ROM #8: Plot & script by Christos Gage & Chris Ryall, Pencils & inks by Paolo Villanelli, Colors by ALessandra Alexakis & Letters by Shawn Lee. G.I.Joe's Beachhead is still a doofus.

Jem and the Holograms #24 & #25: Written by Kelly Thompson, Art by Gisele Lagace, Colors by M. Victoria Robado & Letters by Shawn Lee. So the whole new drummer Raya vs. old drummer returning Shana is solved by just having Shana switch to playing bass in the band. So no drama there. Is drama from Jerrica letting her boyfriend know about Jem sorta being fake and about Synergy. Plus the reality crew trailing around for a scoop on Stormer (because the Misfits are doing a reality show in their mini-series). Oh and drama from the Stingers who are vacationing right next to the Holograms in Hawai'i. Such drama!

ROM #7: Plot/Script by Christos Gage & Chris Ryall, Pencils/inks by Paolo Villanelli, Colors by Alessandra Alexakis & Letters by Shawn Lee.  Rom works to convince his fellow Space Knights that Earth requires something other than the standard whole world cleansing of Wraith infection.  Made more difficult by an attack by rogue Joes' Beach Head and Grunt.

The Wicked & the Divine: 1831AD: Writer Kieron Gillen, Artist Stephanie Hans & Letterer Clayton Cowles.  A one-shot, with the celebrity Divinities this time being period writers.  I'm terrible at figuring out the "real" people who become gods are, but I think Shelly is Morrigan, Byron is Lucifer, Mary Shelly is Woden and her sister is Woden.  And Keats maybe as Hades who dies at the start?  I'm even less certain of the several mentioned and shown in passing.  Like the thing with the killer ape and stolen heart makes me think Thoth is supposed to have been Poe?

ROM #3: Plot/Script by Christos Gage & Chris Ryall, Pencils & Colors by David Messina, Inks by Michele Pasta, Color Assist by Alessandra Alexakis & Letters by Chris Mowry.  I have to admit I kind of have a hard time remembering that war vet Darby Mason and police officer and Wraith infectee Camilla Byers are seperate characters.

Dark Horse Presents #26: EiC Mike Richardson.  No Finder this issue = sad.  Still, work by Kaare Andrews, Paul Levitz, Al Gordon and John Arcudi.  Also a Maverick/Crazy Cops story by Jimmy Palmiotti and Just Gray NOT working with Palmiotti's wife.  Not that Aaron Campbell is bad or anything.
