Chew #37
Review: Chew #37
3 Comic Reviews
"Chew" #37 by John Layman and Rob Guillory is Part 2 of the "Family Recipes" storyline, with guest appearances from several Chu family members and a revelation from a visit to the FDA Supermax prison.
X-Men #6
Review: X-Men #6
3 Comic Reviews
"X-Men" #6 by Brian Wood and David López succeeds as both a chapter of "Battle of the Atom" and the ongoing series, but the large cast and no references to past events make it a tough read for the more casual X-Men reader.
Rocket Girl #1
Review: Rocket Girl #1
3 Comic Reviews
Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder's "Rocket Girl," #1, launching the adventures of Dayoung Johansson, time-travelling officer in the New York Teen Police Department , is one of the strongest new titles of the year.
Abe Sapien #6
Review: Abe Sapien #6
3 Comic Reviews
Mike Mignola and Scott Allie story in "Abe Sapien" #6 is a little slow and drawn out, but the gorgeous art by Sebastian Fiumara drawing Mayan legends is easily worth the cover price.
Superman/Wonder Woman #1
Review: Superman/Wonder Woman #1
3 Comic Reviews
"Superman/Wonder Woman" #1 by Charles Soule and Tony S. Daniel works better as a straightforward superhero team-up than as a love story and is padded with full page illustrations, but this first issue will make readers want more.
Batman #24
Review: Batman #24
3 Comic Reviews
Batman finally meets up with the Red Hood Gang in "Batman" #24 with Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo providing an adventure for a new era with a truly impressive oversized issue.
Astro City #5
Review: Astro City #5
3 Comic Reviews
Kurt Busiek and Brent Anderson bring back the Broken Man in "Astro City" #5, but while this deliberately jumbled story of story fragments and new characters might not be to everyone's taste, it holds up well on a re-read.
X #6
Review: X #6
3 Comic Reviews
"X" #6 kicks off a storyline introducing the Dogs of War, as Duane Swierczynski and Eric Nguyen's crime drama serve up its strongest installment to date.
Shaolin Cowboy #1
Review: Shaolin Cowboy #1
3 Comic Reviews
Don't worry if you never read the original 7-issue run; the new "Shaolin Cowboy" #1 is loony and beautiful, and honestly that's all you need to know with Geof Darrow's long-awaited return to the character.
