The Star Wars, Avengers AI, Batman and Robin, Earth 2, & Resident Alien
The Star Wars #1– Considering how over played Star Wars is and how we get the same characters churned out in fairly repetitive cycles, this was actually a fairly interesting change of pace. Mayhew’s art is clean and compliments the storytelling while Rinzler has done a pretty solid job on the scripting. It’s like reading an Elseworlds Star Wars, and while the $3.99 price tag isn’t great it actually is a fairly dense read.

Batman Black & White & X-Men Battle of the Atom
Batman: Black and White #1– The only refuge for DC fans like me these days are in these non-continuity creator centered mini projects sprinkled throughout the company. First of all, none of this bullshit New 52 timeline crap where Robin history makes no sense. Secondly, none of the bajillion and one crosshatch Jim Lee armor designs. Finally, just good self-contained stories that don’t require a mega-event crossover.
