Seems like it was a female-heavy week here for comic books with 4 of 7 books featuring female lead characters. I didn't get to fully read everything yet, due to my time spent rummaging through the bookstore last night, but I will get full reviews up by the end of the weekend. Also, look for a post very shortly cataloging my finds from my first of many trips to Downtown Books. Click below for First Impressions :
Batman : Streets of Gotham #1 - Not bad, not bad at all. Funny encounter between Harley Quinn and the police, and then HQ and Batman & Robin.
Power Girl #2 - This was really good for the second issue of this series. The scene with Humanite's girlfriend sort of creeeped me out though. Decent backstory for the villain.
GI Joe : Cobra #4 - Things just went from bad to "Wow, I'm dead" for Chuckles. The life of a double agent is harsh, and this book is doing a fantastic job of building up Cobra. Good to see Tomax and Xamot.
Bomb Queen presents All Girl Comics #1 – Oh...My...God. This was horrible. I’m actually angry at how bad this was.
Action Comics Annual #12 – I wasn’t entirely sure that I cared about the origins of Nightwing and Flamebird, but I do now, and it was pretty good.
Supergirl #42 – This issue seemed like it was just moving people into certain positions in anticipation of the next storyline. Not much happened, just a lot of moving around.
Executive Assistant Iris #1 – This issue kicks 12 kinds of ass. I’m hooked.
