The Comic Lounge Picks of the Week (8/7)

Updated: Jan 25, 2020


This series has been nothing short of amazing. Not since the great Geoff Johns has GREEN LANTERN been this good. From the fertile mind of Grant Morrison and the imaginative imagery of Liam Sharp, this has been one of the best books month in and month out. This issue brings together Green Lanterns from around the Multiverse, and since I'm a sucker for alternate worlds this is my top pick for the week.

Here's the solicit:

Twelve parallel worlds! Twelve Green Lanterns! And one unstoppable menace! Hal Jordan joins the Green Lanterns of the Multiverse-including Bat-Lantern, Tangent Green Lantern and more-to save a dying Multiverse, defeat the relentless Anti-Man and embark upon their "Quest for the Cosmic Grail"! It's another Morrison/Sharp science fantasy epic!


The event all of you Venom heads have been waiting for. The buildup to this story has been insanely captivating. Cates and Stegman have brought Carnage back and he's set to wreak havoc on the entire Marvel Universe. This is one event that you won't want to miss.

Here's the solicit:

After turning Venom's world upside down a year ago, DONNY CATES and RYAN STEGMAN are about to put the Sinister Symbiote through hell again, only this time CARNAGE has come calling, and everyone who's ever worn a symbiote is dead in his sights! He's skirted the periphery of the Marvel Universe for months, but Cletus Kasady at last stands poised to make his grand return to New York in a blistering 60-PAGE story... and he wants to paint the town red!


THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!! I read an early copy and this easily one of the best new series at Image. It's weird, unique and beautiful all at once. I'm already eager to read this one again. I can't even describe the book and do it justice. But take my word this is one you better race to your LCS to get, it's already going back to a 2nd printing.

Here's the solicit:

SERIES PREMIERE! Cars! Guns! Entropy! Chased by an unstoppable killer, Izzy Tyburn has decided that if the world won't have her in it, it can have nothing of her at all. She's re-treading her life, leaving nothing but burned rubber, ash, and the sun-scorched bones of those who get in her way. Join writer DAN WATTERS (Sandman Universe: Lucifer, LIMBO), artist DANI (2000AD, Girl with No Name), and colorist BRAD SIMPSON (JESUSFREAK, MCMLXXV) on a road trip through a blood-splattered life.


Lemire and Deodato on a barbarian story. That's all you need to know. The first issue was everything you could hope it would be and more. Another great book in a string of new series from Dark Horse. This is one that deserves a spot on everyone's pull.

Here's the solicit:

A merciless sword and sorcery warrior finds himself blasted through a wormhole to a modern-day metropolis where he must protect those around him from an evil wizard determined to send him to hell. From the Eisner Award-winning team of Jeff Lemire, Mike Deodato Jr., and Frank Martin comes this urban warrior fantasy series!
