"Criminal" Vol. 2 #3 was one of the best reviewed books in the last week, earning 4.5 stars

Considering all the stories we post each and every week here on Comic Book Resources, we like to take some time on the weekends to spotlight our editorial side in case you happened to miss anything we published.

We start with our Columns, which were kicked off nicely last Sunday by George Khoury's POP! which saw some of comics most respected creators take part in a summer reading list that you just can't miss. By way of a little programming note, POP! will be taking a short hiatus and will return in July on a twice-monthly schedule. That was followed on Monday by Rich Johnston's LYING IN THE GUTTERS in which he brough you a nice assortment of news and gossip for your reading please. Augie De Blieck Jr.'s PIPELINE COMMENTARY last Tuesday offered up "The Truth About Comics Publishers." What does that mean? Read on. Alt-Comics were the topic of the day in last Wednesday's PERMANENT DAMAGE by Steven Grant. Finally, Hannibal Tabu's THE BUY PILE heaped high praise on "Invincible Iron Man" #2, "Detective Comics" #845, "Noble Causes" #34 and "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" #15.

On the Reviews side of things, it was a particularly busy week with a number of major releases. First off, DC Comics released the first issue of their new weekly series "Trinity" and Benjamin Birdie and Greg McElhatton each checked in with a review. Marvel checked in with the first issue of "Ultimate Origins" and once again we had two reviews, this time from James Hunt and Kevin Church. There was also the release of a little comic called "Secret Invasion" #3 which Timothy Callahan took a look at. Finally, "Rann-Thanagar: Holy War" #2 was reviewed by the final member of our six-man reviews team, Doug Zawisza. Check out all the reviews from the last week and beyond by visiting the CBR Reviews section of this here Web site.

Before I let you go this week, I thought I'd take this chance to remind you about the CBR Forums. Our community has, for some time now, been the most active comics community on the web with an average of 6000+ new posts daily. It's a large set of forums with many different communities. The last week saw a large up tick in new user registrations and we want to keep that going. Join the discussion today by registering for a free account. The Community forum is always a good place to start.

As always, thanks for visiting CBR!
