Rom HeadshotProtocol Orphans #1 (Boom)
A lot of back story and not a ton of actuall story. Art was ok, not a bad premise but nothing that made me care that much.

X-Men Gold #1 (Marvel)
I don’t know what I was expecting from this book but there is one “new” story and then some semi-reprints. Not terrible but not worth $6.

Clown Fatale #1 (Dark Horse)
Look, I like clowns with big boobs as much as the next guy but there is a line. This was terrible, but the art wasn’t. I don’t care what happens, just make it stop.
