Listen up all you longtime comic book readers here on the site, this is your opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions about this week's newest comic books. Each week I'll be posting some quick bullet reviews of the titles currently on my pull list and anything else I happen to pick up while I'm in my LCS. I'm only one person and obviously not reading everything so to make this feature as all-encompassing as possible anyone else that wants to participate can. All you have to do is the following:

1: Write a short 1-paragraph review of the current titles you read that week.
2. Email me your review.
3. Keep spoilers to a minimum and be sure to include your 5-star rating!
4. Include your CBM User name/Twitter handle/Blog/Etc. if you have one

That's it. And things aren't limited to just the titles that are not on my Pull List. You want to voice your opinion on the latest issue of Batman from Scott Snyder or The Amazing Spider-Man from Dan Slott? Covering some creator owned titles over at IDW or Dark Horse or maybe you're reading one of the Mark Millar books? If you've got something to say about what you're reading then feel free to send your reviews my way .

Daredevil #21 Mark Waid(w) Chris Samnee (a)
Paolo Rivera(cvr)



The fight with Coyote and The Spot has apparently wrapped up but there's still a ton of questions remaining about who's the shadowy figure(s) after Matt Murdock. The debut of the Superior Spider-Man in the last page sets the stage for the next arc which should prove very interesting. Once again, the tag team of Waid and Samnee deliver on one of Marvel's more consistent titles.


All New X-Men #4 Brian Michael Bendis(w) Stuart Immonen (a)
Stuart Immonen (cvr)



If you don't like a lot of dialogue in your comics then this WAS NOT the issue for you. You really get inside Cyclops head as he comes to terms with the fact that the original X-Men are in present times and comes face-to-face with a young Jean Grey. A setup issue for sure the stage was nicely set for the title to delve into a number of plot lines from this point forward.


Thor: God of Thunder #3 Jason Aaron (w) Esad Ribic (a)
Esad Ribic (cvr)


The cross-time quest for Gorr the Godbutcher may be wearing thin after 3 issues. A villain who's predominantly remained off screen and in the shadows so far, knowing so little about someone that has apparently plagued Thor throughout the majority of his long life is somewhat frustrating. So far, the story hasn't really progressed much from the first issue and while its obvious Aaron is in it for the longterm endgame, you can only dangle the carrot in front of readers for so long before they grow bored. Still, a simple mention of Mt. Olympus has my hopes high for a cameo from another Godking prodigal son. Ribic's art remains top-knotch as ever.



X-Men: Legacy #3 Si Spurrier (w) Tan Eng Huat(a) Mike del Mundo (cvr)


The first issue of this series had me hooked and was the title I found the most impressive coming out of the MarvelNOW! starting block. But the quirkiness is steadily ramping up from issue-to-issue and I'm afraid things may become TOO weird for me if the series keeps trending in this direction. With Legion set to be confronted by Wolverine and his X-Men team (can we go back to Gold and Blue team please?) things make take turn towards normalcy....hopefully.


Nightwing #15 Kyle Higgins (w) Eddy Barrows(a) Eddy Barrows (cvr)


Dick Grayson's world is crashing down around him and it couldn't possibly make for a better read. A Death of the Family tie-in it's the Joker behind the tragedy and financial precipice Dick now finds himself facing. Eddy Barrows knocked this issue out the park!

Alot of good comics out lately, I hate that Marvel is releasing alot of comics more then twice a month, lol, I cant keep up. I mean X-Men #4 is out already, the first one was released a few weeks ago. I wish they would just release once a month like DC.

And whats up with Uncanny Avengers? Its always delayed!

Death Of The Family has been really good too.

Anybody read Catwoman? I loved the first 12 issues or so with Judd Winick writing. But Nocenti's Catwoman is garbage! I cant wait for a new writer!

@Wildaniel: yeah especially last week when they released a shit ton of their titles! And while double shipping sux i cant complain much cuz i am really enjoying double shipping titles such as all new xmen and avengers

And i think cassaday is notorious when it comes to delays so thsts probably why we just got uncanny avengers 2

Death of the family is [frick]ing amazing

And i havent read catwoman at all!
