Atlas & Axis #1 (Titan)
Lovely art and wonderful storytelling. This was a fun and refreshing first issue.

Ninak vs Valiant Universe #1 (Valiant)
A fun start to a mini-series that will make any fan of Valiant excited. Not a jumping on point, but good for established fans.

Old Man Hawkeye #1 (Marvel)
I’m actually into more of the “Old Man Logan” universe and I liked this first issue. I want to read more.

Dejah Thoris #0 (Dynamite)
This is a fine setup to a series but the art left me feeling lacking. I wish it looked better, it would have helped hook me.

X-Men Gold Annual #1 (Marvel)
A perfectly fine annual but nothing I would say you have to read. Good if you are already invested in the X-Men books right now.
