Green Lantern #12

"The readers get thrown right into the action with the Guardians, the rising Third Army, the mysterious Book of Black and Black Hand and his zombies. It is enthralling for longtime fans, especially those who have been following Green Lantern for years. This book actually still references the events of Blackest Night and Brightest Day even though the rest of the new DC universe has seemingly forgotten these events."

Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan #1

"Aside from the interesting ending, which sets up the rest of the series nicely, the only other thing interesting about Before Watchmen: Dr. Manhattan is its odd cover. Silk Spectre doesn't figure much into the story here in issue #1 so what's she doing on the cover? More importantly, what's up with Manhattan's positioning behind her and his grasp on her? It's almost like an inside joke that's not as subtle as it at first might seem. I'm sure that I'm not the only one that thinks this cover is odd...and slightly offensive in its suggestiveness, especially knowing the usual state of Manhattan's dress. Maybe that's what Silk Spectre standing in front of him is mean to hide... "

Superman #12

"The best thing about Dan Jurgens' return to the pages of Superman wasn't that it was short, but that it was a great nostalgic trip back to the glory days of the Superman stories of the early to mid 1990s when the likes of Jurgens and Tom Grummett were drawing the books. The worst thing about Dan Jurgens' return to the pages of Superman was that it was a nostalgic trip back to the glory days of the Superman storytelling that now feels dated."
