A new era in Dungeons & Dragons history continues in the second part of “Shadowplague.” Adric Fell and his band of heroes pursue a peculiar breed of zombies into the wilderness… and straight into a standoff between a trapped wagon train and marauding orcs. Their shape-changing foe is hidden in the chaos—but on which side?

Rating: ★★★½☆

Avengers Academy #7
Writer: Christos Gage
Artist: Tom Raney
The Story: This is it: The BIG return of Giant-Man! Founding Avenger Hank Pym has been a scientist, a hero, a disgrace, a convict, and — after a long road of redemption — he’s the headmaster of Avengers Academy. But now, at long last, Pym returns to his greatest role…that’s right, Giant-Man returns in this historic issue! But even with his students at his side, can he stand up to one of the most powerful villains in the Marvel Universe, a man who can become every bit as gigantic as he is?

Rating: ★★½☆☆

MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
One of the Faithful Spoilerites sent in this suggestion for the poll of the week – Animals Fighting! Now while we don’t condone dog fights, cock fights, or other forms of animal cruelty, when the animals in question are fictional, and are already maiming and killing, it seems reasonable enough to toss the little buggers in the ring and let them go at it.
Entering the ring this week are Rocket Raccoon and Dex-Starr!

MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Starman Omnibus Volume 3
In this new, third volume, Starman’s hometown of Opal City is terrorized by Dr. Pip, an eccentric bomber. And with no demands from the mad villain, both Starman and the local authorities are unable to track him down. Also in this volume, Starman teams up with Batman to save the life of reformed villain Solomon Grundy, and readers learn the history of Starman’s enigmatic mentor, The Shade.
