Weekly Round-Up With Lauren and Joe!

For new releases 10/27/21!

Hi there everyone, Your Friendly Neighborhood Bi, Lauren, and your friend JoeLovesComics here! We decided to start combining our favorite comics each week into a mass Weekly Roundup for your reading pleasure!! This week, in particular, there were SO many new releases and so many books to talk about, so it was very hard to narrow it down, but we both picked our top 4 picks of the week! Let's get into it!

Your Friendly Neighborhood Bi, Lauren's, picks!

#4: Marauders #25

Marvel Comics

Writer: Gerry Duggan

Artist: Phil Noto

Letterer: Cory Petit

Y’all, I never thought I’d see Star Wars themes mesh up with X-Men themes so well, but here we are! I absolutely LOVE seeing these rag-tag (Minus Emma Frost, of course) X-Men in space! In particular, I’m a HUGE fan of Emma Frost and Kate Pryde’s friendship. I’m trying not to think of them any other way… anyways! A FANTASTIC issue!

#3: Moon Knight #4

Marvel Comics

Writer: Jed MacKay

Artist: Alessandro Cappuccio

Colorist: Rachelle Rosenberg

Letterer: Cory Petit

This run is my first time with Moon Knight and let me tell you.. I absolutely adore how character-driven this line is. I gave issue 1 a shot on a whim and it’s been beyond worth every issue so far. Batman fans, remember when you first read your favorite Batman origin, whether it’s Year One or something else, and how that one characterization of him solidified your love for him? If you’re not a Batman fan, think of literally any other character you’ve fallen in love with just because of who they are and the great origin they were given. That’s what this line does for Moon Knight- it gives him a great origin and can make anyone fall in love with his character, new fans, or old fans. I also loved Tigra in this issue and her friendship with Moon Knight. 100% this is shaping up to be one of the best current Marvel lines, easily!

#2: Second Chances #3

Images Comics

Writer: Ricky Mammone

Artist: Max Bertolini

Letterer: D.C. Hopkins

This is one of my favorite indie titles out right now and it’s wildly underappreciated! Check out my full reviews of all three issues at these links:

Issue 1 Issue 2 Issue 3

#1: Inferno #2

Marvel Comics

Writer: Jonathan Hickman

Artist: Stefano Caselli

Colorist: David Curiel

Letterer: Joe Sabino

If y’all don’t already know, I am a HUGE X-Men fan and this Krakoan era has been nothing short of amazing- mostly due to Jonathan Hickman’s original start to the era, House of X/Powers of X. I was worried how Inferno would go, based on the current X books and how many of them have been seemingly ignoring what Hickman’s tale originally started, but yall?? HICKMAN HAS BROUGHT IT BACK and it’s so good! I don’t want this event to end! This is what the era is all about; all the chess pieces are flying everywhere and it's very validating to see multiple of the chess pieces are powerful LGBTQ+ characters! I cannot recommend this enough- if you haven’t been reading X-Men, come bother me on Twitter and I’ll get you started easily! It’s WORTH it!
