B.P.R.D.: 1947 #1

Star Wars: Invasion #1

Comics

This book does do a great job of establishing a galactically tense situation where our protagonists have been strewn across the galaxy.

Comics

While carrying the torch of Big Crossover status, this storyline still feels like a personal but large scale classic X-Men adventure.

The fun takes a vacation, and is missed. This Spider-Man art has inconsistent art and a less charming story.

Matt Fraction's X-Men is about humanity moreso than mutancy. And the characters shine through.

Benjamin Birdie gives the debut issues of "Batman & Robin" 4.5 stars, saying "Morrison and Quitely have laid some thrilling and invigorating groundwork that anyone should be able to follow easily."

The Walking Dead #61

"The Walking Dead" is a hard book to both read and recommend. It is uncompromising, and in some ways almost ludicrously uncompromising.

Wolverine #73

Comics

Two stories feature looks into different aspects of Wolverine's life, producing two entertaining and strong stories that might draw in some of the movie viewers.
