The Best Comic Book Shop in Abbotsford

Comics to Read This Week: PAPER GIRLS, DEATH’S HEAD, MANOR BLACK, and More

Welcome, Wednesday Warriors! It’s new comic book day! But before you head to the local comic shop, arm yourself with a few recommendations. It’s one of those rare fifth Wednesdays, which can often mean a lighter load of new comic books. Fortunately, this week is not light on quality as there is plenty of awesome stuff hitting shelves. We’re highlighting a few of the books we think you absolutely have to check out, so take a peek below.  Or, if you are a hardcore collector, we also have a complete list of this week’s releases.

As usual, we will touch on a plot detail or two below, which means you are officially entering spoiler territory. You’ve been warned, friends!

PAPER GIRLS #30

Written By: Brian K. Vaughan
Art By: Cliff Chiang
Colors By: Matt Wilson
Letters By: Jaren K. Fletcher

It’s been a big year for final issues—some we’ve been counting down to and some that hit us unexpectedly. We knew Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang, and Matt Wilson’s amazing series Paper Girls was coming to an end, but we still don’t feel ready for it. Few comics have utterly captivated us the way Paper Girls has and while it’ been building to this ending for a while now, it’s hard to let it go. The time-traveling adventure of Erin, Mac, KJ, and Tiffany is easily one of the best series to ever grace the medium; from the funny, heartfelt script to the gorgeous artwork, Paper Girls is essentially flawless. All good things come to an end, but that doesn’t mean it stings any less. Thanks for consistently kicking ass, Paper Girls.

BATMAN: LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH #2

Written By: Scott Snyder
Art By: Greg Capullo
Colors By: Jonathan Glapion
Letters By: FCO Plascencia

Batman: Last Knight on Earth is a strange comic book. This second issue only ramps up the weirdness, which in turn only makes us love this book more. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo are unhinged here, throwing endless nightmares and twisted versions of the DC Universe at us, burying the reader in a sea of death and madness. Snyder has really embraced the crazy side of superhero comics lately, and Batman: Last Knight on Earth feels like a dark reflection of that. Also, if you’re gonna have a scene where Wonder Woman disembowels a clone of Superman, you want Greg Capullo on board to bring it to life. Capullo was always a perfect fit for the dark, shadowy world of Batman, but he also draws monsters and gory deaths better than just about anybody, so it’s awesome to see those worlds collide. Batman: Last Knight on Earth is utterly bizarre and it’s hard to see where this thing could possibly go from here, but that’s sorta what makes it so great.

DEATH’S HEAD #1

Written By: Tini Howard
Art By: Kei Zama
Colors By: Felipe Sobreiro
Letters By: VC’s Travis Lanham

Those of us who grew up reading comic books in the ’90s know just how awesome Death’s Head is. The character is so over the top, so soaked in excess, it’s hard to imagine how he ever fit into the world of the Marvel Universe. Death’s Head feels like an escapee from 2000 AD; he’s a suped-up robot bounty hunter who travels through time. Marvel’s latest relaunch of the character plops him squarely in the main Marvel Universe and has him throwing down with some of the Young Avengers. Death’s Head #1 moves incredibly fast and spends little time wallowing in the details or history of the character. Tini Howard and Kei Zama just plug in and crank things to 11, and this title is all the better for it. We’re definitely hooked and ready for the second issue.

MANOR BLACK #1

Written By: Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt
Art By: Tyler Crook
Colors By: Tyler Crook

Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook already produced one masterpiece together, the dark and menacing Harrow County which is rightfully heralded as one of the best horror comics of all time. It should go without saying then that a new comic series by Bunn and Crook is a must-buy. The fact that they are joined by Brian Hurtt, Bunn’s collaborator on the brilliant Sixth Gun, just sweetens the pot. Manor Black is everything these guys do well, horror, magic, and mystery. It’s one part haunted house story and one part grindhouse monster tale. Bunn and Hurtt provide a twisty and engaging script while Crook rich art breathes life into the sinister characters contained in this issue. Manor Black #1 is everything you could want in a debut and then some; it’s devilishly clever and drenched in shadowy mysteries. It’s a damn fine comic book that proves that Bunn, Hurtt, and Crook are some of the best creators in the industry,

Okay, that’s it for us this week! Let us know what comics you are picking up in the comments below!
