Comics of the Week (7/1/09)

Justice League: Cry For Justice #1 (of 7) - after seeing the preview of this one a few weeks ago, I knew I would enjoy it. James Robinson is going a great job on the writing (and he's picking up the regular JLA book soon). Mauro Cascioli's art has an almost painted style to it. The cast is varied and should be a lot of great action.

Secret Six #11 - once again, Gail Simone makes you think while at the same time presenting some brutal villainy in this title. Loving the plot that is include appearances by Artemis and a certain big name hero next issue. Very solid and a must read for me every month (no signs of that changing any time soon).

Solomon Grundy #5 (of 7) - a great way by Scott Kolins to tie in an appearance by Amazo. This guy does villains so well - both in art and writing. Enjoying the mini.

Strange Adventures #5 (of 8) - Starlin is back on pencils, which is good, but the story seems to be dragging along a bit. We're getting close to the final act - I'm hoping for some huge fireworks.

Hmm, I don't get any of these, but I enjoy your comments.

KC, I would highly recommend Secret Six but it can be a little twisted and dark at times. Still, a good villain team book.
