Punisher #5

Rick Remender's run on "Punisher" might be firmly set in the Marvel Universe, but it reminds me of Garth Ennis' "Punisher" MAX adults-only series.

Vigilante #6

Thank whichever deity you worship that this lame crossover event is finally over. What's more, the true resolution happens off panel. Save your money and read the review.

The Brave and the Bold #23

Two characters from disparate futures meet up in what should be an epic for the ages. Unfortunately, it has a little After School Special flavor baked into it.

Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance #1

Why bother with superheroics when you can dress up, look cool, get drunk, and dance? Right? Then why is the Super Young Team so unhappy with that lifestyle and why can’t they leave their new satellite headquarters?

“Star Trek: Alien Spotlight: Romulans” is a decent comic, but provides little new information for longtime fans and maybe not enough for new readers.

"Hulk" dishes up more dumb fun, but having the other Defenders in the mix with the Red Hulk somehow makes it more entertaining than normal.

An entire issue devoted to the coming of Doom’s master. The tension is high, but the content is lacking.
