Almost too much good entertainment these days. Comics no exception. We have some great picks from our contributors this week, let’s get to the spoiler filled picks!
VADER DOWN #1 – Corey Fryia
Vader is trapped on a planet full of rebels…or is the planet full of rebels trapped with Vader? This issue is a perfect example Darth Vader’s power and skills as pilot. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
About Me: Corey Fryia is an independent comic book creator. He loves creator-owned comics and has a very manly beard. In his home town he is known as the “Sex Panther”. You can follow him (and his manly beard) on Twitter @coreyfryia
VADER DOWN #1 – Tom Barnett
Bad Ass! Thank you Jason Aaron for writing Vader as he was meant to be, Bad Ass!
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 #17 – Kulbir Mann
I am finally pleased to see Kate finally develop the courage to own her family name and bring them altogether. It has always been a little difficult to process but the plot lines are slowly coming together and it is exciting to see her siblings all work as one. Del Duca’s art is as gorgeous as ever.
RACHEL RISING #37 – Tommy Zimmer
For 37 issues Terry Moore has been producing quality storytelling. Find another DIY creator that has been this consistent this many issues into their story they are trying to tell. Check it out, it’s good stuff. Hail Malus.
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
THE MIGHTY THOR #1 – James Kaplan
This was a fun debut issue. I like Jane Foster as Thor, and the complicated balance between her struggle with illness and her strength as Thor, and the effect that one is having on the other. Jason Aaron continues to tell an entertaining story about Thor and about the interaction between the various realms (Asgard, Midgard, etc.); there’s a lot of subtle and sneaky politics going on, and it’s all beautifully illustrated by Russell Dauterman.
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 AND ROBIN ETERNAL #7 – Scott Keys
Harper Row makes this look good! Digging what’s going on in Batman and Robin Eternal 7!
About Me: 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.com Instagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys
STAR WARS #12 – Fractures
Loads of good comics out this week. I was convinced that my pick would come from Vader Down #1, but seeing this in Star Wars 012, how could I go with anything else?
They’ve all got lightsabers!! Just the prospect of this happening made me giggle inside with absolute glee.
plus that is exactly what Han would say in this situation.
About Me: I’m @fractures, a proud member of #HorizonLabs and I love comics. And I fix broken bones, but that’s not important.
SECRET WARS TOO #1 – Aaron Meyers
I’m a sucker for parody comics and this one had some great talent working on 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. 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
Thanks as always for reading and sharing the most honored comics of the week with us. Same time next week!
