Batman #120 (DC Comics) – The new creative team has grounded the character in some ways focusing on a murder possibly committed by members of Batman Inc. With a reminder of Bruce Wayne’s misfortunes as well, it’s been a nice change from the years of over the top bad guys.

Chicken Devil #4 (AfterShock) – The series has been over the top violence and a hell of a lot of fun.

Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic focusing on Elektra’s version of Daredevil. A piece or her past is haunting her and now she’ll need to go against Kraven the Hunter!

Dark Knights of Steel #4 (DC Comics) – The series has been a fantastic “Elseworlds” type story taking our familiar heroes and villains and putting them in a world of sword and sorcery. The various machinations as kingdoms jockey towards war has been intriguing.

Fantastic Four: Reckoning War Alpha #1 (Marvel) – What sounds like a pretty big event is kicking off!

The Goon #14 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is always an entertaining time. There’s a twisted Popeye like fun about the series which continuously delivers amazing art, laughs, and most importantly, fun.
