Black Panther #2

Since Dr. Doom is on the cover, I think I can safely reveal that Doom attacked the Black Panther in the last issue. This leads to a new, female Black Panther, who still doesn't appear in this book.

Jersey Gods #2

Too much clichéd plot about gods fighting and not enough domestic comedy. A charming, fun read, but with the potential to be a lot better.
