    Rachel Rising #3

    A mere three issues in, Rachel Rising has already advanced beyond a simple focus on the mystery surrounding the title character's death and rebirth. It's a book suitable to be read by anyone in search of a thrilling and eerie story.

    SUNDAY SLUGFEST: Uncanny X-Men #1

    Starting over with issue number one, this is a new beginning for Uncanny X-Men. Following the events of Schism, Scott Summers is solidifying his leadership over the mutants who remained on Utopia and reaffirming his commitment to protecting what's left of mutantkind. That doesn't mean, however, that Scott is planning for life on Utopia to be business as usual. He's set up the "Extinction Team," an elite team of mutants dedicated to protecting humanity -- while making sure they know to fear them.

    Throughout all the topsy-turvy plotting, Spencer maintains the knack for social commentary that, since day one, has catapulted The Infinite Vacation from fun to relevant. As good science fiction is supposed to do, all of the fantastical elements here cleverly allude to issues faced in our real world society.

    Atomic Robo and the Ghost of Station X #2

    As I read more and more of Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener's Atomic Robo , it becomes less and less of a surprise that each subsequent installment ends up being very good.
