"Beta Ray Bill" Marvel: Technically this is a "King In Black" tie-in but after reading the first issue I'm pretty sure it's actually just Daniel Warren Johnson's stealth Bill mini series. It's a quick read with frenetic action, Daniel expertly gets us caught up with Beta Ray's status and immediately sets him off on a voyage through the stars to [Redacted]. If you aren't reading KIB don't get scared away; this only pays lip service to the event then moves on with Beta Ray's character moments. 7 rain checks out of 10
"The Bequest" Aftershock: Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/TMNT) art is fantastic, detailed, and somehow able to be roundly cartooney but still posses a realism. If You're a fan of "Dungeons and Dragons" or other fantasy RPGs, this book feels ripped from a Tim Seeley tabletop adventure! Our intrepid adventurers are thrust into the modern world only to uncover a magical plot involving dragons, super soldiers, gun running, and magical manipulations. 8 Puff the Magic Dragons out of 10
"Cult Of Dracula" Source Point Press: If you like modern adaptations of Dracula and Satanic Cannibal Sex Cults, you'll probbaly dig this as much as i did!
"Marvel Action Spider-Man" Marvel: This is the perfect book to get a youngster into Spider-Man; it's Peter still in high school with many of his classic villains reimagined as teachers!
