Blown away. That’s what we said this week by the awesome comics we got to read. We have some mind blowing spoiler filled picks by our contributors for you to check out so lets get to it!
EAST OF WEST #39 – James Kaplan
Jonathan Hickman, Nick Dragotta – Image Comics
Accept no substitutes. The best comic on the stands is back. I enjoy lots of comics, and then I read East of West and I feel like most comics creators are playing checkers, and Jonathan Hickman and company are playing five-dimensional wizard chess. This series is complex and weird and has humor and heart and is telling a story that is nothing short of gigantic. I’m glad it’s back and I’m thrilled to see where it goes.
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.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #10 – Doug Zawisza
Scott Snyder, Francis Manapul – DC Comics
About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity and I dig a good roll call. Twitter: @DZawisza
TEEN TITANS #23 – Martin Gray
Adam Glass, Bernard Chang, Scott Hanna, Hi-Fi, Rob Leigh – DC Comics
More than you ever wanted to know about superhero toilet habits, courtesy of writer Adam Glass, artists Bernard Chang and Scott Hanna, colorist Hi-Fi and letterer Rob Leigh in Teen Titans #23.
About Me: I’m a veteran (old!) comics fan who by day works as a non-mild-mannered (thoroughly obnoxious) journalist and by night blogs about comics at Too Dangerous For a Girl. Feel free to follow my witterings at @DangerousToo
RUNAWAYS #14 – Kat!
Rainbow Rowell, David Lafuente – Marvel Comics
All the Runaways have grown as characters, even Old Lace. Old Lace was defined by her relationship with Gert, but when Gert pushes Old Lace away it’s Chase that greets her with open arms. I love their connection!
