cwrbatmanAme Comi Girls: Supergirl #5 (DC)
I like this series and I don’t know why. No, I do — the eye candy art.

Archer & Armstrong #7 (Valiant)
Van Lente finds the right character beats and Emanuela Lupacchino proves her “X-Factor” work was just a warmup.

Avengers Arena #4 (Marvel)
Cool last page. Hope it lasts and still matters once it’s all over.

Avengers Assemble #12 (Marvel)
Black Widow was beating up those lizard people with a detached lizard person tail. That’s crazy shit!

Batgirl #17 (DC)
It’s OK. I wish kid Gordon would kill someone significant already.

Batman #17 (DC)
Avoid spoilers — experience it for yourself! #worthit

Batman and Robin #17 (DC)
It’s the family Bat book that manages to nicely balance both themes, backed by slick art by Patrick Gleason.

Bloodshot #8 (Valiant)
Killer action scenes by Manuel Garcia — his facial expressions are great, adding to the intensity of a bad situation.

Bravest Warriors #5 (BOOM! Studios)
The most genuinely funny comic book on the stands right now. An instant upper.

Cable and X-Force #4 (Marvel)
Still on the fence with this book — the art keeps my interest.

Oh man, this book’s a crazy read with energetic art. The stakes are high — I actually said “HOLY CRAP!” out loud.

Creepy #11 (Dark Horse)
Usually anthology issues are a mixed bag — this one’s all good. “Two Faces” wins best shock & “Mermaid” for the gold.

End Times of Bram and Ben #2 (Image)
Atheists and Evangelicals alike can rejoice in its hilariousness.

Fantastic Four #4 (Marvel)
The longer Matt Fraction makes the family angle work the better! A warming read, especially considering the season.

Garth Ennis’ Battlefields: The Fall and Rise of Anna Kharkova #4
100 times better than the first arc. Really, really good.

Ghostbusters #1 (IDW)
As someone who’s only familiar with the movies and NES games, this was a lot of fun! Laughed at the Vigo cameo.

Katana #1 (DC)
Hands down my favorite read written by Ann Nocenti. The art works, too.

Mega Man #22 (Archie)
One of the best written issues in the series. Ian Flynn has the chops to speak to kids.

Red Sonja Unchained #1 (Dynamite)
Is it really that hard to do Red Sonja right? She’s fucking crying on the first page. #WTF

Red Sonja #73 (Dynamite)
Someone let Brian Wood write this character. Please.

cwruncannySecret Avengers #1 (Marvel)
A solid start with great artwork. There are twists and turns but I could easily follow this Nick Spencer story.

Star Wars #2 (Dark Horse)
Blows #1 out of the galaxy. I love how the X-Wings get Uncanny X-Force paint jobs.

Storm Dogs #3 (Image)
Strong, emotional action punctuated with great art and coloring. Plus, a surprising reveal. Solid stuff all around.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #18 (IDW)
If you haven’t jumped on yet, DO IT NOW! A perfect entry point that’s loaded with action and character.

Ultimate Comics X-Men #22 (Marvel)
I’m just not into this volume of Ultimate X. It feels like Matt Fraction just wrote this story in Uncanny.

Uncanny X-Men #1 (Marvel)
#AVX pulled back the power levels of the strongest mutants, leveling the playing field — I like this angle being explored.

The Walking Dead #107 (Image)
This is not going to go over well in the long run. For anyone.

Wolverine and the X-Men #25 (Marvel)
I really enjoyed reading so many characters I don’t care about! An entertaining romp that pokes fun at itself.

X-Men #41 (Marvel)
Brawl looks a lot like Torque. Not a bad issue, but a weak finale. Bottom line of this series: Jubilee became a vampire.
