One Sentence Summaries Returns With A Vengeance!

Twice now I've done this bit where I describe/summarize a comic with one sentence. Sometimes it is a short sentence, sometimes it is quite lengthy. I felt like doing this again, so I shall....

Some New One Sentence Summaries
The Bunker #2
This comic is basically proving if you could write a letter to your past self things wouldn't go as smoothly as you'd hope.

Secret Avengers #1
This is a re-launch of the earlier comic, and Ales Kot is a good writer, but for some reason I just have not enjoyed any entries under the "Secret Avengers" name since Warren Ellis absolutely killed it on his small number of issues.

Jupiter's Legacy #4
We get it, Mark Millar, your work shows you simultaneously love heroes and think of them as terrible people at the same time--most of your output reflects this immensely.

Ms. Marvel #2
This comic is pretty good at combining teenage drama with humor, and having a Muslim character without seeming like it is forcing diversity, plus the art is pretty.

Avengers Undercover #1
This is basically the follow-up comic to "Avengers Arena", which turned out to be a pretty good comic despite initial controversy, and therefore if this new first issue is any indicator then this title will be pretty darn snazzy too.

Bedlam #11
What at first seemed like Nick Spencer's version of what would happen if someone like the Joker were cured has slowly morphed into an intriguing conspiracy that seems to be growing ever-weirder.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Two #2
I haven't read the newly-released third issue yet, but imagine it continues the trend of this comic series actually being really good for a story that ties into a decent (but not amazing) game.

Afterlife with Archie #4
I never thought I would see the day an officially licensed "Archie" comic had this amount of sexual innuendo, violence, and otherwise was completely awesome while also weirdly keeping that "Archie" feeling.

Batman #29
I would be annoyed that "Zero Year" is seeming to go on forever if it weren't for the fact that it actually has been a pretty good mega-arc.

X-Men Legacy #300
This was a decent way to close things out and incorporate a lot of the various writers and plots the story has had, but I really wish there were more (read: much of any) David Haller AKA Legion, because he is awesome.
