Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Batman: Last Knight on Earth #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue of this series was amazing. It’s the future where something calamatous happened and Batman begins on a journey with just the Joker’s head in a jar to join him. Is this something he’s hallucinating? Reality? The comic will keep you guessing as to what’s happening.
The Batman Who Laughs #7 (DC Comics) – The miniseries wraps up and leads into the upcoming Superman/Batman series. The miniseries has been up and down but we’re excited to see how this wraps up.
Dear Justice League (DC Comics/DC Zoom) – This line of graphic novels geared towards kids have been fantastic and we’re always excited to see what’s next. This middle-grade graphic novel has superheroes answering questions about their lives in a series of short stories.
Death’s Head #1 (Marvel) – This comic was unexpected. Really funny with some solid art. Death’s Head has been torn apart and tunred into an amp. Now he wants revenge!
The Goon #5 (Albatross Funnybooks) – One of the most fun and entertaining comics on the market. Think Popeye with humor and horror and you have The Goon. Add in beyond amazing art and it’s a must get with every release.
Killers #1 (Valiant) – Five deadly assassins are recruited into a game of cat and mouse by the mysterious Jonin! The concept sounds awesome and Valiant delivers entertaining comics so we’re always excited to check out a new series from them.
Knights Temporal #1 (Aftershock) – From writer Cullen Bunn and artist Fran Galan the series is about a knight who’s sent to the modern world. The concept has been done but Bunn is a fantastic writer so to see his spin on this is what has us interested.
Manor Black #1 (Dark Horse) – Another comic from writer Cullen Bunn along with writer Brian Hurtt and artist Tyer Crook, this gothic horror series is about a family of sorcerers in crisis. Yeah, we’re sold.
Powers of X #1 (Marvel) – Writer Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men epic continues with this second of dual series that sets up his vision for years to come.
Red Winter #1 (Scout Comics) – Eli Winter is a former NYPD Detective in his 50s, now living in Kapotnya, the most crime-ridden district of Moscow. Eli also now works for a local crime boss. When Eli finds out his son destroyed his boss’s meth lab, we get a series that we’re excited to read.
