Some weeks we have good comics, some weeks we have great comics, this week I can tell you this, we have great spoiler filled picks from our contributors, so let’s get to it!
ALL-NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #10 – Doug Zawisza
This concludes the team’s mission in this all-new series written by Gerry Duggan and drawn by Aaron Kuder. There’s wackiness aplenty, and even Drax has had enough, finally breaking his vow of non-violence. It’s a fun read, as Guardians of the Galaxy should be, and the stellar visuals only enhance the levels of enjoyment.
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
DESCENDER #24 – Tom Barnett
I love when a book is so well done that you don’t realize it’s already on issue 24! This was a rather unique issue of Descender, as it was totally about Driller’s journey. My favorite image for the week is easily this full panel of a pissed off Driller. The metal of the robot looks so real, cold and heavy. The irony in his words rings as loud as he said them. Maybe he doesn’t have a soul, but he’s got more heart then most elected officials.
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 #13 – James Kaplan
Each issue of this comic is a delight. Each issue (by writer Jeff Lemire) has emotion, weird drama, and fantastic storytelling. The heroes are stranded in a strange world that looks like Earth but doesn’t make any sense, so we see their struggles on that world, and we also see some of the events that led up to their exile on that world in the first place. These are all really compelling characters, and main series artist Dean Ormston is back on the book and he continues to do wonderful, fantastical and emotional work. This is 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 panelpatter.com and is on Twitter @sinisterjhk.
JEAN GREY #7 – Kat!
Jean Grey #7 is less about the “special guest” of the issue, and instead focuses on young Jean’s dynamic with her older self. The opener is great! Jean is walking through New York City yelling at herself, while she pretends to talk to older Jean through her headphones so people don’t think she’s crazy. Although I’m shocked any New Yorker gave her a second glance.
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.
