THE HONOR ROLL: December 30, 2015 Releases

It’s fitting that the end of the year it was a small week of comics and a small list of spoiler filled entries. Let’s get it!

EAST OF WEST #23 – James Kaplan

This was a less action-packed issue of East of West than the last one but still quite compelling. Plans are moving forward, and believers in The Message are making their moves and getting ready for the next big meeting. There’s a lot going on in this story and I think it benefits from being read in big chunks, but it continues to be one of the most complex, compelling, gorgeously illustrated comics out there.

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

SQUADRON SUPREME #2 – Tommy Zimmer

James Robinson is off to a hell of a start so far with Squadron Supreme. There is a sense this comic will be off formula and anything goes. Beautifully illustrated by Leonard Kirk. Squadron Supreme number 2 is my pick of the week.


About Me: I’m Tommy. I love comics. Enjoy every sandwich. Follow me @VictorVonZoom

LAZARUS #21 – Aaron Meyers

Every issue gets better and better. Amazing.


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
