Shadowhawk and Bane of Kings welcome you to the second comics round-up for September.

“This is DC’s big month for the year, Villain’s Month and as expected, there are all sorts of stories here: good ones, bad ones, average ones and everything in between those three.” ~Shadowhawk, The Founding Fields

“Geoff Johns brings his run on Green Lantern to a superb finish, executing the Third Army arc superbly. Wonder Woman’s third volume however is strong but imperfect, whilst over at Image, East of West Vol. 1 ranks among some of the best comics that I’ve read all year.” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields
