Rom MeyersThe Strain: Night Eternal #1 (Dark Horse)
I fell off this series in the first volume and hadn’t looked at it since. Picked this up because of the creative team. Great art, good writing, I think I’m back in.

Rom MeyersHexed #1 (Boom)
I really liked the art and the coloring, and the story actually wasn’t bad! I have to say, I enjoyed this enough to want to read the next one too. The cover by Emma Rios was a great bonus too.

Rom MeyersCaptain Victory and the Galactic Rangers #1 (Dynamite)
Joe Casey is the perfect writer to make a pretty standard Kirby story kick into over drive and flip it on its head. Great art teams and an interesting premise for the character. Check this out.

Rom MeyersThe Devilers #1 (Dynamite)
I wanted to like this more than I did. It’s not a bad first issue, but the art and coloring are just serviceable and it detracts from the story. It was fine, but not a must read.

Rom MeyersThe Amazing World of Gumball #1 (Kaboom!)
I’m not sure who this series is for. It’s fun art, silly story, but nothing bad. I’m not familiar with the cartoon but if I was I could see enjoying this a lot.
