Comics of the Week (8/5/09)

Justice League: Cry For Justice #2 (of 7) - I am very much loving this mini. Part is the art by Mauro Cascioli. The other is James Robinson's writing which he'll be carrying on when he moves over to the Justice League of America monthly soon. I like the character mix, the interplay and even Robinson's little text pieces in the back about why he chose certain characters for the grouping and what he hopes to do with them. Great insight.

Secret Six #12 - love the revelation about Jeannette and what Deadshot does when faced with Wonder Woman. A good issue all around as Gail knows both this team and the Amazing Amazon (which she also writes).

Solomon Grundy #6 (of 7) - the penultimate issue of this mini has a knockdown fight and a return of a lot of the guest stars. This is kind of one of those mindless summer blockbusters - you just go with the flow and enjoy the matchups.

Strange Adventures #6 (of 8) - Starlin lets us into the mind of the Weird and it is exactly what you would expect...weird. I kind of wish this mini had been a bit shorter as it does drag at times. Still, a nice character mix.
