Superman #23.1

"Superman" #23.1 introduces a Bizarro to the world of the New 52, and while Sholly Fisch and Jeff Johnson do their best to keep the reader's attention, ultimately this comic feels slightly pointless.

Legion of Super-Heroes #18

Keith Giffen's second issue is perhaps his last on "Legion of Super-Heroes" #18, and that's too bad because Paul Levitz, Scott Kolins and Tom Denerick are definitely energized by his presence.

Legion of Super-Heroes #14

There are a few good moments in "Legion of Super-Heroes" #14, but Paul Levitz and Scott Kolins ultimately are serving up an absolutely average comic.

Legion of Super-Heroes #1

This might actually be a good comic book, but it feels like issue #21, not #1 and thus ultimately fails.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #23

"R.E.B.E.L.S." quietly continues to do its own thing, but it's hard to keep from wishing it would focus more on its own cast of characters.

Action Comics #885

"Action Comics" continues to be a 100% Superman-free read for all those comic book fans with Superman allergies. All the same, the title does live up to its name with this issue, in both the main story and the backup.

Marvel Apes: Speedball #1

No, seriously. It's Speedball. And he's a monkey. Maybe that's why Joe Quesada's least favorite character got his own one shot?

Marvel Apes #1

"Marvel Apes" is a bit of a reach conceptually, and is certainly not a book for every fan. It does, however, bring an unexpected charm while providing an escape from the summertime events of the main Marvel Universe.
