Mars Attacks Judge Dredd #2 (of 4)
So I am just going to start this by saying … Is there really much of a crossing of Judge Dredd and Mars Attacks fans on a Venn diagram?, On that I am unsure I am not overly familiar with Mar Attacks aside from the basic that it was a ye olde timey trading card game that was later adapted by Tim Burton as a movie so one could say it has a certain niche appeal and similarly Judge Dredd has a niche appeal it is just that I questioned why this book was before reading it.

Memory Collectors #1 (of 3)
It’s nice when a comic book takes you by surprise. My initial reaction as I looked through the review-file for ‘Memory Collectors’ was that this is just a tailor-made-for-Goths book about demon-slaying chicks in fetish gear.
I wouldn’t say I was proven entirely wrong , but I would say that this book is still pretty damned good!

Triple Helix #1 (of 4)
I don’t really know what to say about this book. It jumps straight into the action with a scene that looks like it would fit right in with Superman/Doomsday. From there though it just feels more and more like a 90’s X-Men comic with clichéd dialog and a plot line that tries really hard to be “golden age-y” but just misses the mark.

The Colonized TPB
The four-issue run of IDW’s Colonized, (essentially ‘Zombies versus Aliens’) has a lot going for it, but a few slight niggles that prevent it from becoming something truly memorable. I should start off with one of the major plus points though, that being the terrific artwork of Drew Moss. With such a wide variety of subjects, characters and situations to draw, it’s clear that Moss is having a blast here, and seems to have fully embraced the admittedly ludicrous “B-Movie” premise of the title.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #21
After what seems like an endless series of preludes, the wheels are finally gradually starting to move on IDW’s eagerly-anticipated ‘Dark Cybertron’ Transformers crossover. Sadly though, we’re not quite there yet, although some of the preludes – this one included – have offered up some truly interesting content.
