Once a month the amazing staff at 8th Dimension Comics selects a pile of the best new releases for us to peruse and judge. This month we'll feature our usual breakdown, but first let's look at the two big crossover events going on in comics right now.
Let's start of in the Marvel universe, shall we? I've frankly been avoiding covering the battle between the Avengers and the X-Men because, well, it seemed like a ham-fisted excuse to draw a bunch of completely predictable and pointless battle scenes for most of a year. Having taken this month to absorb the story arch across multiple books, I still think that that is 75 percent what it is.
