Astonishing Tales #1

It may have a different title, but "Astonishing Tales" #1 is really just another outing of "Marvel Comics Presents" -- and there's very little astonishing about this comic, either.

Otto Binder and Al Plastino's introduction of the Legion of Super-Heroes is still charming, although "Superman" readers might be more excited by the back-up feature.

Youngblood #7

Uninteresting, dull, boring, humdrum, tedious; take your pick, but they all describe “Youngblood” #7 and I have no idea why.

“Jersey Gods” #1 doesn’t quite deliver what someone who’s read the solicitations would expect, but the set-up story here is pretty entertaining.

Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5: Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe

"Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe" isn't just a clever subtitle for this latest "Scott Pilgrim" graphic novel, it's also fairly apt for what's the most nuanced installment to date.
