The Bounce #1

After a few issues of "Sex," Joe Casey takes on drugs in his new Image ongoing. It's being sold as a funny book about a slacker superhero, but there's actually a lot more to the story, which makes "The Bounce" #1 worth checki

Wonder Woman #20

Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang's "Wonder Woman" has been chugging along on its save-the-baby storyline for over a year now and issue #20 is no different.

Comics

Batman and Red Hood #20

Batman keeps working through the death of Damian (hint: he's not taking it well) in Peter Tomasi and Pat Gleason's ongoing. Meanwhile, Carrie Kelly seems primed to be the next Robin -- unless there's something more going on.

Comics

Abe Sapien #2

"Abe Sapien" #2, by Mike Mignola, Scott Allie and Sebastian Fiumara, gives a lot more of the title character than issue #1, but gets lost in continuity that may turn off all but the most hardcore Hellboy fans.

Comics

Mighty Skullkickers #1

Jim Zub and Edwin Huang's Mighty Skullkickers #1 is actually part three of a fun swords-and-sorcery adventure (and a running gag of first issues) that's a great comic all around and a must-read for fantasy fans.

Comics

Lookouts #5

"Lookouts" by Ben McCool and Robb Mommaerts finally seems to be on a regular schedule, but its latest issue doesn't quite live up to the promise of its debut, with a thin story and art that looks a little rushed.

Comics

Judge Dredd: Year One #1

Matt Smith and Simon Coleby send Judge Dredd up against psychic kids in a book that doesn't really feel very "Year One," but captures much of what's great about the classic Dredd strips anyway.

Comics

Ultimate Comics Wolverine #1

Wolverine returns, sort of, in a new series from Cullen Bunn and David Messina that checks all the boxes of an X-Men story without adding anything new.

Comics

Sex #1

Joe Casey clearly has a lot to say about the fine line between sex and violence, but "Sex" #1 is slow to get to the point. Luckily the excellent art and colors waste no time.

Comics

"League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" fans rejoice! Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill finally tackle the Cthulhu mythos in a short graphic novel that honors H.P. Lovecraft's legacy and tells an exciting, dense tale of Antarctic adventure.

Comics

Vitriol the Hunter #1

Good Charlotte guitarist Billy Martin's vampires-in-the-future tale "Vitriol the Hunter" finally hits stands with some interesting ideas, but could have used more time on the drawing board.
