THE HONOR ROLL: May 14, 2014 Releases

This week looked like it would be small at first. Then all the comics came out. And we read them. And we have great spoiler filled pics to show you. Hope you enjoy, let’s get to it!

Avengers #29 – Ken Godberson III

The punch over forty issues in the making.


About Me: When he is not working at a library or on his Master’s Degree, Ken Godberson III is usually writing comics, prose and screenplays. He tends to be an expert on absolutely nothing except on why Impulse is the greatest superhero ever. He can be found on Twitter @kengodbersoniii or on Tumblr at

All New Ghost Rider #3 – Tom Barnett

Tradd Moore is probably best known for his more bombastic scenes, but this moment between Robby and the Spirit of Vengeance is superb.


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

Afterlife with Archie #5 – Scott Keys

My only issue with Afterlife with Archie is that I want MORE! Issue 5 wrapped up the first arc, and we see Archie become a leader and a man!  Great writing, beautiful art, and a fantastic premise!  Get this book, people!


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 / Tumblr: / Facebook: Scott Keys (Likecarkeys) / Google+: Scott Keys

The Auteur #3 – Tommy Zimmer

I feel like I need a character witness before I tell you guys what my favorite comic book of the week was.  It’s so full of sex, violence, drugs, and Hollywood Producers that it fills me with shame each time I read it.  It’s depraved, psychedelic, beautifully illustrated and hilarious.  The Auteur no. 3, is my pick of the week, and it’s been 30 years since my last confession.  (Blame Rick Spears, James Callahan & Luigi Anderson).


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

Next Testament #9 – Conrad Roth

Alas, Poor Wick… with only three installments left for this fantastic series, Our “Creator” has lost His patience with us. There will be a Reckoning. Mr. Barker, Miller, Jang and Popov are making The End Times a helluva ride!


About Me: When I’m not buying, bagging, boarding, or reading comics, I’m likely to be found boisterously bitching about them on Twitter @conmandtherad

Lumberjanes #2 – Pete Buser

Some comics are just flat-out fun.  And Lumberjanes, by Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis and Brooke Allen, is definitely one of them. BFFs having action packed and hilarious adventures in the woods is something comic reading folks should not pass up.  Who knew that a scrunchie could be used to defeat a three-eyed river monster?  Certainly not I.


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

All New Ghost Rider #3 – Hansel Moreno

This bottom panel in Ghost Rider #3 by Felipe Smith, Tradd Moore and Val Staples shows off Robbie’s dedication to his brother as well as his struggle in life. Aside from that there is a fun Spider-Fish that some one has pawned for a quick buck.


About Me: Hansel reads dozens of comics when not providing technical support. He is sorry to fall into the stereotype and makes up for it by jogging constantly and sewing when he has the chance. Read short reviews on his local comic book store web site, and follow him on twitter @hanselthelost

Avengers #29 – Kulbir Mann

If you can manage the wait and complexity, Hickman’s writing really delivers in the long term. This Avengers issue focuses on events that occurred at the very beginning of New Avengers when Marvel Now was merely a newborn. This issue slowly shows Cap’s emotions as the pieces of memory fall into place. He failed to use the Infinity gauntlet to stop an incursion and was exiled from the Illuminati because of his failings. Leinel Yu draws angst ridden disturbed faces as best as anyone but in this panel, he is fantastic at portraying the anger of Rogers as he delivers the big reveal. A wonderful issue.


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

Doomed #1 – Aaron Meyers

This hooked me big time. Im a sucker for Doomsday.


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


Thanks as always for reading and sharing the most honored comics of the week with us. Same time next week, stay tuned!
