Some weeks are just overwhelming with the amount of amazing comics we get to read. This was one of those weeks. We have some great spoiler filled picks from our contributors to check out so let’s get to it!
SAMURAI: THE ISLE WITH NO NAME #1 – Tommy Zimmer
“Samurai: The Isle with No Name” is (apparently) the fifth volume of stories told by Jean-Francois DiGiorgio and Frederic Genet. Issue one, released this week by Titan Comics is a gorgeous piece of storytelling. Check it out.
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
THE MIGHTY THOR #5 – Tom Barnett
This panel says it all. This line is not just for Odin, but for all of fandom that seemed think this character was merely gimmick. But you knew that! Thor is badass!
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
SHUTTER #19 – James Kaplan
Shutter is a very cool, weird, interesting, endlessly imaginative series. This was a particularly affecting issue as you see one character at three different points in time. It’s an emotionally affective, enlightening issue from writer Joe Keatinge, even though there’s still a ton of mystery about what’s going on. Artist Leila Del Duca and Colorist Owen Gieni do amazing work this issue. Del Duca’s art is as wild and emotional and fun as ever (with interesting layout choices), and Gieni uses three different color schemes to show different points in time, and they really set the atmosphere for those settings. It’s a great issue of a terrific series.
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.
MOCKINGBIRD #1 – Kulbir Mann
I was thoroughly uninterested in this comic as I progressed through the snippets of daily superhero life anecdotes, but then as the clues started to appear, I realised what was going on. The word puzzle box has been thrown around and it seems to mean that the story is not as we know it. This issue is a road map of the issues to come and I cannot wait to see how they unveil the grand plan. Excellent starter!
I’m not ashamed to say that I am interested to see what plot sparked this panel!
HEAD LOPPER#3 – Pete Buser
I never want Andrew MacLean to end Head Lopper. Even though there’s no head lopping in this panel.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
INFINITY ENTITY #1 – Aaron Meyers
I don’t know what to think of this but I think I liked it?
About Me: Aaron Meyers loves reading comics, collecting comics and talking about comics. He’s grateful to share his love of comics with all of his friends on the Internet.

And while you were taking the time to read this, Aaron went and bought all the best issues from your store’s dollar bin. You lose, Aaron wins. #AllTheComics
