World War Hulk #1: πŸ™‚ What’s that you say? You have not seen enough comics lately that feature The Hulk beating the shit out of Iron Man? I agree. This comic will cure all that ails you.

Green Arrow #75: 😐 Hold on, hold on… The entire JLA? Really? Now that the door has been opened, every single battle in every single DC comic has to end like this from now on.

Justice #12: πŸ™‚ In this issue, The Joker apparently gains the power of teleportation. Vague similarities to the finale of Justice League Unlimited notwithstanding, this is a pretty damn fun comic. Braithwaite’s pencils give Ross’ beautiful but staid art a much-needed dose of fluidity.

Batman Confidential #6: 😦 Is this the most poorly illustrated comic I have read in years? Why, yes it is.

New Avengers #31: πŸ™‚ Brian Bendis’ latest attempt to break the internet in half caps off a great initial arc for the Dirty Avengers. I trust Bendis to treat the can of worms he’s just opened carefully, and I have faith this will pay off with some interesting stories down the line.

Punisher War Journal #8: 😦 There are, I guess, two ways to handle Frank Castle: one is to make him grim, determined, intelligent, violent, and scary. The other is to dress him up like a refugee from the early 90’s and have him declare himself to be Captain America. This comic takes the second route.

World be Warned, it’s Franklin Richards, Son of a Genius: πŸ™‚ Eliopolous and Sumerak channel Bill Watterson for some whimisical adventures with Lil’ Frankie.Β  Not everyone’s cup of tea, perhaps, but really cute fun.
