THE HONOR ROLL: August 16, 2017 Releases

When I find myself in times of trouble, comic books come to me, showing arts of wisdom, let us see! We have spoiler filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!

JACK KIRBY’S 100 – THE SANDMAN #1 – Doug Zawisza

Very few comics can win my Honor Roll nomination so deftly and effectively in one panel as Jack Kirby’s 100 – Sandman #1 did this week. Written by Dan Jurgens and drawn by Jon Bogdanove, this story leaps into imagination and celebrates the wonder of Jack Kirby’s creations!


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

SILVER SURFER #13 – James Kaplan

This book is everything I want in a comic. I really think that as artists, Mike and Laura Allred really bring to the page the kind of joy and imagination that Jack Kirby brought to comics. And this book is absolutely my favorite work from talented writer Dan Slott. It’s got so much heart and humor and silver-age craziness and emotion in every issue. This issue was lovely and fun and completely heartbreaking. This is a comic that’s just bursting with imagination. It’s almost over – do yourself a favor and go back and read this whole run. You won’t regret it.

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. 

BATWOMAN #6 – Kat!

Kate talks about what the Bat symbol means to her, and the important impact it had on her life.

About Me: I’m Kat! A YouTuber on Comic Uno and Comic Frontline, a podcaster on the Legends of Tomorrow Podcast and upcoming Titans Podcast, comic book editor on The Marvel Report, comic book critic on Newsarama, and writer/creator for comic book series Like Father, Like Daughter.

SILVER SURFER #13 – Tom Barnett

What a heartfelt read this comic has been. I love the heroic and resolute feel of these ending panels. The Surfer won’t be denied and here we fly following of all things, Galactus, into an epic conclusion! Bravo!


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

DARK NIGHTS: METAL #1 – Scott Keys

Dark Nights: Metal #1 was pretty awesome! I really dig what Snyder & Capullo are doing, and can’t wait for the next installment! I think any comic fan can pick this up and enjoy it, but for long time DC fans (like myself), you feel just how epic this will be!


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.comInstagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys

DIVINITY #0 – Pete Buser

Matt Kindt has been blowing it out of the park with his Divinity series.  A big part of that has been the artistic talent.  This is no exception, and Renato Guedes is going next level.

ULTIMATES 2 #100 Aaron Meyers

What an epic series. I loved everything about it. Great final issue of this volume.
