Storm #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was amazing. In just one issue writer Greg Pak defined, added depth, and re-introduced us to the iconic character.
The Strain: Night Eternal #1 (Dark Horse) – The third, and final, volume in the book turned comic turned television series. The television series has been picked up for a second season, so get ahead of the story!
Trees #4 (Image Comics) – Warren Ellis’ brilliant sci-fi series…. I’m still trying to figure it all out.
Zaya (Magnetic Press) – A secret agent in the distant future leaves her post to seek a normal life as an artist and mother. When a biomechanical threat starts attacking agents across the galaxy, she is called back into the field to find and stop the killer. The mission opens many questions about her own past, present, and future within not only the organization, but within the universe as she knows it. The graphic novel is stunning to look at and an awesome read.
