What a great week for comics so far!
Recently I've been taking to going through them alphabetically, and last night was great.
Age Of Ultron - 10A.I. - Seems like a great conclusion/starting episode. A very introspective Pym issue that wraps up Age of Ultron and bridges to the next thing (which I guess is AI?)
All New X-Men - 13 - Don't want to give away who shows up on the last couple of pages.
All-Star Western - 21 - A major changing point that seems pretty exciting to me to see where this goes.
Aquaman - 21 - Nothing to say.
Batman - Superman - 1 - So glad to see a new Pak series. Pretty good start. Don't want to say more.
Batman: The Dark Knight - 21 - This storyline sort of went out with a whimper, but I really liked the last couple of pages.
Broken - 1 - I can't decide of I love or hate the art in this thing. It's sort of like Batman meets Jennifer Blood, apparently.
Captain America - 8 - I loved this. A little bit of the cliche "brainwashing" bit, and then just a whopped of an ending. The intro to the letters column reminded me a lot of the walking dead, opening up with, "Holy Shit, can you believe that!", or something similar.
Daredevil - 27 - Wow. I hadn't even thought to think about how issues 1-27 is pretty much one grand arc. This was a very satisfying conclusion.
Fury MAX - 13 - This also pretty much went out with a bang, although I did like where one storyline concluded (that of the senator and his wife). End of the series here.
Gambit - 14 - Not much to say here. It involves fairies.
Guardians of the Galaxy - 4 - Loved this. I really like the humor in this series, as well as Tony Stark, who, spoiler

Alphabetically, not a bad idea. I usually read 'em in what excites me the most/relates to one another (so all Ultimate titles are read together)
Age of Ultron 10A.I I liked the story, it gives Pym a new future so to say. Btw, we haven't talked about it but FWIW I also liked AoU's ending. Yes, stuff was retconned, and yes it could've been told in less than 10 issues, but the end was interesting in all the different new scenarios in the various universes.
All-New X-men 13 Anyone slightly creeped out by all the people semi-hitting on young Jean Grey?
Wolverine & the X-men 32: I'm finally caught up with this series, thanks to those who continue to plug it. A fun little read focussing on the craziness at the new Hellfire school.
Yet to read: Young Avengers 6, Cap #8, Hawkeye 11, Fury Max 13, Batman - Superman 1.

In no particular order, some of my thoughts:
Captain America: Seriously, the character who shows up at the end is the worst. The Worst.
Daredevil: This was pretty awesome, and I love that for once, the good guy is the one with the upper hand going in, and Daredevil just wrecked those guys.
Superman/Batman: I didn't love this, but I'll give it another issue to hook me. I really like Greg Pak (so much so that I'm going to give his Action Comics run a try in September), but this wasn't his finest outing.
Hawkeye: What's left to be said that hasn't been said already? Read this book.
Wolverine and the X-Men: Quentin Quire is officially my favorite character in all of comics, something I never thought I'd say about a relic of Grant Morrison's run on the book.
