THE HONOR ROLL: April 5, 2017 Releases

What a wonderful week of comics! We have great and wonderful spoiler filled picks for you to check out. Let’s get to it!


And now for something completely different!

Rock Candy Mountain was so unique. A book about the devil chasing a hobo who is looking for Rock Candy Mountain! I can’t wait to read more. This panel is pretty indicative of the book, over the top and crazy compelling.

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

BATMAN #20 – Kara Leavitt

What a thrilling end to I Am Bane! Batman’s speech about prevailing over enemies that constantly tell him he can’t win is incredibly inspiring. Against all odds, Batman always wins, and that’s exactly what he does in this issue.

About Me: Kara is a pre-vet sophomore at Tufts University. She loves reading comics in her spare time and frequenting her local movie theater. Follow her @karalea16 

SUPERMAN #20 – James Kaplan

Since the start of DC Rebirth, Superman has been everything I hoped it would be and more. It’s brought fun and warmth and heart back to the character. This was another great issue which establishes the new status quo, and of course has a guest appearance from the World’s Greatest Detective and his surly son. The art from Patrick Gleason (with inks from Mick Gray and colors from John Kalisz) is just spectacular and really brings the whole Superman family to life, along with showing the absurdity of sitting in a dining room wearing superhero costumes. But seriously, why doesn’t Batman like pie? Pie is delicious. Eat the pie. You’re going to offend your hosts.

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 and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk. 

SUPERMAN #20 – Doug Zawisza

I’ll admit it, I enjoy submitting my Honor Roll picks just a little bit more whenever I can include a panel from a Superman comic. As Rebirth continues to roll and Superman continues to funnel optimism into the DC Universe, it’s even more enjoyable to have a message like this being broadcast loud and clear, especially in a situation where Superman and Batman are working together.

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

BLACK CLOUD #1 – Aaron Meyers

Color me interested.

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!
