The Rocketeer Adventures 2 - issue 4
First off the bat is a cover that is stunningly beautiful. You'll do a double take in the store when you see this. There are three stories in the issue and each is enjoyable. In particular, one talks about The Rocketeer's adventure in another universe where everything is one gigantic misunderstanding. Very funny stuff and clever. A very well made comic.
Score: 8 out of 10
G.I. Joe : A Real American Hero - Issue 180
This is a very topical comic as the adventure spills into the Comic-Con International and it has some very funny moments. The high-point is when "Optimus Prime" hits on Scarlett. The story moves forward quickly even if there are some strategic things that aren't all that clear. Fun and exciting.
Score: 7 out of 10
Transformers : Robots In Disguise - Issue 7
This comic is filled with lots of little great things that make up a solid comic. There is a major mystery that gives Wheeljack the chance to shine. It has a fun and strange turn in a bar. Many of the characters have interesting little personality quirks. Even the philosophical aspects of the story have poignancy. The weakest link is the artwork which impacts the story's flow.Continued on the next page
