THE HONOR ROLL: January 6, 2016 Releases

We’re back and better than ever with these spoiler filled picks for you to check out! Let’s get to it!

THE VISION #3 – Tommy Zimmer

The Vision, by Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta is the best ongoing that Marvel is producing.  Number 3 came out this week. It’s a blast. That’s all.


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

PAPER GIRLS #4 – Tom Barnett

Papergirls is soooo crazy! I never saw something like this coming when I opened up to page one. Great art and gorgeous colors. Love it!


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 VISION #3 – James Kaplan

I’m not sure how many people are reading this book, it feels like something that is too weird and too good for this world. There some intense drama in this issue, and very rewarding emotional moments. There’s terrific humor in this issue, as we see very typical family interactions interpreted through the prism of android protagonists. There’s also a broadening of the mysteries of where the story is going, and who in fact is telling the story. The entire creative team has created a weird, thoughtful, wonderful atmosphere in the story, and I look forward to reading more.


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. 

THE VISION #3 – Kulbir Mann

Tom King has been my bet for breakout star recently and The Vision has been astounding. His wife Virginia seems to struggle with her humanity much more than Vision does. The scene with her trying to flirt with him is so painfully uncomfortable but also very emotional. So much credit goes to Walta and King in producing a refreshing free thinking android story.


A-FORCE #1 – Pete Buser

G. Willow Wilson is taking on another Marvel book and I can’t be more excited.  Jorge Molina’s art has grown by leaps and bounds over this past year.

If I could just figure out who these people remind me of…


About Me: Pete Buser is an enigma wrapped in a variant cover. Follow his mystery @petebuser

SWAMP THING #1 – Scott Keys

First Honor Roll of 2016, and I chose the 1st issue of Swamp Thing with the great Kelley Jones doing his horror thing, and Swamp Thing co-creator Len Wein penning the action. Great throw-back vibe to the story & can’t wait for issue 2!



About Me: Scott Keys is a father, Butler University grad, pharmacist, and full-time comic nerd. You can follow his adventures around the spinner-rack and his Incoherent Comic Book Ramblings on: Twitter: @Like_car_Keys Instagram: Like_car_Keys Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) Google+: Scott Keys Pinterest: LikecarKeys
