THE HONOR ROLL: April 12, 2017 Releases

What a great week for comics. Incredible even! We have some awesome spoiler-filled picks for you check out, so let’s get to it!

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #4 – Doug Zawisza

It’s been a couple issues since we’ve had Ivan Reis on the art chores for Justice League of America, but it’s great to have him back for Justice League of America #4. Steve Orlando wraps up the first arc, with a few twists and some fun.

ACTION COMICS #977 – Scott Keys

Action Comics #977 was a great read! It worked as an epilogue to Superman Reborn, a retrospective of Superman’s (revised) origin, and set-up the next storyline brilliantly! Also, really enjoyed Churchill’s art here, seems like ages since I’ve seen his art.

Scott Keys is a father, Butler University grad, pharmacist, and full-time comic nerd. You can follow his adventures around the spinner-rack and his Incoherent Comic Book Ramblings on: Twitter: @Like_car_Keys Tumblr:likecarkeys.tumblr.comInstagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys

SILVER SURFER #10 – James Kaplan

Dan Slott and the Allreds have done it again. Another great, emotional, gorgeous issue of the Silver Surfer. I love the relationship between the Surfer and Dawn Greenwood, and the art from the Allreds is wonderfully colorful, dynamic and emotional.  You need to be reading this book.

About Me: James is a lawyer by day, and an avid reader of comics whenever he can.  He loves his family, friends, and getting all of them into comics. He writes longer comics reviews at panelpatter.com and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk. 

GREEN VALLEY #7 – Jill Pennington

This series has been a blast to read! Each issue has ended with a mini twist you don’t see foreshadowed. Max Landis warned us about these twists in the first issue surrounding the story’s plot and so far he’s kept me guessing, intrigued and (most important) reading! In this issue, our protagonist is now back and our merry bunch concoct a scheme to kill the bad guy. The typical good-guy vs. bad-guy trope and then wham! Twist. What is going to happen to the already fragile time-line? If you’re into Knights, magic and “dragons” start reading this series! Hurry.

About Me: I’m Jill; A first time contributor. I sell comics and books by day at Pieces & Pages and fill the rest of my time making my fiancé play boards games with me, reading and hugging my cats. If you’re nearby Livonia, MI stop into the store for a high-five or reach out online @PiecesAndPages.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS #6 – Kat!

This is the best issue of the series to date! It tackles some great emotions from the Parker family (especially Mary Jane), while also bringing an entertaining team up between the Spider family and a classic form of the X-Men.

About Me: I’m Kat! A YouTuber on Comic Uno and Comic Frontline, a podcaster on the Legends of Tomorrow Podcast, comic book editor on The Marvel Report, comic book critic on Newsarama, and writer/creator for comic book series Like Father, Like Daughter. Follow me on @ComicUno.

SUPERGIRL #8 – Kara Leavitt

It was absolutely fantastic to see Kara and Clark team up in this issue and for Kara to spend time with her extended family. Her interactions with Jon are particularly adorable, and she answered all of his burning questions about life on Krypton. The relationship between Kara and Clark is a lot of fun of fun to read, especially with Jon and Lois also in the picture.

About Me: Kara is a pre-vet sophomore at Tufts University. She loves reading comics in her spare time and frequenting her local movie theater. Follow her @karalea16 

THE UNSTOPPABLE WASP #4 – Aaron Long

This book is freakin’ fantastic. Seriously, I laugh constantly while reading and this comic makes me happier than damn near anything in the industry. Fab-u-lous.

HELLBOY AND THE B.P.R.D. – 1954 – GHOST MOON #2 – Aaron Meyers
