Get your comic shop on the phone – here’s what you should be reading on August 7, 2019. This week, we’re looking at Absolute Carnage #1, Justice League #29 and Savage Avengers #4.
Absolute Carnage #1 by Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, JP Mayer, Frank Martin and Clayton Cowles
Milo: Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman are back for more after bringing us Venom last year, and if Absolute Carnage is anything similiar to the high quality of that issue then we’re going to be in for a hell of a ride. Coming in at a grand total of 60 pages Cletus Kasady’s return to New York is sure to be a memorable one. Stegman’s art looks set to be eye catching and combined Frank Martin on colors should make sure that Carnage look better than ever.
Justice League #29 by Scott Snyder, James T. Tynion IV, Bruno Redondo, Hi-Fi and Tom Napolitano
Josh: Since Scott Snyder took over on this series, it’s consistently been on the top of my pull. His and James T Tynion IV’s plotting, along with Jorge Jimenez’ definitive art blow me away every month. Although Jimenez is still on hiatus for the time being,
Savage Avengers #4 by Gerry Duggan, Mike Deodato, Frank Martin and Travis Lanham
Jeremy: The level of fun seeing an Avengers team just destroy vile opponents is almost unmatched. Gerry Dugan has done a great job of making this book interesting and bloody, the latter is not something we normally get from normal Avengers books. Mike Deodato’s moody art sets the tone nicely to make the pages look eerie in a way. Savage Avengers is my favorite Avengers book on the shelf.
