Want to know what readers are saying about the latest comics hitting the stands?  Check it here...


FF #10

"I thought this was a pretty decent issue..." - Flynn the Pirate

"I loved this issue!" - Mike Mercury

"I no longer have any idea what's going on in this book nor why I'm still reading it." - chap22

"Jonathan Hickman does a good job working the characters into believable relationships, most noticeably Reed & Sue Richards and Peter Parker & Ben Grimm." - Veggieeleezy

X-Men Regenesis #1

"Schism was awesome and these two epilogues (referring also to Generation Hope #12) to the miniseries were done quite well. - Flynn the Pirate

"I really liked this issue." - e_galston

"Loved both books. The Iceman scene and the X-Kids scene were my favorites." - avengingtitan

"Regenesis was better than I expected" - fieldy snuts

"Very strong, and a must-read companion piece to Schism I feel." - Punchy

"I thought Regenesis was ok, but it felt like I was reading the last few pages of Schism drawn out over the whole book." - xaraan

"This is a must read for X-fans and those who want to jump on the X-wagon now" - Starlord

Demon Knights #2

"This was... disappointing." - Flynn the Pirate

"Cornell's books essentially swapped quality levels with their second issues." - m0d0k

"So far all the #2's I've read have been pretty bad.  This was the worst though." - avengingtitan

"Meh, I liked it." - chap22

Grifter #2

"This was meh for me.  My poor wildstorm universe." - xaraan

"This book is just weird... a black ops hardass who's all of a sudden all flaky and freaks out about killing?" - fieldy snuts

"There aren't many of us who were actually fans of the old Wilstorm U, but for us, I think these changes are even harder to stomach." - m0d0k

Superboy #2

"A decent issue, I really like Lobdell's voice for Superboy, it's very detached and just different from the norm." - Punchy

"This isn't superboy, this is Tempest from DV8 who happens to have a look and costume like superboy" - fieldy snuts

"This was just bad." - avengingtitan

"It was weaker than the first issue." - alaska1125

The Shade #1

"Is this worth the price of admission?  I certainly think so." - MrBlack

"The comic was good until Deathstroke appeared and for me the book pulled a Batman." - Zechs

"I enjoyed this issue and I really can't wait for the second issue." - Sakie

"I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this issue." - Flynn the Pirate

"I'd say it was the best thing I read this week." - Stephen Day

"I don't know. I read Starman from beginning to end and loved it. This, though...I didn't hate it" - alaska1125

"James and crew remind us of that with an ease that can only come from someone who knows the character inside and out." - Starlord

"I think I would have liked this more with a different artist. The art didn't suit this book at all to me." - ThatGuyRoman

Batman & Robin #2

"I enjoyed it much more than issue number one and have become really excited about the direction Tomasi is taking Damien." - Starlord

"I'm going to give this one more issue, but if the next one doesn't really step things up, I'll be done." - Flynn the Pirate

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
