I’ve always been of the opinion that there’s a great comic book out there for everyone. I love making recommendations to folks – especially new readers – and helping them grow a love for one of America’s unique forms of literature.

So, let me tell you what to read this week.


Emily and the Strangers Breaking Record #1

Emily and the Strangers Breaking the Record 1

Writer: Reger, Rob

Artist: Farris, Cat

Cover Artist: Parker, Buzz

After the success of the Emily and the Strangers miniseries, Rob Reger continues Emily’s journey to being a famous musician. However, Emily has to handle record managers. This is a fun all-ages title with a goth/punk vibe.

Trees #2

Trees 2

Writer: Ellis, Warren

Artist: Howard, Jason

Cover Artist: Howard, Jason

The story continues in Ellis’ new alien mystery. Second issue in a new series – should be easy to find the first issue and catch up!


Ms Marvel #5

Ms Marvel 5

Writer: Wilson, C. Willow

Artist: Alphona, Adrian

Cover Artist: Alphona, Adrian

I can’t recommend this series enough. It is so fun and adorable! Kamala has no idea how to be a hero, but she wants to do her best. She’s definitely making a name for herself in the Marvel universe.


That’s it for this week’s pull list! If you have any recommendations for comic fans (and non-fans) out there, share them in the comments section!
