Weekly Comic Book Picks 6th July ’16


With it being Wednesday tomorrow this means we get a whole new bunch of comic books hitting the shelves, but where should your hard earned pennies go? Should they go to Batman, Han Solo, Tokyo Ghost or Jem and the Hollograms- well here are my picks.

Batman #2


Official Synopsis: “I Am Gotham” Chapter Two: In issue #2, after a brush with disaster, Batman struggles to reconcile the fate he could be leaving behind for his city, and reaches out to the idealistic new hero, Gotham. But an evil is building that may overcome both Batman and his new ally.

Why its a Pick: The introduction of two super-powered individuals who can fly and have super strength while also claiming that Gotham is there city is a huge moment in Batman history- and the fall put moving forward starts here. This issue should jump right into whats going on, and this is a really exciting prospect and you really should be on board right now!

Black Science #22


Official Synopsis: In a hotheaded attempt to rescue his daughter, Grant McKay threatens to unravel a peace treaty between three godlike races, putting the entire Eververse at risk! Big changes, bigger action, and a stunning climax that will shake the world of BLACK SCIENCE to its very foundations!

Why its a Pick: Black Science feels like its been away for ever- and boy have I missed it. And if missing it isn’t reason enough for it to be here, lets be honest and just say that this is one of the best science fiction comics going- seeing McKay try and get his family back through the multi-verses has been exciting and heart breaking at the same time; and with that we’ve also has some amazingly pretty and distopian worlds to view. This should be a good return.

Tokyo Ghost #8


Official Synopsis: The Tokyo Ghost has come for Davey Trauma… but Constable Led Dent stands in the way.

Why its a Pick: Tokyo Ghost has been on fire with great story telling, brilliant world building and some amazing character work since it launched- and with the return of the ‘Tokyo Ghost’ to the main lands the action has picked up and everything is coming together brilliantly for an explosive finish to the second arc.
