His life is like a long slumber. His actions merely the uncomfortable tossing and turning in the dead of night. At work he often finds himself wandering parts of the office that he had never been to before. Not quite sure how long from his post he’s been. He’s not really sure how he feels about anything anymore, least of all the cesspool he calls a place of employment.
Infamous Iron-Man #2 (Marvel)

This doesn’t mean that this comic is bad. I feel like I say that a lot, and I’m never really sure who I’m trying to convince. The first issue wasn’t mind blowing, but I’m giving this one a chance. All I need is a solid issue, I’m already half invested.
Black Panther #8 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Chris Sprouse (A)
Oh shit. It looks like Djalia is coming back. Well, maybe. I mean if you were given eternity to find peace within yourself, would you want to leave?
Old Man Logan #13 (Marvel)
Jeff Lemire (W) Andrea Sorrentino (A)
Logan must deal with the evil he has wrought. I know it was in an alternate universe and all, but still. Someones gotta get some comeuppance, might as well be the old dude.
Archie #14 (Archie Comics)
Mark Waid (W) Joe Eisma (A)
New artist on board. I always dug when comics pull in new artists every arc. Exposes the public to new artists. I support that. Anyway, new antagonist in the Archie-verse, well, two antagonists, but I mean who’s counting.
Batman #11 (DC)
Tom King (W) Mikel Janin (A)
Really impressed with this arc. The last issue was pretty damn intense, it showed a side of the Bat that we don’t really see very often. The preparation, and failure of the hero. It was great. Seriously, read this one.
Green Arrow #11 (DC)
Ben Percy (W) Juan Ferreyra (A)
Dammit this comic is fun. I mean, the idea of every country having an ambassador on a transcontinental train is a little far fetched, but so is everything else in comic books, so screw it.
Black Hammer #5 (Dark Horse)
Jeff Lemire (W) Dean Ormston (A)
This comic is sad. Not in the same way that most are, with your favorite characters dying, or intense decisions. This one is a sort of melancholic sadness. The realization that you are unfamiliar with regular life, that you can never be “normal”. That kind of sad.
Uncanny Inhumans #15 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Carlos Pacheco (A)
I seriously love the Quiet Room. I think it is one of the most interesting concepts in Marvel Comics. The fact that it works as a diplomatic hub for the entire universe means we can get strange glimpses into the inner working of everything. It also leads to some pretty unexpected team-up moments.

Mark Millar (W) Greg Capullo (A)
Not gonna lie. The first issue of this comic made me a little emotional. I cannot wait to see the beautifully rendered world outside of life. We only caught a glimpse of it and already I’m stunned. Chalk another film idea up to Millar. I give it five years before we hear it’s being adapted.
Doctor Strange #14 (Marvel)
Jason Aaron (W) Chris Bachalo (A)
Most everything is not what it seems. So, do illusions actually work on people who’s whole life is a testament to that idea. The answer, is probably in this comic, so you know, go buy it.

So I was iffy on the first issue of the comic before I read it. Then I read it. I am no longer iffy. Thanks Image Comics!
Jessica Jones #2 (Marvel)
Brian Michael Bendis (W) Michael Gaydos (A)
If you liked Alias, the comic not the show with Jennifer Garner, but also maybe the show or the other show based on the comic, then you should read this comic. They left off exactly where the first series ended. It’s tonally perfect and makes me crazy happy, Alias is one of my favorite comics, this does not disappoint.

Ed Brubaker (W) Sean Phillips (A)
This may very well be one of the best comics I’ve ever read. It’s heart breaking, action packed, and heart breaking. Did I say that? It breaks your heart. This comic needs to be on your radar if you enjoy the medium. If you don’t enjoy the medium, first off, why are you reading this? Second, I have something to show you.
One night he dreamed of finding a secret alcove in a cubicle on one of his aimless journeys. Inside the cave, there was a beautiful beach. The beach looked suspiciously like one he had seen on a postcard for Fiji. When he woke up, he found himself at his cubicle, having skipped the short trip home for the night. With some new purpose, he wandered into a new part of the office, one that he had never seen before, which is odd for a few reasons. One, he had wandered every inch of the office for almost fifteen years now, and two, he was on the thirteenth floor, a long way from any new additions they may be building. It was dark, and foggy, which would be the third weird thing, but that didn’t stop him. He continued until he found a strange hole. A familiar hole.
