Tyler’s Recommendation… Sherlock Frankenstein and the Legion of Evil #1
“Fresh off an Eisner win for best new series, the world of Black Hammer is expanding this month. A 4-issue mini with artist David Rubin, exploring the origins of a supervillain. I highly recommend checking this out!”
After last weeks big 50th episode spectacular, the guys go to the usual format to talk comics like The Wild Storm, Kill or Be Killed, Batwoman Rebirth, Mother Panic & Sex Criminals in addition to the DeMarcus Cousins and Serge Ibaka trades, OJ Made In America, Moonlight & more.
Two issues in,Animosity is proving to be one of the most original debuts of the year. The AfterShock series takes place on an Earth where animals suddenly gain sentience. Naturally, confusion leads to violence which only ratchets up the narrative’s tension. However, there is more to the title than a tale of animal resentment run amok. Writer Marguerite Bennett, along with artist Rafael De Latorre, are crafting a nuanced portrait of humans’ relationship with the rest of the animal kingdom. At New York Comic Con, I had the chance to speak with Bennett about the series.
