Justice League #23 by Scott Snyder, Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sanchez
Josh: Snyder and Jimenez’ run on Justice League has been a gem since it began and the Sixth Dimension arc has been an absolute standout. Jimenez’ designs feel definitive for me in a way I haven’t felt since I watched Justice League Unlimited and Snyder, aside from bringing back Martian Manhunter and Hawkgirl, is a force of nature when it comes to character and story. The last few issues somehow balance ridiculous universe shattering truths with mature moments that I’m completely enamored with.
Savage Avengers #1 by Gerry Duggan, Mike Deodato and Frank Martin Jr.
Jeremy: Any new Avengers book is usually something to look forward to, but having such a brutal team being put together will take it places that we rarely see in a regular Avengers title. If Gerry Duggan hasn’t earned your trust as a writer by now, you’re insane. Mike Deodato jr. On any book is also a good reason to pick it up
Star Wars: Age of Rebellion – Han Solo #1 by Greg Pak, Chris Sprouse, Karl Story, Tamra Bonvillain and Travis Lanham
Milo: A character like Han Solo needs no introduction – one of the coolest protagonists of all time is being brought to life by a promising creative creative team that explores a place in the characters’ history that few have managed to cover beforehand. From writer Greg Pak and artist Chris Spouse, the book sets to focus on the characters’ life between the events of A New Hope & Empire Strikes Back and examine what made him join the Rebellion on a full-time basis. The possibility of witnessing Han encounter someone new like Akko who could potentially out-scoundrel Han himself makes for a fascinating premise, and with veteran Greg Pak at the helm all signs are pointing to a confident start.
