  • Colors by Lee Loughridge
  • Letters from Tom Napolitano

While James Tynion IV introduced a lot of new characters over the course of his Batman run, there’s one that fans are clamoring for more and no, we’re not talking about Punchline. It turns out Miracle Molly has been a fan favorite since her debut and now we finally come to the vibrant story and big heart of the transhumanist vigilante. The one-shot offers readers the origin story of Miracle Molly, a story presented as a secret so deep even she can’t remember it. Although there are a lot of moving parts in the Tynion Batman running – and not all of them – getting the chance to dig a little deeper into one of the truly charming aspects that come with it is something no Batman fan can miss. – Nicole Tambour

Any opportunity DC takes to reprint the previous one Birds of prey tracks – especially Gail Simone’s historic version of the characters – is one that I’m absolutely going to celebrate. This bundle of trouble leads Black Canary, Oracle, Lady Blackhawk and more to an epic amount of trials and tribulations, which includes a dangerous techno-virus. The stories that follow see the birds intersect with Wildcat, the Bat Family, and more, all in an incredibly dynamic and action-packed story. This collection is worth it for everything Birds of prey – and DC – fan. – Jenna Anderson

Dead dog bite

Dead dog bite was one of my absolute favorite reading experiences from the last year. Tyler Boss creates an idiosyncratic vision of an unimaginable small urban community shaped as much by form as by history. Every word balloon and backdrop is considered because every element of the artwork radiates Boss’s unique aesthetic. The actual plot is never hard to follow with characters and actions told in vivid colors with near-perfect clarity, but the visual patterns implanted by Boss create a sense of unease even before the most conspiratorial elements do. arrive. Dead dog bite is a comic book that’s as much about the experience as it is about the destination – and I see months later that the images and concepts of its serialized story remain resonant. If you grab this gorgeous hardcover you can open the front cover knowing you’ll never forget what’s inside as you experience Boss’s vision of an unusually strange setting. – Chase Magnett

Frontier n ° 1

I love superheroes. Something in the adventures of the superb costumed and the vigilantes speaks to me. But it is sometimes frustrating that two large shared universes dominate the genre. That’s why it’s always encouraging to see independent designers give it a go. Patrick Kindlon and Marco Ferrari do it with Frontier, a new superhero story in the mold of classic Green Arrow comics. Billed as a mature superhero story that doesn’t rely on cynicism, this series sounds like music to my ears. – Jamie Lovett

Killadelphia is a unique comic in that it is both a truly fantastic horror comic, but also a sharp take on American history and culture and how steeped in racism, inequality and of white supremacy. The intersection of these things drives one crazy, but the thought-provoking story this week takes it all to feverish new ground as Abigail Addams makes his big game against the Sangsters while Thomas Jefferson makes his rise as the new one. vampire king – a king who wants to raise literal hell to create a whole new twisted approach to America. Wild, twisted and sobering, this book is very current and a must read. – Nicole Tambour

Moon Knight’s goal has been to protect his citizens through the Midnight Mission, and that protection extends to everyone. It doesn’t suit an enemy that has been looming from the start very well, and Spector’s latest decision to extend this aid to vampires is just too much for Hunter’s Moon to take, and Khonshu’s two fists are finally ready to go. collide. epic fashion. It’s going to be wild, so don’t miss it! – Matthieu Aguilar

Once and future is a series that refuses to rest on its laurels, no matter how many it has. It’s a story that adapts the Arthurian lore in a brilliant reimagining capable of both capturing classic themes and adapting them to the 21st century. Every page is a feat with some of the best comic book designs and colors today. Yet instead of rubbing shoulders, the status quo is constantly in motion as each new arc reinvents this terrifying take on the British Isles. So, the arrival of the long-awaited battle between two competing visions of King Arthur promises explosive conflict and results that I dare not even guess; I’m just ready to find out what can come next. As someone who previously waited for the collected editions of this series, the draw for each new issue just got too strong. So if you find yourself in a similar position, be advised: Accept the hype; Once and future is one of the best ongoing series in comics in 2021. Don’t miss it. – Chase Magnet

Suicide Squad: King Shark # 1

Last month The suicide squad helped make Nanaue a household name, which makes the launch of her own solo miniseries a delightful surprise. The story – which was first released digitally – sees fan-favorite anti-hero The Defacer forced to team up with King Shark on an adventure that’s no shortage of weird and hilarious moments. Tim Seeley writes a screenplay for King Shark that’s just as deadly and cuddly as the main character, and Scott Kolins’ art easily handles the mundane and larger than life. I was absolutely delighted with the first issue of this – and chances are it would have the same effect on a lot of people. – Jenna Anderson

Way of X has been one of my favorite books of the year. On the one hand, it highlights some of the ethical and philosophical contradictions of the new mutant society of Krakoa. On the other hand, it follows Nightcrawler’s journey to merge his traditional religious background with this more progressive future. Now, Kurt and a band of allies take care of the serpent in the garden of Krakoa, the mighty Onslaught, born from the emergence of the psyche of Professor X and Magneto and planted in the minds of those undergoing the resurrection. from Krakoa. It’s the grand finale that readers have been waiting for and, based on comments from the creators, it’s just a turning point in a much bigger story. – Jamie Lovett
