Despite the circumstance, he was nervous. Fingers trembled as he gripped the mic stand. He hoisted it beside him, stepping against his nerves into the mist. The sun had yet to show its effervescent face, the moon glowered over the night’s domain. Pops of stacking bounced through the microphone as the cool water on the air clung to his face.
Bloodshot U.S.A. #4 of 4 (Valiant)
Jeff Lemire (W) Doug Braithwaite (A)
Bloodshot the ongoing had been kicking so much ass until this limited. It feels forced, and for a mini “event” in the Bloodshot-verse, it has even less going on than the last two arcs of the ongoing did. It feels like the unenthusiastic pop of a dud firework. Hopefully this isn’t Lemire’s last arc.
Divinity III #2 (Valiant)
Matt Kindt (W) Trevor Hairsine (A)
Cool concept for the new series. I can dig the world building, but I’m still not sure this new series isn’t just excessive. I love the character, but it feels a little bit like his story has been told. Good writers can always move a story forward though, and Kindt is definitely that.

This is a weird relationship. I love this comic but, after taking so long to come out with the next installments in the series, I’m a little confused. A recap page would help a lot. We don’t all have great memories.
Hulk #2 (Marvel)
Mariko Tamaki (W) Nico Leon (A)
I really dig this take on Jennifer. I already love the character, but with any character , things can get stale. I am excited to see where this goes.
Ether #3 (Dark Horse)
Matt Kindt (W) David Rubin (A)
Okay, so the last issue was surprisingly sad for a fairly upbeat first issue. I love a comic that has layers, you know, the dark mysterious type.
Teen Titans #4 (DC)
Ben Percy (W) Khoi Pham (A)
This series is great. That is all. Seriously though, if you hate Damien, you should read this and love him with me.
Black Panther #10 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Brian Stelfreeze (A)
Last issue was badass, I am excited for the return of Shuri. She brings so much to T’Challa’s character.
Dead Inside #2 of 5 (Dark Horse)
John Arcudi (W) Toni Fejzula (A)
I picked this one up because I saw Arcudi, and saw it was a crime comic. I fell in love with Arcudi’s work with Creep, a crime comic. I was not dissappointed. Check it out if you can.
Inhumans Vs. X-Men #3 of 6 (Marvel)
Charles Soule/ Jeff Lemire (W) Javi Garron (A)
Okay, so the last issue had the opposite effect on the world that I thought it would. Looks like the Inhumans may have underestimated the mutants just a bit. I’m still team Inhuman.
Thanos #3 (Marvel)
Jeff Lemire (W) Mike Deodato (A)
It’s been a while since I’ve seen the Imperial Guard. Since the good ole days of Hickman’s Avengers/New Avengers runs. Ah, the good ole days of 2015.
Infamous Iron Man #4 (Marvel)
Brian Michael Bendis (W) Alex Maleev (A)
Well, I did not see this coming. I mean, not in my wildest dreams. Good on you Bendis.
Daredevil #16 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Goran Sudzuka (A)
Fuck, I loved the last issue of this comic. What an awesome start to an arc that promises all the things I love about this character. Big Baddie Bullseye is back baby.
Detective Comics #949 (DC)
James Tynion IV (W) Ben Oliver (A)
This series never fails to deliver. It stands shoulder to shoulder with the Batman comic, and that is saying a whole fucking lot.
Doctor Strange #16 (Marvel)
Jason Aaron (W) Chris Bachalo (A)
This comic is a roller coaster. It is fucking great. I love it.
Wonder Woman #15 (DC)
Greg Rucka (W) Liam Sharp (A)
I never thought I’d see Diana break. ONLY FIFTEEN ISSUES IN TO BOOT! The ethical dilemmas with observing a Demigod’s mental status, and GO!
Reborn #4 (Image)
Mark Millar (W) Greg Capullo (A)
Seriously, don’t be dicks to your animals. This comic should be a lesson to you all.
Saga #42 (Image)
Brian K. Vaughan (W) Fiona Staples (A)
YAY end of arc. BOO long hiatus. Sadface.
Planting his feet he began unleashing a tirade of jokes. Silence filled the crevices between every breath. What else could he expect? The world was in mourning, and it was still morning. He sang his passion to the fading taillights in the distance. All of his heart was in his words. After he had finished, he breathed in deep. In the distance, unbeknownst to him, a single man, on his was to his car was laughing. The world was better.
