The cop bent as he sat up. It was a quiet creak that seemed larger in the emptiness of the room. The heat hadn’t been turned on. He could see his breath as he stood. The white, bare walls glowed in the morning light. A strange feeling came over him, alone, he felt he didn’t owe anything to anyone. He walked to the frost etched window, he placed his warm palm against the window, melting a perfect print into the pane. That’s when he saw it.
The Flash #6 (DC)
Joshua Williamson (W) Carmine Di Giandomenico (A)
I have a hard time justifying this comic to myself. I really want it to be good, but hoping isn’t cutting it. I already cut a couple comics this week, this may be the next on the list.
Astro City #38 (DC)
Kurt Busiek (W) Brent Eric Anderson (A)
This arc feels a little slow for my taste. I’m hoping I’m wowed by this issue or one of the next ones. That’s my biggest issue with this series. Due to the anthology nature of this comic, some arcs are absolutely incredible and others not so much.

Kurt Busiek (W) Ben Dewey (A)
The last couple issues of this comic were really good. I feel like it has really hit its stride. I expect this comic to be climbing back up to the top soon enough.
Black Panther #6 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Chris Sprouse (A)
More ploitical intrigue. Can T’Challa hold on to a crumbling empire? When the people you protect grow to hate you, what do you really have left? What is a king without a people?
Old Man Logan #11 (Marvel)
Jeff Lemire (W) Andrea Sorrentino (A)
Man. If you like heart wrenching stories, just pick up this comic. Lemire never fails to impress. This arc is just another notch on his sadness belt. Because that’s a thing that people wear.
Detective Comics #940 (DC)
James Tynion IV (W) Eddy Barrows (A)
The first arc ties up with an epic battle. While I’m excited for this issue, I am even more excited for the upcoming crossover “Monster Men”. It’s promising to be an awesome event.
Uncanny Inhumans #13 (Marvel)
Charles Soule (W) Carlos Pacheco (A)
Remember when all those superheroes started punching each other way back in issue 4? Yeah, well the rest of the comics are finally catching up to the action. We get to see what the Inhumans have to say about all of this. My theory, it involves punching people in the fucking face.
All-Star Batman #2 (DC)
Scott Snyder (W) John Romita (A)
The first issue of this comic was intense. I really dug the concept and I fully anticipate staying onboard for the entire ride.
Wonder Woman #6 (DC)
Greg Rucka (W) Nicola Scott (A)
When DC is good, they are really, really good. This series is blowing my socks off. I love the way that the series is laid out. I have one question. How are they going to collect this in trade? Each arc their own seems like the logical answer.
The Fix #5 (Image)
Nick Spencer (W) Steve Lieber (A)
This series has been a surprise favorite. I almost passed up on this when it first came out, and now I’m glad that I didn’t pass up on it. I’ve said this before, but I’d be surprised if this doesn’t get picked up for a show.
The Black Monday Murders #2 (Image)
Jonathan Hickman (W) Tomm Coker (A)
The first issue of this comic was the right blend of mystery and cryptic story telling. It was nothing like what I expected, and you know what? That’s a good thing.
Black Science #24 (Image)
Rick Remender (W) Matteo Scalera (A)
Do we finally get to see our not-so-merry troupe of dimensionauts return to their home? Something tells me it’s too good to be true, but a man can hope can’t he?
It stood motionless in the wilting field that spread acres across his property. The thing from his dream. Instantly he was horrified, but entranced, he couldn’t pull himself from the window. The shimmering black fur of the creature ducked into the maze of wheat and left a trail for a few feet before disappearing entirely. That’s when he heard the voice from the darkest corner of his room.
“What is it you want from me” it croaked.
