The Comic Lounge's Picks of the Week (3/11/20)



This book is fucking amazing. Hickman and Huddleston are creating something unlike anything we've ever seen. This is sure to be one of the most talked about books of this year. While Hickman's story is great, it's Huddleston's art that really shines in this book. If this book doesnt win an Eisner, I'll be shocked.

Here's the solicit:

SERIES PREMIERE! There are many assassins in the known universe. This is the story of the most well-mannered one. "Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what knife you use."


This book just might be in my top 3 book of the year already. Yang delivers one of the best basketball stories I've ever read. Not only is he a great writer but a fantastic cartoonist as well. I highly reccomend this book, especially for fellow basketball fans.

Here's the solicit:

In his latest graphic novel, Gene Luen Yang turns the spotlight on his life, his family, and the high school where he teaches. Gene doesn't get sports. But at Bishop O'Dowd High School, it's all anyone can talk about. The men's varsity basketball team, the Dragons, is having a phenomenal season that's been decades in the making. Once Gene gets to know these young all-stars, he realizes that their story is just as thrilling as anything he's seen on a comic book page. What he doesn't know yet is that this season is not only going to change the Dragons' lives, but his own life as well.

FLASH #751

After an awesome anniversary issue last week, we continue the epic "Flash Age" storyline. Things are heating up and this may just be the best arc yet. Plus will we see Jay Garrick show up? The return of Godspeed is exciting and I can't wait to see what Williamson has in store for us.

Here's the solicit:

The Flash battles Godspeed as "Flash Age" continues! In this issue, Paradox enlists Godspeed in his mission to erase the Flash legacy from existence! But when Godspeed's allegiance comes into question, Paradox proves he may be the strongest foe Barry Allen's ever faced!
