This Week’s Comics – May 13th, 2015

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:

Injection #1: I welcome the return of this creative team with open arms. Warren Ellis (writer), Declan Shalvey (pencils) and Jordie Bellaire (colors) worked together on the first arc of Moon Knight and I instantly fell in love with their style. They reunite on this Image Comics title, Injection, a sci-fi thriller about “five crazy people” who “poisoned the 21st Century.” It could be literal, it could be about Lil Wayne. I don’t really know, but I’m going to find out.

Harrow County #1: If horror books are your thing, then you need to give Harrow County a try. This new book from Dark Horse is written by Cullen Bunn, an expert in the field of freaky-scary books like MagnetoDeadpool spinoffs, Sinestro, and Wolf Moon. And if you’re thinking, “but Wolf Moon sucked,” you wouldn’t be wrong. But this is different; this is about goblins and demons and full-blown nightmarish stuff. Bring an extra pair of pantaloons for this one.

Darth Vader #5: Of all the Star Wars books hurled at our faces recently, this is the one Hush recommends you read. Vader is inexplicably the bad guy, but he’s also the protagonist, making for an interesting perspective as you make your way through the book. Because of that perspective, there is a deeper look at who he still is underneath it all, ya know, besides a gross blob of human leftovers.
