What a spooky week for comics! Spooky good spoiler filled picks for you to check out from our contributors so let’s get to it!
BLACK MAGICK #1 – Ben Diederich
Modern day witch that’s also a detective, with a compelling story written by Greg Rucka and beautifully illustrated by Nicola Scott? I’m all in for this series!
About Me: @Punkrocksellout is a former punk rocker turned molecular biologist turned patent attorney turned father, who spends way too much time on twitter when he’s not out running barefoot.
HELLBOY AND THE B.P.R.D. 1953: THE PHANTOM HAND & THE KELPIE – Corey Fryia
Look…even Hellboy deserves a nap after battling a giant demon, ok?
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
PAST AWAYS #7 – Tom Barnett
Past Aways is one of my favorite books. With Matt Kindt writing and Scott Kolins art you can’t go wrong. Here we get to see a bit of Marge tearing shit up! Finally, they let her loose a bit.
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
JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE DARKSEID WAR: BATMAN #1 – Scott Keys
Been really enjoying Darkseid War & Justice League: Darkseid War – Batman #1 follows the Bat-God as he uses his new-found powers to further his mission. But even with powers, he’s still a jerk to Jim Gordon.
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
ART OPS #1 – Tommy Zimmer
“Art Ops” by Shaun Simon and Michael Allred snaps with joyful absurdism. This is Pure fun. Go get you some. Can’t wait for the second issue.
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
ART OPS #1 – James Kaplan
This was definitely the most weird, interesting, original comic I read this week. In this world, the people depicted in paintings are real, and they can come and go from paintings and just walk among us. Shaun Simon provides a clever script that sets up all sorts of mysteries, and Mike and Laura Allred do what they do best. They bring to life stuff that seems to come from the craziest place in your imagination, and they do it with visual wit, colors that pop and so much unique style. If you enjoyed Madman or iZombie this is definitely one you’ll want to try.
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.
BLACK MAGICK #1 – Pete Buser
Most people would turn their phone to vibrate when attending a celebration of the fall equinox, or Mabon as Wiccans call it. I’m definitely looking forward to more of this book from Greg Rucka and Nicola Scott.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
PREZ #5 – Aaron Meyers
I don’t read a ton of DC books but this is one of my favorites of any publisher. I wish it would run for 200 issues.
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!
