Justin Reviewed Thor #1, God Hates Astronauts #2 and Action Comics #35 so check out those reviews:

Thor #1
Jason Aaron
Russell dauterman
We open on a Roxxon sea lab that has found some unfriendly frost giants. Earth is in trouble and THOR is the man for the job! Except our hero has spent weeks trying to lift his hammer to no avail. A cast of asgardians has assembled to watch the struggling god of thunder this cast includes Odin, the all-father. Thor’s despair is well done here but the exchanges between Odin and Freyja are repetitive in their aim to show Odin as a chauvinistic pig. This leads to everyone admitting that they are also unable to pick up the hammer. When news of the Frost Giant attack reaches the moon Odin says that is it no matter of asgard and they should return home. Freyja immediately contradicts that order and calls everyone to war. Thor finally breaks his pitty party and decides to go get his axe and head for earth. Thor comes riding in on his goat which is either Toothgnasher or Toothgrinder. Upon arrival the sealab it is revealed taht malekith the accursed has been behind this attack and he is looking for something the roxxon crew dug up. this object naturally has immense power. The weakened, hammerless thor is no match for malekith and promptly gets his arm cut off. Meanwhile on the moon Freyja decides to give the Hammer a try and promptly becomes the new GOD OF THUNDER. This betrays the notion that Angela was going to become the new thor and it will no doubt result in Thor getting upset when the other avengers talk about how hot his warrior mom is.
God hates astronauts #2
Ryan Browne
Looking for a batshit crazy story? Love decapitation? Aroused by clever onamonapia?  Then God Hates Astronauts is for you! This book doesn’t have time for silly things like logic and realism. The story is like riding around in the Oscar Mayer wiener mobile. Sure, you are going somewhere but it doesn’t matter because you are in the flashiest, goofiest most unsafe vehicle on the road and everyone is jealous. We may all be killed by king tiger eating a cheeseburger when it is all said and done, but who gives  a fuck? Let’s just enjoy the ride.
Action Comics #35
Greg Pak
Scott kolins and vincente cifuentes
Superman has been gone for months after his turn as “superdoom” and subsequent battle with braniac. As far as he knows, billions died. Upon returning to earth he finds out that only thousands had died. Naturally, this is still too many and weighs heavily on his concience. This issue is a roller coaster ride. There are aspects of Superman that I really enjoy, one of which is the idea that Luther thinks that superman’s existence makes humanity weak. In this issue Clark pulls out the cliche where he writes and article about why the world doesn’t even need superman. The world recovered just fine without him. Upon publishing the article even Luthor says “i’m beginning to like this kent guy”. This notion is really intriguing to me and it is heightened by a REALLY heartfelt response article from Lois. She presents us with the idea that Superman is the one who needs humanity and that the way we embrace him is powerful in its own right. All of this really worked for me and then the final scene… Lana is standing talking to her parents graves. They died in the braniac attack. She agrees with Clark and she thinks that he and superman are just too much for Earth. Naturally this moment is followed up by FUCKING ZOMBIES CRAWLING OUT OF THE GROUND. The issue ends on this bullshit. DC cannot help themselves. They manage to gain some goodwill and then flush it down the drain. It is like watching sideshow bob repeatedly step on the rakes. You have to just helplessly stand by and watch it happen. I can only hope that Greg Pak has a compelling plan for super zombies.
