What a wonderful week of comics! We have some awesome spoiler filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!
HARROW COUNTY #25 – Tom Barnett
Oh what a happy day to have a new issue of Harrow County. This panel from artist Tyler Crook perfectly depicts Emmy’s shock and horror. The scene is perfectly lit from a lower and off panel light source. This scene would’ve been perfect in black and white, but Crook’s colors just make it amazing.
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
MISTER MIRACLE #2 – James Kaplan
This is a great comic. In just one issue, we see the relentlessness and fatigue of war, we see treachery and deception, we see a little bit of Stockholm syndrome, and we see that Orion is a huge jerk. There’s even some moments of humor in here. Tom King is writing a terrific story, and it is brought to life by some amazing, detailed and weird art from Mitch Gerads. If you like interesting, thought-provoking comics, you should definitely be reading this book.
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.
MISTER MIRACLE #2 – Doug Zawisza
Despite giving us a Metron who resembles Burgess Meredith (or maybe because of this?) Mister Miracle #2 continues Scott Free’s existential investigation. Mister Miracle has cheated death (right?) but he’s not so sure that’s what he wants, or needs, nor is he certain of, well, anything. Previous Mister Miracle series have taken on the challenge of what is left after beating death, but this one immerses Scott Free in his own essence, with the reader handcuffed to the universe’s greatest escape artist the entire time. Tom King and Mitch Gerards are turning in masterful work here, and the celebration of the nine-panel page has never been more gripping.
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
RUNAWAYS #1 – Kat!
Runaways has many throwbacks for old school fans, but this time with a young adult flavor! This issue had a great focus on Nico as she navigates through the hardships of adulthood.
