Detective Comics #23.1

Green Lantern #23.1

"Green Lantern" #23.1 places the focus on new villain Relic, and while Robert Venditti and Rags Morales do a good job of explaining why he's trying to stomp out all the Corps, the storytelling method is a little dull.

Green Arrow #23.1

The Star Wars #1

New writer J.W. Rinzler is a bit shaky at the helm of this major release, but Mike Mayhew's generally gorgeous art carries a jumpy story to make a comic that's worth checking out by fans of sci-fi in general, not just "Star Wars."

Action Comics #23.1

Writer Michael Alan Nelson turns Cyborg Superman into a flat and soulless character with a contrived origin in "Action Comics" #23.1, but at least artist Mike Hawthorne makes the character look villainous and the issue pleasing overall.
