Joys of Recent Reading (Comics)

As part of my move into comics writing, I’ve been reading tons of comics, largely assisted by a giant haul from NYCC.

Here’s a few comics I’ve read recently and enjoyed.

  • Birthright #1 (Joshua Williamson, Andrei Bressan) – Disappeared child story meets epic fantasy quest…with several twists.
  • Moon Knight Vol. 1 (Warren Ellis, Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire) – Batman-esque one-shots starring an Ellis-ified version of the classic Marvel hero.
  • Artful Daggers (Adam P. Knave, Sean E. Williams, Andrew Losq) – Set 50 years after the events of A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court – Anti-authoritarian action espionage.
  • Edge of Spider-Verse #2: Gwen Stacey Spider-Woman (Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez) – THE COOLEST ONE-SHOT where Gwen Stacey gets spider-powers instead of Peter Parker. I am WAY excited about this getting an ongoing comic.
  • Skullkickers Treasure Trove Vol. 1 (Jim Zub, Paul Stevens, Edwin Huang, Misty Coats) – Teenage D&D Sword & Sorcery adventures that starts over-the-top and then keeps going. With bonus shout-outs to Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser in the back matter.
