In the late 90’s, a group of friends were avid comic book readers. Every Wednesday, we would pick up our comics, read them, and share quick reviews with each other. It was fun and we did it pretty much every week from 1996 to 2005. Eventually, we tapered off, some stopped reading, some of us lost touch with one another. As this blog has grown over the last 4 years, I feel a need to write more things for all of you to read. So, Comix this week is reborn. As with my movie reviews, this is not comprehensive. I cannot afford to read every comic, nor will I illegally download them, I respect the artists and writers too much for that. Every week there will be a “pick of the week”.
I use cover images in my reviews. These images are from various comic companies, such as Marvel, DC, and Image in today’s case. They own this stuff. I do this for fun, not money. Enjoy.

East of West 13
Death battles the Texas Rangers dudes as the Indians prepare for War.
Captain America 22
Steve Rogers is depowered and is his real age of around 90 years old. At his weakest moment, Dr Zola leads his army to Earth and joins with the Red Skull to conquer!
Original Sin 5
The secrets of Nick Fury are FINALLY revealed. While is Life Model Decoys were on Earth fighting with the Avengers, he was actually an old man living on a spaceship! He has spent the last several decades defending Earth from Alien attack! A great issue. I was not expecting this quality from Original Sin. Let’s see if they can end the series with something spectacular.
