Daredevil: Dark Nights #3
Review: Daredevil: Dark Nights #3
3 Comic Reviews
Lee Weeks wraps up his "Angels Unaware" story in "Daredevil: Dark Nights" #3, making his case for Daredevil being an extraordinary superhero but also playing into an ever-darkening trend on how to tell Daredevil stories.
Swamp Thing #23
Review: Swamp Thing #23
3 Comic Reviews
"Swamp Thing" #23 has Charles Soule, Kano, Dave Lapham and Alvaro Lopez turn out a story with ol' Swampy that would have been equally at home in the post-Alan Moore, pre-Vertigo era of this title.
X-Factor #260
Review: X-Factor #260
3 Comic Reviews
"X-Factor" #260 continues the series wind-down courtesy Peter David and Neil Edwards, but the fight between Polaris and Quicksilver feels a little too shrill to make us care about Polaris's role in whatever book comes next.
Fairest #18
Review: Fairest #18
3 Comic Reviews
"Fairest" #18 serves as a transition piece for Sean E. Williams and Stephen Sadowski's "The Return of the Maharaja," and while it serves an important function, it's the least interesting chapter so far.
Iron Man #14
Review: Iron Man #14
3 Comic Reviews
"Iron Man" #14 by Kieron Gillen and Greg Land continues "The Secret Origin of Tony Stark: The Best Offense," as Tony tries to thwart Recorder 451's plan to install him as driver of the Godkiller weapon.

Sheltered #2
Review: Sheltered #2

In "Sheltered" #2 by Ed Brisson and Johnnie Christmas, Victoria and Hailey discover the mass murder of all the adults in Safe Haven, and Lucas' end game starts to go a little wrong.
Pathfinder Goblins! #1
Review: Pathfinder Goblins! #1
3 Comic Reviews
The premier issue of new humorous fantasy comic "Pathfinder Goblins!" includes one great story and one not-so-great, but the art is excellent throughout and fantasy gaming fans will find a lot to like.
Sidekick #1
Review: Sidekick #1
3 Comic Reviews
Writer J. Michael Straczynski and artist Tom Mandrake make a welcome return to the superhero genre in "Sidekick" #1, an uncomfortable but convincing story of a former hero who's long since fallen from public favor.
Avengers #17
Review: Avengers #17
3 Comic Reviews
A trio of pencilers finishes delivering the establishing shots to Marvel's "Infinity" in the pages of "Avengers" #17, co-written by Jonathan Hickman and Nick Spencer.
Green Lantern #23
Review: Green Lantern #23
3 Comic Reviews
"Green Lantern" #23 has Robert Venditti and Billy Tan still keeping extremely close ties to its sister titles, which makes the story involving new villain Prixiam Nol-Anj fade into the background.
