The Flintstones Vol. 1 - Mark Russell, Steve Pugh

This easily makes up for the failed promises of the other Hanna Barbera adaptations.  Brilliant social satire. It's a Stone Age Family for today and it works!

Batgirl Vol. 1: Beyond Burnside (Rebirth) - Hope Larson, Rafael Albuquerque

Competent, but not particularly compelling. For committed fans only

James Bond, Vol. 2: Eidolon - Warren Ellis, Jason Masters

Ellis' Bond is the best Bond. Read it already!

The Damned, Vol. 1: Three Days Dead - Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt

It just doesn't stand out against the glut of Noir tinged UF released in the last 10 years or so.  YMMV.

Lucifer, Volume 2: Father Lucifer - Holly Black, Lee Garbett

A continuity heavy deep dive into the politics of Hell. Your enjoyment may depend on your knowledge of backstory.

Titans Vol. 1: The Return of Wally West (Rebirth) - Dan Abnett, Brett Booth

This is a fun Bronze age style story that is really all about moving pieces around for future stories. Fun but it won't change your life.

Agents of Dreamland - CaitlĂ­n R. Kiernan

A rich story of Lovecraftian dread mixed with post X-files paranoia. Recommended.

Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies (Rebirth) - Greg Rucka, Liam Sharpe

Rucka is cleaning up after the Nu52, and getting ready to tell some new stories.  It looks promising.

Kings of the Wyld (The Band) - Nicholas Eames

Swords monsters and treasure oh my! Smart, hilarious and fun. Highly recommended.

Superman: Action Comics Vol. 1: Path Of Doom (Rebirth) - Dan Jurgens, Tyler Kirkham, Patrick Zircher

Definitely in the top tier of Rebirth books that I've read. A very entertaining cape book. Recommended.

Dr. Potter's Medicine Show - Eric Scott Fischl

Very dark story about evil alchemists roaming 19th century America. Side shows the hard way. Well written, but not for everyone.

CivilWarLand in Bad Decline - George Saunders

Great biting satire. Unsettling how its dystopian future is rapidly becoming our present.  Recommended.

Britannia - Peter Milligan

It's Sherlock in a horror story set in occupied Britannia.  Not your every day comic, but somehow I couldn't get invested.

Future Quest Vol. 1 - Jeff Parker, Evan Shaner

A great looking book that is lost in its sea of characters. For me a real disappointment.

Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps Vol. 1: Sinestro's Law (Rebirth) - Robert Venditti, Rafa Sandoval, Ethan Van Sciver

I don't know that I've read a comic that feels both over stuffed and stale before.   There's a lot going on here and you need some knowledge of GL continuity to figure it out. Not a good starting place.

Winter of the Gods (Olympus Bound) - Jordanna Max Brodsky

A fun twist on typical urban fantasy.  You might want to start with the first book in the series. RIYL American Gods, Kevin Hearne.
