THE HONOR ROLL: October 11, 2017 Releases

Season change. People change. But Comics, comics keep the light of life alive. We have great spoiler-filled picks for you to check out, so let’s get to it!

MS. MARVEL #23 – James Kaplan

Month in and month out, Ms. Marvel is consistently one of the best comics on the stands. The artists change periodically, but Marvel has managed to consistently put high-quality, fun, engaging artists on this book. Diego Olortegui is off to a nice start in this fun first issue of a new arc.  The other huge reason this book continues to be so good is of course writer G. Willow Wilson. Her stories are consistently smart, emotional, self-aware, funny, and highly entertaining. This continues to be a great book.

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. 

ROYAL CITY #6 – Tom Barnett

Is it possible that Jeff Lemire is becoming an even better storyteller then he was? Royal City is somewhat supernatural but still so grounded in real characters and emotions. This panel hit real close to home for me.


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 brings the return of Laura’s mom, the person who gave X-23 her humanity. We’ve seen many family dynamics in this series, but I have to say this is the one I’m most excited to see play out.


About Me: I’m Kat! A YouTuber on Comic Uno and Comic Frontline, a podcaster on the Legends of Tomorrow Podcast and upcoming Titans Podcast, comic book editor on The Marvel Report, comic book critic on Newsarama, and writer/creator for comic book series Like Father, Like Daughter and They Call Her…The Dancer.

DETECTIVE COMICS #966 – Scott Keys

There were some great titles released this week, but the one that resonated with me was Detective Comics #966. They fact that Conner was referenced gives me hope that we will soon see my favorite Superboy in the near future!


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

DARK NIGHTS: METAL #3 – Doug Zawisza

Dark Nights: Metal #3 from Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo, Jonathan Glapion, FCO Plascencia, and Steve Wands pokes into the shadows a bit more and amplifies the epic crossover vibe that has been at this series core from the start. And the best part? Detective Chimp joins the party.

About Me: I’m Doug. Father of three, husband of one, fan of all things good. I’m a regular contributor here on Comicosity, an adjunct staff member of the Waiting for Doom podcast, and author of the Hawkman Companion from TwoMorrows. Twitter: @DZawisza
