Review: The Guardian #1

Former vice cop Bobby Karras dons superhero tights to do the dirty work he knows needs to be done. A surprisingly strong debut issue from Fred Schiller (with a little help from Paul Wishinsky) and the art team of Tom Morgan and Bob Lewis.

Review: Quack! #1

A comic-book-drawing duck is pulled into the pirate world of the Duckaneer, and high-sea hijinks ensue. Frank Brunner’s lead feature leads off a talent-infused lineup – including work by Howard Chaykin, Dave Stevens and others – but the stories just aren’t on par with the art.

Review: The Avengers #145

The Assassin targets Captain America – just the first step in a plot to take down all of the Avengers. The first of two surprisingly strong fill-in issues by Tony Isabella, with less-than-exceptional art from Don Heck and John Tartaglione.

As reality unravels in Scotland, the X-Men must go all out against Proteus before he becomes too strong to stop. An excellent climax to the Proteus arc from the X-team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin.
