Or – “I Suspect A Clearing Of The Decks For the Next Incarnation…” As long as there have been superheroes, there have been the superheroes who are deities of one sort or another.  But seldom has anyone really delved into what the ramifications of associating with those sort of mythical creatures might be…  For Christian Walker, it gets ugly.  Your Major Spoilers review awaits!

Or – “The Kansas City Shuffle…” Mark Millar has a very cinematic storytelling style, owing as much to Hollywood’s output as to that of the House of Ideas or the Distinguished Competition.  This series has been a very open riff on the ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ movie series, combined with the trappings of a super-hero comic, but can he stick the landing as well as Clooney & Pitt?  Your Major Spoilers review awaits!

Or – “It’s Easy To Forget That Crime Capers Are Committed By Criminals…” Not so long ago, Mark Millar created “Wanted,” a story of high-level super-criminals and the man who wakes up to realize that he’s actually one of them.  I had been worried that this series would be too similar to that one, but Supercrooks actually surprised me with it’s take on the dark side of super-powers…

Or – “Any Resemblance To Ultimate Spider-Man Is Purely Intentional.” I think there’s a lot of truth to the expectation that a normal kid, given super-powers, would be more likely to trash stuff and rob banks than he would be to focus on great power, great responsibility and such.  But Albert’s dilemma may be more complicated than he thought, as his friends reveal the secrets of the experiments into super-powers.
