00:24:58 Justice League #7: Gene Ha can fill in on this book whenever he wants.
00:35:58 Wonder Woman #7: We agree on a lot about this book—especially that Amazons could be nicer.
00:41:41 Amazing Spider-Man #682: Dan Slott ought to write this book as long as he wants.
00:48:37 Avengers: X-Sanction #4: Max sees the flaws in the series but enjoyed it for its light fare.
00:56:18 John Carter: Gods of Mars #1: Sam Humphries story is good, but Ramon Perez’s artwork is astonishing.
01:03:08 Smoke and Mirrors #1: Abracaborebra.
01:08:12 Hoax Hunters #0: In a sea of new titles being published recently, this title is going to have to improve greatly to be noticed.

01:23:37 New Deadwardians #1: We rather enjoyed this bloody book.
01:28:41 Bloodstrike #1: This book is an homage to the 90’s. That isn’t a compliment.

01:42:37 Uncanny X-Force #23: Gut-wrenching. And damn good.
