Justice Society Annual #1: Power Girl finds out you really CAN’T go home again. Or maybe you can, but you have to know where home is. This may be definitive proof that the “new” Earth-2 isn’t the same Earth-2 that some of us remember. Awesome read.
True Believers #1: I really like the idea behind this title. First issue was a solid read and last few pages give an interesting lead into Issue #2 and an even stronger connection to the major players of the Marvel U.
Thor #10: Wow, Balder a recognized Prince of Asgard. As if things weren’t rife with possibilities with just 2 siblings in the royal line… I’m enjoying this rebirth of Asgard phase and Lady Loki’s manipulations are a treat to read. You just know that everything that has happened thus far is EXACTLY what she has planned. But the question is why?
Green Lantern #33: Sinestro and Hal are finally aware Atrocitus is alive and on Earth, but may have some trouble dealing with him with drained power rings. Also we get a step closer into seeing how the origins of Black Hand (c’mon, – William Hand? – just guessing here but think I the odds are good).
Ms. Marvel #29: Interesting story that furthers the depiction of carol as the strong hero she wants to be. But the cheesecake cover doesn’t become the powerful Hero that Ms. Marvel is. I AM interested to see what scares a Skrull.
Reign in Hell #1: The demon battle scenes at the beginning didn’t do much for me, but I have a feeling this title will “heat up”in a few issues so gonna stick it out a bit. I love Zatanna and she’s bound to show up a lot. Also Batwoman and the new Question will be part of the story.
Teen Titans #61: The birth of the Red and the Blue! Red Devil (formerly Kid) and Blue Beetle finally bury the hatchet. They should get along better without Rose messing with their heads. That said. I want Ravager back in the Titans Tower. Even her psychotic father knew she belongs there.
H.P. Lovecraft’s Haunt of Horror #2 of 3: I’m a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan so I wanted to love this, but it left me lukewarm. The stories are far too short to REALLY capture the descent into madness that invariably happens to a Lovecraftian hero.
