STAR TREK LEGION OF SUPERHEROES #5
Writer: Chris Roberson
Artist: Jeffrey Moy, Philip Moy
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: In the distant past, one team of Legionnaires and Starfleet officers come face to face with the force that erased both of their timelines from existence, while in the altered 23rd century another team confronts the latter-day version of that same force. But now that they know how history was changed, can anything be done to set things right?
MONDO #1 Writer/Artist: Ted McKeever Publisher: Image Comics Price: $4.99 SOLICITATION: Catfish’s daily grind of “enhancing” poultry comes to a halt when he is accidentally tripped up by a loose chicken, causing him to fall victim to his own process. What proportions of his that were once human are now beyond anything normal. Add villainous corporate and military big wigs, a roller-skating weapon-toting chick named Kitten Kaboodle, a gang of tattooed babies, and there’s still that enormous beach monster…
And what you have is MONDO, in all its raging glory!

This was a good ‘un. This is the kind of light and fluffy whiz-bang comics that brings back the “fun” people say is lost from comics. In this issue we have a strange group of characters facing off against equally screwy enemies and the result is lightning paced entertainment. I know changing creative teams every issue is a gamble, but if this is any indication this is going to be a fun little event.
