Another amazing week of comics. Some real fun spoiler filled picks from our contributors this week so let’s not waste any time and get right to it!
OLD MAN LOGAN #1 – Thomas Zimmer
Old Man Logan no. 1 by Bendis and Andrea Sorrentino was my favorite comic this week. Make Mine Marvel
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
DIVINITY #4 – Tom Barnett
Divinity was such a surprise of a story. It had way more heart and soul then I thought it would. The final issue of this first arc was touching and ominous all at once. The panel I picked sums up perfectly how I feel about this character and series. That Matt Kindt guy keeps writing great books!
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
THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #5 – Will Pheesh
It’s Mother’s Day, Endless style. Gaiman, Williams III, Stewart, and Klein, with help from Yow, Miller, and Bond, continue to tell a visually sumptuous story, packed with beautiful compositional and color varieties, and clever story beats. I laughed with pleasure at how Dream was navigated to safety. Great reading a story by such a powerfully creative team.
About Me: Will Pheesh wants you to be happy and well, and not just because it’s his profession. He can be found on Twitter @WillPheesh.
CHEW #49 – Kulbir Mann
The idea of the Incredible Expanding Dinner Table is such a hilarious one and over time there have been additional comics building into this giant picture. It is ideas like this that keep Chew refreshing and enjoyable but Layman has an incredible sense of timing. He knows when to take the readers down but also when to build them up again and after a few months of low mood and sad times, the finale to this issue brings sheer excitement once again! Oh it is on!
INFINITY GAUNTLET #1 – James Kaplan
This one I picked up out of curiosity and had no idea it would be this terrific. Great work from writer Gerry Duggan and artist Dustin Weaver. This story is a great story about a family sticking together in the midst of tragedy and is at turns tragic, heartfelt, moving and incredibly intense and action-packed. A great pickup.
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.
NOVA #31 – Ken Godberson III
Too often are the Big 2 criticized for not having enough books with family, hope and fun in them. I present my counter-argument.
About Me: When he is not working at a library or on his Master’s Degree, Ken Godberson III is usually writing comics, prose and screenplays. He tends to be an expert on absolutely nothing except on why Impulse is the greatest superhero ever. He can be found on Twitter @kengodbersoniii or on Tumblr at http://kengodbersoniii.tumblr.com/.
FIGHT CLUB 2 #1 – Pete Buser
I wasn’t sure whether or not Chuck Palahniuk could bring back his most well known creation more than fifteen years later and still have Him <Tyler> hit home. Don’t worry, he’s done it and Cameron Stewart is the perfect artistic foil to bring this world back to life with all of its pitch black humor.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
DEADLY CLASS #13 – Aaron Meyers
Holy crap that was brutal. Can I take next issue?
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. From Twitter at @aaronmeyers, to his new podcast, Comics Therapy with Andrea Shockling, it’s all about the love of comics. He also loves his family, especially his wife, Chrissy Meyers. 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
