So many great books to read this week. Such a great start to a new year. Let’s see what spoiler filled picks our contributors have for us this week shall we? Let’s get to it.
THE DAMNED #7 – Tom Barnett
I love this panel from The Damned. Brian Hurtt and Cullen Bunn having a bit of fun with their protagonist’s curse in a Weekend at Bernie’s way. Eddie is dead but can be brought back to life and they accidentally drop him over the balcony railing. Oops. A nice interjection of humor during a serious chase scene.
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
MISTER MIRACLE #6 – Doug Zawisza
Mister Miracle. Again. Every single comic book character should be so lucky to have a series handled by creators as enthusiastically invested as writer Tom King, artist Mitch Gerads, and letterer Clayton Cowles. And Barda. Every human being deserves their own version Barda. Reading these two in the pages of Mister Miracle #6 is the next best thing.
About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity and I dig a good roll call. Twitter: @DZawisza
ROYAL CITY #9 – James Kaplan
I’m really enjoying Royal City. Jeff Lemire is writer/artist here, and he’s crafting a story full of interesting and complex people. This is a quiet, emotional story full of a number of people struggling with their lives. There are great character interactions; a lot of things left unsaid. Lemire’s art here is as good as ever, as he uses his instantly recognizable, scratchy style to convey warmth, complex emotions, and really set the scene. This is a terrific book.
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.
RUNAWAYS #5 – Kat!
Nico’s buried feelings for Karolina are finally fully showcased.
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 and They Call Her…The Dancer. Follow me on @ComicUno.
OLD MAN HAWKEYE #1 – Aaron Meyers
I’m excited for more of this universe. Good 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
