Star Wars #1 by Brian Wood & Carlos D'Anda

Dark Horse have published dozens -- probably hundreds -- of Star Wars tie-in books down the years, but this is the first simply entitled Star Wars. (So people keep saying, but it isn't. Still, that was 10 years ago.)

Set immediately after the end of A New Hope, it's the further adventures of Luke, Leia, Han and Darth Vader (and the rest). Despite opening with a slightly dull three-page dialogue scene, the rest of the issue is content-packed and largely entertaining. A promising start.

The Superior Spider-Man #1 by Dan Slott & Ryan Stegman

So the controversial new era of Spider-Man begins… and I thought it was really good. So there. Great twist at the end too.
