LOOK NO FURTHER.
HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.Tyler’s Recommendation … Black Monday Murders #4
“The end of the first arc from Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker’s tale of finance, corruption, occult practices, and dark magic. I’m a huge Hickman fan, and this series has been a wicked delight. Coker’s gritty and gorgeous art combines so well with Hickman’s elaborate narrative web of conspiracy, murder, greed, and an evil battle for control of the world.”
Dean’s Recommendations… Detective Comics #945
“It is clear that James Tynion is on top of his game here. He balances the personalities of this large team brilliantly, showing us glimpses of interesting characteristics we never thought of before. Oh, and Eddie Barrows is a boss on this book.” Batgirl #5
“I’m pretty sure I have recommended every issue of Batgirl so far. So, if you aren’t reading it yet then I guess I have nothing more to say…read it…” Dept. H #8 “Don’t let this one pass you by. It is everything you want in a Matt Kindt comic. So pick it up and get ready for sci-fi, mystery and suspense.” Josh’s Recommendation… Rick and Morty HC Vol.1 “RICK AND MORTY GET DELUXE RELEASE SON! It’s like a $100 value but half off! You gotta pick this up and put it on your bookshelf so people know you dig the coolest show not on the airwaves right now! RICK AND MORTY FOREVER!!!” Patrick’s Recommendation… “Including one of the all time great comic runs and then some, Captain Marvel By Jim Starlin collects the creators iconic time on the main Captain Marvel series that would define not only the title character himself, but also Thanos & infinity as a concept in the Marvel Universe. In addition, the collection also features Starlin’s Death of Captain Marvel, notable for being the most realistic portrayal of cancer in a superhero comic and while that’s not a reading experience I’d call “enjoyable” per-say, there’s something to be said for how deeply earnest it is in Starlin trying to reconcile the metaphor he’d created of his own belief system within the Captain Marvel mythos with the reality of terminal illness. It’s a collection where the first part can be read and enjoyed by almost anyone while the second half is there if you need it. Moreover, the contrast in the collection between the two parts is an interesting example of how the external forces associated with age and experience shapes our own personal belief system; even the parts of said belief system that are seemingly foundational. Come for the trippy cosmic space opera and maybe come back again when trippy cosmic space opera isn’t enough”
As I’m sure you all have noticed, the pull list page is no longer present. We here at Nothing But Comics have decided to combine this weekly with the discussion of which comics we are all buying for the week. Included below is the link of our personal favorite product guide. Don’t worry, this is not an advertisement; the website is not paying us anything to push it (not that we’d object!). Comic List just happens to be totally awesome. So check out that massive list and then come on back here to let us know what you are buying.
