THE HONOR ROLL: May 31, 2017 Releases

Incredible week of comics and movies! We have some great spoiler filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!

MOON KNIGHT #14 – Doug Zawisza

Ah, Moon Knight. If you’d been optioned for a multimedia empire, we might have gotten more than 14 issues. But these 14 issues are magnificent. One panel – one page – exquisitely sums up the mysterious wonder of this series and the creative collaboration of writer, artist, colorist, and letterer, all telling their just as much through what they choose not to put on the page as with what they give us. No series uses white space like this one, and no series is as gorgeous in the non-white spaces. This is one I’ll be going back to and enthusiastically recommending.

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

JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS #7 – Kat!

Melody pretends to be Wolverine while using her drumsticks as weapons.

About Me: I’m Kat! A YouTuber on Comic Uno and Comic Frontline, a podcaster on the Legends of Tomorrow Podcast, comic book editor on The Marvel Report, comic book critic on Newsarama, and writer/creator for comic book series Like Father, Like Daughter. Follow me on @ComicUno.

THE VISITOR #4 – Tom Barnett

The Visitor has been nothing like I expected, in a good way. It’s been a heartfelt and touching story. I also really love Paul Grist’s take on the Mignolaverse. This panel in the context of the story, just made your heart drop, like a brick into a pond.

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

SAGA #43 – James Kaplan

There’s nothing quite like Saga as far as the combination of humor and drama and action and absurdity and outrageous moments and smart social commentary. It’s great to have it back. It looks as fantastic as ever thanks to Fiona Staples who continues to do remarkable work. I’ve come to really love these characters and I enjoy the weird twists and turns they’re taking.

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. 

TRINITY ANNUAL #1 – Kara Leavitt

I love the idea that the Trinity are tied together by fate, meant to stand together. Trinity is a really interesting exploration into the connections between them, both in and out of costume, and reconnects and redefines their friendships and partnerships. But what really makes the Trinity so great is their willingness to sacrifice everything to save the world.

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 

THE FLASH #23 – Scott Keys

It was great seeing Barry & Hal together again in Flash #23 and the fallout from “The Button” continues with that shocking last page!

Scott Keys is a father, Butler University grad, pharmacist, and full-time comic nerd. You can follow his adventures around the spinner-rack and his Incoherent Comic Book Ramblings on: Twitter: @Like_car_Keys Tumblr:likecarkeys.tumblr.comInstagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys

ALIENS: DEAD ORBIT #2 – Aaron Meyers

Terrifying. Amazing.

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
