New Avengers #60

Luke Cage has a problem, and Brian Michael Bendis throws virtually every hero in the Marvel Universe at the problem, which makes for an offbeat, engaging issue to read.

Guardians of the Galaxy #21

Conflict with the Luminals over an alien lifeform leads to beaurocracy, pregnancy (sort of), and a whole lot of headaches. Great comic.

The Last Days of American Crime #1

Blackest Night: JSA #1

: "Blackest Night: JSA" continues to expand the saga of "Blackest Night" throughout the DC Universe. This series makes way too much sense, given how many potential Black Lanterns are in some way connected to the JSA.

Powers #2

Bendis and Oeming think not enough comics feature superheroes fighting giant Nazi robots and aim to rectify it here. Sadly, it doesn’t add to the main story as much as one would hope.

Avengers: The Initiative #31

Set up as a tie-in to the "Siege: The Cabal" this issue throws the spotlight on Taskmaster. Of course, with "The Initiative" once the spotlight is on one character, others find the footlights.

What If? Spider-Man: House of M #1
