Letters by Sal Cipriano
Covers by Alex Sanchez, Butch Guice, Michael Adams, Juan Doe

Release Date: August 3, 2016
Cover Price: $3.99

In The Beginning is a great title for this particular issue. Battlestar Galactica #1 takes us back to the original series’ characters and their quest to find the legendary thirteenth colony known as Earth! But this is a tale that takes place between the episodes, exploring new territory. Quite literally!

This premiere issue starts off in crisis mode. An unexpected turn of events forces our “ragtag fugitive fleet” to take action most desperate. But as survival is their main objective, Commander Adama orders the others to follow closely as they all attempt to brave what few others would!

X-O Manowar #12X-O Manowar #12
Written by Robert Venditti
Pencils by Cary Nord
Colors by Moose Baumann
Letters by Dave Lanphear
Cover by Mark Djurdjevic & Juan Doe
Editor: Warren Simmons, Josh Johns
Valiant Entertainment
Release Date: April 17, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

X-O Manowar #12 is packed with goodness. Unfortunately, it’s a little on the confusing side. Granted, I haven’t been reading this book, but even with the recap page, I found myself a little lost.

Robert Venditti writes a pretty solid comic. But, as I stated before, I found myself a little lost with this issue. On the plus side, I did enjoy the issue and will now go back and grab the trade and get caught up on the title so that I can have a better understanding as to what’s going on. This issue has75% a lot of reveals in it, which is nice to get so much payoff in one single issue. The writing is good, in fact, really good. I just wish there was a little more recap in the story itself. However, it is packed packed with action, mystery and general great super hero action.

I honestly don’t know how I waited a whole month for G.I. Joe #2. But, I’m glad I did. Wait, I’m not glad that I WAITED, I’m glad that the moment is here and I got to read it. Issue #3 comes out next week, right? RIGHT?!?!

Fred Van Lente is quickly becoming my favorite writer. I don’t know how I missed his awesomeness all these year. And for that, I apologize. Now, I’ll be making up for it. Ladies & Gentlemen, G.I. Joe is BACK! BACK to its comic greatness. BACK to the stories that we all imagined while we played with the toys when we were kids. Remember a couple of years ago when we were all so pleasantly surprised when we watched G.I. Joe: Resolute? Yeah, it’s like that.

SifSif
Written by: Kelly Sue Deconnick
Cover by: Travel Foreman
Art by: Ryan Stegman
Colors by: Juan Doe
Marvel Comics
Price: $3.99
Release Date: April 21, 2010

So have you been missing a strong stoic female presence in the Marvel universe? Well Marvel has answered your call with its Sif one-shot. This is the closest to a threat to Wonder Woman that Marvel has ever had. I know that I definitely want more and hope that there is at least a mini-series in the works. I really enjoyed this one-shot and really hope everyone checks it out. Plus it has another one of my favorite characters in it, Beta Ray Bill.

Basically what happens in this issue is that Beta Ray Bill comes to Earth in search of Thor in order to help him with a rather difficult predicament. He and his love cannot get their ship back because it has locked them out in order to preserve their lives, but only an Asgardian can defeat the foe. Well being that Thor is rather busy at the moment dealing with other things, Sif offers her service to Bill. While this is a very simple and predictable story with an easily formulaic story structure, it is still a ton of fun and very well done. I am extremely impressed by Kelly Sue Deconnick‘s grasp on the characters and their voices.
