    SPOILER ALERT — We try to keep from posting spoilers, but one may sneak through to our reviews now and again. Read with caution, true believers.

    Supergirl #9
    By: Steve Orlando, Brian Ching, Michael Atyeh

    Escape from the Phantom Zone Part One kicks off an arc that I’ve been dying to see since Rebirth started. A Barbara Gordon and Kara Danvers team up.

    The concept is simple. The Tychotech company in National City is unveiling a new clean energy concept to the world. As Supergirl, Kara has been invited due to her attachment to the technology used. Of course, something goes wrong and the machine goes haywire sending Barbara’s friend Ben into the Phantom Zone. Naturally, Batgirl and Supergirl head into the Phantom Zone to find him and get him out.

    Writer Steve Orlando did pull off something that I didn’t see coming. The villain who turned-on the machine was Magog, who hasn’t made a ton of appearances (that I’m aware of) since Kingdom Come. Brian Ching does a good job with this world and has since Rebirth started. Michael Atyeh’s colors are perfect for any “Super” book: Nice and bright. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Titans #11
    By: Dan Abnett, Brett Booth, Benjamin Percy, Mike McKone

    Since the beginning of Rebirth, Titans has always stood at the center of it all thanks to Wally West, the one hero who kickstarted this whole event. With Titans #11 and the first chapter of The Lazarus Contract, Wally and the rest of his team find themselves set to change the DC Universe yet again.

    Like all great Titans stories, Titans #11 centers on Deathstroke, who seeks to bring his son back from the dead. Slade believes the key is through Wally West and time travel, which could have potentially devastating effects on the already fragile state of the universe. In particular, the last page of this comic will shake things up in a big way for both the Titans and Teen Titans.

    Titans #11 is the start of yet another exciting mini-event for DC Comics and looks to shake everything up once again. The superstar writing team of Ben Percy, Dan Abnett, and Christopher Priest are well on their way to knocking this one out of the park. [Josh P. at TFAW.com]

    The Unbelievable Gwenpool #15
    By: Christopher Hastings, Myisha Haynes, Paulina Ganucheau

    Weird team-ups! Hijinks! 4th-wall breaking! It’s all here in The Unbelievable Gwenpool! This whole series is nothing but obscure adventures and breaking the 4th-wall, and no surprise, it’s been awesome.

    Gwenpool’s friend is trapped is a gem, and she’s working with Hawkeye (Kate Bishop) to help free him. Well, first she’s got to get her friend back from Ghost Rider, then save him from the dwarves that want the gem. Then, she has to somehow get him out, all while Ghost Rider does his thing and Kate Bishop a.k.a. Hawkeye, just shoots arrows.

    This is a really fun series that you can’t take seriously at all: It’s zanier than good ol’ Deadpool. Less blood and guts, but more wacky fun. [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    SHE’S UNBELIEVEABLE AND NOT OF THEIR WORLD, PICK UP THE ADVENTURES OF GWENPOOL

    Secret Warriors #1
    By: Matthew Rosenberg, Javi Garron, Tradd Moore

    i>Secret Empire #1 revealed a shocking truth about the state of the Hydra-controlled world: Inhumans were being rounded up into camps. While this is only touched on briefly in that book, Secret Warriors #1 dives headfirst into the subject.

    Writer Matthew Rosenberg assembles a dream team of Inhumans for this latest incarnation of the Secret Warriors, including Ms. Marvel, Moon Girl and Quake. The comic features equal amounts mystery, suspense, drama, and action, and Rosenberg nails all of it. Artist Javi Garron does a fantastic job bringing the characters to life.

    If you’ve read the solicits for Secret Warriors, you won’t find any surprises in this book. However, if you’re following Secret Empire #1 or you’re a fan of the Inhumans, I highly recommend this book due to its strong writing and the impact it’s going to have on Secret Empire as a whole.

    The classic horror movie poster was enough for me to pick this up. After reading it I’m gonna have to keep picking it up. It’s too crazy to describe… If you like B-movie horror and dark comedy then this is some sweet reading.

     Gwenpool comics at TFAW.com Gwenpool #1
    By: Christopher Hastings,Gurihiru, Danillo Beyruth

    From our universe to theirs. Gwenpool is all about this superhero/mercenary game. We don’t know how she got here but all we know is she’s from our world. Yeah, ours. She’s read the comics watched the movies, played the games. Somehow she ended up in the 616. She’s been having small gigs with Howard the Duck but now we get an ongoing with her. It’s funny, crazy, and full of nonsense that, if you knew you was in a comic you would probably do as well.

    Gurihiru does a great job on the main story art with cute anime inspired character designs. It works very well for the Gwenpool character. While Danilo Beyruth gives us a more standard western comic art. All in all, if you like Deadpool, or are looking for a fourth-wall breaking character to lighten up your day, Gwenpool will do a great job filling that need! [Martin M. at TFAW.com]

    Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys #1 (of 6)
    By: Frank Tieri, Jimmy Palmiotti, Mauricet, Amanda Conner

    If you are a major Harley Quinn fan, Harley Quinn and Her Gang of Harleys is the comic book miniseries for you! Harley needs some help so she calls together a band of friends to fight crime. Most of these characters are familiar to you if you read the on going Harley series. If you are not familiar with it, that’s okay! This number one breaks down who each new Harley is and what their special ability is.

    I am interested to see where this series will go and I love Harley Quinn taking the lead. You can tell throughout the whole comic that she really just wants to help these new girls get up to speed like her but keep their individuality. Their abilities are put to the test when Harley gets kidnapped. There are a lot of chuckles and character development in the first issue and I love the direction DC is taking with her — this comic just is icing on the cake! I recommend picking up this issue #1 before they are sold out! [Darcey M. at Universal TFAW]

     Escape From New York comics at TFAW.com Heartthrob #1
    By: Christopher Sebela, Robert Wilson IV

    Writer Christopher Sebela and artist Robert Wilson IV have an interesting idea on their hands with this first issue of Heartthrob. A young woman, Callie, gets a heart transplant and with that transplant, Callie starts to not only “see” her heart donor in her minds eye, but starts to have romantic feelings towards her donor’s “ghost” (for lack of a better term). And what could be stranger than that but to have that “ghost” have feelings for Callie too? This is a welcome turn for Callie who is consistently having her advances towards her living lover/co-worker spurned. Meanwhile, Callie finds out that the company she’s been working for is a little less than honest.

    This becomes too much for Callie who gets jilted by her lover/co-worker who is getting a big promotion at her company and so she quits. Top it all off with a twist that Callie’s donor was a thief in his lifetime who, in his after-life, wants to help Callie take down her old employer, and you have the makings for a pretty intriguing first issue.
