In the aftermath of the record-breaking debut of Captain America: Civil War, all eyes turn to Marvel comics for more of that Avengers goodness. Most notably of course for the scene-stealing Black Panther who just happens to be dropping issue #2 of the new series from Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze this week. Don't forget to pick up fellow Avenger The Vision whose acclaimed series also ushers in another great issue. Marvel also has Civil War 2 going so we'll see how that goes. Check out all our other recommendations this week including the last Starfire, The Fix #2, Jackpot #2, the first post-Scott Snyder/Greg Capullo issue of Batman and much more plus another musical slideshow.

REVIEW: 'Bonehead' #2 by Bryan Edward Hill, Rhoald Marcellius, and Sakti Yuwono

Bryan Hill pumps the brakes a little in the follow up to the fast-paced debut of 'Bonehead' with more great world building. The mystery surrounding Bonehead 56 deepens but we at least get some backstory and details about what his arrival means for a pair of brothers with opposing viewpoints.

REVIEW: 'Hit-Girl' #1 by Mark Millar and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz

Hit-Girl is most certainly back and as deadly and crazy as ever. She's gone international looking to fight injustice and find a worthy sidekick. Mark Millar is in top form with help from artists Ricardo Lopez Ortiz and Sunny Gho. The heart of the Kick-Ass legacy lives on as bloody and as thrilling as you remember.

Score: ★★★★★ (5/5)
The retirement of Dave Lizewki as the original Kick-Ass has left a void in Mindy's crime-fighting life. Trying to recruit his replacement has been challenging to say the least. She's going to go it alone and taking her skills global as a cry for help leads her to Colombia.

Millar hits the floor running with a wild prison break, Mindy parting ways with an unworthy partner, and a grieving mother looking for justice. The sudden blitz back to the world of Kick-Ass is like comfort food for comic book fans. …
