Rough month considering Rat Queens, Velvet, Lazarus, Southern Bastards and Veil did not ship as solicited. Naturally my read list is still Image-dominated, but I did manage to read an anomaly of a Marvel title. Just as May was led by the much anticipated returns of Rat Queens and Saga, June was led, of course, by the triumphant return of Sex Criminals as well as a certain promising debut. However, there was one debut this month that was rather sleepy.
- Sex Criminals #6 (Image) 5.0 – Excellent return.
- The Wicked and the Divine #1 (Image) 4.5 – Intriguing debut.
- Cyclops #2 (Marvel) 4.0 – Best X-book in a while.
- Saga #20 (Image) 4.0 – Is the luster fading?
- The Private Eye #7 (Panel Syndicate) 4.0 – Still wishing this was on paper.
- Rise of the Magi #1 (Image) 3.5 – Promising.
- C.O.W.L. #2 (Image) 3.5 – Getting there.
- Red City #1 (Image) 2.5 – See my review here.
- Trees #2 (Image) 2.5 – Oddly, the first issue was better.
- One-Hit Wonder #3 (Image) 1.5 – Speculation buy, what can I say?
Dishonorable Mention: Outcast #1 (Image) 1.0 – I was disconnected during the entire read
