Recommended Comics

Comics and pulp go together like peanut butter and jelly! So here’s a list of my favorite comics series out there right now (in no particular order):

Bloodshot: I’ve only read one issue so far but I’m very intrigued. I really liked the original version from the Nineties but this a real reboot, with some major differences. The art is nice, the story has some great twists and I’m really interested in seeing where this thing goes.

Batman: The recent Court of Owls storyline was brilliant and the upcoming Joker crossover looks very cool. Scott Snyder is, hands-down, the best Batman writer around at present.

The Shadow: It’s a different Shadow than the classic version but I’m enjoying the ride so far.

Green Lantern: The story arc featuring Sinestro was interesting and Geoff Johns keeps doing some incredible world building here.

Rachel Rising: I don’t know what’s going on but it’s creepy as hell. Features the usual awesome writing and art that you’d expect from Terry Moore.

Frankenstein, Agent of SHADE: Very pulpy. Feels like Hellboy in the DCU. The art is sometimes a bit wonky but good stories.

Scarlet Spider: The story of Spider-Man’s clone Kaine as Houston’s new superhero has been surprisingly good. I enjoy it more than the main Spidey book.

X-O Manowar: The story is too decompressed for my tastes but I’m still enjoying it. Solid art.

I read lots more than the above but those are my faves at present — what about you?
