Justice Society of America #34

Bill Willingham's first solo issue of "Justice Society of America" reminds me a lot of the old Geoff Johns "JSA." That's a good thing.

Ed Benes comes in as John Stewart goes all military on a bunch of Black Lanterns. Unfortunately, it's the worst issue of the series so far.

"Incredible Hercules" this month is little more than two teams meeting and fighting, but it's an awfully entertaining fight.

New Avengers #60

Luke Cage has a problem, and Brian Michael Bendis throws virtually every hero in the Marvel Universe at the problem, which makes for an offbeat, engaging issue to read.

Guardians of the Galaxy #21

Conflict with the Luminals over an alien lifeform leads to beaurocracy, pregnancy (sort of), and a whole lot of headaches. Great comic.

Blackest Night: JSA #1

: "Blackest Night: JSA" continues to expand the saga of "Blackest Night" throughout the DC Universe. This series makes way too much sense, given how many potential Black Lanterns are in some way connected to the JSA.

Powers #2

Bendis and Oeming think not enough comics feature superheroes fighting giant Nazi robots and aim to rectify it here. Sadly, it doesn’t add to the main story as much as one would hope.

Avengers: The Initiative #31

Set up as a tie-in to the "Siege: The Cabal" this issue throws the spotlight on Taskmaster. Of course, with "The Initiative" once the spotlight is on one character, others find the footlights.

What If? Spider-Man: House of M #1

Peter Parker’s conflict over dual lives thanks to the Scarlet Witch should make for interesting, emotionally-driven stories, but that’s not what happens here. No, what happens here is a very bad comic book.
