A Walk Through Hell #2

Jun 16, 2018

A Walk Through Hell is very much a modern day Lovecraft tale of horror but without the big dumb tentacle monsters.

Bedtime Games #1

Jul 1, 2018

What would seem to be a generic dumb horror mini-series about three teenagers trepassing upon a town seceret turns into a complex, character driven cautionary tale that actually has a lot of weight to it.

Death Of The Inhumans #1

Jul 13, 2018

Donny Cates, Ariel Oletti, and Jordie Bellaire ran 50 yards and slam-dunked this one out of the park. It's a huge step in the right direction for The Inhumans franchise, and has the gravity and weight the Inhumans need right now.

Doctor Strange (2018) #1

Jun 12, 2018

Yes, it has beautiful art, greatly written dialogue and narration, but who wants Doctor Strange magic-less? Hopefully, that changes soon.

Hey Kids! Comics! #1

Aug 7, 2018

Hey Kids! Comics is an ambitious series by Howard Chaykin. It's a conduit of controversy, focused on the birth of the comic book business as we know it, and the fictionalized seedy backroom deals and personal dramas that laid the foundation for it to be the powerhouse conglomerate it is today.

Immortal Hulk #17

May 20, 2019

The Immortal Hulk #17 is incredible, as is the entire series. It's perfect, and will probably remain perfect until it ends.

Man of Steel (2018) #2

Jun 12, 2018

Man of Steel #2 is very much a 2nd issue of a short miniseries, in that it doesn't give us a lot of info as to whats happening, but it adds some layers and it's a fun ride.

Pearl #1

Aug 20, 2018

Pearl is an explosive start to the newest creation by Brian Michael Bendis and the amazing Michael Gaydos. The story itself is very good take on the gangland crime-noir type stories, but the shining star of this book is artist Michael Gaydos and the mindblowing art he puts to paper in this first issue of Pearl.

Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #1

Jun 30, 2018

The main Zdarsky story may be one of the best things he's ever written, and combined with Allred's art it's an annual that can't be missed.

Sentry (2018) #1

Jul 3, 2018

A great first issue for Sentry. Jeff Lemire is doing what he does best, which is bringing heart and emotional realness to a fantastical story.

Tony Stark: Iron Man #1

Jun 21, 2018

This is an amazing jumping on point for people who want a little more Tony in their souls, and just all around a fun romp in some yellow and gold armor.
