A big week for media this week. Comics movies and everything else. We have some great contributions for you this week, let’s not waste any time and get right to the spoiler filled picks!
I HATE FAIRYLAND #3 – Hansel Moreno
I was expecting light hearted fun with Skottie Young’s I Hate Fairyland. This comic is so far beyond dark humor. I love it.
About Me: Hansel reads dozens of comics when not providing technical support. He is sorry to fall into the stereotype and makes up for it by jogging constantly and sewing when he has the chance. Read short reviews on his local comic book store web site, http://legacy-news.com/ and follow him on twitter @hanselthelost
PHONOGRAM: THE INVISIBLE GIRL #5 – Ben Diederich
Even if it resulted in a detour for WicDiv (a great detour, but one nonetheless), it’s been wonderful having a new series of Phonogram, and I’m going to miss it when it concludes.
About Me: @Punkrocksellout is a former punk rocker turned molecular biologist turned patent attorney turned father, who spends way too much time on twitter when he’s not out running barefoot.
KLAUS #2 – Tom Barnett
It was hard to pick just one panel because Klaus is a gorgeous book from front cover to back.
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
THE GODDAMNED #2 – James Kaplan
You think the world now is a brutal place? Just imagine the world that was so terrible that God decided that it was better to destroy this whole world and start again. That’s how bad it was, and that’s where the fantastic storytelling of Jason Aaron and r.m. Guera come in. This is a brutal, violent, dark world where even the supposed “righteous men” and pretty awful. These two worked together on “Scalped” and so they know something about complex, morally challenging worlds and they really create a sense of horror and urgency in the storytelling. Thus far they’re off to a brutally terrific, gory start.
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 panelpatter.com and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #46 – Kulbir Mann
Geoff Johns is at his epic writing best with this title, but it features an artist that can put his unique stamp onto anything and change everything you knew about it. This scene was beautiful and passionate, more than we see from heroes in love and the Trevor Diana scene that followed was as tense as it could be. Incredibly beautiful work.
About Me: I Spend the day as a surgeon operating on people, spend the night as a blogger operating on comics! Check out my blog www.houseofflyingscalpels.com or follow me @kooliebear
SOUTHERN CROSS # 6 – Pete Buser
Cloonan crushes it. Belanger brings it.
About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser
COPRA #25 – Tommy Zimmer
For 25 issues Michel Fiffe has been kicking out the jams in a entirely DIY monthly-ish comic. This giant sized anniversary issue is especially kick-ass. Hunt it down. Check it out. Whitehaus.Etsy.com
About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom
WEIRDWORLD #1 – Aaron Meyers
The art epically brings this series back and it couldn’t be more fun!

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.
