Taylor: Thor: God of Thunder #25
This week is a very special one, as it marks the end of this chapter in Jason Aaron’s awe-inspiring run with the Mighty Thor, God of Thunder. It has been one Hel of a ride so far, and I’m eager to see what comes next with Mjolnir’s new wielder, but this is definitely a bittersweet moment for me to let go of the GoT book. Here’s hoping the next chapter in this epic run will be as thrilling as the first has been, and that this issue closes that first chapter in style.

Throwing more excitement, adventure, and story into a single issue than pretty much all of the Big 2’s books, Manifest Destiny has been an amazingly well-done supernatural/alternate history comic book, and there’s no end in sight.

Jules: Uncanny X-Men #26
Honestly, Brian Michael Bendis has been on fire with his X-Titles for the last couple of years and I have been especially loving this title. Chris Bachalo being one of my favorite artist has been knocking it out of the park in this title. The last issue was just brilliance in-between luscious pages of what Bendis has been bringing to the X-Verse I was overjoyed with the turn of every page and cannot wait to read this one.
