THE HONOR ROLL: August 1, 2018 Releases

What an incredible week of comics we had. Who would have thought we would have so many wonderful spoiler-filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!


Robin and Superboy returned to the shelves with a 12-part maxi-series this week after their wonderful ongoing was cancelled and Adventures of the Super Sons #1, by Peter J Tomasi, Carlo Barberi and co didn’t disappoint. It has wit, warmth, wonderment… and a side-helping of meta. Jon Kent knows we missed him.

About Me: I’m a veteran (old!) comics fan who by day works as a non-mild-mannered (thoroughly obnoxious) journalist and by night blogs about comics at Too Dangerous For a Girl. Feel free to follow my witterings at @DangerousToo


KJ finally tells Mac what she saw in her vision – in such a KJ type of way.

THE UNEXPECTED #3 – Doug Zawisza

The Unexpected #3 has the one thing that’s better than dinosaurs – THANAGARIAN dinosaurs! Artist Cary Nord leads the charge for his tag team of inkers Mark Farmer and Scott Hanna to bring pictures to the panels of Steve Orlando’s dialog in this offbeat, breakneck, über-fun adventure. Jeromy Cox adds in colors so bold they’d never fit in a crayon box, and Carlos M. Mangual adds words balloons and sound effects for all the unexpected excellence! This book is a nice treat for fans of Dark Knights Metal and equally as enjoyable when taken on its own merit. If you haven’t checked it out yet, what are you waiting for?

About Me: I’m Doug Zawisza. I write for this here wonderful Comicosity site. I’ve also written a couple articles for Back Issue as well as the Hawkman Companion, both from TwoMorrows. Oh yeah, I also run a Doom Patrol blog at

THE SEEDS #1 Tom Barnett

Wow! This book really blew me away. I’m excited to see where it goes. This scene feels so otherworldly because of the tones Aja uses but then it’s contrasted by the dialogue which completely weighs into the overall story.


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

PAPER GIRLS #23 James Kaplan

This continues to be one of my very favorite comics. These 4 remarkable girls from 1988 have made their way to the distant future and things just keep getting weirder. This series is really fun and has a lot of heart (no surprise from Brian K. Vaughan). And the art from Cliff Chiang and Matt Wilson continues to be exceptional.


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. 

THE WALKING DEAD #182 Aaron Meyers

The evolution of this world is always engaging.


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
