Avengers: The Initiative #34

A solid tie-in that repeats a little too much of “Siege” #3 for its own good. It loses sight of what separates it from the other books involved in the event.

Secret Warriors #14

In the words of one of the main characters, ". . . we're wasting our time and trying to change a world that doesn't want to be changed." I disagree. This isn't a waste of time, this is a good read.

Green Lantern #52

This issue is being billed as the penultimate chapter to "Blackest Night." I kinda thought that designation was fulfilled with "Blackest Night" #7, but I guess not. Semantics.

Doomwar #2

"Doomwar" is nowhere near as entertaining as "Siege," but then again, it doesn't set out to be. This is a story that plays from the shadows and foxholes of war.
