Each week there are comics that come out that I just can’t wait to read, and some that I really don’t care about. You can find my reasons for being excited about these comics here. Now that I’ve read the comics I was excited about, were they as good as I hoped? Were there others that surprised me?
Read on, and find out!
A&A: The Adventures Of Archer And Armstrong #5 (Valiant)
An underappreciated gem, this series is one of the most effortlessly entertaining comics on the racks today. Read the review of issue five here and find out why.
Batman #3 (DC)
Better than the last issue, honestly. I’m starting to appreciate the more human take on Batman that Tom King is giving us, and his exploration of the effect that the legend of the Dark Knight has on Gotham (the city, not the character) is getting interesting. A solid read that’s an improvement over last issue.
Faith #1 (Valiant)
You’re going to hear a lot about this series in the coming weeks and months, and after the critically and commercially successful miniseries from the same creative team earlier in the year, the buzz will be massive. This issue is reviewed in full here.
Rai #15 (Valiant)
Another tie-in comic to 4001 A.D. didn’t disappoint.
Superman #3 (DC)* Something strange is happening to me; I’m becoming a Superman fan after decades of ignoring his comic series. Focusing more on Superman’s family, this series is one of the better ones to emerge from Rebirth so far.
The Hellblazer Rebirth #1 (DC)* Awesome fun. A great one shot comic that’s highly enjoyable. Serving as a great introduction to the character, Hellblazer Rebirth is a blast to read.
