The Boys #49
Published by: Dynamite Entertainment
Written by: Garth Ennis
Art by: Russ Braun

The part with the Homelander talking to himself was pretty creepy. Braun’s a capable Roberston-clone, but I’d love to see Darick Robertson back on this title.

Baltimore: The Plague Ships #5
Published by: Dark Horse Comics
Written by: Christopher Golden & Mike Mignola
Art by: Ben Stenbeck

I’m rereading Baltimore: The Steadfast Tin Soldier right now, the novel from which this series comes. The idea of the comics is to fil in some of the blanks in the story thats presented in the novel. The Plague Ships did a decent job, showing more of Baltimore’s adventures but it wasn’t as good as I had hoped. Here’s hoping the 2nd mini next year does better.

Warriors Three
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Bill Willingham
Penciled by: Neil Edwards

Really nice look back at the early days of the Warriors Three. Willingham is doing a good job giving these three some spotlight.

Generation Hope #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Kieron Gillen
Art by: Salvador Espin

Kind of boring issue. The series is already annoying with all this “Hope is savior” thing. It’s kind of tiring and distracting.

Freedom Fighters #4
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti
Penciled by: Travis Moore

This is turning into a good little title. There’s alot going on, but Gray and Palmiotti do a good job of handling it all. There’s an element of “what the heck is happening” but it’s not overwhelming and just enough to keep us on the edge of our seats.

JSA All-Stars #13
Published by: DC Comics
Written by: Matthew Sturges
Penciled by: Howard Porter

Huh? The Cyclone story was odd enough. Since when does Maxine have nanites? But the rest of the story about the rest of the All-Stars in space defending a planet was really odd. That just skipped all over the place and just feels like filler.

Daredevil #512
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Andy Diggle & Antony Johnson
Art by: Marco Checchetto

Good epilogue to the Shadowland saga. It wraps everything up just enough and provides story launching points for the rest of the cast well setting things up for the incoming new “Man Without Fear”. Also provides the launching point for the upcoming “Daredevil Reborn”.

Ant-Man & Wasp #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written and drawn by: Tim Seeley

Good issue. The banter between O’Grady and Pym is great to read. O’Grady is funny. The little things make this issue.

Captain America: Patriot #4
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Karl Kesel
Art by: Mitch Breitweiser

Good last issue to the CA: Patriot story. Kesel did a good job spotlighting one of the lesser known guys that wore the Cap suit during the time Rogers was on ice.

Iron Man/Thor #2
Published by: Marvel Comics
Written by: Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning
Penciled by: Scot Eaton

An interesting premise. The High Evolutionary wants to create a new God for the 21st Century. It’s a good plot that fits with the two Avengers, one representing the old gods and one representing science. Mostly explanation, but DnA craft a good tale that brings the two together naturally.
