HEY LOOK - a new RUview for you to enjoy! SPOILERS!!!!

Text reviews below - SPOILERS!

Batman #693 - This story just seems of to me, and if Daniel is going to stay on this book for more than just this arc, then consider this book dropped. The art is to cartooney for a Batman book, and never should this issue’s last page be in a Batman book, I do not care who Batman is.

Green Lantern Corps #42 – I am not going to totally spoil this book for you, but although it seems more drastic, this Blackest Night book is just like all the others except obvious swerve is obvious.

Realm of Kings: Imperial Guard #1 – Way to go Marvel, you took 4+ years worth of momentum for your cosmic line and almost killed it with this really weak book. No way should this have been the first Realm of Kings book on the shelves. Just…boring

PunisherMAX #1 – Now I have to find a book to drop. I picked this up thinking “why the hell not?” What a great book. Go buy this book. It is the first time, that I recall, the MAX book completely contradicting the 616, and right now, in the case of the Punisher, that is a good thing.

Dark X-Men #1 – Even knowing before hand who was going to show up, this was a very well written book. Way to respect continuity without getting bogged down.

X-Men Forever #11 – Best issue so far, but this book deserves a better artist.

Cable #20 – Get back to now already!

Deadpool #17 – Really weak issue, maybe the weakest of this series. Its good to showcase Deadpool's strategic skills as many new readers think that he is only a baboon, but the story itself was lame. I am disappointed that Osborne knows already that Bullseye did not kill Deadpool, but I guess that had to happen sooner or later.

Amazing Spider-Man #611 – This is what I’m talking about. Great Deadpool story, fun, funny, action packed! Who was that other guy in the book, I couldn’t tell cause the art sucked. Way to try and be Sam Keith and fail miserably.

Daredevil #502 – Told you last month, obvious trick was obvious. I really do not like this style of art.

X-Force #21 – I am really liking the beginning of Necrosha, if only because it is reminding me who is dead. I had to go Look up where and when Risque died because of this issue.

Fables #91 – First really good issue of this book since the War, I am hoping that Fables is back on track

DMZ#47 – Hi Daddy Issues, how are you today? No, really, why are you not reading this book?

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
