Lots of good stuff this week. Most I'll read eventually.


Thanos Rising #1
All-New X-Men #10
Superior Spider-Man #7
Action Comics #19
Guardians of the Galaxy Infinite Comics #3 (free)

At the risk of sounding like Homer Simpson when he was a food critic, I give everything I read today nine thumbs up.

All-New X-Men, Thanos Rising, and Superior Spider-Man were all awesome in their own ways. Thanos was weirdly moving in depicting his birth and childhood, and the art was gorgeous. All-New X-Men had some amazing moments and some real comedy in the midst of Cyclops announcing his Xavier School and making his pitch to Jean Grey School students to change their place of mutant matriculation. Plus a neat cliffhanger - it can't be the person everyone's expecting switching schools (Jean). Superior keeps pushing the envelope. The Peter Parker commentary, especially with the visual on the last page of Superior was hilarious.

Speaking of hilarious, I've never cared for or read a Deadpool but I tried Deadpool #7 because Brian Posehn co-wrote it and it's set in the Marvel '80s with Tony Stark and "Demon in a Bottle". One of the funniest comics I've read in years.

Action Comics was the low end of the batch I read, and that only means it was merely quite good. Andy Diggle one and only issue had a very strong Lois and a compelling Lex Luthor with a nasty new super villain plot to destroy Superman. The WTF cover was a big dumb swerve however. So long, Diggle. Action gets my lowest rating this week: seven thumbs up.

Dc comics

Detective comics #19 which is also the the 900th issue of detective comics.


Age of Ultron #4
Superior Spider-Man #7
Indestructible Hulk #6
Winter Soldier #17

Enjoyed pretty much everything I picked up this week, although Winter Soldier is starting to drag a bit without any real supporting cast.

I got the feeling with Superior #6 that we were really beginning to move toward the endgame for Otto, issue #7 really ramped things up in that regard.

I actually gave up on Deadpool a couple issues ago. I have an almost complete run going back to the Joe Kelley series, but ever since Posehn and co. took over, it's been pretty dreadful. If you thought number 7 was good, though, maybe I'll give it another shot.
