It has been awhile since our last new comic review and there have been plenty of new comics released in the past few months so we wanted to talk about 4 that we think are exceptional!
You know the format that Jon and I use:
- We review the 1st issue of a new comic.
- This comic has been release within the last 3 months.
- We keep the reviews to just the first issue so not to spoil too much.
- We want you to check out all 4 books because we think they are worth your time.
I do the first review and then Jon does the second. We switch off until we get through all 4 books. So enough of the explanations! Let’s me show you the comics we talk about in podcast…

These are the 4 new series you should be reading, if you are not already. All have great creators with stories that will keep you interested.
Also, as a bit of bonus content. Here is a comparison of the 1984 Iron Man 2020 vs the Peter Woods’ Iron Man 2020. Which do you think is the the better design? I share my thoughts in the podcast.
That’s all for this week. See you in 7.
