Grimm...) or just want a mature title with an intriguing story, check this out. Highly Recommended.

If you've followed the series since the “Long Con” arc, you may have several theories of what may happen by the end of this. The earlier arc was a break between the two. Maybe to give it some breathing room before moving forward. Nonetheless, the start of the issue left me excited to see how this all plays out. Faith is a series you really want to check out if you want to break into the Valiant universe and looking for your next favorite superhero.

The Flash Annual #2 is what I like in an annual.  We get a stand alone story that establishes the origins of two of the best DC characters.  The Flash and Green Lantern have always been a great duo and this annual shows why.  Please DC, make a Flash/Green Lantern Monthly now.

The Flash #28 is a really good issue that has Barry teaming with Deadman in search of a serial killer. If that sounds cool it's because it is.

Flash #31 was a great combination of everything I already love about Venditti and Jensen's Flash.  The CSI work, the intriguing future mystery, Wally West and a mix of action and humor.  Brett Booth's art is icing on the cake, but it's a hell of a tasty icing.  I am really enjoying this book and can't wait for next month's issue.

This issue is a good jumping on point for new readers, but there is plenty for returning fans to love as well.  The big draw coming in was Professor Zoom and while his appearance was brief, it sets him up as a pretty evil badass.  However, Henry Allen stole the show and what he does has me so pumped up for the book going forward.

View Issue       View Full Review

This issue builds on Venditti and Jensen's story of family secrets and sins of the past.  They have set up Professor Zoom as a ruthless villain, but the mystery of his connection to the Allen family is what is driving this story forward.  While this issue is more setup, it sets up an intriguing story that I want to figure out right now, but am glad to see unfold a little with each issue.  The art is some of the best in the DC You and if you haven't been reading The Flash, I suggest you jump on with this arc.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Robert Venditti and Van Jensen wrap up the Zoom arc in a satisfying and kind of open-ended way. While Thawne didn't win the battle, he may still have won the war, but only time will tell.  Brett Booth didn't "save his best for last" because he gave his best on every issue and this one is equally awesome.  I will miss him, but I'll continue being a big Flash fan and am sure Jesus Merino will do a good job.

This issue is pure filler, but that's not exactly a bad thing.  Tim Seeley and Tom King give Dick Grayson fans a fun-filled issue that shows how fun it is to be him.  Without moving the story forward, they give us the most "Grayson" issue of Grayson yet and I really enjoyed it.  Mikel Janin helps out with some awesome art that accentuates the charm of the story and the fun characters within.  It may not convert the unbelievers, but Seeley, King and Janin are preaching to the choir when it comes to this reviewer.

Van Jensen has made Green Lantern Corps the book with "character".  He has taken a book that was being crushed by the shadow of the main Green Lantern title and turned it into something unique and viable on it's own.  This issue not only puts an exclamation point on that, but turns the whole Lantern Universe on it's head.  Bernard Chang's art fits the wild alien characters and worlds that make up the Corps and a couple panels aside, I loved it.  Highly recommended.

This was a great comic book interpretation of two classic 80's toy properties turned cartoon.  I'm a big fan of how DC has put out various different mini-series over the last few years to hit everyone's particular sweet spot. With He-Man/Thundercats, they have found mine and I'm sure I'm not alone. The art by Freddie L. Williams colored by Jeremy Colwell with an intriguing story put forth by Rob David and Lloyd Goldfine is definitely worth the price of admission.

This chapter of Injustice is full of setup, but Brian Buccellato continues his recent trend of showing the men and women behind the War and that's what makes it so compelling.  It finally feels like Buccellato has gained his footing and he is writing his own story.  Bruno Redondo swoops in and kicks ass on art and it all makes for a really good chapter that I can recommend to fans of this series.

I really enjoyed Smallville: Harbinger #1.  Bryan Q. Miller can write Superman, but he shows he can write Zatanna as well.  I really like the art of Daniel HDR and the final pages promise a fun teamup for this miniseries.

Smallville: Lantern #8 proves once and for all that setup issues aren't bad.  It is awesome and sets up so much that is sure to pay off in a huge way.  Bryan Q. Miller and Marcio Takara are firing on all cylinders and I can't wait until next week.  Highly Recommended.

I'm going to be upset when Smallville: Lantern is over.  Bryan Q. Miller continues the story with a few awesome cameos thrown in and a crazy cliffhanger to boot.  Everything is coming to a head and I can't wait to see it all come together in the next few weeks.  Ig Guara is on art and makes everything look great and Cat Staggs gives us the best cover yet.  Add it up and you get another great issue of what is DC Comics best weekly series, IMHO.

Smallville: Lanterns #11 is another great issue in a really good story arc.  Bryan Q. Miller's story teamed with Ig Guara's art makes it a must read.  I can't wait for next week's finale, but I will be sad when it's over.  Highly Recommended (Internet Journalistic Integrity seal of approval).

Smallville: Lantern #12 ends another great arc and gets the reader fired up about the next one to boot.  Bryan Q.

Smallville: Titans #2 was another solid issue.  Instead of the breakneck action of last issue, we get more characterization and back story.  The team and the book are all the better for it.  I can't wait for next issue.

This book was a great step movingforward, especially after the annual that I did not really care for.

Despite what felt like a mildly rushed conclusion in this issue, Spider-Man Deadpool continues to be one of the All-New All-Different lineups highlight comedy adventure books. With the abundance of Spider-Man and Deadpool titles that flood the market, it may be easy to overlook their team-up book, but Kelly and McGuinness are doing a hell of job at continuing to make this a must read each month for me.

Just having these characters back together again is enough to get me excited and Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez don't disappoint.  I am already invested in the story and can't imagine how pumped up I'll be when we get the other Lanterns involved.  If you are a fan of either franchise, check this book out immediately!

Mike Johnson and Angel Hernandez continue setting this crossover up with great character work and art that should thrill fans of either franchise.  The slow burn story is building and the issue ends with something that will surely pick up the pace immediately.  The gang's all here, but are they going to be able to come together before another Universe is destroyed? That's the rub of the series and something I can't wait to see play out over the next three issues.

Mike Johnson ends his great crossover with a quick, but still satisfying conclusion.  If you like either franchise, you will easily find something to like here and may find yourself becoming a fan of both.  If you already are a fan of both, this is a no brainer and you need to go out and read the entire series now.

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!! Even in a book that has very little action in it I love seeing Peter being goofy. I still hope that this series leads him into being a part of the Guardians of the Galaxy again because I would love to see more Groot and Rocket interactions. This art team is amazing as well and they way they portray Peter is PHENOMENAL!

This penultimate issue of Supergirl was really good and only made me mad that it's all ending next month.  I wish we could get more because it is worthy of a longer arc, but to their credit, Perkins and Johnson are ending it in style.  Lupacchino's art is stellar as usual and I can't wait to see how it all ends next month.

Superman #32 is indeed the start of a new era.  Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. have arrived to save what should be a shining book in the DC Universe.  It's a low key start that is great as a jumping on point for new and old readers alike.  If you stopped reading this book or were waiting for better days to start, welcome aboard.  It's a great time to be a Superman fan.

View Issue       View Full Review

Superman #33 is a slow and deliberate issue that puts the action on hold to give us some great character moments.  Superman figures out a bit of Ulysses past and it's not what I expected.  John Romita's art is as good as advertised, especially during such a character driven story.  Though we find out a bit about Superman's new friend, I still want more.  Now.  Right now.

It's hard to say if something is worth the wait, but Superman Unchained #7 is a really good issue.  The dialogue and action are great, but Jim Lee's art steals the show.  This issue just shows what this series could have continued giving us if it was ending in a couple of issues. It may take some back issue reading to remember what the hell is going on, but it's worth it.  Highly Recommended.

While this may not be the original ending Snyder and Lee had in mind when this series started, it was a fitting one nonetheless.  The combination of story and art is second to none which only makes this finale all the more bittersweet.  However, I will focus on what we got instead of what could have been because what we got was so damn good.

This was a bizarre way to end his run, but I really liked what Charles Soule gave us throughout the series and in this issue.  The art was a bit off, but the story was a fun way to say goodbye.  I'm going to miss you, Charles.  Thanks for a great book.

Max Landis turns Clark Kent's worlds upside down and takes his fans along for the ride.  Fans who only want their Big Blue Boyscout will probably be turned off by this issue, but those who want a realistic teen aged Clark kent will love it.  Of course, he still has super powers, but the question here is, is he ready for them?  By the end, the answer isn't clear cut, but one thing that is certain is that I am really enjoying American Alien and can't wait to read the next issue.

Superman: Lois and Clark continues being the place to be for great story and art. Dan Jurgens just keeps proving that he "gets" Superman and that's something that is in short supply these days and I love it. This issue is mainly setup for a three way explosion coming real soon, but I don't mind because Jurgens is building the tension while giving us some of the best characters in any DC Comic right now. This series is a must read for Superman fans and DC Comics fans in general.

Another month, another great Superman: Lois and Clark issue.  Dan Jurgens deftly juggles multiple plot lines with ease, giving us some big moments, but leaving the reader wanting more.  It's all leading to an explosive ending, but I just want to slow down and enjoy it while it's still around. Believe me, I'm doing that and so should you.

This Annual felt like a personal story from Charles Soule to those who've been with him for his full run.  Capucine has been such a great character and we get to say goodbye to her in style.  While having five artists on any book is beyond ridiculous, each one does a good enough job to overlook it.  Charles Soule has done so much for the Swamp Thing Mythos, but it's stories like this that I'm going to miss most when he's gone.

Swamp Thing #26 is a great read.  Charles Soule gives us some added mythos and understanding into the Seeder's rise and (eventual?) fall.  The art of Jesus Saiz is great and compliments the story so well.  Like most of Soule's work, new readers can just jump right in so there is no excuse not to read this series.  Highly recommended.

Charles Soule and Jesus Saiz have done it again.  Soule continues telling great stories while expanding on the Green while Saiz draws everything like he was born to do it.  While Aquaman is a bit thick headed, the book ends with a great cliffhanger that readers have been waiting for.  Get ready because the real battle's about to begin.

This is another enjoyable issue of Teen Titans Go!  This book is one of those, if you like, you like it, but if you have no heart and hate having fun, nothing here will change your mind and save your soul from the fiery pit below.  It's a no brainer for anyone who is a fan of the cartoon and anybody out there who gets it for their kids, take a peek at it and I'm sure you'll find an easter egg or five that will make you shake your head and chuckle.  You better...remember, fiery pit below!

Sholly Fisch andMarcelo Di Chiara give readers another rip roaring good time. The Titans on a road trip in the Batmobile? Sign me up! It all leads to the humor and great in-jokes you'd expect from this series and in the end, I was smiling and laughing and I am sure that most people who pick this chapter up will do the same. Every issue is a good jumping on point for this book and you don't have to be young and/or watch the show to enjoy it. In fact, I might say that the best jokes are left for the older readers who know their DC Comics history. If you are any of the above, check out this book and I think you'll be happy you did.

This chapter continues the retelling of Diana's journey to becoming Wonder Woman and it continues being a delight. The darkness that is consuming Themyscira continues plaguing Diana's thoughts, but there are greater dangers right in front of her. SHe is going to have to make some big decisions and if the cliffhanger is what it appears to be, her world is about to get turned upside down. If you are a fan of Wonder Woman or have anyone you want to have fall in love with the character, give them this series and consider it a done deal.

This chapter is yet another great bit to this retelling of Wonder Woman's origin.  Renae De Liz and Ray Dillon deserve every accolade they are getting for this series and quite frankly, it's not enough.  I can't recommend this series as a whole and give it my full seal of approval...for what that's actually worth.

This is yet another great chapter in the Legend of Wonder Woman.  Diana steps up to do what's right and while it's all to save Steve Trevor's life, we are left wondering who will save hers.  This is the most action packed chapter in the series so far and one that will have lasting ramifications.  If you have enjoyed the series up until now, you'll love this chapter.  If you want to see what this book is all about, this chapter will show you, but I suggest starting from the beginning.

This may be the darkest chapter of the series so far.  Things do not end in a nice little bow, but at least Diana proves that faith in yourself and others can go a long way to winning the day.  A long way, but unfortunately, not the whole way as we see the worst possible thing starting as the issue ends.  I hope her faith can carry her through and can't wait to see if it can.

The Unwritten - Apocalypse #1 is a book unlike any I've read. It's thought provoking, confusing, funny, mature and a delight to look at. Mike Carey shows the reader the path without guiding them by the hand and Peter Gross makes the journey inspiring to look at. New readers can start the journey, but I'm guessing veterans will get the most out of it. Being one of the new, I'm still looking forward to taking the leap and learning more about Tom Taylor and the World he lives in.

The Unwritten is a book about the power of storytelling so it's no surprise this issue is so strong on that front. This issue is a backstory, a one-shot and a setup all rolled up into one.

This issue was a breath of fresh air as it ties into the Civil War II crossover directly instead of just being a side-story of things that just so happen to occur at the same time. The issue makes the Inhumans impressive, which is a feat that few writers would have been able to accomplish and the art is really nice to look at. In addition, it leaves you with a cliffhanger that is not only exciting and properly set-up but will also have a huge impact on the world.

This tie-in gives you a good idea as to what one group of the Mutants are doing after Inhumans Vs X-Men #1. I was really pleased by the art in this issue and the best part is how well this story leads you and how the ending leaves you wanting the next issue.

Genevieve Valentine gives us the best "Not Tynion" issue in the series and while it was setup heavy, the dialogue and mystery hit the mark.  The art follows suit, for the most part and it all came together in a great cliffhanger that has me wanting the next issue right now.  If we get a couple more issues like this than this book may jump for my favorite (and only) weekly book to my favorite book period.

Peter Tomasi keeps giving fans the Superman they've been begging for even as he sets up his grim future.  I know we are only two issues in, but Super League is already one of my favorite Superman stories since the New 52 started and that isn't a back handed compliment! At this point in the crossover, Tomasi is still dealing out questions, but the issue ends with a cliffhanger that will have a lot of fans super happy.  However, the thing I still like best of all is having "my" ("our"?) Superman back the way I (we?) love him.

Batwoman #32 sets up a bunch of new plot lines, but is a great jumping on point for new readers.  Marc Andreyko and Jeremy Haun deserve all the readers they can get and more.  This book is so good because it deals as much (maybe more) with Kate Kane than Batwoman.  Please, if you aren't reading this book give it a try because it's one of the most unique books in the New 52.  Highly Recommended.

Just another one right out of the ball park. This is a tie-in done right. The only complaint I have for this issue is that it wasn't longer. Well that and Shazam still being a little snot. It isn't really his fault this time, creepy British dude kidnaps him, lies to him, and steals his power. Just miss the days of Billy Batson being a naive true force for good, but maybe we'll get there. Plus the ending bringing Chris back for his revenge is great. Best part of issue #1 was Constantine getting him killed, and not really caring about it. That part alone made me want to continue this title and made me believe that Constantine would be in good hands in the New 52.

All Star Western #30 lets Palmiotti and Gray get everything back to where it should be.  Jonah in the Old West is awesome, I just wish we got more of it this month.  However, the short length was due to an interesting backup featuring the origin of Madam .44.  The book never left, but I'm so glad it's back.

This issue came out of nowhere and proved that even in a huge action packed event, character rules out in the end,  Ron Marz uses the dome and it's circumstances to show the real characters beneath the costumes and it pays off big time.  If these characters don't survive, I will be genuinely upset at losing them.  I wouldn't have guessed I'd be saying that in a million years. Even if you don't like anyone on this team, check out this book.  It's really good.

Cyrus Perkins and the Haunted Taxi Cab #1 is really good start to a series I'm interested in following.  Dave Dwonch uses this first issue to introduce Cyrus and after a couple pages, he felt like an old friend.  We also get the start of the ongoing story and while there are only a few big moments, one of them is a cliffhanger that has me excited for the next issue. Add in Anna Lencioni's great art and I can easily recommend this issue to anyone looking for something between the capes and ultra violence that seems to be the focus nowadays.  It may not exactly be all-ages, but any teen and up comic fan is sure to enjoy it.

Christopher Priest is beginning to reward those who have been reading his story twice a month while adding a character who is awesome and scary as hell all wrapped up into one.  While the overall story is still a bit of a mystery, the pieces are coming together and I like what I see.  Larry Hama's art is all about the characters and that's good because so is the story.

James Tynion IV continues nailing this book and this issue is a great combination of story, art and character work.  I know I'm loving what we've been getting because we haven't had a whole lot of Batman and I haven't really noticed it and am fine with it now that I realize.  I really can't recommend this series enough.

This is the most action packed issue of this book since Rebirth started, but James Tynion doesn't just rely on that and mail the rest in.  He uses the action to show how far the team has come from top to bottom and I really enjoyed it.  The story moves forward by showing us that the Colony may be an even bigger threat now that they've been put in a corner and Batman and Company are going to have their hands full very soon.  The issue looked great and I am still enjoying the hell out of this series.

James Tynion IV is off to a good start as we look a little at the past while being forced into the future,  While I have no idea how good the Victim Syndicate will be as a villain group, I loved the cameos in this issue and the character interactions were great.  Add some good art and we have a series that is coming back from a bye and kicking ass and taking names!

Though the idea of an "Anniversary Issue" seemed forced, this was a really good way to get readers ready for the League of Shadows story coming up.  Tynion finally focuses on Cassandra, gives us a cool introduction to Azrael (and a great Odd Couple dynamic) and we even get to see Tim Drake...in a flashback.  Overall, the writing and art were really good and I can recommend this to Detective fans, especially those craving more Cass.

I have really enjoyed this time traveling Flash story and even with this setup heavy issue, the trend continues.  Venditti and Jensen expand the Speedster mythos even as Future Flash drags his good name through the mud.  There's a chance that Barry is going to get out of the Savage Lands soon (can it be that easy?) and I can't wait to see what happens when two Flashes collide...again.

Goldie Vance is a really good all-ages comic that feels like an updated Nancy Drew and that is okay with me.  Hope Larson uses this first issue to make the reader fall in love with Goldie as we see that like at the Crossed Palms Resort is full of mystery and adventure.  The story and art are a great combination of fun and I recommend it to anyone who wants to feel like a kid again.

Dick Grayson is is good hands.  Tim Seeley and Mikel Janin combine to make a really good first issue that has me relieved and looking forward to the next one already.  Dick feels right at home as a Secret Agent and while I'll always love Nightwing, I'm glad to have Dick Grayson any way I can.  Highly Recommended.

Grayson #5 may not explain everything or push the story forward, but Tom King does what he has done best...reminding the reader that Dick Grayson is a great guy.  That and Mikel Janin's art have impressed me with every issue and that continues this month.  Fans of Dick and/or great characters in general should be reading this book.

Infinite Crisis: Fight for the Multiverse #13 is the first issue I can truly recommend.  It may lack action, but it's got character moments in spades.  Of course, you can't go wrong when the characters are Lex Luthor and the Joker.  Dan Abnett gives us great dialogue and Freddie Williams' art is appropriately gloomy.  Recommended.

Tom Taylor has delivered another strong issue of Injustice: Gods Among Us.  Like the series as a whole, if you played the game you know that some twists won't stick and other turns lead to different paths.  What is great about this comic though, is that you see how these events slowly develop and come into play.  Some of us may know how the story ends, but isn't it the journey that really counts?

This week continues featuring Damian Wayne and while it only pushes the story forward a tiny bit, I really liked it.  It's mainly because of the awesome guest stars, both good and bad and the great characterization of Damian that Buccellato gives us.  The art is a tiny bit inconsistent, but doesn't detract from the issue at all.  Recommended.

I don't mind setup issues when they set up cool things and this one certainly does.  The ranks of each side are growing, even as longtime members begin to question everything that's been going on.  The art was kick ass and Brian Buccellato gives us character moments and a cool fight.  It looks like it's going to be a hell of a ride to the ending!

Brian Buccellato reaches into his bag of tricks to give us an issue that has Superman getting the shit kicked out of him, a crazy death and Batman going to extremes to find out what Cyborg knows and doesn't know.  Marco Santucci's art is awesome and if you've been waiting for some early Injustice brutality to return, have I got an issue for you!

This issue was a bit heavy on the setup, but watching Superman and Wonder Woman in the Eternity Institute and Batman looking for clues in San Francisco was still great.  We are still far from seeing the Justice League, but the pieces of the puzzle are beginning to come together, even as the mystery of Jackson Alpert widens.  Thony Silas continues nailing the art and as usual, I can't wait for next issue.

Maybe it's because DC Comics likes to hide their digital titles for some reason, but this book surprised me in a couple of ways.  Most of all is that it's a horror comic dressed up in a Justice League costume and I really liked it.  J.M. DeMatteis does a good job of establishing the mood and character of this book and while we only get to see "Batman" in the last panel, I can't wait to see how the story develops.  Matthew Dow Smith's art is dark and gritty and really sets the tone for the book.  I hope this one doesn't go under fans' radars, because it looks like a bloody good time in a time where such titles are hard to find in the DC Comic stable.

Since this story is set further back in the past, it is naturally going to take a bit more setup than the Batman and Superman origins. Bekka is making her way towards the present, but the way the issue ends, she may be further away still. The art was great and I loved the introduction of Doctor Psycho. I really can't recommend this series enough and this issue is another winner.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is a fun, action packed, all-ages comic that seems to just be getting started.  While I really was hoping for more Marvin in this issue, we get to see more of the connection between Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and I guess that's important since they are the stars of the book and all.  The story and art make this one of the funnest books around if you agree that "funnest" is a word and aren't so uppity about stuff like that.  If you are, you really need to lighten up and pick up this book.  Excuse me while I go and eat a hot dog.

It's impossible to have "quiet moments" in a Suicide Squad book so Sean Ryan gives you some great character work amid a riot and a knock-down-drag-out fight and I loved it.  There is going to be a showdown between Vic Sage and Amanda Waller and I can't wait to see it.  Until then,  I'll just keep telling everyone to check this book out before Ryan and artist Phillipe Briones leave and it's too late.  Unless you get back issues or the Trade Paperback, but you know what I mean.

Bottom line is you should give Rai #14 a shot people. I was impressed throughout the book by the writing and story of Matt Kindt. I keep popping in to read his Valiant work for this 4001 A.D. event and find myself enjoying each issue more than the previous.  To be 100% honest, I don't even really have full grasp of what's going on throughout this entire event yet but have enjoyed it for the spectacle of it all alone.  I can't neglect to mention the art team who really emphasize the sci-fi horror vibe this book is putting out for me.  They do a great job of making our heroes standout amongst the masses while the landscapes and backgrounds are as rich as the characters themselves. If you've been hesitant about testing the waters for any Valiant related title you should start to ease those reluctances. Jump in to Rai like I did sit back and have a creepy good time.

Superman/Wonder Woman #8 slows down the Doomed story and makes it that much better.  Those who love Superman are there to help him, even if it seems like he doesn't want it.  The big surprise was already spoiled by DC, but it's still pretty cool and Tony S. Daniel makes everything look great.  I am looking forward to see how this all ends, but also the fallout in this book and the New 52 as a whole.

This chapter introduces one of the best things in the Wonder Woman mythos and continues showing that Renae De Liz is going to cherry pick everything I want to see and put it in her comic. I'm starting to think that she has a similar mind meld going with me that Diana shares with the Duke of Deception, but instead of world domination and raising the dead, I'm thinking about outfits and vehicles. Yep, outfits and vehicles...just what a middle aged father of five boys sits around and thinks about all day, right? Please say "right"!

You do not have to be a fan of Marvel Comics or their characters to enjoy Gwenpool for what it is, but it certainly doesn't hurt.  This is a comedy book that hits the right spots every time. I don't think The Unbelievable Gwenpool has been confirmed as more than a mini-series,  but I'll be happy to enjoy every bit that Marvel is willing to throw at me.  Kudos to Hastings and Company for putting this title together the way they have. Everything is surprisingly original and fresh for a character whose namesake is borrowed from two of Marvel's most popular characters going right now. As your resident Marvel advisor here at Weird Science, I really can't  endorse this book enough.  Go buy it and maybe share your digital codes with Jim... he likes that.

Some of my favorite comics are team books where the writer knows how to use all of the characters and makes them all have a purpose.

While the pacing was a bit off this issue, it ended with another huge cliffhanger.  While Bard id fighting for personal reasons and the nanobot problem remains unsolved, this issue ended with a huge cliffhanger and peek at one of the major behind the scenes players.  James Tynion's story and Fernando Blanco's art are both really good and I can defiantly recommend it.

With everything that has happened in Gotham, it's great to see it through the eyes of an old friend. Harvey Bullock is the star here and Buccellato and Manapul make the most of it.  The story is gritty and street level and great.  The art is a mixed bag, but the writing pulls everything together so well that it didn't bother me as much as it normally would.  Even if you are sick of the "Bat-Robot" already, you'll enjoy this book because Bullock is right there with you.  Recommended.

This is a huge chapter of Injustice. If this final Year needed a kick start to go from character issues to balls to the wall death and destruction, this is just the thing to start it. Buccellato pretty much just gives us the event and we will have to wait until next week to see the emotions and I can't wait. Marco Santucci's art was good, but it's all about story this chapter. Something tells me that Bruce will no longer question if he should keep fighting!

This issue lays the groundwork for a new Justice League and any fears I had that it would be forcing a round peg in a square hole were laid to rest.  It not only feels natural (horrific, but natural), but sets up so many exciting things going forward.

Star Spangled War Stories: G.I. Zombie #1 was a pleasant surprise.  Instead of flag waving and guns ablazing, Palmiotti and Gray give the reader a dark crime drama with two characters I really want to get to know better.  Scott Hampton's art really helps with the mood of the book.  This book looks to be very different from any other book in the New 52 and hopefully a destination for readers looking for a mature, character driven drama.

I'm still all in and maybe even more after this issue.  Williamson is giving us a fun Flash book with a character everyone can fall in love with.  The Black Hole investigation gets put on hold this issue to concentrate on the new Speedsters and Barry reacting to them, but Dr. Carver and his crew will surely become more and more involved as we go forward.  I have theories on who Godspeed is, but I don't want to spoil anything...not even with ridiculously wrong information.

Action Comics #30 has an out-of-sequence release and three artists and is still really good.  Credit Greg Pak's great characterization of Superman and Aaron Kuder's awesome art while it lasts.  Pak ends his first arc and sets up the Doomed story all in one.  Recommended, but you may want to find a reading order and follow it.

Action Comics #31 continues the Doomed event, but to me it's the beginning.  Beginning of me being interested in the story after the disappointing Doomed #1.  Greg Pak does a great job showing a changing Superman who is far from what he has been in the regular run of the book.  There are three artists on display and that leads to some odd transitions, but it can't bring down such a strong story.

This book continues to be the place to be for Supergirl fans...comic and television.  Sterling Gates shows that Kara has an open mind and invites us to all climb inside and it's a fantastic journey to say the least.  Emanuela Luppacchino's art makes it a fantastic looking journey, but it's not just for show.  Gates continues to plant seeds of doubt about the D.E.O.'s true methods and intentions and that's what seems to be pushing the overall story forward.  I suggest everyone get onboard and enjoy the ride, but hurry because I'm not saving you a seat.  I'm a jerk like that!

Regardless if you are an old fan or new for the franchise, this will be an enjoyable read for you. Never was there a dull moment in the book while the story unfolds further.

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman are on a roll.  This issue is campy fun with some clever winks to the fans of the source material.  It's got good action and dialogue and great art from Ty Templeton.  We're halfway through the series and I'm finally warming up to it.

With all the crossovers the Batman '66 has seen, this one is already near the top of the list. It just feels right and while this issue is all setup, I liked it a lot. The story, characters and art all come together to make an enjoyable time that has me wanting more. That's what the opener of a series is supposed to do, right?

I'm sure you can tell that I love this series and while this chapter is mostly setup for the upcoming finale, I had a ton of fun reading it.  Jeff Parker and Marc Andreyko seem to be having a lot of fun as well and it's books like this that makes me a fan of the Digital First stuff.  If you are a fan of either property, do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

I continue to like this crossover and this Bruce-centric chapter was a whole lot of fun.  There are a bunch of big Batman moments here and while I didn't expect them, they were awesome.  David Hahn and the entire art team do a good job and this is an easy recommendation for anyone who enjoys either Batman, Wonder Woman or both.

The stars of the book are writer Marguerite Bennett and the Anchoress. I expect Bennett to graduate soon to her own title and the Anchoress to haunt Batman in the future. Batman Annual #2 is a good stand alone issue worth the price of admission.

Batman #30 starts the Savage City story and everything has changed.  While the story is heavy on setup and exposition, it is great and has me wanting the next chapter now.  I'm sure every Batman fan is already invested in the story, but this arc is one every DC fan should be reading.

Batman #34 is a one-shot snuggled in between Zero Year and Futures End. Don't write it off, though, because Gerry Duggan and Matteo Scalera do a good job of telling a moody detective story that feels important. I really enjoyed it and recommend it.

While the I Am Suicide story is a little more subtle than I thought it would be, this issue hit most of the right notes for me and left me satisfied while still wanting so much more.  Selina Kyle stole the show while hardly being in the issue and Batman kicks ass...and may not have been in the issue either.  Tom King and Mikel Janin are turning what could be a straight up action fest into a smart and intriguing mystery.  Sure, there is still action, but it's everything else that has me waiting in anticipation for the next chapter.

While this isn't a jumping on point for new readers it may be a good jumping back on point for those who took this book off their pull lists.  Actually, go back and get last weeks issue and this one and hope for the best going forward.  James Tynion did a great job of laying the foundation of great character work and I can only cross my fingers that the other writers will grab the baton and not drop it before the finish line.  For now, I'm back on the Batman and Robin trolley.

Kyle Higgins starts a new arc with a bang.  Batman Beyond 2.0 #17 is crazy, confusing and really good.  I can't wait to see what happens next and I'm not even sure what just happened now.

I was a little worried about this Superman's Joker story going in.  It's not that I don't trust Greg Pak, because I do, I just didn't know what to expect.  Besides an unnecessary fight with Lobo and Batman being forced to the sidelines, I am really excited to see where this goes.  It's an added bonus that Ardian Syaf's art is the perfect fit for the story, which is something sorely missing for this book since the beginning.  If you were staying away from this book for any reason, this issue is a great jumping in point for anyone and everyone.  I recommend you do so.

Greg Pak finally reveals who Superman's Joker and I really liked it.  It's someone with recent dealings with the Man of Steel and makes so much sense.  Ardian Syaf draws the hell out of this issue, but in the end, it's all just setup for next month's finale.  However, it is a hell of a setup and has me wishing it was March already.
