The Amazing Mary Jane #1: Finally the Star

The Amazing Mary Jane #1

The Amazing Mary Jane #1 (Williams, Gomez, Lopez) is a fun opening look on an overdue story. Williams does a great job crafting dialogue that showcases different sides of MJ: confidence, compassion, humor, with the artwork providing solid support. The first issue shows that with this creative team, Mary Jane has the star power to headline her own comic and leaves me interested in seeing more.


Action Comics #1016: Hi Mom, I’m Batman

Action Comics #1016

Action Comics #1016 (Bendis, Kudranski, Anderson) hits a sweet spot of action and fun. Concurrent with Event Leviathan, Action Comics is the much needed break from the bleak seriousness of the event. Readers will be pleased to see that Bendis is having fun while still being at the top of his game. Who doesn’t love a funny Batman?
