push comics

Things go well with psychic spies, Latino heroes, legendary writers, ancient villains, forgotten stories and more, including the tragic end of "Final Crisis," a good look at "Buckaroo Bonzai" and more.

Things go badly despite three jumps ("Blue Marvel," "Prometheus," "House of M: Civil War") because of Harry Osborn and Shilo Norman getting mixed up and some dry reads dragging down the curve.

Despite the unused cold gravy of vengeance, the week wins big with gunfire on multiple continents, laughing at a "Brand New Day," a finer future with fists, confusion and more to start off Kwanzaa.

Be thankful for a week like this, where many issues demand recognition for greatness, brilliant minds bring comics to market and even New Krypton and old Asgard have something worth saying.
