With great comics comes great spoiler filled picks. We have both for you this week. Let’s get to it!
THE UNSOUND #3 – Tom Barnett
The Unsound is so psychologically creepy. This panel feels like a perfect summation of the story so far. The background design feels like several of the paper plate mask of Xerxes is watching her and the reader. Couple that with the dialogue and boom, I’m feeling creeped out already.
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
AVENGERS #9 – Doug Zawisza
Avengers #9 carries the Secret Empire trade dress, but that doesn’t detour Mark Waid and Mike Del Mundo from delivering a nearly timeless tale packed with gorgeous imagery. If you’ve been missing out on this Avengers run, do yourself a HUGE favor and check it out, for the gorgeous Del Mundo work, if nothing else (truth be told, the stories are pretty darn entertaining too!).
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
JUPITER’S LEGACY 2 #5 – James Kaplan
It took a long time for this one to get here, but it was worth the wait. I’ve really enjoyed the Jupiters legacy series, as it’s an interesting and different take on superheroes. Anytime you can get new Frank Quitely art, it’s worth it. This is been a big, son, bombastic book with a lot of action and heart, and this issue nicely wraps up the current storyline. Apparently there’s more! I won’t hold my breath, but I’ll be happy to see new issues whenever they come out. Definitely a fun series with fantastic art.
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.
SUPERMAN #26 – Scott Keys
That moment in Superman #26 where Superman realizes that raising a son with superpowers isn’t as easy as Pa Kent made it look…PRICELESS!
Scott Keys is a father, Butler University grad, pharmacist, and full-time comic nerd.

JUPITER’S LEGACY 2 #5 – Pete Buser
It’s taken awhile for Mark Miller and Frank Quitely to get this issue out, but once again they remind us of how to do a superhero comic book right.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
MOTOR GIRL #7 – Kat!
Terry Moore gives the audience a glimpse at Sam’s mental cognition in this powerful scene where Sam still thinks she’s in Iraq.
About Me: I’m Kat!

DAREDEVIL #23- Kara Leavitt
I love that Soule is using both Matt Murdock and Daredevil in a fascinating court case to set a legal precedent. It’s such an interesting direction to take the character in, and allows Soule to showcase Matt’s skills as a lawyer and Daredevil’s crime fighting skills. Soule’s run on Daredevil has been incredible and I’m so eager to see how this story arc resolves.
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
