THE HONOR ROLL: May 2, 2018 Releases

Keep rolling with it. The tide of comics comes in every week and we can’t love it more. We have great spoiler filled picks for you to check out by our great contributors, so let’s get to it!

AVENGERS #1 – Doug Zawisza

Avengers were the big news last week, crushing the box office and spoiling the internet. This week, well, it’s more Avengers. Not as many Avengers as in the recently completed “No Surrender” storyline, but more than a few characters nonetheless. Written by Jason Aaron and drawn by Ed McGuinness, Avengers #1 is inked by Mark Morales, colored by David Curiel, and lettered by Cory Petit. This comic is the first of Marvel’s latest soft relaunch, and it brings three of the most well-recognized characters back together as Avengers. Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor fit the widescreen, over-the-top artwork of McGuinness, but the roster doesn’t stop there. Avengers #1 is a nice spot to plug in some new fans who just might be looking for that doorway into comics.

I love Dan Mora’s character design for future Kimberly, very punk rock, and that by the end we don’t know the Ranger Slayer’s true motives.

EAST OF WEST #37 – Tom Barnett

Every issue of East of West is such a shining example of great comic book storytelling.
I love this panel, because you know that a reckoning is coming!


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

EAST OF WEST #37James Kaplan

One of the best things about East of West is that Jonathan Hickman and his fellow creators have created such a rich, broad cast of characters that each issue they can focus on a different character and it’s always an interesting story. This issue is no exception, as we see a group of characters come together to plot revenge. The writing is great, and the art as always from Nick Dragotta and Frank Martin is astoundingly good.

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. 

DC NATION #0 – Scott Keys

DC Nation #0 is a great sample of the awesome things DC has in store! I thought all 3 stories were great, but the Joker story really stood out, especially Clay Mann’s gorgeous art. His Joker is simply superb!

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

DEATH OR GLORY #1 Aaron Meyers

Great premise. Great art. Gripping first issue.


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
