What a week! What a week of comics! What a great list of spoiler-filled picks for you to check out, so, let’s get to it!
KAMANDI CHALLENGE #2 – Doug Zawisza
Isn’t THIS why we all read comics?!
About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity, an adjunct staff member of the Waiting for Doom podcast, and author of the Hawkman Companion from TwoMorrows. Twitter: @DZawisza
THE FEW #2 – James Kaplan
I wasn’t sure that right now I wanted to be reading a comic about a dystopian, post-America landscape, but after 2 issues of The Few I’m really hooked. It’s a story (by Sean Lewis) about the conflict between what’s left after the fall of the American government, and rebels on the other side, and a woman who’s caught in between. What really sells this book though is the art by Hayden Sherman (who’s apparently doing this book while still in college!). Sherman’s art is a real revelation. His style is very compelling, kind of a scratchy cross between Jock, Toby Cypress, and Manga influences. The lines are angular and the visuals are spare and striking. Sherman is a serious talent, and this is a strong story you should check out.
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.
CURSE WORDS #2 – Jill Pennington
This just got real. Wow. What in the hell can an evil wizard acting good wizard turned not a wizard possibly do next? Charles Soule and Ryan Browne are writing a volatile whimsical fantasy and it’s been a delight getting to know Wizord and Margaret (Wizord’s rat turned koala comrade.) We’re only two issues deep in this series so it’ll be quick for you to get caught up which you’ll want to do pronto!
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.
TEEN TITANS #5 – Kara Leavitt
The first arc of Teen Titans has done a great job of setting up the new team dynamic and giving the heroes a reason to work together. They’re able to be light-hearted yet tough, and they also support their teammates fully and want everyone to make the best decisions. I’m really excited to see where they go next, especially with Damian as leader and Aqualad joining soon!
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
JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #1 – Scott Keys
