Troubling time. We live in troubling times. But we have comics. And we have spoiler-filled picks from our great contributors to check out, so let’s get to it!
B.P.R.D. THE DEVIL YOU KNOW #8 – Tom Barnett
For those looooong time Mignolaverse readers, we know there’s more than one trinity in comics. This is a very special moment to have Abe, Liz, and Hellboy back together. Even if it is for one last hurrah.
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
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 – Kat!
I loved the attention to detail with this panel. Peter says something is missing and then the panel zooms into MJ’s hand. THE RING IS MISSING, THE MARRIAGE IS MISSING!
About Me: I’m Kat! A YouTuber on Comic Uno and Comic Frontline, a podcaster on the Legends of Tomorrow Podcast and upcoming Titans Podcast, comic book editor on The Marvel Report, comic book critic on Newsarama, and writer/creator for comic book series Like Father, Like Daughter and They Call Her…The Dancer. Follow me on @ComicUno.
SUPERMAN #1 – James Kaplan
When Brian Michael Bendis was first announced as the new superman writer, I was a little skeptical. And his first story in Action Comics #1000 wasn’t much to write home about. But, his Man of Steel miniseries was a lot of fun, and the strong work continues this week in Superman #1, with art from the terrific Ivan Reis. Bendis really has a nice handle on the voice of Clark Kent/Superman (spoilers, they’re the same guy!) and gives him and all the characters in the book a lot of personality and humanity. And Reis brings his A-game to show dynamic, action-packed super heroics. This was a very fun read.
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.
HAWKMAN #2 – Doug Zawisza
Hawkman. Again? Still? It doesn’t matter. In Hawkman #2, we’re getting the high-flying adventures of Carter Hall as Hawkman, written by Robert Venditti and drawn by Bryan Hitch. And there’s ancient Egypt. And mysteries. And maybe even dinosaurs. Comics, yeah!
About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity and I dig a good roll call. Twitter: @DZawisza
THE FLASH #50 – Scott Keys
Flash #50 was an excellent ending for “Flash War,” and most importantly…IMPULSE IS BACK! Bart Allen finally makes his return, so the rest of the Flash Family shouldn’t be to far behind (I hope!).
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:

Great reset to Peter. I’m interested.
