The last new comic day of the year brings a wild 2020 to a close. At least comics were there for fans to help navigate all of the problems and gave us a legitimate excuse to stay home and overindulge in the medium.
This week was heavy on Marvel titles (which naturally happens from time to time) with a number of the titles picking up steam and generating a lot of buzz from fans.
This week was a tough one to narrow down to five choices, so we went with some landmark issues, a few continuing series, and a brand new horror title just in time for Halloween.
As evidenced by the beautiful villain-filled cover by Alex Ross, Christopher Cantwell’s new series plans to take Stark back to his “glory days” with a modern sensibility and a keen focus on characterization.
Writer Chris Cantwell is jumping from one iron-suited character to another in September, switching out Doctor Doom’s grim visage for the classic red and gold sheen of Iron Man.
After seeing The Mummy, I am happy to say that I still have hope for the Dark Universe if Universal learns the right lessons from this movie’s performance and reception.
