THE HONOR ROLL: July 20, 2016 Releases

There’s some sort of convention that happened this week that some people seem to be talking about but that doesn’t matter here! We have awesome spoiler filled picks from this week’s comics so let’s get to it!

BLACK HAMMER #1 – Tom Barnett

I was way too excited about the premiere of Black Hammer and it didn’t disappoint. I just love Lemire’s use of the farm as the setting in contrast to the super powers. I love the nods to old school JLA. Dean Ormston’s artwork is amazing. This excellent work that I’m sure will only get better.


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

ALL-NEW WOLVERINE #10– Kulbir Mann

“So you are like my interdimensional dystopian future grandpa?” That is all that needs to be said, except that this book is so well written!


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

LAZARUS #23 – James Kaplan

Lazarus continues to be one of the very best comics being published. There’s wheels within wheels that are turning, as politics and war continues to be addressed in subtle and complex ways.  Additionally, there’s some serious hand-to-hand combat in this issue, as illustrated by the fantastic Michael Lark. If you’re not on board for this book, go back and start from the beginning. It’s a fantastic read, and one of the most interesting, well-thought out books of the last several years.


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. 

ULTIMATES #9 – Aaron Meyers

Without a doubt my favorite marvel team book.


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.
