A pretty big snowstorm is burying parts of the United States this weekend, and could force individuals to be stuck inside for at least a few days. So, the team has decided to get in to the snowy spirit and have suggestions for comics and graphic novels to enjoy during your time stuck inside.
We’re also including links if you can get the comics digitally so you can enjoy them now!
Mr. H: Not a comic book but I highly suggest you stream or watch the classic Batman the Animated Series episode “Heart of Ice” one of the best in the entire run, and it even has chicken soup. Also Batman! You can watch it on Amazon Prime right now.
Alex: Batman: Noel – Yes, it’s a retelling of A Christmas Carol, but Lee Bermejo’s art and Barbara Ciardo’s colours just make you feel the cold. The art is just blood fantastic. That it takes place within a Gotham blizzard is just the icing on the cake. Kindle & comiXology.
Elana: Whiteout by Rucka and Lieber. You can get the Definitive Edition for the Kindle.
Alex: Wolverine: Bloodlust – I’m not going to pretend this story doesn’t hold a special place in my heart because it was the first solo Wolverine story I’d ever read, because it does, but the way Alan Davis draws the cold, yet supremely beautiful Canadian wilderness is fantastic. And the last page? Oh man.
Madison: Currently experiencing the snow you’re about to get! Lumberjanes #14 and #15 are an excellent little standalone story about a freak snow storm in the middle of summer. It’s probably not the weirdest shenanigan that the Lumberjanes have been involved in, but there story is, as usual, cute and funny with a good lesson to be learned by the end. Get it on Kindle #14 #15, or comiXology #14 #15.
Meghan: 30 Days of Night! Lots to choose from and start with volume 1 on comiXology.
Ash: Amazing Spider-Man #700.1 and #700.2. Spider-Man’s choice between responsibility and power are particularly important when NYC is buried in the snow. Get #700.1 and #700.2 on comiXology.
Javier: Chuck Dixon’s and Jorge Zaffino’s Winterworld. Oldie from the eighties. IDW collected it in a TPB about a year ago I think. Kind of like Mad Max with ice and snow. You can get it for Kindle and comiXology now.
Brett: I have to go with Snowpiercer! The world is destroyed in freeze and all of humanity that’s left is safe on a train which can never stop, or they die. You can buy volume 1 or 2 in print only it looks like. The movie is great though! You can watch that now on Amazon or on Netflix.
