Rom HeadshotStar Wars Rebel Heist #1 (Dark Horse)
A good setup with a lot of familiar and fun touchstones to read, but the art is pretty inconsistent.

The Dream Police #1 (Image)
A interesting premise but a mediocre execution. Ill probably read the next issue and it’s a slow week so check it out but must you? Probably not.

Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Marvel)
At $6 this is a lot for what you get but you still get a lot. This is exactly what you would expect which is not bad at all.
Rating: BUY IT

Bad Dreams #1 (Red Five)
I really liked the art and the story was enough to make me want to read more. If you have a pre-teen kid, probably a good book to read with them too.
