This Week’s Comics – March 18th, 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.

Recommendations:

Superman #39: This will be the last issue of the new Superman run written by Geoff Johns. After that, both writing and drawing duties will be held by John Romita Jr. Ulysses is taken care of, for now, but with the way the last issue ended – with a bombshell – I’m not so sure how things will play out in this last Johns-written issue.

Chrononauts #1: When it comes to new age sci-fi comic books, there are three kings: Rick Remender, Jeff Lemire, and Mark Millar. Chrononauts joins Millarverse as the story of two great friends who unlock the secret of time travel. If the science doesn’t get you, then either the stellar art (Punk Rock Jesus‘ Sean Murphy) or the sure-to-make-you-laugh dialogue from Mark Millar will.

Invisible Republic #1: Seriously, any book that’s described by its publisher as “Breaking Bad meets Blade Runner” is going to have an automatic endorsement from me. This sci-fi series about a reporter who uncovers the journal of a legendary freedom fighter, and the barbaric truth about the leader. If you’re like me, and you didn’t hear anything past “Breaking Bad,” then you have passed the test.

Strange Sports Stories #1: In all likelihood, this is going to a really weird series. There’s a real retro feel here, one that harkens back to a time when comic books were not synonymous with superheroes. The variety creative cost that is contributing to this Vertigo book is impressive, and with various short stories to choose from, you’re sure to find one book that will interest you.

This Week’s Comics – March 11th, 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.

Recommendations:

Postal #2: If creepy is your schtick, then Postal is your book. Mark has Aspergers. He lives in Eden, Wyoming with his mother, who is also the mayor. It’s a seedy town, full of second-chancers. However, when someone is murdered in the garden of Eden (kidding, it was actually in the middle of the street), the town is less than thrilled. I, however, wet myself in anxiety.

Howard the Duck #1: Judging by the cult explosion at the after-credit scene in Guardians of the Galaxy, I think people were more excited at his cameo than the movie. Written by Chip Zdarsky, this books is gonna be funnier than any book about an anthropomorphic duck you thought would be. I’m glad Howard can finally poke his head in pride after hiding in shame for the last nearly 30 years.

Batman: Arkham Knight #1: With the final game looming overhead, this prequel series should fill in the gaps of what Gotham is like with a dead Joker. Arkham City has been closed down and Batman is physically wearing down. Usually video-game prequel books are crap quality, but the past Arkham books present a unique perspective.
