This was an action-packed and emotional conclusion to "Bloodshot U.S.A.", a series that managed to pack a whole lot of story and thrills into four issues. Strong work by Lemire and Brathwaite.

Best issue in a series that gets better. We are introduced to the Chinese Joker and there is more development on Kenan as a character. Oh and to those speculators who bought up every single copy of Batman/Superman 32 to flip on ebay, the joke's on you. It's now obvious that, issue #32 was NOT the first appearance of Kenan Kong, but for those who actually read New Super-Man, from issue #1, you coul more

While there was not as much action going on in this issue, I enjoyed learning more about the history behind the Civil War and how that may affect the story going forward. One aspect of this series I would like to see moving forward is exploring the backgrounds, personalities and relationships of the colonists. While the present and the past stories are interesting, I hope there is room for develo more

[ART: 9.5 | STORY: 9 | WRITING: 8.3 | TOTAL: 8.9 (~9)] I absolutely love the concept of this issue and it's done very effectively. Reis' art is gorgeous to look at. Tomasi and Gleason just get this character and every issue is a delight to read. Fantastic issue full of a great story, great writing and great art.

Barber returns to form after a very disappointing Revolution event that needlessly bogged down the Transformers universe by gluing it together to other Hasbro franchises (ROM, GI Joe, Action Man, MASK). If this comic can stay focused solely in the Transformers universe, this will be a solid series.

Unfortunately, this also has the same problem as its sister series Lost Light/MTMTE, you more

Somehow, after the terrible prelude that was "Death of X," this issue turned out to be awesome. I love the opening assault launched by the X-Men; The scene with Jean Grey and Karnak was especially cool. My support lies totally behind the mutants: Old man Logan puts it best when he says, more or less, if the cloud survives we all die. If we destroy the cloud a bunch of people stay the same but d more
