The Sixth Gun #6

Tue, November 23rd, 2010 | Category: Review

Not just a good comic, but a dependable one, as well.

Avengers #7

Mon, November 22nd, 2010 | Category: Review

The Avengers are still less angsty, but this issue is all set up.

The first issue of Morrison's "Batman Incorporated" is a blast, with an amazing art team in Paquette and Lacombe.

Jason Aaron ramps up the pulp and creates an entertaining tale of Wolverine trapped in hell, alongside two Ghost Riders and more.

Punisher: In The Blood #1

Rick Remender does another great job in couching the craziness of The Punisher, as set in the Marvel Universe.

Batman and Robin #15

Mon, October 25th, 2010 | Category: Review

Grant Morrison has erased any doubts that his Batman universe of titles could be anything less than extraordinary.

Ex Machina #50

"Ex Machina" comes to an end.

Franken-Castle #19

Mon, August 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

Rick Remender and Tony Moore top themselves on the latest issue of their Franken-Castle run.

The Walking Dead #75

Tue, July 27th, 2010 | Category: Review

While the series has its weak spots, the strengths still overcome them. Adlard's art carries the story, and Kirkman excels at creating dramatic situations.

Iron Man/Thor (FCBD) #1

Sun, May 2nd, 2010 | Category: Review

Think of it as an early look at Matt Fraction's "Thor" run. Or see it as an introduction to two characters that new readers should have a passing familiarity with already. Either way, it's a hit.

Ghost Rider: Heaven's On Fire #6

Tue, February 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

Jason Aaron wraps up his run of Ghost Rider comics by throwing everything and the kitchen sink into this comic. And succeeding!

Siege: Embedded #2

Tue, February 9th, 2010 | Category: Review

This companion mini-series for "Siege" ties nicely into the main series, not just drafting off of it.

Batman and Robin #7

Mon, February 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

Morrison's Batman title has a good structure, interesting characters, and great pop art.

The Punisher #13

Mon, February 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

"The Punisher" is good fun comics. It's not likely to win a high award, but maybe it should.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eight #32

Mon, February 1st, 2010 | Category: Review

Brad Meltzer's story arc begins slowly, though with great promise, as Buffy's new powers unfold.

Green Lantern #50

Thu, January 28th, 2010 | Category: Review

Industry veteran Doug Mahnke fills the role of artistic clean-up batter, and "Green Lantern" #50 is his grand slam.

Avengers vs. Agents of Atlas #1

Tue, January 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

In a Marvel that's becoming stranger by the month, a bunch of freewheeling 50's throwbacks can fit right in.

Blackest Night: The Flash #2

Tue, January 26th, 2010 | Category: Review

Kollins' art is superb, Johns' story goes beyond the formula for a very good "Flash" tie-in to "Blackest Night."

Invincible Iron Man #22

Tue, January 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

The book might be moving a little slower now, but it's still very interesting, with great character pieces.

Catwoman #83

Tue, January 19th, 2010 | Category: Review

"Catwoman" suffers from formatting restrictions and uninked rushed-looking art, but still delivers on its premise.
