THE HONOR ROLL: December 17, 2014 Releases

Can you believe it’s still fall? Well that’s all about to change and now we get to the nitty gritty winter. We have some awesome pics from an awesome spoiler filled week of comics. Let’s get to it!

BATMAN #37 – Corey Fryia

I personally felt that Batman #37 was amongst the best single issues that Snyder, Capullo and crew have ever produced. This book was full of horror from cover to cover, but this panel was particularly creepy.


About Me: Corey Fryia is an independent comic book creator. He loves creator-owned comics and has a very manly beard. In his home town he is known as the “Sex Panther”. You can follow him (and his manly beard) on Twitter @coreyfryia

BATMAN & ROBIN #37 – Ken Godberson III

This arc was absolutely insane. Really, Tomasi and Gleason go full-out with not only the resurrection of Damian, but a lot of call backs to the last time Darkseid and Batman met face-to-face, Final Crisis (no, I’m not counting Johns’ JL arc). And it was all worth it in the end.


About Me: When he is not working at a library or on his Master’s Degree, Ken Godberson III is usually writing comics, prose and screenplays. He tends to be an expert on absolutely nothing except on why


When I heard that Neil Gaiman and J.H. Williams III were going to team-up on a “The Sandman” series, I vowed I would choose a panel from each new issue for the Honor Roll.  And by God, Vertigo won’t make a liar out of me just because they’re releasing one issue per year!
Look as this panel.  Look, I tell you.  This is the baby daddy of The Endless!


About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser

MS. MARVEL #10 – Kulbir Mann

This is such a wonderful book in that it taps into the classic youthful hero learning about their craft, and realizing that the secret lies in inspiring others. Kamala is so sweet, innocent and beautiful as she delivers her speech to get people fighting for her. The art is obviously wonderfully suited to this trope and I love her expressions and the sound effects that are depicted. It is just a fun and lovely book.


About Me: I Spend the day as a surgeon operating on people, spend the night as a blogger operating on comics! Check out my blog or follow me @kooliebear


The Multiversity: Thunderworld Adventures proved to me that the classic “Big Red Cheese” version of Captain Marvel (see, NOT SHAZAM, that’s the wizard) still works!  Loved this book so much, hope we get to see more of this version of Cap!


About Me: 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: / Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) / Google+: Scott Keys


“And then Emily was gone” wrapped up this week for us analogue readers in a completely unexpected fashion. John Lees, Iain Laurie, and Megan Wilson gave lovers of David Lynch, The Re-Animator, Cryptids, and Scotch something lovely and disturbing. Published by Comix Tribe. Check it out.
