Straight up stone cold great week of comics! Great week of great spoiler filled picks from our contributors too! So, lets get to it!
EAST OF WEST #35 – Tom Barnett
This is a scene I never thought I would see! Death and his psycho son, Babylon, fishing?! Why does this bring me joy? I don’t know! But it does. East of West is always great.
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
HAWKEYE #12 – Doug Zawisza
Comics don’t always have to have an event or a crossover to be eventful, fun, or inclusive. Hawkeye #12, written by Kelly Thompson, drawn by Michael Walsh, colored by Jordie Bellaire, and lettered by Joe Sabino is proof positive. Wolverine crosses paths with Hawkeye, and the results become a comic book well worth reading, certainly worth enjoying, and almost emphatically worth sharing. As a big fan of All-New Wolverine, I recommend checking it out, after all, you like to read comics that are fun, right?
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
EAST OF WEST #35 – James Kaplan
Every time this book comes out I’m reminded how incredible it is. I really think this will end up being one of my all-time favorite comics. Writer Jonathan Hickman, artist Nick Dragotta and colorist Frank Martin continue to do fantastic work. This comic is big and complex (set in an alternate future America) and each character is weird and fascinating. Dragotta and Martin continue to be peerless in creating a detailed, exaggerated, fully realized vision of a very different future. This issue features the various horsemen of the apocalypse, including Death, and his son and a robot balloon. It’s awesome.
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.
BATMAN #35 – Pete Buser
It may have taken Tom King to get up to speed on Batman, but now he’s running on all cylinders. Batman and Catwoman getting engaged has hooked me, like I haven’t been for quite some time, on the Dark Knight’s adventures. Bringing Joëlle Jones into the mix as the artist takes this arc to the next level for me. The way she laid out this issue-long sword fight between Selina and Talia made me reread it three times.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser

DOCTOR STRANGE #381 – Aaron Long
Don Cates teams up with the art team from the amazing Vision – Gabriel Hernandez Walta and Jordie Bellaire – to throw the whole magical balance in the Marvel U onto its ear with a new Sorcerer Supreme and a new…vet? I’m in. I’m so in.
