Rasputin, Volume 1 by Alex Grecian

I read this book after reading volume 2 and this is basically the full-on straight story of Rasputin and his bring people to life mojo.

While volume 2 takes place in the present with Rasputin recounting the events of his life, this volume takes place in the past during the Russian thrones demise.

I found it amusing; this historical/mystical angle.

Batman: Gates of Gotham by Scott Snyder

This was an interesting read by two very brilliant minds. Scott Snyder teams up with Kyle Higgins to bring us a story filled with suspense and drama as only Gotham can.

We see various members of the Bat Family come together to help acting Batman, Dick Greyson figure out the new baddy that is reeking all kinds of havoc.

I loved the whole present / past Gotham. As one of the oldest and darkest cities in the DCU it was interesting to see a story take you back to when the original families first built Gotham.

Bombshells Vol. 1: Enlisted by Marguerite Bennett

Loved this whole new take on the DCU ladies. They are seriously kicking some a**. Plus the retro 40’s outfits rock.

This story place during World War II and focuses on our lady heroes fighting the good fight overseas and keeping things turning on the home fronts.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 by Kyle Higgins

Was I entertained? 
Who isn’t entertained by the Power Rangers? “Go, go Power Rangers!” [insert tune here]

Was there drama? 
Well, Rita is still out to mess with Tommy’s head. I’d say that’s drama.

Am I looking forward to the next issue? 
Yes, I’m dying to see when Tommy beats Rita’s mind games.

Ms. Marvel, #1: Super Famous

Was I entertained? 
Not really, I couldn’t get into the characters.

Was there drama? 
It was high school drama (like I really want to revisit that stuff).

Am I looking forward to the next issue? 
Sadly this is where I call it quits. The art was good and don’t get me wrong I love Ms. Marvel. Growing up Carol Danvers was one of my all-time Marvel heroines. But this new Ms. Marvel girl just wasn’t for me.

Mockingbird #1 by Chelsea Cain, Joëlle Jones (Illustrator), Kate Niemczyk (Illustrator)

Was I entertained? 
It started off slow, but you can totally feel a conspiracy building. So, I was very pulled in.

Was there drama? 
Well, that broken window and the zombies do add for some drama.

Am I looking forward to the next issue? 
Yes. What was up with those freaky looking things?

Tokyo Ghost, Vol. 1: Atomic Garden by Rick Remender, Sean Murphy (Illustrations)

The concept was good, the art was okay and the storyline was interesting enough that it merits reading what comes next.

At some points it’s a little too all over the place, but ultimately we have a solid idea worth exploring.
