Clue #3

Aug 10, 2017

This isn't the best comic on the stands, but it's a helluva good one, and unless you have a pathological hatred for the board game Clue, you'll probably get a kick out of this series.

Edge of Venomverse #4

Aug 10, 2017

Unless you're a die-hard Old Man Logan fan, skip the heck out of this.

Flash (2016) #28

Aug 10, 2017

The Flash is one of the best DC comic books right now, perhaps second only to Tom King's Batman. That said, this is not the first issue you should pick up. Not that it's not a great introductory issue, because it is but because it's quite clearly a sequel.

Gotham Academy: Second Semester #12

Aug 10, 2017

Gotham Academy is over, long live Gotham Academy. The beautiful relic from the latter days of the New 52 has finally drawn to a close and god what a close it is.

Aug 3, 2017

Man, Injection just keeps getting weirder and weirder and I'm so here for it.

Jessica Jones #11

Aug 3, 2017

Like most of Bendis' writing, this issue doesn't feel so much like a chapter as it does a sentence, but dang is it a good one.

Ms. Marvel (2015) #21

Aug 10, 2017

Good art. Good writing. Good comics. While the majority of the Marvel Universe is dealing with Secret Empire, a huge event that is about fascism taking over America, turning concentration camps into reality, and indiscriminate chaos, Ms. Marvel - a series decidedly not tied-in to Secret Empire - is the one with the most to say about the realities of fascism in America.

Redlands #1

Aug 10, 2017

If, like me, you can't get enough of horror comics, Redlands is definitely one to check out.

Secret Warriors (2017) #5

Aug 10, 2017

Secret Warriors has been a weird series for me personally because I loathe Secret Empire with my every being, and couldn't care less about the Inhumans, but this Secret Empire tie-in, starring the Inhumans, is so freaking good.

Sex Criminals #20

Aug 3, 2017

Overall, it's a good installment in the Sex Criminals saga, and exactly what you've come to expect from Zdarsky and Fraction.

Shade, the Changing Girl #11

Aug 3, 2017

It's a series about love and life and death and how all of its the same and this issue, more than any, encapsulates that.

Supergirl (2016) #12

Aug 10, 2017

It's not that this series is bad, but like so many other Steve Orlando books, I feel it has the potential to be great and just doesn't reach it.

Superman (2016) #28

Aug 3, 2017

As always, Superman remains a somewhat low stakes but utterly charming series, telling the tale of Superman, his super-son Jon, and reporter wife Lois Lane as they make a life in their new home of Hamilton.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015) #23

Aug 10, 2017

All in all, this is a great issue of Squirrel Girl, featuring fun fourth-wall breaking montages, some of the best liner notes, and perhaps the best villains so far.

The Unstoppable Wasp #8

Aug 3, 2017

Look, if I could, all I would do is the tears emoji fifteen times. This issue is the last of what was one of Marvel's best series, The Unstoppable Wasp.

Turok (2017) #1

Aug 3, 2017

If the comic embraces that craziness and sticks with it, this might be a series worth reading. But for the moment? Eh.
