Karnak #2

Warren Ellis, Gerardo Zaffino and Antonio Fusio's "Karnak" #2 suffers a bit from some artistic consistencies, but the story about the Inhuman who senses the weaknesses in all things is ultimately the issue's biggest flaw.

In Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo's "Doctor Strange" #4, the good Doctor warns the other magic-users of the impending apocalypse, but his analogy of using magic, punching and puking is what seals the deal.

The Infernal Man-Thing #2

"The Infernal Man-Thing" is ill-served by its new format, but is a good (if unintentional) swan song for the late Steve Gerber, as well as a showcase for Kevin Nowlan.
