Daredevil #1 is a fake number one. There’s no good, but it’s livable. Marvel advertised the issue as a jumping-on point, and it fails on that front.
Grim #3 is reliably good and consistently surprising...Grim is quickly becoming one of Boom's best series.
With a cursory knowledge of recent X-Men activity, a reader can buy X-Men: Hellfire Gala #1 and see the through lines of the story unfold.
Promethee 13:13 #3 finally comes to something like an explanation. The promise of the first two issues, contact between aliens and humans finally occurs
Cyberpunk 2077: Blackout #2 continues the story of Arturo, the brain dance repairman with an unplayable debt due much too soon.
Mind MGMT: Bootleg #1 reminds me: It’s good to read a Mind MGMT comic again. The series is about a shadowy organization that runs the world through psychic espionage.
In Pearl III #2, a reader can see (or intuit) what writer Brian Bendis (and artist Michael Gaydos) do well: show character.
In The Lonesome Hunters #1 (apparently a miniseries?), Tyler Crook (artist and co-creator of Harrow County) takes full control of a new series
The story about this one shot is the same as the other self-contained stories: The artists are top notch, and the stories are always right for them.
Stray is absolutely a comic in the style of young people at bars hurting each other emotionally and trying to heal
In Grim #2, Jessica Harrow is lost. Stuck between the living, the dead, and the need for information from her friends.
If you liked Young Avengers, then you’re here for page after page of shirtless Billy & Teddy whispering sweet nothings to one another
In Punisher War Journal: Blitz #1 you can see writer Torunn Grønbekk and artist Lan Medina struggle against the constraints.
In plain language, Entropy #1 is a good cosmic comic which doesn’t require knowledge of a gigantic universe to read or enjoy.
Promethee 13:13 #2’s cliffhanger is the what the series has suggested since the outset. The space shuttle might be moving laboriously, but the story's moving at warp speed.
