THE HONOR ROLL: August 17, 2016 Releases

There is so much great stuff out each week it’s hard to pick what’s the best! We have some great spoiler filled picks for you like always, so let’s get to it!

BLACK HAMMER #2 – Tom Barnett

This panel really is a gut punch in the context of the story. All the years of frustration that the characters are suffering from, especially Gail culminate into this rain soaked scene. Powerful storytelling in just two issues. Black Hammer is just perfect.


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

BLACK WIDOW #6 – James Kaplan

Another great issue from Mark Waid, Chris Samnee and Matt Wilson, one of the best all-around creative teams in comics. Natasha is all about the lies and secrets and letting you think you’ve got the upper hand, and that’s explored to great effect in this issue. The whole team does great work here, as it’s a clever and truly gorgeous book. Samnee and Wilson create a perfect look for an espionage book here, and I can’t recommend this one highly enough.


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. 


My absolute love of DC Rebirth continues with the triumphant return of the Maid of Might by Orlando and Lupacchino in Supergirl Rebirth #1! I thoroughly enjoyed season 1 of the Supergirl TV show & it seems that Orlando is blending the TV & comic universes. I’m stoked to see what comes next!



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

BATMAN #5 – Pete Buser

I never knew I needed to see Alfred dressed as Batman until Tom King and David Finch showed me.


About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser


Not for kids. But for anyone old enough to enjoy awesome comics..
