This issue has "meh" written all over it. However, Jock's art is vastly better than John Romita, Jr.'s so the book looks a lot nicer.

Rocket Raccoon #2

GROUNDED!
•  Rocket is kicking in doors and busting heads!
•  Something sinister is preying on defenseless creatures in New York City.

Spider-Man/Deadpool #13

By: Joe Kelly, Ed McGuinness
Released: Jan 11, 2017

• Ed and Joe are back and continuing the most intense story that either the Wall-Crawler or Merc-Mouther (?) has ever experienced!
•  Itsy Bitsy is faster, stronger and better than our heroes, and they have no way of defeating her!
•  So the body count is only going to rise...

Deadpool has been great since the issue he finally distanced himself from the first group of "Mercs for Money" and left those shenanigans for the "Mercs for Money" title. That's when things really started to go downhill for Deadpool (The character, not the series. I clearly like the series) which is when Deadpool is most enjoyable (both the character and the series.) The twist in this issue was fa more

This is an entertaining and enjoyable romp of a smash em up book. The biggest downfall of this book is the biggest upside: lots and lots of characters. It's tough to give each character their space in the pages and have their own moments. Superman had his time in the beginning pages of the book and then got lost in the commotion. Williamson gave him his time and then had to spread the rest of t more

I just can't get behind King's Batman like I could Snyder's. Good issue if you like the "Bat" and "Cat" relationship, however. The art from Gerads is solid as always, though I didn't like the way he drew Selina's face in a couple of panels early on. Do you think Batman has a cushion in his bat belt? Otherwise, those two are in for a very uncomfortable session of roof sex on top of loads of diamond more

Batman #14

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: Jan 4, 2017

How do you solve a problem like Selina Kyle? Is she a hero? Is she a villain? Can Batman and Catwoman ever really work things out? The award-winning team of Tom King and Mitch Gerads of Babylon (SHERIFF OF BABYLON) bring you "Rooftops," a story in which Batman must decide once and for all what to do about Catwoman.
