Geekscape Comics: Best Bets for 11/16/16

Wednesday 16th November 2016 by Karson

It’s that wonderful time of the week again, new comic book day! Choosing what to read can be daunting (and expensive!). Don’t worry though, Geekscape has you covered. Each week we give our best bet for a comic book that you’re sure to enjoy. Let’s get into it!

Honorable Mentions

Oh baby! Marvel is bringing it this week! Thanos returns to the Marvel comics spotlight with the Jeff Lemire and Mike Deodato Jr. helmed, Thanos #1. We are being delivered a double-dose of Clone Conspiracy tie-ins with Amazing Spider-Man #21 and Silk #14. While I enjoyed the character in Spider-Verse, this’ll be the first actual Silk book I read! The Doctor Doom as Iron Man story continues in Infamous Iron Man #2. Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos continue their new run on Jessica Jones with issue #2. If you were a fan of their original run, or the Jessica Jones or Luke Cage Netflix series’, this book is a no-brainer.

As far as DC goes, the Superman and Batman books are amongst my favourite of the Rebirth titles right now and we get new issues of each, #11 and #11 (yeah, I put the ‘and’ in there so I could link them up 😂). I know I sound like a broken record but the father-son dynamic going on in Superman is so damn good. As far as Batman goes, we got Bane back, what’s not to love about that?

Image has a couple of titles out this week that you should be reading. First, we have Reborn #2, issue 1 didn’t let us down and here’s hoping Millar and Capullo can continue to wow us with issue 2 of their sci-fi fantasy. Next, comic book masters Brubaker and Phillip’s conclude the first arc of their latest book, Kill Or Be Killed #4.

Best Bet


Ether #1
📝 Matt Kindt
🎨 David Rubin

A science-minded adventurer gets mixed up in the mysteries of a fantasy world in this charming new adventure from an award-winning creative team. Boone Dias is an interdimensional explorer, a scientist from Earth who has stumbled into great responsibility. He’s got an explanation for everything, so of course the Ether’s magical residents turn to him to solve their toughest crimes. But maybe keeping the real and the abstract separate is too big a job for just one man.

If you’ve been reading this for awhile, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Matt and Sharlene Kindt’s Dept. H. This week we get a new Dark Horse Comics book from Kindt, Ether #1. With one science fiction fantasy title on our pull list in Reborn, you’d think there wouldn’t be room for another but with Kindt’s name on it, I can’t imagine it not being awesome. His love for comic books is apparent in everything I’ve read of his so far, he takes advantage of everything the medium as to offer. There’s no reason to think we won’t do it again with Ether.
