Black Friday #2 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – Something is trying to come up through the floor. An evil has festered due to the violence of previous Black Fridays and the staff of Star-Mart will need to survive what’s coming. Fantastic horror and a must for fans of the genre.
Black Widow #7 (Marvel) – The series has been amazing so far with a great mix of everything. The writing is top-notch, the action entertaining, and the art is amazing. One of Marvel’s best series out now.
The Blue Flame #1 (Vault Comics) – A new take on the superhero genre. The Blue Flame must prove humanity is worth saving before a universal trial but the hero must save himself first.
Made in Korea #1 (Image Comics) – A series that explores the concept of artificial intelligence. Check out our glowing review.
Mister Miracle: The Source of Freedom #1 (DC Comics) – Spinning out of Future State, this is the story of how Shilo Norman became Mister Miracle.
The Other History of the DC Universe #4 (DC Comics) – John Ridley turns his exploration into the DC Universe towards Renee Montoya.
Redshift #1 (Scout Comics) – The Ministry of Exploration pins mankind’s last hope on an astronaut who’s scared of space. It’s a tale of survival for all.
Reptil #1 (Marvel) – Not a character we expected to get the spotlight but we’re intrigued to see what’s done here.
Robin #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was a lot of fun. There was a solid mix of humor and action and the second issue is just as fun. So much added to Damian as far as depth of the character already.
Shadow Doctor #4 (AfterShock) – The amazing true story about a Black doctor in the 1930s who had to turn to his friend Al Capone to help fund his business.
Shadowman #2 (Valiant Entertainment) – The first issue was fantastic and a great reintroduction to the character. The debut got universal praise from our team and we’re all excited to see where the series goes from there.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #3 (IDW Publishing) – We’ve been eagerly waiting for the issue as the series has been delivering entertainment with each release. It’s a familiar grizzled take but the setting and story itself really stands out with really unique elements.
