Curse Words #17 by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne
Curse Words is one of my favorite currently-running series. It’s a fun story about wizards and magic, it’s quirky, and the art and colors are stunning.
Mr & Mrs X #4 by Kelly Thompson and Oscar Bazaldua
Gambit has been one of my favorite Marvel characters since I watched the X-Men cartoons as a child, and when he and Rogue got married earlier this year, I quite literally screeched from excitement. I love everything about this series, and Kelly Thompson is a wonderful comic book writer.
Shuri #1 by Nnedi Okorafor and Leonardo Romero
Nnedi Okorafor is the author of the Binti series. I’m thrilled that Shuri is getting her own series, and they couldn’t have chosen a better writer.
X-Men Black Mystique #1 by Seanan McGuire, Zac Thompson, Lonnie Nadler, and Marco Failla
This issue is all about the life and adventures of Raven Darkholme, also known as Mystique. She’s always been an intriguing character to me, so I’m looking forward to reading this.
American Gods My Ainsel #7 by Neil Gaiman, P. Craig Russell, and Scott Hampton
Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors, and American Gods is one of my favorite books. This is a comic book retelling of Gaiman’s novel.
Injustice 2 #36 by Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo
I’m mentioning this one simply because I believe that Tom Taylor is one of the best comic book writers currently working. His work on All-New Wolverine was incredible.
Gideon Falls #7 by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino
While I haven’t actually read this series myself yet, I’ve heard from so many others that this is a great series. It’s already been picked up for a television series.
Stellar #5 by Joseph Keatinge and Bret Blevins
In this new series, “Stellar visits the family she never had – and fights for her life, with more on the line than ever before!”
Daredevil Vol 5 #609 by Charles Soule and Phil Noto
With the much-anticipated release of season three of Netflix’s Daredevil being released today (!), now is the perfect time to start reading the comic series, or get caught up with it.
Infinity Wars Weapon Hex #1 by Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, and Gerardo Sandoval
Part of the on-going Infinity Wars Marvel event, this issue focuses on Wanda, part of a dark weapons programs, and one of the deadliest people now on earth.
