Well, comic shops around the country are reopening, so it’s time to put the “quarantine edition” of What Looks Good to bed. But just because there are new comics again doesn’t mean we’re done recommending long runs for those smartly staying indoors. With that, it’s on with the show.
DCeased: Hope at World’s End #2
(w) Tom Taylor (a) Renato Guedes (c) Rex Lokus
As tempting as it is to recommend the latest Hellblazer, this digital series takes the cake. The world of DCeased (or what’s left of it) has been arguably the best thing DC’s done since ending the “Rebirth” era. Tom Taylor’s multifaceted world essentially borrows the premise of classics JLA: Rock of Ages and Final Crisis, with Darkseid succeeding in conquering Earth with the Anti-Life Equation. Only there’s one small twist: the equation is corrupted, turning all that succumb to it – including Darkseid – into mindless, bloodthirsty savages. Hope at World’s End #2 will show us what happened to Black Adam, and how the Anti-Life Equation affected him differently from everyone else.

Nailbiter Returns #1 (Image Comics)
(w) Joshua Williamson (a) Mike Henderson
The title of this comic says it all, doesn’t it? Nailbiter was a fantastic series about serial killers that hailed from the same small town. With that mystery wrapped up, what more could there be for Williamson and Henderson to explore?
Copycat killers of course. And just like that, we’re back alongside Agent Finch and Sheriff Crane for another suspenseful tale.

Camelot 300 (DC Comics)
(W) Mike W. Barr (A) Brian Bolland (I) Bruce Patterson, Terry Austin (C) Tatjana Wood (L)
I first read Camelot 3000 a few years back when I owned the trade of it. But alas, I sold that with a lot of my collection; I needed the money. Nonetheless, I recently got a bound copy of all of the singles off eBay so it’s time for a reread. I’ve always wanted to get some of my single issues bound, but I’m lazy and still haven’t filled out all of the paperwork. So when I found a comic I like in this format I ordered it. Now, I can’t get enough of custom bound comics.
