Hi there everyone, Your Friendly Neighborhood Bi, Lauren, and your friend JoeLovesComics are BACK with our Weekly Round-Up of this week’s BEST comics, for your reading pleasure!! What publishers killed it this week? What shocked us this week?! Let's get into it!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Bi, Lauren's, Picks!

#4: Crush & Lobo #6

DC Comics

Writer: Mariko Tamaki

Artist: Amancay Nahuelpan

Colors: Tamra Bonvillain & Nick Filardi

Letterer: Ariana Maher

One of the most underrated limited series out right now, Crush & Lobo has been the most unexpected delight! I’ve never known much about Lobo, much less his daughter Crush, but you can call me a Crush fan after reading this run! She’s a mess just like all of us humans are and I love having a character who is “good” but is relatable. She’s not perfectly noble like Superman. She’s not a villain. She’s a mess of a being just like we all are. Oh, and GAY CONTENT my friends! Pick this run up if you aren’t already, it’s worth it!

#3: The Swamp Thing #9

DC Comics

Writer: Ram V

Artist: Mike Perkins

Colorist: Mike Spicer

Letterer: Aditya Bidikar

Guess what?? This series just got picked up for 6 more issues, starting in March 2022!! Hell Yeah! So… if you were holding out on reading this because you were worried it was just going to be one or done, hold out no longer! This line is going to be the new origin basis for Swamp Thing, mark my words, and you don’t want to miss out on one of the greatest DC books out right now!

#2: World of Darkness: Crimson Thaw #2

Vault Comics

Writers: Jim Zub, Danny Lore, Tim Seeley, Tini Howard and Blake Howard,

Artist: Julius Ohta

Colors: Addison Duke

Letterer: Andworld

If you’re into the gruesomeness of vampires and werewolves and all the supernatural beings related to them, you NEED to be reading this event. You also should read Vampire: The Masquerade, but that’s another story for after you read this event. It is brutal, amazingly drawn, and I absolutely love how it focuses on the politics of all these supernatural beings. Every time any issue comes out in this universe it’s always towards the top of my list. Pick up this BANGER STAT!

#1: Dark Knights of Steel #1

DC Comics

Writer: Tom Taylor

Artist and Colorist: Yasmine Putri

Letterer: Wes Abbot

Honestly, I really thought this was going to be a miss from Tom Taylor. I really did. Not because I wanted it to be, but because this man is writing EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING. And now he’s made another whole new universe with another great creator, Yasmine Putri??? Well, I’m here to tell you this is NOT a miss. It’s just as great as you could hope it to be! Taylor absolutely rocks at creating universes and finding the best creators to join him in this task, and Dark Knights of Steel is perfect evidence of that. The art and colors from Yasmine Putri absolutely hit the mark for the fantasy DC Universe and Wes Abbot makes Taylor’s words shine magnificently. This universe is a triumph already in issue 1 and I sure hope we don’t lose this universe after this line’s run of 12 issues!

Joe’s Picks!

#4: Radiant Black #9
