The first three are no brainers, but “Skip” will be used when big stories lines have fill in stories, or a series takes a break and a guest writer or artist fills in for the issue. Obviously if the issue is worth reading it will receive a “Buy” or “Read”, but honestly most of the time it will get a “Skip”. Without further ado here’s my very long list.
Ultimate Spider-Man # 150 – Read – Don’t let the thickness foul you they’re just reprinting a summer special that’s way better than the issue itself is.
Uncanny X-Force # 2 – Read – Not as good as the first issue and the story is progressing aggressively.
Black Widow # 8 – Buy – If you’ve been following the story line, finish it. But be weary of the next issue.
The Invincible Iron Man # 32 – Buy – If you’re not reading it, you should be.
Secret Avengers # 7 – Read – Not great and it really broke from the pace the first six issues had.
Shadowland: Power Man # 4 – Skip – If you read the first three just call it good and wait till the ongoing.
Thor: The Mighty Avenger # 6 – Buy – Hell buy two so maybe they won’t cancel it. Seriously, it’s one of the best books out there.
Astonishing Thor # 1 – Pass – Great art, but nothing else.
Thunderstrike # 1 – Pass or Buy – If you want a true 90’s comic buy it, but that might be the reason others will pass. Also Neil called it!
Fantastic Four # 585 – Buy – Not nearly as good as the previous issue and the serious may have gone a predictable route finally, but time will tell.
Secret Warriors # 22 – Buy – The art is still terrible, but the story is getting really good!
Detective Comics # 871 – Buy – Seriously you should already have bought it.
Batman and Robin # 17 – Pass – There’s nothing top tier about this book which is sad since everyone credited on the book is!
Batman Beyond # 6 – Pass – Again, just wait for the ongoing. Nothing happens that matters and it ends more predictably than an episode of the show.
Batwoman # 0 – Pass – Wait till the first issue, great art though.
Action Comics # 895 – Buy or Pass – If you’ve been following the series… buy it, if not this is a horrible jumping on point.
Skullkickers # 3 – Pass – I’ve read all three issues this week and I give the entire series a pass!
Savage Dragon # 166 – Pass – People die, but then the series has never held the ramifications of death with high regard.
The Traveler # 1 – Buy – Did you read the review? Buy it!
Green Hornet # 10 – Skip – I hadn’t realized that I didn’t read issue nine yet and it didn’t seem to matter any.
Vampirella # 1 – Pass – Not a good start to the series and low quality art to boot!
Route Des Maisons Rouges # 2 – Pass – Beautiful art, but much of anything else.
Wow! What a huge week of books, now go forth and read!
