As usual, text RUviews are below the video.



Batman #694 – DC really wants me to drop this book

Green Lantern Corps #43 – way to ruin the emotional impact of the last issue. Couldn’t even let things be for more than an issue

Amazing Spider-Man #615 – nice new look at the Sandman, but the art sucks. Some one is trying way to had to be Milligan, and failing

Astonishing X-Men #33 – wait, what? The brood are all dead? What about the Brood that was recently in Cable? This would be a great X-men book if it were the only one, but when combined with everything else going on, the continuity makes no damn sense. One real high point is Wolverine and Armor’s banter.

Daredevil #503 – setting up a Kingpin Osborne showdown? NIIIIIIIIICE

Dark Avengers #12 – solid issue, nice Sentry moments. If we combine the last page to Cabal, I cannot wait for the Loki Osborne beat down in Siege.

Hulk #18 – great fucking issue, and since most of you internet people hate for the sake of hating I’m not gonna tell you about this awesome Samson story

Realm Of Kings Inhumans #2 (Of 5) – so, Quicksilver was a Skrull? Some one explain this to me

Thunderbolts #139 – if this is the quality of work that Jeff Parker gave in Agents of Atlas, I can see why that book got the ax. This was better than his first two issues, but wow does he know how to make murderous sociopaths boring as fuck

X-Factor #200 – THIS IS A $5 BOOK MARVEL! Way to go Wade!

X-Men Legacy #230 – not sure how good this story line was for people who didn’t read Gen X back in the day. I am looking forward to Casey’s take on Gambit as a Horseman.

Incorruptible #1 – not the best first issue ever, but does have me wanting more. Again, as with Irredeemable, I can’t see how this can stay an ongoing for too long. But BOOM! Is building up a shared universe nicely.

Hellblazer #262 – something stat started off, as a cool Hellblazer story is becoming a pint by numbers Hellblazer that happens to be set in India

Fables #91 – Blue Fairy is gonna kick your ass

Walt Disney Comics #701 – looking for a gift for a younger niece or nephew get these BOOM! Disney books. Walt Disney, Scrooge, Incredibles, all have solid art and a fun story to read to kids or they can read to themselves. I still have my first comic and its Rocky & Bullwinkle #5, I was 8 when I got it.

Pinocchio: Vampire Slayer – this was a great, fun, creative idea that came together very well. The best part, for me, was that it was set in the original Pinocchio universe, not the Disney version. The creators do a great job of setting it all up. Pinocchio lies then uses his bigger nose as a steak! This book did not disappoint.

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).
