Batman/Superman # 17– The concept of the golden age versions of both Batman and Superman is an absolute joy to read because everything about it is a great throwback to those classic alternate earth stories that DC’s known for and the fact that it’s in a film serial is special as well as the pulp elements that are thrown in for good measure, so if you’re not reading this series now’s the time to do so.

Beta Ray Bill # 2– Bill’s journey to get a new weapon after Stormbreaker was destroyed by Thor is a great story worth reading and from what I’ve read, I like how Bill has two sidekicks in the form of Skurge and Pip so the formation of this motley crew helps elevate the series mainly because the two of them help keep Bill grounded but also deliver some comic relief ( in the form of Skurge); The series continues to deliver such big elements all while re-establishing Bill as an iconic figure in the Marvel Universe.

Miles Morales: Spider-Man # 25– When any comic book fan reads a Spider-Man story and has such a vast knowledge of the character, one thing comes to mind- CLONES! So I guess it’s only right for Miles Morales to get his own Clone Saga; Right off the bat I like how it’s totally different than the previous saga that Peter Parker had to endure but the appearance of the latter helps make this a true Spider-Man story and you don’t have to worry about The Jackal showing up and that’s a good thing because, in order for this arc to stand on its own feet, this arc needs to feel fresh and innovative instead of bringing out the old factors that brought down the version of the ’90s.

Shadecraft # 2– With this series now on its second issue, it continues to be strong thanks in part to the storyline and I really love the chemistry between Zadie and her brother Ricky (The connection they share will be enjoyable for fans of this series);
and you’ll be in for quite a shock when Zadie meets the guidance counselor at her school (**NO SPOILERS**); The suspense factor’s a definite plus for this series so do yourself a favor and give it a try.

X-Men Legends # 3– Louise and Walt Simonson reunite for an untold tale from their classic run on “X-Factor” and everything about this issue brings back fond memories; From Apocalypse to Cameron Hodge being involved to Ship (Apocalypse’s base of operations given to X-Factor) running amok, this was indeed a fun read and for anyone who grew up reading the X-Men titles in the ’80s, check this out and be prepared to be taking back to memory lane.

Well, that’s it for me this week. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.
