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 October 23, 2019. This week, we’re looking at Batman/Superman #3, G.I. Joe #2 and Punisher Kill Krew #4.
Batman/Superman #3 by Joshua Williamson, David Marquez, Alejandro Sanchez, John J. Hill
Jeremy: The saga of the Batman Who Laughs continues as he builds his laughing army. Last issue we saw the Superman Who Laughs, but Joshua Williamson has a plan. This has all been interesting to see play out on the page, and the Batman Who Laughs is a fun villain to read. Williamson also writes the dynamic between Clark and Bruce, something we need to see more at DC.
G. I. Joe #2 by Paul Allor, Chris Evenhuis, Brittany Peer, Neil Uyetake
Josh: Last month, I read a G.I. Joe comic for the first time and, I gotta say, I’m pretty happy I did. Words by Paul Allor make for a story with a diverse cast that’s timely, but not overbearing. Art by Chris Evenhuis makes every page crisp and stylish. The first issue of this comic is good, clean fun, pure and simple. If you’re in the market for a cool espionage comic about resistance – look no further than G.I. Joe #2. (Also shoutout to Brittany Peer’s dope colors).
Punisher Kill Krew #4 by Gerry Duggan, Juan Ferreyra, Cory Petit
Luke: What at first appears to be a spin off with a silly, misspelled title has turned into one of the most fun books in Marvel’s repertoire. This limited series captures the whimsical nature of the MCU with the brutal violence only the Punisher can dole out. Gerry Duggan is telling a fantastic story that is brought to life by Juan Ferreyra’s sharp art.
