Some really wonderful books out this week! Some really wonderful spoiler filled picks from our contributors too! Let’s get to it!
THE FADE OUT #10 – Tom Barnett
With just a few issues left The Fade Out just keeps getting better.

SECRET WARS: AGENTS OF ATLAS #1 – Scott Keys
Secret Wars: Agents of Atlas #1 had a gorilla in a jetpack, your argument is invalid 😉

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
JUSTICE LEAGUE #45 – James Kaplan
I started reading Justice League at the beginning of the New 52, was off it for a little while, but I’ve come back with the Darkseid War, and I’m so glad I did. This is what I want from a Justice League comic – it’s the big, fun, kinda dumb (but in a smart way) action movie of DC comics, where something ridiculous happens every page. Superman has been turned evil by the fires of Apokalips, Batman knows everything and is currently Metron (or Metron-like in his power), Flash has been turned into the Black Racer (i.e, Death). It’s a whole lot of craziness but Geoff Johns and Francis Manipaul (previous art was from Jason Fabok) are doing an excellent job keeping it under control. Manipaul has terrific, gorgeous art this month that’s a change from the more typical (but also excellent) superhero art that Fabok has been doing. It’s a fun, crazy read.
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.
KARNAK #1 – Tommy Zimmer
We know how this works, nothing last forever. But while it’s happening Warren Ellis and Gerardo Zaffino’s Karnac is just the type of nihilistic yuck fest I was hoping for. Yeah it’s funny. And Dark. And I love it, for however long it last. Number 1 just out. Grab it. Or not. Doesn’t matter we all die alone.
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
KARNAK #1 – Pete Buser
I have loved the Inhumans for quite some time and Karnak in particular. I never thought I’d see the day when he would star in his own series. Many thanks to Warren Ellis and Gerardo Zaffino for showing everybody how great of a character he can be.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
BIZARRO #5 – Kulbir Mann
Duarte’s art is simply wonderful as has completely overtaken my concerns about this being a real Bizzaro story. The friendship between the two is all important and the way they look at one another its simple and effective. It is a shame it will finish…
WEIRDWORLD #5 – Aaron Meyers
What an amazing series. I want more. Lots more.
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
