  • W.M.D. : Weapons of Mutant Destruction by Pak, Greg,
    ★★★★☆

    Other than Marvel's tendency to excessively waste time and ink introducing and articulating characters over and over and over again, the story is a good one. It's not the most original comic tale(Weapon's X stories are by definition a rehash of older plots) and in fact it's not even the most original tale, period (A prominent sci-fi film is ripped off mercilessly), but the parts are used well so the theft can be overlooked if not forgiven.

  • Batman. by King, Tom,
    ★★★★☆

    The most complete volume in the rebirth continuity so far. Stylistically it's distinctive in both writing and art, and thematically its strong and remarkable for its focus on the non-Batman characters (indeed, most of Batman's presence is felt through narration and flashbacks rather than action/adventure sequences). The weakest parts are the framing sequences that utilize some decidedly out-of-character ideas that undermine the Batman most have come to know and love with juvenile romance.

  • Harley Quinn. by Conner, Amanda,
    ★★★☆☆

    Perfectly serviceable HQ volume - nothing special or remarkable, just the entertainment style you expect from the character and her capable custodians (Palmiotti and Conner).

  • NCIS, Naval Criminal Investigative Service…
    ★★★★☆

    A static season in terms of cast, but a dynamic one in terms of character development. all of the mains are given feature episodes in which to shine and no one is ever lagged or overshadowed in the course of the season, which features several surprising revelations about the cast only hinted at before.

  • NCIS, Naval Criminal Investigative Service.…
    ★★★★☆

    Picking right up where season two ended - and picking up the pieces of the tragic finale that will echo through the season. The third season continues a strong commitment to understated character development with the addition of two new cast members and the introduction of several recurring characters. A worthy continuation to the series.

  • Wolverine vs. the Marvel Universe by Gruenwald, Mark,
    ★★☆☆☆

    Not a new work like most of the entries under the 'vs' umbrella, rather a collection of mismatched and oddly curated reprints covering over two decades with no strong theme and wildly inconsistant art and story quality.
