Geekscape Comics: Weekly Reads!

Wednesday 14th September 2016 by Karson

I’m slowly transitioning Weekly Reads into Best Bets. Best Bets is going to be the place for quick recommendations and thoughts on new releases. It will be a curation of what I think is the best of comics for that week. In contrast to that, I will start a new article that will be much more focused pieces that I’ve been itching to write.

To summarize:
– This will be the last “Weekly Reads”
– A lot of the content here will be discussed in “Best Bets” instead
– Look forward to more interesting comic-related content

Now, how about we stop talking about talking about comics, and start talking about comics!

πŸ‘Ž – Skip, read at your own risk
πŸ‘Œ – Okay, not great, not bad, you might find something to like here
πŸ’ͺ – Great, highly recommended

πŸ’ͺ Eclipse #1
Eclipse was this weeks Best Bet, and I’d say we were right to say so 😊.

πŸ’ͺ Kill Or Be Killed #2
This book is must read, a little dark, but very accessible. If The Black Monday Murders is too intimidating, try this book on for size. You won’t be disappointed.

πŸ’ Paper Girls #9
… Still haven’t found the time to read it. πŸ˜…

DC

πŸ‘ŒAquaman #6
After the first two issues, I didn’t think much of this title but since then I’ve been won over with each issue.

πŸ‘ŒBatman #6
This book contains one of the nicest drawings of Gotham that you’ll ever see, an emotional Batman, and a big-time villain reveal. Feels like a transition issue between story arcs but even so, it was very well done.

πŸ‘ŒCyborg – Rebirth #1

This book provides a good introduction to Cyborg if you are unfamilar with the character (like I was). These Rebirth titles should be free as it doesn’t come close to the quality of a lot of the other DC titles at this price point. I’m interested in what happens next but as a prune back my DC titles, this probably won’t make the cut.

πŸ’ͺ Green Arrow #6

The new arc begins.

β€œSINS OF THE MOTHER”! Following the shocking events with the Ninth Circle, Green Arrow’s wayward sister/sidekick Emiko travels to Japan on a quest to destroy the crime lords who control her mother, Shado, the assassin who murdered Oliver Queen.

Hopefully it’s a good as the last. Green Arrow is one of the best ongoing DC titles.

πŸ™… Harley Quinn #3
… Not enough time to keep up with this series.

πŸ‘Ž Justice League #4

Surprisingly meh title. Hasn’t established a flow after four issues. Who knows maybe I’m just dumb but I’d recommend any character from the Justice League’s solo book over this.

πŸ’ͺ Nightwing #4

The fourth issue concluded the “Better Than Batman” story arc in tremendous fashion. This title is really starting to get into a groove.

πŸ‘Œ Supergirl #1

I love the art style of this book. Everything else about it is decent, I think I’m just a little Super’d out.

πŸ‘Œ Superman #6

The moon gets the crap kicked out of it. I’m not enjoying this as much as Action Comics but it has had some pretty sweet moments.

Marvel

Nothing to read here…
