Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.
Batman #120 (DC Comics) – The new creative team has grounded the character in some ways focusing on a murder possibly committed by members of Batman Inc. With a reminder of Bruce Wayne’s misfortunes as well, it’s been a nice change from the years of over the top bad guys.
Chicken Devil #4 (AfterShock) – The series has been over the top violence and a hell of a lot of fun.
Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic focusing on Elektra’s version of Daredevil. A piece or her past is haunting her and now she’ll need to go against Kraven the Hunter!
Dark Knights of Steel #4 (DC Comics) – The series has been a fantastic “Elseworlds” type story taking our familiar heroes and villains and putting them in a world of sword and sorcery. The various machinations as kingdoms jockey towards war has been intriguing.
Fantastic Four: Reckoning War Alpha #1 (Marvel) – What sounds like a pretty big event is kicking off!
The Goon #14 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is always an entertaining time. There’s a twisted Popeye like fun about the series which continuously delivers amazing art, laughs, and most importantly, fun.
Monkey Prince #1 (DC Comics) – Perfectly time for the new year, we want to really check out this series mainly due to DC’s excellent press roll out for it.
New Masters #1 (Image Comics) – Alien colonizers have taken over Western Africa as a group of outcasts find themselves in a struggle for power and control is this interesting piece of Afrofuturism.
Nocterra #7 (Image Comics) – The last arc ended with a cliffhanger and we’re excited to see what happens next in this world cast in darkness.
Primos #1 (AWA Studios) – Centuries ago, two Mayan brothers constructed a spacecraft that sent them hurtling into outer space. Returned to Earth only to find their culture and civilization destroyed, one of the brothers vows revenge and seeks to decimate the planet with intergalactic technology gathered on his travels.
Sabretooth #1 (Marvel) – One character has been shuffled off to the side and we want to see what he’s been up to.
Savage Spider-Man #1 (Marvel) – Non-Stop Spider-Man was a really fun series and this follow up will hopefully continue that.
Serial #10 (Abstract Studio) – The series wraps up and we’re so excited, and nervous, to see what happens between Zoe and Jenni!
Speed Republic #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – In the future, Europe has united under one man, The Autocrat. He rules the apocalyptic landscape from corporate monopolies with a vision of unity that is gospel to some, but hollow to others. To distract the 99% from their poor and empty lives, they are given the opportunity to compete in the Grand Race.
X-Cellent #1 (Marvel) – X-Statix. Nuff said.
