limbo
Limbo #1

Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(W) Dan Watters (A/CA) Caspar Wijngaard

Wowowow. I was totally blown away by this first issue. It’s like the ’80s meets Tim Burton (old school, good Tim Burton, not his new nonsense) meets a PI story meets just awesomeness in general. The first issue is a little spastic and all over the place, but that makes sense since the premise centers around a guy with amnesia who only remembers the past nine months. The best part about this issue was how effortlessly it brought the paranormal into the story as if they weren’t, in fact, paranormal, but rather just the regular sort of normal. The art and coloring of Limbo #1 is stunning and I could have read it just for the visuals. The fact that it had an amazing story too was just the icing on the cake. So yeah, read Limbo!!

zodiac
Zodiac Starforce #3

Publisher: DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Kevin Panetta (A) Paulina Ganucheau (CA) Jacob Wyatt

The team has little loose a bunch of monsters on the city and they must do everything they can to save Emma’s life. This magical girl series is so fun and it’s full of well developed characters who are pretty badass. I love the different personalities of each member of the team and I’m waiting anxiously to find out if they can save Emma and save the city.

goddamned
The Goddamned #1

Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(W) Jason Aaron (A/CA) R. M. Guera

The Goddamned #1 was a whole lot of wiggedywack in the best kind of way. I honestly was a little shocked after reading it because there was just so much blood and nude biblical man and disgustingness, but it was done in a way that fascinated rather than revolted. It’s always a little weird when you think about the Bible in terms of what the world actually might have been looking like at the time.

descender
Descender #7

Publisher: IMAGE COMICS
(W) Jeff Lemire (A/CA) Dustin Nguyen

Descender is back!! If you haven’t had a chance to read Descender yet, please change that! The watercolor art is insanely captivating and I have never felt so many emotions for a robot. This is a seriously well written, thoughtful comic that everybody should be reading.

Honorable mentions (aka other stuff I’m excited about too!!):

Harrow County #7
The Wicked and the Divine #15
String Divers #4
Mythic #5
DAVE2 #3
Back to the Future #2
