The dies of the season are starting to turn. The comics are heating up and so are the spoiler filled picks we have from our contributors, so let’s get to it!
THE TERRIFICS #2 – Doug Zawisza
Four FANTASTIC characters brought together to explore strange new locations? Amazing art and fun writing? Kirby Krackle? Terrifics #2 has it ALL, my friends, and then some. Drawn by Ivan Reis (with an assist from José Luís), inked by Vicente Cifuentes and Jordi Tarragona, colored by Marcelo Maiolo, scripted by Jeff Lemire, and lettered by Tom Napolitano, this comic is a wild romp, that keeps getting wilder. I was stoked when this book was announced, and it has lived up to my expectations and way, way beyond. Do yourself a favor, pick up Terrifics and remind yourself just how much fun superhero comics can be.

MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS #25 – Kat!
What a great way to start this epic event for the Power Rangers! I love the spacing Daniele Di Nicuolo provides with this last page. It really brings the emotions needed.

BLACK MAGICK #11 – Tom Barnett
I know I’ve gushed about Nicola Scott’s artwork before but how can one stop! Look at all that luscious detail! And I love her use of color to infer magic in use. However, you could strip it down to bare bones and the scene would still convey its meaning and mood.
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
JESSICA JONES #18 – James Kaplan
This is a character that Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos created around 15 years ago, and as Bendis’ run at Marvel is coming to a close, they tell a sweet, funny, redemptive final story. This has been a great book, and I highly recommend it. This is Bendis at his best – chatty, funny, dark, insightful. Jessica Jones is a great character and I’ll Bendis’ voice on her character.
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.

Not the best book but maybe the most epic of the week.
