Nana, Vol. 10

What started as an odd-couple situation continues to blossom into so much more, the most fantastic soap opera meets punk rock story you could imagine.

Infinity Inc. #9

An ill-selling book attempts to revamp itself, but "Infinity Inc." attempts to look more like every other superhero comic on the market. It's disastrous.

Cable #3

Duane Swierczynski and Ariel Olivetti continue what might just be the most important story to come out of Messiah Complex -- it’s just a pity there’s not a little more story in the issue.

The Invincible Iron Man #1

Marvel's big new "Iron Man" series is a welcome return to form for the character of Tony Stark. This is Matt Fraction's best Marvel writing to date for a very high profile title.
