“Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston’s superhero-mystery series has been fantastic from issue one. Beautiful art and an intriguing story about the myriad of issues that come with superheroism. Highly recommended reading.”

wildstorm1Wild Storm #1
“Warren Ellis returns to the Wildstorm universe! I’m of the mind that any new Ellis book is worthy of my time, so I’m excited for this. I very much enjoyed his previous run on Stormwatch, and his work as of late has been fantastic, I would advise any curious minds to grab a copy of this on Wednesday

Tyler’s Recommendation…
cursewords1Curse Words #1
“Charles Soule teams up with Ryan Browne for a story of an evil wizard posing as a good guy in modern day NYC. With this creative team that synopsis is only the tip the iceberg, I expect a lot of glorious insanity in this book.”

This Year’s Finest 2015: The Best Single Issues

Comics in their essence are a serialized art form. We might discuss arcs and runs, trading waiting and so on, yet , most comics are still centered on the experience of reading individual chapters parceled out over a (typically) monthly basis. With this in mind, I offer my third annual list of the year’s most memorable single issues.

I start with my choices for the two very best:

Sandman Overture 6 J.H. Williams III
J.H. Williams III

Sandman Overture #6 by Neil Gaiman & J.H. Williams III:  Dream’s cosmic journey across a universe (or two) came to a stunning conclusion in this issue. The issue contained several callbacks to Gaiman’s classic work, yet not none of them felt like self-serving fan service. Instead they enriched even further the fascinating personalities of the Dream Lord and his siblings. At the same time, Gaiman offered  a story where the stakes were huge. Williams more than ably met the challenge of Gaiman’s script handing in page after page of stunning art. His detailed, imaginative work defied any traditional sense of page layouts, spilling the action in all directions. Rarely have words and pictures blended so well to create a truly emotional experience on an epic scale. For more, read Cosmo’s staff review.
