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.
Writer: Seeley, Tim
Artist: Janin, Mikel
Cover Artist: Robinson, Andrew
To be honest, I haven’t been a fan of Forever Evil or whatever crossovers DC has been doing lately. However, I am intrigued by the thought of Dick Grayson abandoning his superhero persona in favor of becoming a super-spy. Also, DC’s been pushing this new series with one of the strangest phrases: You might think you know Nightwing – but you don’t know Dick.
Rocket Girl Vol.1: Times Squared TP
Writer: Montclare, Brandon
Artist: Reeder, Amy
Cover Artist: Reeder, Amy
Reeder and Montclare’s Rocket Girl features a teenage police officer from the future stuck in the 1980s. What does she discover about her own future from the events she witnesses?
My Love Story Vol. 1
Writer: Kawahara, Kazune
Artist: Kawahara, Kazune
Cover Artist: Kawahara, Kazune
New Shojo series from VIZ! Takeo Goda is a big guy that lives in the shadows of his more handsome, popular best friend. He’s pretty content not being the object of desire for women until he meets Yamoto, a young woman he saves from harassers. Really cool seeing Shojo romance from a man’s perspective.
Nisekoi False Love Vol. 4
Writer: Komi, Naoshi
Artist: Komi, Naoshi
Cover Artist: Komi, Naoshi
As Ichijo searches for the girl with the key to his locket, he runs into more trouble. Now that he knows two of his classmates, Onodera (his crush) and Chitoge (his fake girlfriend), have keys, he’s got to figure out which girl is the one he promised to marry ten years ago. To make matters more confusing, another girl shows up with a key…
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!
