3 Comic Reviews
"Shadowman" #0 lets Justin Jordan and Roberto De La Torre present the new origin of Master Darque, for a nasty but interesting read that shows the Darques don't fall far from the tree.
Dial H #12
Review: Dial H #12

Review: Abe Sapien #2
3 Comic Reviews
"Abe Sapien" #2, by Mike Mignola, Scott Allie and Sebastian Fiumara, gives a lot more of the title character than issue #1, but gets lost in continuity that may turn off all but the most hardcore Hellboy fans.

Review: Epic Kill #10
3 Comic Reviews
Raffaele Ienco's "Epic Kill" comes to its natural conclusion in a way that answers all questions, including some readers didn't know they had. Whether you're happy with the answers, though, is the big question.
Hawkeye #10
Review: Hawkeye #10
3 Comic Reviews
Matt Fraction and guest artist Francesco Francavilla tell the back story of a new character in "Hawkeye" #10, and while seeing more Kate Bishop is a victory, the comic itself never surpasses above average.

3 Comic Reviews
"The Black Bat" #1 from Brian Buccellato and Ronan Cliquet is a false start as the creative team fractures the origin tale of Black Bat, keep the tale too simple and throw in a curve ball at the end.
