THE HONOR ROLL: January 4, 2017 Releases

Ice storms. Heat waves, end times are upon us. At least we still have comics to keep us going. We have some great spoiler-filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!

SUPERMAN #14 – James Kaplan

The biggest smile I got from reading a comic was reading this week’s issue of Superman. I really have been loving the Superman comic since the beginning of DC rebirth, it’s everything I want from the character. He is optimistic, genuinely heroic, and has a e super-family. One of my favorite stories of the past several years was Multiversity, written by Grant Morrison and illustrated by many talented artists. This issue of Superman manages to bring those two different excellent things together, in a way that works terrifically. This story involves super men and women from across the multiverse, and is just great fun.

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. 

GREEN LANTERNS #14 – Kara Leavitt

The battle between Jessica Cruz and her anxiety has always been central to her character. This issue did a fantastic job developing Jessica further, showing that willpower is dominant within her, not fear, as she suspected. It’s incredibly powerful to see a character battle anxiety while still being a superhero.

About Me: Kara is a pre-vet sophomore at Tufts University. She loves reading comics in her spare time and frequenting her local movie theater. Follow her @karalea16

MOON KNIGHT #10 –  Tom Barnett

I can’t believe what Marvel is letting the creative team on Moon Knight do. This book has a very indie feel to it. You just don’t know what’s coming up, hence the panel I picked! Gorgeous art and crazy colors!

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 FLINTSTONES #7 – Aaron Meyers

The best DC book being made.

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
