Review: Hit #1
3 Comic Reviews

Batman: Black and White #1
Review: Batman: Black and White #1
3 Comic Reviews
"Batman: Black and White" #1, a revival of the anthology title from the 1990s, features five new Batman short stories by Chip Kidd, Neal Adams, Maris Wicks, John Arcudi, Howard Mackie, Michael Cho, Joe Quinones, Sean Murphy and Chris Samnee.
Reality Check #1
Review: Reality Check #1
3 Comic Reviews
In "Reality Check" #1, Glen Brunswick and Viktor Bogdanovic put together a convincing but somewhat predictable look at the life of a driven, lonely comic book creator whose creation turns up in a very strange place.
God is Dead #1
Review: God is Dead #1
3 Comic Reviews
In "God is Dead" #1 by Jonathan Hickman, Mike Costa and Di Amorim, the ancient gods are back, bringing with them a trail of natural disasters and atrocities, heralding a return to the Dark Ages.
Green Lantern #23.1
Review: Green Lantern #23.1
3 Comic Reviews
"Green Lantern" #23.1 places the focus on new villain Relic, and while Robert Venditti and Rags Morales do a good job of explaining why he's trying to stomp out all the Corps, the storytelling method is a little dull.
Green Arrow #23.1
Review: Green Arrow #23.1
3 Comic Reviews
"Green Arrow" #23.1 has Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino not only tell the origin of Count Vertigo; they also make readers actively want to check out the rest of their run. That's exactly what this promotion should do.
The Star Wars #1
Review: The Star Wars #1
3 Comic Reviews
New writer J.W. Rinzler is a bit shaky at the helm of this major release, but Mike Mayhew's generally gorgeous art carries a jumpy story to make a comic that's worth checking out by fans of sci-fi in general, not just "Star Wars."
Action Comics #23.1
Review: Action Comics #23.1
3 Comic Reviews
Writer Michael Alan Nelson turns Cyborg Superman into a flat and soulless character with a contrived origin in "Action Comics" #23.1, but at least artist Mike Hawthorne makes the character look villainous and the issue pleasing overall.
The Flash #23.1
Review: The Flash #23.1
3 Comic Reviews
In "The Flash #23.1: Grodd," the temperamental gorilla bumps Flash from the title, staking a claim on the Speed Force and making a charge at the population of Central City from Brian Buccellato and Chris Batista.
Superman #23.1
Review: Superman #23.1
3 Comic Reviews
"Superman" #23.1 introduces a Bizarro to the world of the New 52, and while Sholly Fisch and Jeff Johnson do their best to keep the reader's attention, ultimately this comic feels slightly pointless.
All-New X-Men #16
Review: All-New X-Men #16
3 Comic Reviews
Brian Michael Bendis, Stuart Immonen and Wade von Grawbadger nicely manage an array of X-Men from multiple eras, but Bendis' usual slow and talky approach does little to advance "Battle of the Atom" in "All-New X-Men" #16.
