Ghosts #1
Review: Ghosts #1
3 Comic Reviews
"Ghosts" #1 includes work by Geoff Johns, Amy Reeder, the late Joe Kubert, Paul Pope and Gilbert Hernandez. Despite this lineup, most of the stories are unmemorable, making for a mediocre anthology.
X-Men Legacy #275
Review: X-Men Legacy #275
3 Comic Reviews
In "X-Men Legacy" #275, Christos Gage and David Baldeon guide the series to its conclusion after twenty years -- but it's a puzzlingly inauspicious send-off for a title that has endured longer than most.
Swamp Thing Annual #1
Review: Swamp Thing Annual #1
3 Comic Reviews
If it's a 5-week month, it's time for DC Comics to break out the Annuals; this time, Scott Snyder, Scott Tuft, Becky Cloonan, and Andrew Belanger use "Swamp Thing Annual" #1 to tell the first meeting between Alec and Abby.
A+X #1
Review: A+X #1
3 Comic Reviews
"A+X" #1 tells two very short but mostly satisfying tales -- the first has Dan Slott and Ron Garney pairing up Captain America and Cable, while the second has Jeph Loeb and Dale Keown doubling up on doses of Wolverine and The Hulk.
New Mutants #50
Review: New Mutants #50
3 Comic Reviews
With "New Mutants" #50 Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning, Felix Ruiz, and Klebs hit the end of the series, but it doesn't so much end as quietly fade away and keeping the door open for more usage of the concept.
CBLDF Liberty Annual #5
Review: CBLDF Liberty Annual #5
3 Comic Reviews
"CBLDF Liberty Annual" #5 is for a good cause, and there are some gems in it, including a "Walking Dead" story from Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard, as well as a stunning short piece from James Asmus and Takeshi Miyazawa.
Bedlam #1
Review: Bedlam #1
3 Comic Reviews
"Bedlam" #1 by Nick Spencer and Riley Rossmo is a strong debut, with its operatic violence, funny, character-defining dialogue, and a creepy but charismatic serial killer protagonist.
