It does no justice for me to explain this issue to you, there is a lot of information that leaves you with some explanation and plenty more questions. Grant Morrison continues to leave the reader unsure of the true plot, perhaps even completely confused, yet with the way he weaves the story there is no way one could drift away from this comic. Chris Burnham and Nathan Fairbairn bring the story to life with an art style that is engaging and interesting. It's adventurous and full of shades and colors that keep the eye busy amongst the massive amounts of explanation and dialogue. The people behind Nameless have truly delivered a comic epic that will be remembered, so become one of the readers that can say you were there for its birth. Hands down, 5 out of 5.

When I read the synopsis my first thought was of Watchmen, but after reading Secret Identities I have to say it's a story of its own and it's just the beginning. After the action packed first issue and the curiosities it has peaked, I highly recommend picking up this first issue!

D4VE #1 is a comic that screams for attention, to which you should definitely listen. From the familiar yet extremely different themes that give these robots a human like quality, to the creatively vibrant cast of robots and creatures, you will certainly be entertained.

I definitely recommend picking this one up because it's the start of something bigger, if not just to peak your own curiosity.

Hopefully the next issue picks up a little more than the one exciting page at the end. I would like to see more development in both story and characters. There are a lot of questions that need answers and with Warren Ellis at the mantle I have no doubt we will get them in an epic fashion. The first issue of Injectionwas a slow one, but it definitely has potential.

The most impressive part of this comic is that Jimmie Robinson did everything with this comic, which made me really feel what he was trying to get across with this comic, but made me also wonder what if he hadn't. If he focused on the story and perhaps let another person do the art, I feel they would have both received the attention both aspects of this comic deserved. In the end it is a first issue, one I would certainly pick up for the story, which itself I can only imagine will pick up next issue.

Curb Stomp #1 may have had just enough to keep me reading the other issues, but overall I cannot say it is anything above okay. I would have to say the best parts of this comic are the diverse and energetic characters and the nostalgia of one of my favorite cult classic movies. It may be something worth checking out, but don't get too attached because it's only a 4 part mini-series. Then again, with it being so short, it may not be worth the time" that's where you decide. At most, Curb Stomp #1 gets a two and a half stars out of five.

Pirate Eye: Exiled from Exile needs more vibrancy with its characters; I need to feel like this is strictly a pirate story, not a pirate-themed story. I fully approve of the Pirate Noir idea, it definitely works, but I think you can't lose the Pirate in the Noir. Giving that it is the first issue, I still have hope things will pick up and I may pick up the next issue.
