  • Doom Patrol #2
  • Kill Or Be Killed #3
  • Wonder Woman #8

I really enjoyed the first issue of Gerard Way and Nick Derington’s new take on the Doom Patrol, and hope the second issue keeps things weird. While the first issue featured Robotman, this new one appears to focus on Larry Trainor, aka Negative Man. Introducing the team slowly makes sense as a way to ease new readers into the strange adventures of the Doom Patrol, while also giving long-time fans like a me a chance to see how the creators are approaching these characters.

Kill Or Be Killed is shaping up to be another classic from Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. What’s impressive about this team is their ability to have a familiar style while making each series feel different. This book is radically different from their last big work, The Fade Out, yet it maintains the level of quality we’ve come to expect from them.

DC recently confirmed that artist Nicola Scott will be leaving Wonder Woman after issue 14, which just might be my impetus to drop the book. It’s a good comic, but the story is just moving too slowly for me, even while it is shipping twice a month.
