This Week’s Comics – August 19th, 2015

This Week’s Comics is the pull list of Comic Books recommended by Hush Comics, with notes and suggestions by co-owner, Sherif Elkhatib.


Justice League #43: So, Batman is a New God now. Shouldn’t that be reason enough to tune into The Darkseid Wars? At first I thought this story was gonna be too far out in left field for me to care about, but Geoff Johns has done an excellent job at keeping the series grounded.

House of M #1: No More Mutants… But reboots about having no more mutants? That’s perfectly fine. One of my favorite Marvel stories of al time comes back, this time with House Magnus ruling all. It could be horrible (like Marvel Zombies) or it could be refreshingly great (like E for X-Tinction), or it could be somewhere in the middle (like Civil War).

Squirrel Girl Volume 1: Squirrel Power: I usually don’t recommend stuff from the trade section, but I feel like too many people missed out on what is a wonderful comic book. Doreen Green is just a normal kid trying to balance being a closeted squirrel with her studies at school. It’s witty, adorable, and full of guest appearances.
