Avengers Academy 11 is the second of two issues this month! Yusss! More Strange, Wasp and Korvac putting these meta-kids through their paces in the school of hard knocks. Still manages to always be an excellent read.

To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what in the sweet hell is going on in Avengers: The Children’s Crusade – Young Avengers but it somehow ties into the main Crusade, as well as reveals the very first adventure the Young Avengers took before their first series? Also, Fear Itself? Color me confused but overjoyed to read anything Young Avengers.

Brightest Day 22 and the earth is pissed! Heroes are turning to dust (though probably not dying…right?), Deathstorm is making the 90s happen and the protector shows her or his face finally! Well, if the solicits don’t lie anyways! Weird, fun and I’m definitely going to be re-reading this once it’s all said and done to see if I’ve missed anything along the way.

DCU Legacies 10 is the end of the series with Infinite Crisis fast approaching! In spite of a few glaring continuity errors, this effort to condense the history of the DCU has been a noble one. Blue Beetle v. Max Lord it the final backup feature here & it’ll be just as ugly as usual, I assume…

Fear Itself: Book of the Skull! Red Skull is HUNGRY, y’all. He and his daughter are up to no good in this prologue to the Marvel summer event. Red Skull’s WWII secret goings-on pave the way for Sin’s horrific revival of…something dark and wicked. Come on, Marvel! Make my wallet compete with Flashpoint!

Generation Hope 5 give Hope and her backup dancers some much-needed processing time after discovering their mutant abilities and the events of Second Coming. Cable’s gone and Hope’s future is fully in her hands.

But soft, what light from yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Mindfield 5 is the sun. Mindfield is J.T. Krul at his best and it’s a shame this has fallen by the wayside. It might be best to wrap this up as a mini-series, call it volume one and return to the series some day later since his DC work has taken all his time. Really fun psi ops/spy comic here though, read it if that’s a genre you dig!

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents 5 puts the spotlight on Toby (MENTHOR?!) as some of the Spider and T.H.U.N.D.E.R. mysteries are revealed. Mind-bending goodness from another writer signed to a different company now! Yeesh.
