All-Comic’s You Should Be Reading is the weekly list of comics we can’t wait to get our hands on. Each of our writers picks their most-anticipated comic for the upcoming week and sums up why it needs to be on your radar. Get your comic shop on the phone – here’s what you should be reading on September 4, 2019. This week, we’re looking at a couple of DC’s maxiseries with Doomsday Clock #11 and Lois Lane #3.
Doomsday Clock #11 by Geoff Johns, Gary Frank, Brad Anderson, Rob Leigh
Jeremy: Doomsday Clock is usually the best book on the shelf when it comes out. The delays are killing it, but when you get your hands on a new issue, you get sucked back into the brilliantly crafted story. Geoff Johns is absolutely an amazing talent, and this story will change the DC landscape moving forward. Gary Frank’s art is amazing as well. This is a wonderful book that is extremely well written. Once the series is finished, we’ll be talking about how important it is to the DC universe and what a masterpiece it was.
Lois Lane #3 by Greg Rucka, Mike Perkins, Paul Mounts, Simon Bowland
Josh: We were hyped about this series when it first released – and we’re still hyped about it now. Rucka’s scripts are some of the best treatment Lois has gotten in a long time, and it’s thrilling to watch her follow this case as one of the planet’s best journalists, as well as Superman’s better half. Given that this is one of comics’ most popular couples, Lois proves throughout these first two issues that she really does make him better at his job. Mike Perkins on art, meanwhile, sells both sides of this story. His pages make this book a fresh look back on noir films – and he does that while juggling the dynamic romance between Lois and Clark. Pick up this book and pick up five more copies. I know someone who would love for this to become an ongoing.
