Well when life has you down there’s one thing that helps chase the weight of the world away. No, not whiskey, its COMICS. We have great spoiler-filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!
HAWKMAN #1 – Doug Zawisza
Hawkman returns to the skies and the new comic book racks this week! Robert Venditti writes, Bryan Hitch draws, Andrew Currie inks, Alex Sinclair colors, and Comicraft letters the awesome adventures of the Winged Warrior! This is a gorgeous-looking book with a fast-paced, fun story that has swoops and swerves, a surprise cameo and a GIANT STONE GORILLA! Fun, fun, fun stuff. A brilliant fresh start for one of DC’s oldest heroes. New-reader friendly, most ages accessible, and packed with fun, Hawkman #1 is an impressive debut! With Hawkgirl returning alongside the Justice League last week and Hawkman flying solo this week, it is an awesome time to be a HAWKFAN!
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
COMPLETE HELLBOY SHORT STORIES – Tom Barnett
I’m cheating a bit here because I grabbed a panel from The Complete Hellboy Short Stories, which did drop this week, but the material is older. This is a favorite panel from The Midnight Circus story. It’s a foreshadowing of the future Hellboy / giant monkey encounters and I love Duncan Fegredo’s gorgeous artwork.
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
MISTER MIRACLE #9 – Pete Buser
Tom King and Mitch Gerads have been putting out my favorite superhero comic book for about a year now. The story and art work perfectly together in the nine panel layout. Gerads fits so much into every panel that you can’t help but stare. And of course Barda is just saying what we’re all thinking.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
BATMAN PRELUDE TO THE WEDDING: BATGIRL VS. THE RIDDLER #1 – Kat!
I’m not sure if this will play out in either Batgirl or Nightwing, but hey romance is in the air!
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.
