Creator-owned comics at its finest is displayed this week, as Scott Snyder, Scott Tuft, and Attila Futaki wrap up their Image horror masterpiece with Severed #7. The build-up and pay-off were all wonderfully done. And if the rumors are true about a planned sequel down the road, I feel that poor Jack won’t be wanting any more salesmen any time soon.
Adam Glass is making Suicide Squad his won with issue #6. This starts off the Hunt for Harley Quinn storyline that tells Harley’s origin in the new DCU. Not much seems to be changing with her story, but doesn’t make it less entertaining to read.
And how could we say no to more Jason Aaron wackiness with Wolverine and the X-Men #5? This book has become the one to read to stay on top on all things X-Men relevant. And I’ve grown to appreciate Nick Bradshaw’s art more this time around. Read it just to find out what comes of Kitty’s “babies”…

Was there ever any doubt?
Uncanny X-Force #18 concludes one of the best X-tales I’ve read in quite some time. It speaks well to the talent that is Rick Remender and Jerome Opena for ending this arc in style. Whether you like your action or like your character moments, this one has it all. How the team tops this going into 2012 is going to be a sight to see.
Scott Snyder and Scott Tuft continue to bring the creepiness in Severed #5. You all know what’s going to happen – we’re just biting our nails waiting to see when that payoff will come into play. The characters and set pieces is what makes this mini-series stand out.
And finally, can we just declare J.H. Williams III the master of his domain? Batwoman #4 is a marvel to look at just like the previous three issues. It say something when DC is willing to put all of their ads in the back of just this book.
