Daredevil #8

Comics

In "Daredevil" #8, Charles Soule and Goran Sudzuka give us a high-stakes Texas Hold 'Em tournament in Macau and prove that sometimes you don't need to see cards to know what's in front of you.

Action Comics #957

Comics

Dan Jurgens and Patrick Zircher bring one of DC's oldest series back to its classic numbering in "Action Comics" #957, and with it, some other familiar faces and setups.

Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1

Comics

Wonder Woman begins a search for her identity in Greg Rucka, Matthew Clark and Liam Sharp's "Wonder Woman: Rebirth" #1, a promising opening chapter that explores what her title really means.

Paper Girls #6

Comics

Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang's "Paper Girls" #6 kicks off its second story arc in 2016, but it's not until the final two pages that the story shifts from somewhat unremarkable into something interesting.

Amazing Spider-Man #13

Comics

Dan Slott, Guiseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith's "Amazing Spider-Man" #13 continues the "Power Play" storyline, but it requires Spider-Man and Iron Man to act ridiculously immature to advance the plot.

All-New Wolverine #9

Comics

Tom Taylor and Marcio Takara's "All-New Wolverine" #9 has a couple of fun moments, but the storyline is surprisingly predictable on the whole and seems to exist solely to introduce Old Man Logan.

Hellboy in Hell #10

Comics

Mike Mignola once said that the events of "Hellboy in Hell" #10 felt impossible to escape, and -- as he closes up shop on his long-running creation -- the inevitability is both deadening and uplifting at the same time.

Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1

Comics

In "Green Lanterns: Rebirth" #1, Geoff Johns, Sam Humphries, Ethan Van Sciver and Ed Benes set up the new "Green Lanterns" series, but the book barely gets moving before it comes to an end.

Civil War II #1

Comics

Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez's "Civil War II" #1 launches with a bang as an Inhuman psychic named Ulysses helps the Avengers prevent mass destruction.

East of West #26

Comics

Jonathan Hickman and Nick Dragotta's "East of West" #26 rumbles forward as Death actively looks for his son Babylon with a new ally, and a new face enters into the presence of the Chosen.

The Totally Awesome Hulk #6

Comics

In "Totally Awesome Hulk" #6, Greg Pak and Mike Choi quickly wrap up the story about the Hulk and Maddy's encounter with the Enchantress and Thor, but it feels like there could have been a lot more at play here.

Batgirl #52

Comics

In "Batgirl" #52, Brenden Fletcher, Eleonora Carlini and Minkyu Jung's wrap-up of the series feels almost like an afterthought, despite some fun cameo appearances by the "Gotham Academy" cast.

Ms. Marvel #7

Comics

The Tri-State Science Fair goes horribly wrong in G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona's "Ms. Marvel" #7, which finds Kamala Khan and Miles Morales on opposing sides of a geek-style arms race.

Adventures of Supergirl #2

Comics

In "Adventures of Supergirl" #2, Sterling Gates, Jonboy Meyers and Pop Mhan pit Kara against Vril Dox, and -- while the overall story is fun and worth reading -- some of the plotting falls into a pattern.

Usagi Yojimbo #154

Comics

Stan Sakai's "Usagi Yojimbo" #154 is another done-in-one story, where Usagi's moment of kindness to a winged Komori ninja comes back to haunt him when he tries to defend a merchant from an attack.

Astro City #35

Comics

In "Astro City" #35, Kurt Busiek and Ron Randall tell a story of legacies -- both superheroes and otherwise -- with Jack-in-the-Box at its center.

Silver Surfer #4

Comics

Thanks to Michael Allred and Laura Allred, "Silver Surfer" #4 looks great, but Dan Slott's story of Shalla Bal seeking revenge for the erasure of Zenn-La's culture is little more than a retread of the previous issue.
