Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Justice League Road to Dark Crisis #1

Excellent aftermath to the Death of the Justice League. A simpler version of Funeral for a Friend that nicely showcases hope, heroics, and heritage. This comic will have you do a couple of double takes to what you’ve read before when it comes to Pariah and sets the stage for Dark Crisis #1!

Read Chris Franey’s review:

‘Justice League Road to Dark Crisis’ #1 is paved with good intentions  

Strange #3

I was on the fence with Strange, but Strange #3 made me a believer. MacKay clearly has a strong take on the Sorcerer Supreme with a darker edge. Strange takes Marvel magic to a new gritty street level.

Read David Brooke’s review:

‘Strange’ #3 channels the ’90s-style ‘Marvel Knights’ greatness

Ghost Rider #3

Though obviously Johnny and the Rider’s story, Ghost Rider’s most incredible star is the corrupted America through which they move.

Read Colin Moon’s review:

‘Ghost Rider’ #3 continues a look into the gothic heart of Americana

X-Men ’92: House of XCII #2

Overall, The Closet #1 sets the story with deep unrest. Whether that’s from Thom and his desperate attempt at keeping his family in one piece, or Jamie’s fear of the monster in his closet – the insights that are gathered in this opening issue promise a disturbing, enticing journey for the rest of the miniseries.

‘X-Men ’92: House of XCII’ #2 is great at being old and new again

The Closet #1

Overall, The Closet #1 sets the story with deep unrest. Whether that’s from Thom and his desperate attempt at keeping his family in one piece, or Jamie’s fear of the monster in his closet – the insights that are gathered in this opening issue promise a disturbing, enticing journey for the rest of the miniseries.
