What a massive amazing week of comics we had! Events! Cliffhangers! Spoiler filled picks from our contributors! This one has it all, so let’s get to it!
THE DAMNED #2 – Tom Barnett
I just love Brian Hurtt’s artwork and Bill Crabtree’s colors. This is a moody atmospheric introduction to Big Al in this second run of The Damned.
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
SPACE RIDERS: GALAXY OF BRUTALITY #2 – James Kaplan
This continues to be a wild, weird heavy metal space fever dream brought to life by writer Fabian Rangel, artist Alexis Ziritt and letterer Ryan Ferrier. We get a lot of interesting back story, strong dialogue and character interaction from Rangel. And the art? It continues to be completely out-there and insanely colorful and full of cosmic imagination. Alexis Ziritt is a huge talent and doing great work. If you’re looking for a terrific read and a great change of pace from the usual superhero crossover, you should absolutely be reading Space Riders.
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.
BUG! THE ADVENTURES OF FORAGER #2 – Doug Zawisza
Mother box says this way – right into BUG! The Adventures of Forager #2 by all the Allred’s (or at least three of them).
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
ALL-NEW WOLVERINE #21 – Kara Leavitt
The interactions between Deadpool and Gabby are hilarious and so much fun. The scenes they have together add a lot of humor and lighten up the serious tone. This series has been so consistently good and I love seeing Gabby playing a bigger and bigger role in the book and in Laura’s life.
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
BETTY AND VERONICA #3 – Kat!
Betty and Veronica have a pretty unique and multi-dimensional friendship, and this issue of Betty & Veronica presents this wonderfully where the two girls show their ugliest sides to reveal the true beauty of their friendship.
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.

DARK DAYS: THE FORGE #1 – Scott Keys
Dark Days: The Forge #1 was a masterclass in both story and art, but the best part of the whole thing? PLASTIC MAN IS BACK! Can’t wait to see where this goes!
