THE HONOR ROLL: January 13, 2016 Releases

We had a great week of comics and some epic stories were told. We have a great list of spoiler filled panels so let’s get to it!

SECRET WARS #9 – Tommy Zimmer

Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic wraps up Secret Wars this week with the super-sized ninth issue. This is how you do an event. Perfect ending that forges a way for an exciting future. Excelsior!!!


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

SECRET WARS #9 – Tom Barnett

There’s no better panel that graphically sums up Hickman’s Secret Wars event then this. Reed and Doom always intertwined. 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

SECRET WARS #9 – James Kaplan

This is it. The big conclusion, months in the making. And guess what? It delivered. This was a really satisfying conclusion not just to the Secret Wars miniseries but to Jonathan Hickman’s 5 year run first at Marvel, first on Fantastic Four, then on Avengers/New Avengers. In particular, this issue really wrapped up Hickman’s take on the complex Reed Richards/Doctor Doom relationship. Hickman does “huge” better than just about anyone but this issue was also full of wonderful small moments, and callbacks to earlier issues. The art from Esad Ribic and Ive Svorcina was terrific as well, and made this an excellent conclusion, and the end of an era.


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

SECRET WARS #9 – Kulbir Mann

I would like to say goodbye to the multiverse as we know it and hello to the multiverse as we kinda already know it. The final battle was nothing to do with Tony and Steve in the end but more Reed and Victor. But it was damn good and incredibly epic. As a final farewell, this picture stood out for me as the most epic of the series.


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 or follow me @kooliebear

SECRET WARS #9 – Aaron Meyers

Epic isn’t a word that can be used here. Its more than epic. It’s bigger than everything. Perfection.
