There are some very compelling aspects of this book. Mostly the art. I like the idea, but the execution of the script and writing did not grab me. I’m going to give it a few more, but I wanted more from this.

Shadow Show #1 (IDW)
I don’t know if every issue will work as well as this first one, but this was great. Amazing art, great story telling. I want to read more.

Scarlet Spiders #1 (Marvel)
I hope I’m not the only one enjoying all the Spider-Verse stuff. So far a cool spin off miniseries to the main event. I’m all in for this.

Gotham by Midnight #1 (DC)
Frankly, Ben Templesmith’s art lately has been way too scratchy and abstract for me to follow well. This was far more refined and smooth than I was expecting and it worked perfectly for the story. Really good first issue, I want to read more.

Planet Gigantic #1 (Action Labs)
I really liked the art and the story is fun, exciting and compelling. I want to read more of this and see where it goes.
