The Unwritten #40
Review: The Unwritten #40
3 Comic Reviews
"The Unwritten" #40 concludes the quiet story arc "The Wound" with some unusual twists, and the story continues to be lovingly narrated in ever-salty and no-nonsense voice of Australian cop Didge Patterson.
Wolverine Annual #1
Review: Wolverine Annual #1
3 Comic Reviews
In "Wolverine Annual" #1, Logan might as well not be there. This is a ClanDestine story by Alan Davis from start to finish. There's plenty of action, but character development is slight and repercussions are few.
Astonishing X-Men #53
Review: Astonishing X-Men #53
3 Comic Reviews
In "Astonishing X-Men" #53, a villain shows her hand, lovers say their farewell and the team finds out what happened to Karma, but the team still lacks cohesive chemistry and the art doesn't have any snap, crackle or pop.

3 Comic Reviews
"Cubs in Toyland" continues in "Fables" #120, and Bill Willingham and Mark Buckingham's story gets decidedly grim as Dare and Therese's situation gets dire with starvation looming, and a sacrifice must be made.
Spike #1
Review: Spike #1
3 Comic Reviews
Victor Gischler and Paul Lee do their best with "Spike" #1, the start of a spin-off mini-series from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 9," but ultimately it's just a reminder of something that didn't work in "Buffy the Va
The Flash #12
Review: The Flash #12
3 Comic Reviews
"The Flash" #12 puts the Flash in a tight spot as he apparently becomes responsible for the death of a supporting character just as the Rogues rise up to cause even more calamity.
Planetoid #3
Review: Planetoid #3
3 Comic Reviews
With "Planetoid" #3, Ken Garing's science-fiction story has changed from a simple tale of survival to one of society-building, and in doing so it has become much more interesting.
