YOU SHOULD BE READING: November 6, 2019
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 November 6, 2019. This week, we’re looking at Ghost Rider #2, New Mutants #1 and Undiscovered Country #1.
Ghost Rider #2 by Ed Brisson, Aaron Kuder, Jason Keith, Joe Caramagna
Luke: After a compelling first issue, Ed Brisson’s run on Ghost Rider is continuing this week with Ghost Rider #2. It’s exciting to see Johnny Blaze as King of Hell after the Damnation crossover event. Aaron Kuder’s art has made this all pop, with the design of all of the demons and monsters. The juxtaposition between how accepting Johnny is of his role as the Ghost Rider when compared to Danny, who is running away from it, is great and coming to a head as, this week, it looks like we may get Ghost Rider vs Ghost Rider. Which spirit of vengeance deserves the throne? Let’s find out!
New Mutants #1 by Ed Brisson, Jonathan Hickman, Rod Reis, Travis Lanham
Jeremy: With all the new books coming out after HOX/POX, it’s hard to choose where to spend your money. New Mutants is an interesting book because of the team and the fact that Hickman is involved in writing it. If you have a love for characters like Cannonball, this is a must buy. The fleshing out that Hickman will do to these characters is worth the price. The mutant train will keep on rolling with New Mutants.
Undiscovered Country #1 by Scott Snyder, Charles Soule, Daniele Orlandini, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Matt Wilson
Josh: Scott Snyder is finally making his way back into the indie scene after an extended and re-extended hiatus from titles like Wytches and American Vampire. He’s working alongside Charles Soule, artists Daniele Orlandini and Giuseppe Camuncoli and all-star colorist Matt Wilson for a timely, near-future political drama. If that concept sounds cool to you, you couldn’t ask for a better team to execute it.
