The Incredible Hercules #119

While the art is uneven, the story is a welcomed addition to an otherwise blah "Secret Invasion" event. "The Incredible Hercules" is a top tier Marvel book, deserving of more attention.

In its third week, "Trinity" starts coming together. Mike Norton and Jerry Ordway's secondary story art is a visual treat.

Two issues into Bruce Jones's debut as the new writer of "Checkmate", and it couldn't be further from what we've seen on the book so far.

The Brave and the Bold #14

"Brave and the Bold" teams up Deadman with Green Arrow -- another odd combination of characters that leads to great results. Mark Waid and Scott Kolins give you lots of superhero bang for your buck.

McNiven draws a nice elderly Wolverine, but Millar's story is a ridiculous parody of a post-apocalyptic Western.
