Nothing I bought was worth reviewing in depth,

So here are a bunch of capsule reviews of several recent comics:

Supergirl #5: What a waste. Loeb is a truly talented writer, but this series has (so far) had no point. Moving past the point there's way too much skin and T&A for a comic starring a 15 year old girl, this issue wasted a promising revelation with a backhanded dismissal.

After four issues of pointless fight scenes, this issue starts off with a rather cool new take on the idea of Supergirl. I was about to be impressed, but at the end of the tale we are told it might or might not be true, but in any case it doesn't matter because Supergirl is the coolest, bestest hero ever.

And what the hell is up with Superman's solution? "I can't tell who is good and who is evil, so I'll beat the hell out of both of you and sort it out later." Ugh.

Fantastic Four #535: The last few issue have been more of a Hulk tale than an FF tale. The interesting storyline dealing with Child Protective services gets resolved as almost an after thought. JMS is not in top form here, though he writes the Hulk well.

Nick Fury's Howling Commandos #5: Does anyone have any idea what is going on in this comic? I didn't think so.

Spike: Old Wounds: An unremarkable tale set in between episodes of the last season of Angel. However, it was nice to see Los Hermanos Numeros again.
