Couldn’t let this little lot slip though my finicky fingers.

  • The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys #5 (The cozy weirdness has gotten uncomfortably familiar.  And, wait: is that Maxine and Socks at the end?)
  • Sandman: Overture #1 (Elegant, mysterious, and impossibly beautiful.  Neil Gaiman’s got us reading out of the palm of his handsome mythology once again; and the peerless J.H. Williams makes his end of the Endless look so easy–so easy, in fact, that the experience demands one’s going back to admire his complex layouts and otherworldly attention to detail.)
Sandman: Overture #1

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #27 (Another good bit of Turtle fun!  Probably won’t be enough to keep me around past “City Fall,” but certainly worth the run.)
  • Wild Blue Yonder #3 (Another high-energy installment of the year’s biggest blockbuster, this one sporting a spectacular–and perfectly peaceful–double-page spread smack dab in the middle.  I suspect we’ll have more to say about this one.)

  • Saga #15 (Once again, Vaughan and Staples skewer expectations!  And how about that final sequence?  A willful assault, indeed!)
  • X-Men: Battle of the Atom #2 (In the end, one epilogue shy of epic brilliance.  “[R]idiculous schism,” indeed!  The most significant aftermath of this event: figuring out which of the X-books I’ll end up subtracting from my monthly haul as a result of this pointless glossover.)
  • The Fox #1 (A bit of a disappointment, considering the names attached to it.  Had to give it a shot, right?  I’m sure you did, too.  Well, after this unwieldy, unfunny offering, I’m out.  You?)
