Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Fool’s Gold #1

This issue is mostly mediocre except for the writing and art of Odo, the only character that the writers and artist seem to understand.

Nomad: Girl Without a World #4

Sean McKeever firmly establishes Rikki Barnes's place in the Marvel Universe, and the story is as earnest as the character.

Batman: Streets of Gotham #7

Easily Paul Dini's best issue to date, "Batman: Streets of Gotham" reads like a disturbing episode of "Batman: The Animated Series."

Dark Avengers #12

What started out promising feels like a deus ex machina ending, even as it all-but-ensures that one character is going away shortly.

The Brave and the Bold #30

Straczynski is living out the dreams of many a fanboy in his time on "B&B," as he connects random characters. Saiz takes it from there and the duo delivers a book that is consistently enjoyable.

A funny, entertaining issue that’s hampered by a clichéd and unoriginal plot. The talent is there, the story just doesn’t let it shine through like it should.

Green Lantern Corps #43

To celebrate Christmas, Guy Gardner puts on a red ring, so he can decorate Oa in green and red. Or maybe this has something to do with "Blackest Night."
