This Week’s Comics – January 20th, 2016

This Week’s Comics is the pull list of Comic Books recommended by Hush Comics, with notes and suggestions by co-owner, Sherif Elkhatib.

Recommendations:

American Monster #1: This one is gonna fly under the radar, but it’s the second intriguing book I’ve seen from Aftershock now. Written by Brian Azzarello, it follows the same theme of moral ambiguity that books like 100 Bullets made him so famous for.

Robin: Son of Batman #8: With Robin War over, Damian has a lot of soul searching to do. In this next issue, he apparently reconvenes with Talia… who is… NOT dead? It seems like a terrible idea given that he joined the freaking Court of Owls a few weeks ago, going back to the League of Assassins seems like a poor life choice.

Devolution #1: It might seem like some I Am Legend stuff here, but this is written by Rick Remender, so you know it’ll have some insane plot twists. It’s basically about a group of fully-cognitive humans trying to survive a world full of cavemen savages. Oh, and it’s colored by Deadly Class‘s Jordan Boyd.

The Walking Dead #150: Look, regardless of how you feel about this book, the show, or emperor Robert Kirkman, himself, you have to give respect where it’s due. Any independent comic book that makes it to 150 issues should be applauded. The story? Yeah, sure; it’ll be great, I’m sure…
