Batman and Robin #4 – The Red Hood and Scarlett take on Gotham’s criminal element.

Punisher #9 – The Punisher continues to take on the Hood’s c-list team as we learn about Henry’s parentage.

Thor Annual #1 – Seth takes on Thor in an ok story.  It doesn’t hold up to the regular series.

Vengeance of the Moon Knight #1 – I’ve never been the biggest Moon Knight fan.  He always came off as a Batman knock-off, with not enough difference.  I always felt he should of been played off as Batman with real psychosis, and it seems I missed that switch.  This issue surprised me in it’s quality and is getting me to seek out the past few series.

the Walking Dead #65 – The hunters become the hunted with an ending that all I can describe as is beefy and manly.

Dark Wolverine #78 – We’ve seen Daken isn’t much of a team player and Osborn moves to fix his Wolverine’s image problem.

X-Factor #48 – It’s Cortex versus X-Factor as Jamie delivers Doom to Atlantic City.

X-Men Legacy Annual #1 – Two stories setting up future story lines.  Emplate comes looking for a meal and Gambit deals with the Omega Weapon as his past comes to haunt him.
