Rating: 8

Bongo Comics Free-For-All!

Classic Comic Strip Action & Adventure

DC Kids

Del Rey Showcase

Doctor Solar: Man of the Atom/Magnus: Robot Fighter – Dark Horse is resurrecting the two franchises for ongoing series starting in July and August.  Doctor Solar is an origin tale of sort with an early adventure.  It’s a very good start and definitely has be intrigued.  Magnus is very much a pulp story reminiscent of Flash Gordon and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  There’s a throwback/classic feel to it.

Rating: 7.75

G.I. Joe #155 1/2 – Picking up where the original Marvel series left off this issue bridges the gap between that and it’s continuation in July.  It brought me right back to my childhood and I can’t wait to see what’s to come.

Rating: 8.5

Green Hornet – You can read our original review here.

Iron Man/Nova – Focused squarely at the kids, this sees Iron Man and Nove take on Red Ghost and his apes.

Rating: 7.5

Iron Man/Thor – Iron Man and Thor must deal with strange weather occurrences and a weapon that Stark has built that’s fallen into other hands.

Rating: 7.75

Irredeemable/Incorruptible – You can read our original review here.

Mouse Guard/Fraggle Rock – You can read our extended review here.

Owly and Friends!

the Sixth Gun – A tale of the Wild West from Oni Press that seems to involve a magical gun and some undead goons.  A pretty interesting series, with decent artwork.

Rating: 7.0

Sonic the Hedgehog

Toy Story

War of the Supermen #0 – The prelude to the next big event sees New Krypton going to war with Earth.  The issue not only has the moments leading up to that but also gives a decent explanation of what’s been happening for those who might not know.  An excellent issue, even better since it’s free!
