The Defenders #1 - Even though I've never been really into The Defenders as a team, and I can't ever seem to stay with anything that Matt Fraction writes, I figured I'd give this new series a shot. It was an interesting enough of a read, and it's always nice to see Terry Dodson on pencils. Maybe I'll pick up the next issue.
The Amazing Spider-Man #675 - Is it just me, or are Peter Parker's girlfriends more interesting when they're ex-girlfriends? That was the case for Mary Jane, and now it seems to be the case with Carlie Cooper. Anyway, nothing special about this issue, but this has been such a solid series since Dan Slott took over, that it just fits in as another solid installment.
Action Comics #4 - Maybe my expectations were just too darned high with this title, and maybe I just really wanted to read a good Superman book. However, this series just really isn't living up to what I wanted it to be. I really dug the first issue with the socially conscious Superman who had the world against him, and I was hoping for some more of that. This issue was fine, but it felt like a standard superhero book to me. I'm hoping that Grant Morrison will toss in some of his wild ideas soon.
Detective Comics #4 - This was entertaining enough, but it's definitely the weak link in the current run of Bat titles (with the possible exception of The Dark Knight). I need to cut stuff. This might just fall victim to that.
Justice League International #4 - Speaking of cutting stuff, I might stick around for the final chapter of this current storyline, but I'm somewhat surprised that I got this one. (Maybe because it was a slow week.) It's not bad, and I really like Aaron Lopresti's artwork. It just doesn't have a lot of interesting stuff going on to make me really look forward to the next issue.
