X-23 #3 cover by Mike Choi and Jesus Aburtov
Mariko Tamaki still writes a compelling X-23, and Juann Cabal's artwork is gorgeous. X-23 #3 art by Juann Cabal and Nolan Woodard The chase scene owes much of its intensity to the art of Cabal He is very skilled at depicting action sequences, and the comic derides much of its overall quality from that fact His clean[...]
X-23 #2 cover by Mike Choi and Jesus Aburtov
Also, Jonathan is amazing, but he needs to get back to talking with Rocket Raccoon's speech device.

She-Hulk #163 cover by Rahzzah
After the emotionally intense and heavy series from Mariko Tamaki, it's nice to have an uplifting finale that insinuates that She-Hulk's life is looking up. It is a text-heavy issue, with much of the comic consisting of banter between Jen and Patsy, but it's quick and entertaining dialogue Plus, it allows the comic to close out[...]
