I got three this week (5/25) that I loved:
Squirrel Girl #8 - This book is pretty much always great. One of the most fun books of the last few years and I would absolutely recommend it. (What's extra great is my young son loves it just as much as I do.) Last issue was a fun Choose Your Own Adventure one parter. This issue deals with something the college attending and computer sciences learning and butt kicking superhero and her book have mostly ignored: dating. It's a lot of fun dating misfortune from the sad date with a lovelorn Sentinel to an infuriating one with a "Superhero Truther." Five Stars.
Hellcat #6 - Wow. This book started "just ok" in issue 1 but quickly got great by like issue three. It's like Squirrel Girl in tone in some ways but also very much has its own voice. (The difference is kinda the difference between its protagonists. One is a young college student, the other is a adult woman living in New York City). It's a fun story with lots of She Hulk and fun Marvel guests. This issue in particular is AMAZING though: the guest arist is super clean and super cartoony Japanese anime Pop-style that's perfect for this lighthearted story. And X-men villian Arcade on a nostalgia tour of Coney Island. And Jessica Jones. 5 stars. (And I hope this artist does more art ASAP.)
DC Rebirth - An honestly really great comic. Sets up the themes of the new brighter, more hopeful direction for the DCU really well with a great old style comic story. If you loved DC between say 1985 and the early 2000s this is a strong return to that both metaphorically and literally. Which is a good thing. Hope they follow through as well as they started.
-ZacWilliam, those are my top books this week. What did you buy and love?
