THE HONOR ROLL: August 3rd, 2016 Releases

So many conventions this time of year, it’s a wonder they have time to make any comics! But they do, and we have some great spoiler filled picks for you to check out this week, so let’s get to it!

MOON KNIGHT #5 – Tom Barnett

Moon Knight is such a good read. Lemire and Smallwood seem to possess a great love and deep understanding of the Moon Knight mythos. This panel carries the emotional weight of the whole issue. It’s like a snapshot from a family album that is long gone, but not forgotten. 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

PAPER GIRLS #8 – James Kaplan

If you’re not reading Paper Girls, you’re totally missing out on one of the most interesting, weird, fun, books out there. Brian K. Vaughan knows how to tell an engaging story, and the art from Cliff Chiang and colorist Matt Wilson is just spectacular. There are three different versions of the same character running around right now, there are giant creatures fighting in the river, and there’s adventures and weirdness at abandoned shopping mall. Great issue with terrific story and gorgeous illustration.


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. 


For me, DC Rebirth has been just about perfect, blending the old with the new in ways that seemingly everyone enjoys. With Harley Quinn: Rebirth #1, Conner, Palmiotti & Hardin show why they’re perfect for Harley & that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Keep doing what you’re doing!


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

KILL OR BE KILLED #1 – Pete Buser

It’s not often that I go into a comic with no knowledge of what it’s about.  But I did with Kill or be Killed and I couldn’t be happier.  If you didn’t already know, you should always pick up the new books from the team of Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser.


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

4001 A.D.: WAR MOTHER #1 – Aaron Meyers

Valiant keeps making amazing comics that everyone should be reading. This was a great first issue.


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!
