Roundtable Discussion: Must Read Comics!

What is one MUST READ comic from each company you buy from? Only one per company, them’s the rules!


Graham Scherl

DC: Flash
IDW: Ninja Turtles
Boom: Power Rangers
Marvel: Immortal Hulk
Aftershock: Animosity
Ahoy: Wrong Earth
Image: Nailbiter/Nailbiter Returns

John Babos: Flash has been consistently good and I say that as someone who prefers Wally as THE Flash instead of Barry.

Graham: Johns on Barry was garbage, but the Manapul/Buccalatto run and Venditti run for new 52 were pretty good. Williamson has probably crafted my second or third favorite Flash run


Mike Maillaro

Image: Outer Darkness
DC: Batman Beyond
Marvel: New Mutants
Aftershock: Baby Teeth
Ahoy: Wrong Earth (sometimes Dragon Fly/DragonFly Man)
Lion Forge (Magnetic Press): Infinity 8
Boom: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Dark Horse: Black Hammer
IDW: Sonic The Hedgehog

James Fulton: Co-sign on Outer Darkness!

Mike: You got me to read that book ๐Ÿ˜‰

James: That makes me so happy. It’s great. I love the Chew crossover right now too.

Mike: Yeah I am about halfway through Chew. It is amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

James: Guillory’s killing it on Farmhand too.


Matt Graham

Image: Paper Girls
DC: Wonder Woman
Marvel: Unbelievable Gwenpool
Aftershock: Babyteeth
Boom: MM Power Rangers
Dark Horse: Black Hammer
Dynamite: Amu Chu’s Red Sonja run

John: Black Hammer is good, but I have WW to be inconsistent.

Matt: I can’t really click with the majority of their output.


James Fulton

Aftershock: Undone by Blood
AWA: Year Zero
Black Mask: Last Song
Boom: Alienated
Dark Horse: Invisible Kingdom
DC: Far Sector
Dynamite: Vampirella (Priest’s run)
Image: Excellence
Marvel: Daredevil
Oni: Sixth Gun
Panel Syndicate: Bad Karma
Uncivilized Books: Ginseng Roots
Valiant: The Life and Death of Toyo Harada
Vault: No One’s Rose

John: I see I created a Far Sector fan.

James: Iโ€™ve only read the first issue so far but I liked it, and thereโ€™s not a whole lot else coming from DC for me at the moment.


John Babos

Ahoy: Wrong Earth
AfterShock: Was Rough Riders
DC: Suicide Squad
Image: Adventureman
Marvel: Children of the Atom
Valiant: Bloodshot

Mike: Man I miss Rough Riders.

John: Still available in tpb so included it here. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mike: Yeah no reason you can’t. We don’t have rules here!! I was just reminded how much I miss it. I would have loved to see them explore the future versions they teased in that awful one shot which was full price just for pin ups

Matt: Keep meaning to read Wrong Earth

Mike: Definitely a good read. Though I really liked Dragonfly/Dragonflyman too. The parallel story telling there about the characters in their home universe is really well done

Matt: Is it two diff books?

Mike: Sort of. Wrong Earth is a mini about a character who swaps with an alternate reality version of himself.

Dragonfly dragonflyman takes place a few years earlier and is just stories about the heroes on their own world. Sort of the same story told in a silver age style and dark age style at same time.

Matt: I’ll try that one too.
