Guardians 3000 #2

Only two issues in the latest series featuring the original team of the Guardians of the Galaxy begins to stall. Although Guardians 3000 #2 ends on an interesting note involving a Tony Stark reference, the events of the latest issue don't do much to push forward the near-identical (but now less interesting) series of events from the first issue. Plus we don't get any dimensional swapping meaning we're left with a version of the Guardians with a female Starhawk and no Aleta that just feels wrong.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

After two films of murder games by children building up to a rebellion stoked by class warfare the latest entry into The Hunger Games franchise offers only more build-up. Deciding to break the final book of the series into two parts, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is nearly all set-up with no payoff in sight for at least a full year until next Fall (if ever).
