THE HONOR ROLL: December 9, 2015 Releases

What a great week for comics! We have great spoiler filled picks from our contributors this week so lets get to it before these hot hot books cool off!

SECRET WARS #8 – Tom Barnett

Wow! What a great moment as Doom shuts Thanos up in one move. Secret Wars has had some great moments and I hope Doom has a few more left.


About Me: I’m Tom. Slightly addicted to comics, Doctor Who, Star Wars and Star Trek. I also try to spend some time behind the lens of my camera. Love Bronze Age comics and the Black Hole movie from Disney. Follow me @tphoto10

THE ULTIMATES #2 – James Kaplan

This is one of my favorite books of the Marvel relaunch. It’s smart, huge in scope, well-written (by Al Ewing) and has epic, larger than life art from Kenneth Rocafort. It fills a real hole in my reading that’s left by the end of the Jonathan Hickman Marvel-verse. This book is about taking chances and exploration and solving problems; even more than New Avengers, it feels like a spiritual sequel to Hickman’s run on Fantastic Four. Considering that’s probably my favorite run on any superhero book, The Ultimates is off to a fantastic start.


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 and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk. 

SCARLET WITCH #1 – Kulbir Mann

Have you ever seen such a beautiful night scene? That is what Del Rey brings to this book together with her slightly off key human interpretation but there is such textural delight in all her scenes. I am hoping the magical aspect of Scarlet Witch suite her style because it takes you down a dark disturbing alley. One that Wanda may not be ready for.


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


Looking Batman and Robin Eternal, and issue 10 peels back some more of the mystery. I’m so glad Jean-Paul Valley is canon again (one of my favorite additions to the Batman mythos), and I’m curious to see what trouble Tim’s “nerd skillz” have gotten them into!


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 Instagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys

HEAD LOPPER # 2 – Pete Buser

They don’t call it “Head Lopper” for nothing.


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

THE ULTIMATES #2 – Aaron Meyers

One of the most surprising books put out by marvel right now. Wow.
