THE HONOR ROLL: August 2, 2017 Releases

When times of strife and trouble come to us, we have comics to help us through the storm. We have great spoiler filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!

EAST OF WEST #34 – Tom Barnett

Chills. East of West is the epic you wanted it to be. The epic you hoped it would be. Chills.

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


When it comes to the Honor Roll, I look for fun, and I sure found it in Generations: Banner Hulk and the Totally Awesome Hulk. Written by Greg Pak – no stranger to Hulks – and drawn by Matteo Buffagni is a fine first step in the Generations initiative. Here’s hoping the other specials measure up.

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


Heroes aren’t the only people who have to make sacrifices as Deathstroke realizes he needs a change in his life because his family has gone through too much.


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. Follow me on @ComicUno.

EAST OF WEST #34 – James Kaplan

Damn, this was an intense issue. If you’re not reading this book, I’m not even going to try to catch you up on it. However, if you’re not reading this book, you’re missing out on one of the very best comics of the past 10 years. This is a complex, fascinating alternate history world that Jonathan Hickman has constructed, and the art from Nick Dragotta and colorist Frank Martin is expressive and intense. Dragotta is one of the best sequential storytellers you’ll see. This was an explosive conclusion to the current arc, and this is a book you definitely should be reading.

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. 

BATMAN #28 – Scott Keys

Batman #28 continues “The War of Jokes & Riddles,” which includes Batman taking out Deathstroke & Deadshot! King & Janin have done an amazing job with this arc!

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

DEAD OF WINTER #1– Aaron Meyers

A great first issue. Great art and great writing. A lot of fun.

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
