Secret Six #5

After a slightly troubled launch, "Secret Six" #5 not only feels like the series is back on track, but that Gail Simone, Dale Eaglesham and Tom Derenick are making up for lost time as the Six learns the truth of their capture.

Justice League of America #14

Justice League of America #12

"Justice League of America" #12 by Matt Kindt and a team of artists is another "Forever Evil" tie-in, but its contrivances and lack of dimension keep it from being more than a nice-looking comic that does little to advance the overall

Justice League of America #11

With "Forever Evil" in full swing, Matt Kindt, Tom Derenick and Eddy Barrows team Stargirl with Martian Manhunter, but the story in "Justice League of America" #11 falls short of the promise in that premise.

Superman Annual #2

Dan Jurgens and Norm Rapmund make "Superman Annual" #2 look nice, but Scott Lobdell's rather pedestrian and low-key story combined with a misplaced backup from another title give readers little reason to bother with this issue.

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.

Phantom Lady and Doll Man #1

"Phantom Lady and Doll Man" #1 has Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Cat Staggs, and Tom Derenick serve up a new origin for the duo of crime fighters, but most of it feels rather slow and a little too by-the-book.
