He fumed as he flung the door closed behind him. There had been a lot of arguments in their relationship, but he, at this particular moment, felt he had just been in the worst one yet. Stewing over the words thrown around, the things that may or may not have been meant. That’s when the scream shook him from his rage.
Detective Comics #1000 (DC)
Peter J. Tomasi/Kevin Smith/Brian Michael Bendis/Warren Ellis/Paul Dini/Denny O’Neil/Christopher Priest/Geoff Johns/Tom King/Scott Snyder/James Tynion IV (W) Doug Mahnke/Jim Lee/Alex Maleev/Becky Cloonan/Dustin Nguyen/Steve Epting/Neal Adams/Kelley Jones/Tony Daniel/Joëlle Jones/Greg Capullo/Alvaro Martinez (A)
This is number one because I know I won’t be able to keep my hands on it. Look at this fucking line up. The Dark Knight has an impressive legacy and these guys are showing him some serious love. I cannot wait for this issue.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 (of 5) (Archie)
Kelly Thompson (W) Veronica Fish (A)
This team is great. With the resurgence in popularity that this character received over the last year, I cannot wait to see what they bring to this character.
Dial H for Hero #1 (DC)
Sam Humphries (W) Joe Quinones (A)
Another bonkers team and a new number one for DC. I am incredibly excited for this one because I love obscure, odd-ball characters and this series is like a showcase for them. Doesn’t hurt that Humphries is really killing it right now.
Invaders #3 (Marvel)
Chip Zdarsky (W) Carlos Magno (A)
So, I am a little offended that this series seems to be “make Namor bad again”. That being said, it is an interesting story. It goes against the material that Zdarsky is known for and it’s pretty profound how good he is making it despite that.
Ironheart #4 (Marvel)
Eve L. Ewing (W) Luciano Vecchio (A)
I love this series. I don’t think that Riri got the character building that she deserved in the previous Iron Man series, but in this one, these guys are really making her a character I love. Ewing is incredibly talented and I’m excited for her comic career.
Black Panther #10 (Marvel)
Ta-Nehisi Coates (W) Kev Walker (A)
This book reads like an entirely different series. I mean that as a compliment. You know how I like creator owned series, this has that but with some Superhero mentality injected.
Justice League Odyssey #7 (DC)
Dan Abnett (W) Carmine Di Giandomenico (A)
I feel like this series got significantly better when Abnett joined the comic. I think this is more his bag anyway. This is a great comic. Read it.
Shazam! #4 (DC)
Geoff Johns (W) Dale Eaglesham (A)
While I like this book, I have to admit that it’s my first Shazam book, so I’m learning on the fly. Don’t hurt me.
Wonder Woman #67 (DC)
G. Willow Wilson (W) Cary Nord (A)
I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again. Greece isn’t real. You can’t prove otherwise.
The Books of Magic #6 (Vertigo)
Kat Howard (W) Tom Fowler (A)
More exploration of the Dreaming please. I think that this aspect of the Sandman universe is the most enthralling, and that’s saying a lot because it’s all incredibly interesting.
Martian Manhunter #4 (of 12) (DC)
Steve Orlando (W) Riley Rossmo (A)
I don’t think I was expecting this book. I am really happy about that.
The Realm #12 (Image)
Seth Peck (W) Jeremy Haun (A)
I…I don’t know what the fuck happened at the end of the last issue, but I’m into it. Give me more weird blood zombie slave things.
Heroes in Crisis #7 (of 9) (DC)
Tom King (W) Clay Mann (A)
Oh, fuck. Superman looks piiiiiiiiissed.
Daredevil #3 (Marvel)
Chip Zdarsky (W) Marco Checchetto (A)
ZDARSKY IS VILLIFYING MY FAVORITE HEROES. STOP IT. I NEED THEM. I AM AN ADULT WHO HAS DEPENDENCY ISSUES.
The Silencer #15 (DC)
Dan Abnett (W) Sandu Florea (A)
This series ends with issue eighteen. I don’t know if I told you that, but it’s true and I am sad about it.
The Amazing Spider-Man #18 (Marvel)
Nick Spencer (W) Humberto Ramos (A)
Oh, oh no. This is very different from what I thought was going to happen. I love that. I love when I’m fucking wrong.
The Terrifics #14 (DC)
Jeff Lemire (W) Joe Bennett (A)
This is Lemire’s last issue on this book and I am sad that he’s leaving, but that means he can go do other things, and other talented people can take over. You know what, I take it back, I’m not sad. I’m hopeful.
Bone Parish #8 (of 12) (BOOM!)
Cullen Bunn (W) Jonas Scharf (A)
This is a crazy comic that I would be insanely surprised if this doesn’t get turned into a movie or something. I hear they like doing that stuff.
Outcast #40 (Image)
Robert Kirkman (W) Paul Azaceta (A)
How did I not know this comic is ending after this arc? It’s a long arc, so we have until the forty-eighth issue, but damn. I like these shorter series from Kirkman though. Shorter, being like forty issues or whatever. Short for Kirkman.
Fantastic Four #8 (Marvel)
Dan Slott (W) Aaron Kuder (A)
Doom is bad again. Good.
Isola #7 (Image)
Brenden Fletcher (W) Karl Kerschl (A)
This is such a wonderful book. It really captures some innocent part of the human complex that is rare and beautiful. It reminds me of being a kid again.
Skyward #11 (Image)
Joe Henderson (W) Antonio Fabela (A)
New arc. New villains that used to be old allies. This series is really coming into its own and it’s been amazing so far. I’m excited to see the heights they can take us.
Black Hammer: Age of Doom #9 (Dark Horse)
Jeff Lemire (W) Dean Ormston (A)
This book was always bold and interesting. Utilizing Lemire’s distinct voice and Ormston’s dark edge to mold something different. It has been two years since the first series debuted, since then, this series has morphed into something even more incredible.
Ice Cream Man #11 (Image)
W. Maxwell Prince (W) Martin Morazzo (A)
Ice Cream Man fills a void in my heart. There was something missing from my life. It is now filled with a really fucking weird horror anthology.
Black Science #39 (Image)
Rick Remender (W) Matteo Scalera (A)
This is the last arc of this book. I am so fucking excited to usher in the end of this book. It’s like watching your best friend get married.
Feet almost collide as they shuffle to the stairs. Nearly, ripping the door off the hinges, he flings himself over the edge of the first stair. Falling more than walking, he’s down the stairs in a second. His foot slips on the wood flooring and he crashes into the front door, quickly rebounding, and finding his balance as he stumbles into the kitchen. His girlfriend standing in a puddle of water, his heart started beating again. His labored breaths becoming laughter.
