Burgoo

Agents of Dreamland - Caitlín 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.

Batman: Detective Comics Vol. 1: Rise of the Batmen (Rebirth) - James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows, ALVARO MARTINEZ

A solid but not exceptional Batman Family book. Too reliant on swerves, but worth a look.

Green Lanterns, Volume 1: Rage Planet - Sam Humphries, Ethan Van Sciver, Jason Wright, Travis Lanham, Dave Sharpe, Ed Benes, Tom Derenick, Robson Rocha, Jack Herbert, Neil Edwards, Tom Palmer, Jay Leisten, Keith Champagne, Rob Hunter, Mark Irwin, Vincente Cifuentes, Marc Deering, Blond, Geoff Johns

What they aren't really telling you is that this is an much of a Red Lantern book as a GREEN Lantern book.  And the Red Lanterns have XPac heat.  Run away.

Nightwing, Volume 1: Better Than Batman - Tim Seeley, Yanick Paquette, Javier Fernández, Chris Sotomayor, Carlos M. Mangual

Not Better Than Batman.

Binti: Home - Nnedi Okorafor

Another Tor.com home run! A brilliant novella with wonderful unique world building.  Manditory reading.

The Facefaker's Game - Chandler Birch

It feels a bit under-cooked, as if the author's mouth was bigger than his stomach.  Overly ambitious world building brought this one down.

Behind the Throne - K.B. Wagers

This is not going to change anyone's life, but it's a fun gulp of intrigue & action. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
