There are days when I could look at Steve Epting drawing cars for ever. From the new Velvet



So! Avengers Standoff Omega gives us a brand-new character!


How will people react?

Like in All-New Wolverine?

Or Insexts?

Rick And Morty #13 explores lines of morality, deceit and trust. I reckon it wants in on a Civil War tie-in.


Demand for real estate is making buyers and renters a lot less fussy than they used to be. Postal #12 explores the new tourist gentrification-in-progress.


Faith #4 expands its franchise. Though I’m not sure how any teen hacker can be better than a movie teen hacker. They can hack all the internets at the same time!


Imperium #15 makes a lot of fuss over some pretty screen savers.

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1 stretches across the generations. All you need to know is right here.

G.I. Joe x Street Fighter #3

The backs of alligators make very odd noises in G.I. Joe x Street Fighter #3

GB International #4

Ghostbusters International #4 sees how fame interferes with everyday dogooding. You know Russell Brand would do so much more good work if he wasn’t constantly dealing with fans doing,… what was it?

What does the gorgeous girl do to the guy, Howard Stark? Seriously, is this you having the talk with Tony in International Iron Man #2?

Image (3) Harley Quinn and Red Tool certainly know what he’s talking about. But when you go out for a handcuffed date for a hot dog it’s inevitable. Jokes are impossible to avoid.

Image (16)

Even Doctor Strange joins in. Okay, enough with the innuendo. Time for the straight sex. Okay, not straight, but you know what I mean.

Thank you Sex Criminals. And what it was intended for in the first place…

Image (4)

Secret Six gives us a foursome that wishes to number five…. because we know where this ends up.

Image (24)

Spider-Woman gets #reallifesuperhero problems – or opportunities. Depends on your perspective.

Batman knows the potential of such things in Justice League.

And while Marguerite Bennett may be mastering her own innuendoes in Angela, Queen Of Hel…
Image (11)

In Insexts, she just lets it all hang out.

HFN_Issue1Clean_19_CLRHyper Force Neo #1 takes its victories where it gets them.

Micronauts #1

Micronauts #1 makes a case for more environmental consideration when wielding personal weapons of mass destruction.

Sins of the Wreckers #4

While Transformers: Sins of the Wreckers #4 seem to have no such reticence.



X-Files #1

X-Files #1 makes its big return and finds conspiracies on the duty roster. It’s always in the details, remember?

Image (5)Grayson never falls far from the tree. But it’s “amazing ” toys…


Alfred looks rather pleased with getting his old hand back in Batman #51 – and there’s a little hand waving, as it were, in how exactly how that was achieved…Image (10)…but I get the feeling that someone in Saga might like a little consultation on that matter.

Image (14)

Everything’s coming up Darkhold over at Carnage, with Marvel’s first gay lead character Victoria Montesi looking for a much bigger revival on the way…Image (15)An origin for Mahatma Doom – one of the monks who treated the scarred Doctor Doom and saw him place that mask upon his head – and the only one who survived, one of a number of wonderful stories  from The Last Days Of Magic.

Image (18)It’s not just that Moon Girl made an aggressive weapon out of such bric-a-brac – but that she actually managed to find a Simon Says device in this day and age. Oh also? The best ending ever. Even better than Angela. Played for and got.

Old Man Logan hits The Time Traveller’s Wife as he meets his future wife as a young child. Makes the Jean Grey relationship look positively healthy in comparison.Image (23)

Well, she sounds like the Enchantress. Hellcat AKA Patsy Walker finds the font of villainous motivation.

Wynonna Earp #3

Wynonna Earp #3 gets her multiversities mixed up….

Strawberry Shortcake #1

Strawberry Shortcake #1 plays up the stereotype that a woman’s place is in the kitchen. Well, she does rock the surname…

Image (25)Either that or protecting an interplanetary Rebellion prison anyway. Princess Leia sports quite the determined attitude in Star Wars. And, despite the thick protective clothing, a rather prominent thigh gap. Normally you need a different type of dress sense for that.

Exactly, courtesy of Black Canary, and even they don’t….



And as Batgirl makes to leave, Burnside is kept in good hands….unnamed

Original graphic novel Wet Moon Vol 1 explores drink and draw etiquette…

So! What comics did you read today? And no one use Game Of Thrones as an excuse. Warren?


Injection knows…
