Gears Of War #2

Comics

Liam Sharp's artwork is the draw for this video game tie-in comic, written by Joshua Ortega, who scripted the game's sequel.

Final Crisis: Resist #1

Comics

Ryan Sook's art is a big attraction for this "Final Crisis" tie-in, which sheds light on Checkmate's role in the missing month.

Final Crisis #4

Comics

"Final Crisis" is hampered by its scheduling, but Grant Morrison's deeply dark storyline is operatic and epic in scope and impact.

Trinity #18

Comics

Trinity's second act begins on a high note, as a DC world without Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman takes shape.

Batman #680

Comics

"Batman R.I.P." is nearing its end, and this issue leaves everything in the air. Does it even make sense?

All Star Superman #12

Comics

The final issue of the Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely's epic "All Star Superman" has arrived. Did it end as well as it began?

100 Bullets #95

Comics

As "100 Bullets" draws closer to its end, its creators continue to surprise with stories that are a little less grandiose than you might expect.

The Stand: Captain Trips #1

Comics

"The Stand" is an interesting choice of King novels to adapt to comics, but the creative team does a good job using the medium to their advantage, with the exception of the mixed case lettering.

Batman #679

Comics

Morrison's "Batman" run is heading into the homestretch, with plenty of weird but fascinating pieces put into position.

Halo: Uprising #3

Comics

"Halo: Uprising" adds a new twist to the Halo universe, with a surprisingly moving and authentic piece of storytelling work. Bendis and Maleev play to their strengths here.

Secret Invasion #5

Comics

We check in with our second review of this week's big release, "Secret Invasion" #5.

Final Crisis #3

Comics

"Final Crisis" kicks into high gear, and Morrison and Jones create a new kind of universe-wide crossover event.

The Apocalipstix Volume 1

Comics

A rock and roll band at the end of the world is a high concept that pays off handsomely in this new Oni graphic novel.

Hellboy: Darkness Calls

Comics

The latest "Hellboy" collection from Mignola and Fegredo continues the evolution of the character, and Mignola's interest in folklore.

Ghost Rider #24

Comics

Ghost Rider has shifted style, but Jason Aaron's storyline maintains its focus and its entertaining tone.

Final Crisis #2

Comics

The second issue of one of the most talked about series in ages is out. What's the verdict? CBR's Benjamin Birdie is excited about what he's seen.

The Incredible Hercules #119

Comics

While the art is uneven, the story is a welcomed addition to an otherwise blah "Secret Invasion" event. "The Incredible Hercules" is a top tier Marvel book, deserving of more attention.
