Strange Fruit, Starfire, Lando, & Kaijumax
Strange Fruit #1- A beautifully illustrated and exceptionally well executed first issue from Mark Waid and J.G. Jones. The story focuses on the arrival of an alien visitor crash landing in Chatterlee, Mississippi during the Great Mississipi Flood of 1927 and poses the question of what it would be like if a visitor from another world wasn’t white and was immediately confronted with racial violence in the South.

Secret Wars Main, Planet Hulk, & Infinity Gauntlet
I’m starting to fall behind on these event reviews, mostly because Marvel has unloaded like a bajillion titles as part of Secret Wars. There’s an element of that that I do dislike, simply because it’s the perfect example of these mainstream event saturations that can drain customer’s funds and kill a fanbase. But I’m also having a hard time condemning Secret Wars for this because it’s generally so well executed.
