SIDEWAYS #2 for me along with KONG ON THE PLANET OF THE APES #5.

The Kong/POTA crossover is well worth a read, folks!

Shawn, what did you make of SIDEWAYS?

I derived some mild enjoyment from the first issue, but like so many comics today (not all!), you really feel like you want to wait for the trade. Not much happened in the first issue, although I like the carefree attitude of the character.

Robbie,
I liked it. I think all of the New Age of DC Hero books so far seem kind of like "place setters" for me so I think the pace of the first issues will be a little slow. I like the look and the feel of the character (very Spider-Man to me) but I hope it picks up with this issue. I feel that these new books have a very Marvel-vibe, maybe because of the method that they're being produced or maybe they because seem to be Marvel riffs to me (Terrifics-FF, Damage-Hulk, Sideways-Spider-Man) but as $2.99 monthly books, I'm willing to give them a few issues to establish themselves.

Good point. I did buy TERRIFICS and DAMAGE, too. I agree with your point!

THE TERRIFICS certainly seems like it's going to be a fun series. As long as it's fun I don't mind it being derivative.

Lots of Jeff Lemire recently:

The Terrifics
Gideon Falls
Doctor Star

Very enjoyable books, though my current Lemire favourites are Black Hammer and Royal City.

According to Comichron, THE TERRIFICS was the most reordered book of March. It appears to be a hit!

I did pick up the first two issues of JR Jr's SILENCER. Nothing to new but I did enjoy them.

Unfortunately JR Jr only does the interior art up to # 3 (#'s 4 - 5 is Viktor Bogdanovic) - JR Jr does do the covers though.

I really enjoyed Silencer but it's definitely the art that's the draw for me.

Not bad, but I miss the presence of Reed and Sue almost as much as Johnny and Ben do. That "must be in the same universe" thing in #3 was weird, but it seems Mostly Harmless. I'm hoping this series makes way for a proper FF book soon, but I'm in for the current ride.

I hope we get an FF book by 2021, the sixtieth anniversary of their debut.

I got some back-issue X titled comics recently, all from the '90s, but not sure if this is the place to write about them. Really liked some, really hated a couple of others in the extreme.

My next buy is going to be the color Stowaway book. A special Fantastic Four book of some sort with new material (at least in part) would be a very good idea.

I stopped reading BACK TO THE FUTURE comics. I feel they went to the well once too often. I feel that less is more as far as that franchise is concerned, and that by publishing so many BTTF titles, they are taking away from a brilliant franchise that had a stellar, short run.

Mister Miracle #7
Wildstorm: Michael Cray #6

Maestros #5 (a "reorder," although they never ordered it in the first place, as my LCS didn't get it when it came out even though it's on my pull list)
