Comics

Daken: Dark Wolverine #23

Daken's solo title comes to a close with a climactic confrontation between Dark Wolverine, The Avengers and the Future Foundation, ending not with a bang but a whimper.

Mark Millar and Leinil Yu introduce us to a title where superheroes exist in "the real world" but fail to offer us anything new.

Comics

Uncanny X-Men #9

"Uncanny X-Men" #9 represents the lull before the coming "AvX" storm, showcasing both teams in action while somewhat muddying the waters of the event.

Crossed: Badlands #1

Comics

Green Lantern #7

The seventh issue of the relaunched "Green Lantern" kicks off another intergalactic war between Corps and offers a hook to snag new readers.
