Ratings for Comics Released 1-29-2014 Part 1 @DCComics @Marvel @ImageComics


As anyone can tell that visits frequently I've been behind on my reading for almost a year now (excluding my Featured Reviews). Originally it's because I was out of the comic book scene since 1997 and jumped back on and started reading Marvel starting with 2009 then once I go caught up with the New 52 started reading DC. Now the number of comics I read a week sometimes 50+ and with real life it was taking awhile. I was finally only 1 month behind back before the New Year and the new house happened. So here we are again I'm almost 6 months back now. So I'm changing my quick ratings in an attempt to catch up. I will still try to post the guest reviews, but considering they are back issues I might not.

With that said here are the ratings for comics released 1-29-2014; Part 1;
  • Aquaman #27
  • Avengers Assemble #23
  • Batman and Robin Annual #2
  • Batman: The Dark Knight #27
  • Black Science #3
  • Cataclysm: The Ultimates' Last Stand #4
  • Catwoman #27
  • Damian: Son of Batman #4

Let me know your opinion or if you have any questions and want to discuss anything just leave a comment.
