Ok this is me not being late with my review.

•Batman 675- ok this book is the beginning of the whole Batman R.I.P arc that DC has been hooting about. I like the idea of Batman being a little on the nutty side. He should be! Look at all the crap the man has endured. Look forward to Morrison doing his thing.

•Birds of Prey 117- Um, DC appears to be trying a revamp on the book. I mean a new town just when they got to Metropolis. The cast so far is the same but I have a feeling that will change too. Hopefully for the better.

•Countdown 1- $155.48! That is what DC owes me for this damn run. This is bad. I mean clone of Spider-Man bad! I mean this is so bad that it puts doubt in the trinity weekly they have set to debut, and that looks like it will be great. DC has hurt me….deeply!

•JLA 20- Oh yeah! Nothing like a good one shot to make you appreciate the JLA. This is also the best jumping on point. Self explanatory and even gives a little back ground info on what they have been up to.

•Northlanders 5- I like this book. I just don’t think it’s a great vertigo book. It’s not like exterminators or that new book liars.

•Superman/Batman 47- Sucks to be Superman. I mean the US government building up an armory of kryptonite based weapons and soldiers using those weapons. Damn, where is the love.

•Mice Templar 4- I like me knights and myths and what not. So hence this book works for me. It is epic and that works for me too. Don’t think this book is for everyone. Pick up a trade when it’s available and you decide.

•Witchblade 117- this book rocks. I mean they are talking about Irons again and that just means more trouble for every one. The creative team is on point and this is going to go down as one hell of an arc. I mean in all of comics not just this book.

•Mighty Avengers 12- Different artist! Oooohh! The art works! Nick Fury is the man and Marvel has been making certain characters the SHIT! Jump on this book. Well go on.

•Hulk 3- What a damn tease ending! The book is good and raises more questions but you get the feel that it is going somewhere.

•Hulk vs Hercules – Great one shot. I like the way Marvel is sticking to Herc and are obviously going to do a lot with this guy. I mean they basically gave this book to the guy.

•Ms. Marvel 26 – We got us some Skrulls! They aren’t playing around either. They seem to know what the hell they are doing and I like it. You need a good villain. In this case you have a bunch of them. This book does show that a super skrull can be taken down.

•She-Hulk 28- She ain’t Daredevil but she is having a bad run of luck. All that aside though. What is up with her hanging out with a slutty skrull? What are the chances of the freak of earth teaming up with a skrull skank? Damn good read.

•Thor 8- I wish this book would come out more often. It rocked. I mean sure I am bias but whatever! This was a good book finishing one arc and leading into the next. With loki finally stepping up to show that only his sex has changed. Once again a good villain goes a long way.

•Ultimate Fantastic Four 53- I didn’t really like the ending. I did like the jokes thanos’s daughter had. She stole the damn show and I want to see her show up again. I also look forward to see what happens between sue and reed. She did dump him right before thanos hit. I hope marvel has the balls to go through with it for a while

•Ultimate Spider-Man 121- another one shot. It also provides a good jumping on point. I was surprised to see Omega Red in this book but it worked. I know pete is so gonna trash the art though. It’s ok in my eyes.

•X-Force 3- this book is damn good. I mean a council of evil mutant killers! Oh yeah! I always thought the purifiers were some crap group to fill the role of humans hate towards mutants but it works.

•Uncanny X-Men 497- If Cyclops and Emma were real I would have to hate him for hitting that. Which also leads me to hoping she is not skrull. Their relationship is great and I would so hate to see Cyclops go though the same crap he did with the goblin queen. The whole Russia story needs to develop a lot faster.

•Tales from Wonderland: Queen of Hearts- DAMN! I am new to zenescope, so I don’t know anything past the last arc involving the little mermaid. This one shot though makes me very curious and eager to pick up the trades. In other words I recommend this book to others.
