Tyler’s Recommendations…
Deadly Class #32
“My favorite 80’s punk rock, assassin high school comic is back! I’ve been missing the insane tale of the kids of King’s Dominon,
so I’m super excited for the next chapter to begin. Wes Craig art has been sorely missed in my pull.”

on this book.”

Doom Patrol/JLA Special #1
“The finale to the Milk Wars is here! I have enjoyed this mini event comic very much, each issue offered something fun to chew on, and the alternate versions of some of our favorite DC characters were awesome. Check this one out if you enjoy some old fashioned weird!”

This Week’s Finest: Captain America #698

From Captain America #698 by Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

by Mark Waid, Chris Samnee & Matthew Wilson

From November 2010 to March 2011 Mark Waid wrote a five issue mini series called Captain America: Man Out Of Time. It retold the story that first appeared in the pages of the original Avengers series; about how a frozen American war hero was thawed out 60 years later to fight for the Avengers. Some thought it didn’t need to be retold, however, Waid brought something new to it. The writer focused on the emotional struggles of Steve Rogers, a man realizing he can never go back to the life he once knew. Here we are in 2018 and Waid is once again telling the story of Captain America, a man out of time. Although, this time, it is Avengers Cap who has been frozen and inevitably thawed in a not so distant dumpster fire America. Waid impressed me then with Man Out Of Time and he impressed me now with Captain America #698 Out Of Time Part 1, enough to be the finest comic of the week.

Deathbed #1

Tyler’s Recommendation…
Shade The Changing Girl/Wonder Woman Special #1
“So this Milk Wars crossover is one of my new favorite things. If you were on the fence, please climb down, you need to read this series. Fair warning, it will also probably make you start reading the entire Young Animal line, but that is a good thing.”

Swamp Thing Winter Special #1
“Tom King and the late Len Wein team up for a special edition Swamp Thing story. As a big Swampy fan, I’m very excited for this special. Tom King writing anything has my attention at this point, and I can’t wait to see what he and Wein have come up with.”

Hungry Ghost #1
“Japanese folklore with a culinary twist, Anthony Bordain and Novelist Joel Rose bring the first issue of an anthology of sorts. Each issue is filled with
different tales of ghosts, demons, and other evils, this time around the art comes courtesy of Alberto Ponticelli and Vanessa Del Rey. Part of the new Berger Books line from Dark Horse, with the esteemed Karen Berger running the show, count me in!”

This Week’s Finest: Southern Bastards #19

by Jason Aaron & Jason Latour

Spoilers ahead. You have been warned…

A few issues ago (#16) it felt as though Coach Boss was nearing his inevitable rock bottom when he brutally beat a kid in order to win a football game. When the extremely injured boy took the field anyways and stood in the way of Coach Boss’s victory, I could feel that bottom closing in. Then, after Locust Fork’s Burt Reynolds (McKlusky) got the best of Coach Boss, he conceded. It appeared Coach had finally hit that bottom. Honestly, I felt a little edge and grit leave the book when Coach shook McKlusky’s hand in defeat. But, it really is a simple thing, the war he started with Locust Fork no longer benefits the team, in fact it actually hurts them as some of the team member were part of the physical encounters. Instead of leaving the Rebels with a number of injured players, Coach had only one option, to wave the white flag. However, just when I think I have this guy figured out he belts a monkey with a fucking home made bat like he is hitting homers over the Monster at Fenway. If you were missing the downright insanity of Coach Boss like I was, you are in luck, the bastard is back.
