Short Comics Reviews

So, here's some reviews of some of this week's new comics:

Exiles #72
It is a fun nostalgia piece, just like I predicted.  I don't know if it will add up to more or not, but I'll stay thru the end of the New Universe story!

Infinite Crisis #2:
After last issue (which seemed to just be an endless recap of all the Infinite Crisis lead-in stuff), this one is much better.  And it is made very obvious that Infinite Crisis is really a sequel to Crisis on Infinite Earths, which makes me much more interested!  I think I'm going to stick with this one and see what happens...

Sabrina the Teenage Witch #71
We are learning more about how Sabrina is being manipulated by powerful magical forces.  And Sabrina is even picking up on some of it!  I hope she comes around more before the shit hits the fan... it's no fun seeing the heroine pulled around like this.  But I shouldn't worry -- half the Sabrina stories ever told are about Sabrina not understanding a magical concept at the beginning of the story (or even worse, ignoring what she had been told), and by the end she has wised up and learned her lesson the hard way (but nothing bad really happened).  So I guess I just want to see her wise up sooner rather than later this time -- because the stakes seem much higher this time!
