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 August 7, 2019. This week, we’re looking at Powers of X #2 and Hawkman #15.
Hawkman #15 by Robert Venditti, Pat Oliffe, Tom Palmer, Jeremiah Skipper, Starkings & Comicraft
Josh: Robert Venditti has seemed to have wrapped up his first few arcs reacquainting new readers with the big bird boy – so this arc is the beginning of what seems like a less continuity heavy story and more of new territory. That said, if Hawkman’s history has been a deterrent for you, issue #15 might be your way in. The Shadow Thief has just received Luthor’s gift and Carter Hall is figuring out how to deal with them. With Venditti and artists Pat Oliffe and Tom Palmer, this series is not to be missed.
Powers of X #2 by Jonathan Hickman, R.B. Silva and Marte Gracia
Jeremy: Jonathan Hickman is shattering everything we know about the X-Men. The first issue of Powers of X was interesting. We got to meet new and likable characters. Hickman will expand on that in the Powers of X #2 and no doubt reel us further into the story. R.B. Silva’s pencils are gorgeous to look at too. There is so much to like about this series.
