Tyler’s Recommendation…
Black Monday Murders #6
“Johnathan Hickman and Tomm Coker’s stellar book is back this week. This round we discover the occult reasons behind the market crash. Weaving mystery and occult horror with the behind the scenes power structure of financial empires, a new edition to this tale is always a treat.”

This Week’s Finest: Secret Empire #4

By Nick Spencer, Leinil Francis Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, Rod Reis, Joshua Cassara, Rachelle Rosenberg and Sunny Gho

What do I want out of a comic book event? If it’s a crossover event then those issues need to be solid; they need to serve the event but also stay true to the original title.  I want to care about the characters; I don’t need to know who the characters are but there are obviously going to be some major stakes involved and I want to care what happens to these people. I want there to be a clear goal in mind; why is the event happening and how do we get through it? I was a big fan of Secret Wars, the tie-ins were tight and the main title was brilliant. I skipped Civil War II because it felt like been there done that. This year’s Marvel summer event is Secret Empire. Although we have a Cap vs Iron Man plot which, believe me, should definitely feel like been there done that, shows why this event is so much more. Cap is bad. He has the likes of a possessed Scarlet Witch, a Mjonirless Thor and a compliant Punisher fighting alongside him.  Honestly, it’s a little confusing. In a time when there are so many amazing comics, reading them can become somewhat reflexive. I know when I pick up a Marvel book that Cap is good and Ultron is bad. But, Secret Empire takes advantage of that reflexive reading and turns it on you; it makes you think. Secret Empire is out to tell a story that on the surface looks familiar but in the pages is nothing you have ever seen.

Boundless OGN
“Jillian Tamaki is amazing. From her collaborations with cousin Mariko (Skim, This One Summer), to her hilarious and insightful solo debut (Super Mutant Magic Academy), I have loved everything she’s done. So, it is my duty to make sure you all know about her newest creation arriving this week. Everyone do themselves a favor and pick this up, I promise it will be fantastic”

Saucer State #1
“Paul Cornell and Ryan Kelly finally bring back the criminally under appreciated Saucer Country. I really enjoyed the first series, so it is with great excitement that I recommend everyone pick this up.”

Josh’s Recommendation…
Luke Cage #1
“If there’s anyone I trust to be writing a Luke Cage solo series, its David Walker. There’s no better time for this series, not the least of which the awareness the Netflix show garnered for the character. I have high hopes for this title, and with Walker’s previous work on Shaft and the past ‘Heroes for Hire’ run, it’s sure to impress.”

Josh’s Recommendation…
The Fix #9
“With so many books coming out this week, its easy to go to a Batman or a wacky, intercompany crossover. But for my money, ‘The Fix’ is always a must buy. Spencer, Liber and Hill have continually made this a depraved comedy without any trappings that pervade other comics (capes/tights, superpowers, mysticism). It feels fresh and unique in a crowded landscape, just as a good Image comic should.”

Josh’s Recommendations…
Iron Fist #3
“Brisson and Perkins have given us two solid issues of Danny Rand searching for a way to regain his Iron Fist chi. Briskly paced, with stunning art from Perkins, its Kung Fu action that the character deserves and an accessible read for fans.”
