"Invincible Iron Man" launches with a fairly character-driven story. For the most part, its a by-the-numbers Iron Man-like first offering. The reader gets an introduction to Tony's mindset as he constructs some new armor. He lets out some of his thoughts to the latest Artificial Intelligence helper before interacting with other characters with his stereotypical facade. The book ends with a nice twist that should help push this story in a couple of different directions. I enjoyed the read and felt this was a good first issue. I recommend checking this out.

"Contest of Champions" opens with a thirty page, five-dollar comic book that moves some pieces into place and provides some action but falls short of being a good comic book. It's an average comic book with a premise that has been done time and time again. The comic has some very good artwork but this book is going to need to bring stronger characterization and more interesting developments if it is to have any legs. You may want to take a look at this but it might be catering to a very small audience.

Marvel launches "Doctor Strange" with an over-sized, five dollar first issue. The comic book is a character-driven story that allows readers to get a glimpse at the character from the ground floor. The book doesn't necessarily launch into any big plot. It sort of introduces Strange to the reader and gives a light introduction to some supporting characters. The artwork is a good companion to the slower story. The comic is an okay read but doesn't jump out from the pack at this point.

"Paper Girls" is a forty-page, three-dollar comic book that provides a fast-paced and intriguing initial offering. The comic focuses on four paper girls (this is the late 1980s when people still got newspapers and they were delivered to their doors in the wee hours of the morning) as they deliver their papers on the morning after Halloween. The book is a great read as it introduces the girls, brings them together and then sticks a heavy mystery in at the end. The book boasts some great artwork that helps to drive the tension. Overall, this is a comic that shouldn't be passed up. I highly recommend this.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Batman Annual #4

Tynion IV, Antoniio & McCaig

The latest "Batman" Annual represents why comic book publishing is a team effort. You need a good story, with good line work, appropriate colors, sensible lettering and an editorial hand to steady the whole thing. This is an example where whatever story Tynion was hoping to push across with this comic book is lost with artistic carelessness, lettering mistakes and dreadful editorial assistance. The idea that Bruce Wayne returns to his mansion, that had been turned into an asylum, only to be held hostage by some of Batman's villains is a sound idea that gets lost in the mistakes. When you charge five dollars for a comic book I don't care what your page count is if you can't put care into each of the pages then the whole thing is a waste. Had this been a three dollar comic book perhaps the cost of the mistakes would have been less. I'd avoid this comic book unless you are a Batman completist or followed the 'Arkham Manor' comic that was last published in March.

Geek Goggle Reviews: American Vampire Second Cycle #10

Snyder, Albuquerque & McCaig

"American Vampire: Second Cycle" reaches its penultimate issue with the two plots seeing alternating action as the tension rises. Generally, this is a very exciting read. The drawbacks of the comic have to do with the length of the gaps between issues. If you are willing to go back re-read the previous issues of "Second Cycle" then the little tidbits that are dropped in this issue will have a greater impact. There are also some required suspension of the physics behind the space activity but that is easier to dismiss in light of the fact that these are vampires. Overall, this issue is a great set-up for the finale of the series. I recommend this comic.

Roberts, Milne, Shearer & LaFuente

The latest issue of "Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye" launches a side story about the Scavengers. The comic book is mostly aside from the long narrative and probably would be a decent chance for someone that is not following the series a chance to find out how this comic book is so much different from every other comic out there. The issue is funny, dramatic and a very deep and dense read. As always, this is a very good read as is the case each and every month.

"1872" reaches its penultimate issue with more Marvel characters entering the fray while the plots move toward their conclusion. The comic is a good read but has a couple of areas that count against it in the execution. The mini-series will be worth a look as it appears Red Wolf will have a place in the new Marvel universe once the Secret Wars event wraps up. I recommend giving this a chance.
