I fucked it all up. Bullets whizzed by my head as I pushed one of the masked party goers out of my way and barreled into an alley. The bullet ripped through his arm and he let out a muffled cry, but no one even noticed amid the chaos of the parade.
“You fucked it all up.” A gravelly voice from inside my ear stated matter-of-factly.
I whip around a corner and throw a couple shots back at my mysterious assailant. I cross into an alleyway slick with rain, lacquered with the reflections of neon lights.
Justice League of America #7 (DC)
Steve Orlando (W) Felipe Watanabe (A)
Something big is coming to this issue. Well, at least the solicitation says so. Something tells me it’s a red herring though. Damn them.
Black Panther #14 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Wilfredo Torres (A)
This series is always fucking impressive. Seriously, if you like to read real shit, get on this book. If you don’t like to read real shit, then go read your inter dimensional digital filaments somewhere else.
Detective Comics #957 (DC)
Genevieve Valentine (W) Carmen Nunez Carnero (A)
We gets a little one off for this issue. I feel like we haven’t seen Spoiler in a while. She’s probably fine. Right?
Black Hammer #9 (Dark Horse)
Jeff Lemire (W) David Rubin (A)
Well, leave it to Lemire to make a depressing situation even more depressing. This is why we can’t have nice things.
X-O Manowar #3 (Valiant)
Matt Kindt (W) Tomas Giorello (A)
What happens when you mix a reluctant hero, a distant warring planet, and a magic suit of tech armor from the future? Well, it kinda sounds like the plot to the next Guardians film, but it totally isn’t, I swear.

What’s better than a coven of southern vampires? A coven of southern vampires on the run, of course !
Wonder Woman #23 (DC)
Greg Rucka (W) Liam Sharp (A)
Is it me or is that cover just a little reminiscent of the female reproductive organ? Maybe there’s a reason for that, you know besides Wonder Woman.
Batman/The Shadow #2 (of 6) (DC)sev
Scott Snyder/Steve Orlando (W) Riley Rossmo (A)
This is everything that I wanted it to be, and I wanted it to be a lot of stuff. So that’s a plus.

Seven To Eternity #6 (Image)
Rick Remender (W) Jerome Opena (A)
When you have a choice between almost certain death, and potentially falling into an enemy trap. The choice is obvious. I mean, not to me, but to other people I guess.

Fuck. Spoilers, hardcore. Just read the fucking book.

FINALLY. GOD DAMMIT HICKMAN, FUCKING FINALLY.
There is a staircase to my left, I turn so quickly that I lose my footing and my leg bashes into the corner of the entrance. I stumble down the flight before falling against the door. My breath is caught in my chest. The wet footsteps getting closer. As I turn around, I see the black hooded man pass the alcove I’m curled up in. The metaphorical hand on my throat looses its grip just before the door opens and replaces it with a literal hand.
