The season is changing but the comics come as they do every week. Amazing comics and we have amazing picks with spoiler filled panels for you to enjoy. So let’s get to it!
GRAYSON #12 – Matt Santori-Griffith
Anything I like, Bruce? Hubba hubba.
About Me: Matt Santori-Griffith has been reading comic books since his 8th birthday and consequently considers himself an organized hoarder, much to the chagrin of his husband and two fat little cats. He is a Chicago native, classically trained artist and photographer, and full-time content marketer and writer. He was sure as a young child he would develop super-powers one day, but it has not (yet) come to pass. He is also apparently destined to die accidentally, buried under a dislodged stack of comic book boxes. Until then, Matt can be found talking about all manner of things he loves on Twitter.com under the mask of @FotoCub, on Google+ infrequently, and as senior editor at Comicosity.com.
GRAYSON #12 – Kulbir Mann
I have stated that this book is the new best Bat book out there today, and from a nostalgic perspective it certainly is. The love and pain of Dick reuniting with his family was so visceral and wonderfully drawn…but the moment I really felt empathy with was with Damien’s hug. I love it when a comic almost makes me cry.
HELLBOY IN HELL #8 – Tom Barnett
Truly one of the great artists and storytellers, any chance to read a fully illustrated comic from Mike Mignola is a treat! I found myself immersed in and by this panel. The darkness feels overwhelming, especially leading off the right side of the panel. And the arches are just crazy. They’re nicely detailed while the rest of the panel is more vague yet emotional.
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
NAMELESS #5 – James Kaplan
This is such a weird, unsettling, existentially troubling series and I love it so much. Grant Morrison is telling a great, scary, ominous and complex story, with fantastic art from Chris Burnham and colors by Nathan Fairbairn. Burnham and Fairbairn are doing some of the best work I’ve ever seen from them, it’s genuinely scary and visually complex and so engaging. Humanity is totally screwed in this story but it’s a great 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.
WEIRDWORLD #4 – Tommy Zimmer
Weirdworld has such breathtaking art by Mike Del Mundo that it perhaps overshadows a fantastic adventure story by up and comer Jason Aaron. Fantastic story. This is the event we all deserve. Weirdworld number 4 is my pick of the week.
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
OVER THE GARDEN WALL #2– Aaron Meyers
Its rare that a great TV show has a great comic book too. But here it is.
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!
