THE HONOR ROLL: October 19, 2016 Releases

Tensions are high here in the US but the comics are always an awesome escape from it all. We have great spoiler filled picks for you this week, so let’s get to it!

DEPT. H #7 – Tom Barnett

Sharlene Kindt’s color work is simply amazing. This full page panel is so gorgeous. I love how the whole panel is awash in the odd green of the glow light sticks. There’s only three panels lit up behind and they strategically give the room a bit more depth.


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

BLACK HAMMER #4 – James Kaplan

This was a terrific issue. If you love superhero stories that are fun and engaging and thoughtful but also have great homages to other superhero stories, I highly recommend Black Hammer. This issue featured the origin story of Abraham Slam interspersed with an incredibly awkward dinner. The art from Dean Ormston and Dave Stewart continues to be stunningly compelling, at times really melancholy and at other times fun and exciting. It’s a great story.


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. 

MOCKINGBIRD #8 – Aaron Meyers

This book was killed too soon. Super fun 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. 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!
