It’s been busy here. Probably there too. We make time for each other, and first and foremost, comics. We have great spoiler-filled pics for you to check out, so let’s get to it!
DEPT H #15 – Tom Barnett
I feel like Matt and Sharlene Kindt are constantly trying to one up themselves with each issue. I really love the playfulness with the panels that Matt does.
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
SILVER SURFER #12 – James Kaplan
Marvel’s Silver Surfer is a truly special comic. And this issue was among the very best. What makes Silver Surfer such a special comic is the way in which each issue can have elements of joy, and sadness, and go from crazy Kirby-style fun to heady questions; Dan Slott has been a great writer on this book. What also (of course) really makes this comic is the stunning artwork from Mike and Laura Allred. Every page is filled with a hundred amazing different things, and they capture joy and melancholy all at once in an amazing pop-art way. This issue was a heartbreaking one, and also inspiring and compelling as it saw one character struggle and work through her grief and reach a state of acceptance and equanimity. That, and crazy worlds full of wonderful aliens. Like I said, it’s a special book.
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.
ARCHIE #21 – Kat!
The reveal of the devastating fate of Archie and Reggie’s drag race is heart breaking, and grips you for more.

CAVE CARSON HAS A CYBERNETIC EYE #9 – Doug Zawisza
Yet more Honor Roll awesomeness from DC’s Young Animal imprint with Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye #9. This issue continues the psychedelic subterranean adventure of Carson and crew. His ally Wild Dog claims a machete as his own, and that’s not even the weirdest, wildest thing to happen in this wonderfully unpredictable issue, written by Jon Rivera and drawn by Michael Avon Oeming.
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
SUPERMAN #25 – Scott Keys
Superman #25 was a great anniversary issue, not only displaying how great a hero Superman is, but how great a father and husband he is as well! This issue, once again, shows why the world STILL needs Superman!
