The Weekly Comic Round Up
Civil War II: The Accused #1– This is a great standalone issue. It takes place in the middle of the Civil War madness, but it shows Daredevil at his best. When I say that I am not talking about the fighting, more about the man in the mask. Who he is and what he stands for. If you are caught up on Civil War then you need to check this one out

Superwoman #1 – I didn’t know what to expect from this book, but was I surprised at how much I liked it. The entire story that is revolving around all the “Super” books is actually pretty amazing. Maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised, but it is a rare thing for some many books to work so well together yet still feel like individual stories.
All Star-Batman #1 – Want to a read a book that is Batman being the most badass Batman he can be? That is this book. Although I will say, I am angry that I need to wait until next issue for the story to continue, it is that good.
New Super-Man #2 – I am not sure what I think about this book yet. I find the main character to be obnoxious, which I realize I am supposed to at this point, but at the same time there are these glimpses of what a deeper character he is. I will definitely keep reading because I feel like the payoff in this book could be huge. Plus that Chinese Bat-Man is awesome and worth the read all by himself (and yes they do actually explain why they are copying the original Justice League).
Books I missed Due to San Diego Comic Con
Civil War II #4 – I have to say I really appreciate what Marvel is doing with Tony Stark in this series. I never like that they constantly turned him into the jerk of the Marvel universe. This series is great and it is raising some important questions about how we as a country need to think about things like national security, profiling, etc. Heavy I know, but read this book and see for yourself.
Suicide Squad Rebirth #1 – a great intro to the Suicide Squad idea, especially if you haven’t seen the film yet. Honestly though the best part of this book is Amanda Waller. Give me a book dedicated to just her and I will buy every issue.
