(Brian's Pick) War of the Realms from MARVEL COMICS written by Jason Aaron with art by Russell Dauterman
The dark elf Malekith wages a war that has spread from one otherworldly realm to the next, setting them all ablaze, and now it's time for that war to finally explode into the last realm standing: ours. All the worst monsters from the Ten Realms come pouring in over the globe, and it will take the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe to stop them from conquering Earth – and the whole realm! Jason Aaron has been building to this for the last six years in his Thor comic book and the ramifications will have a lasting effect on the Marvel Universe for years to come!
(Rebekah's Pick) Little Bird from IMAGE COMICS written by Darcy Van Poelgeest with art by Ian Bertram
Director/screenwriter DARCY VAN POELGEEST boasts a long list of awards and accolades for his storytelling prowess and brings the same writing finesse to IAN BERTRAM's breathtakingly detailed artwork in the gorgeous, hyper-detailed miniseries LITTLE BIRD, following a young resistance fighter who battles against an oppressive American Empire and searches for her own identity in a world on fire.
(Rod's Pick) Dark Red from AFTERSHOCK COMICS written by Tim Seeley with art by Corin Powell
Charles "Chip" Ipswich isn't one of those coastal elites with a liberal arts degree and a job at a social media start-up who knows where all the best brunch places are... No, Chip is one of the "forgotten men." He lives in a rural area in the middle of the country where Jesus still has a place at the dinner table and where factories send jobs to Calcutta.
(Joe's Pick) Bad Luck Chuck from DARK HORSE COMICS written by Lela Gwenn with art by Matthew Dow Smith
She'll need more than a rabbit's foot to get through this. Cursed at birth, Charlene "Chuck" Manchester hires out her own bad luck, providing disaster where someone else can profit. She can get you that insurance payout fortune-for a price. But bad luck doesn't always go as planned, and when Chuck gets stuck between a dissatisfied crime boss client, a cult leader, and a dogged insurance-fraud investigator, things get... explosive. Everything that could go wrong does-and only about half of it by accident.
