Patrick & Myles Pick: {P}: So I figured instead of Myles and myself fighting each month with who gets to pick IDW’s “Jem and the Holograms” by Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell as their favorite comics, I would provide a place for us to settle our differences, and both gush over it. Issue #6 is on your comic book stands this week and we get what we’ve been waiting for this entire series: vehicles shaped liked musical instruments (and now a no spoilers review besides that major spoiler). {M} Yeah, I could not get over those designs at all. SO…

Patrick: My favorite book this week was the first issue of DC comic’s limited series “Bombshells” written by Marguerite Bennett and art by Marguerite Sauvage.  So this week was super hard to pick a stand-out Top-O-The-Pile pick, because there were so many amazing books to release. I want to get back and talk about Phonogram, Mercury Heat and The Eltingville Club, but the physical release of “Bombshells” was so much fun it won out. If you missed the digital release do pick up this book this week, you will not be disappointed. So here we have a fun and beautiful Elseworlds…

Patrick: My pick this week is the penultimate issue in the first arc of IDW’s “Jem and the Holograms #5” written by Kelly Thompson and art by Sophie Campbell. I guess in retrospect I enjoyed the previous issues, but this one really stood out, as we got multiple plot threads and a lot of the action coming to a crescendo. The slow play of the duality of Jerrica/Jem identity catching up with her, and the star-crossed love story between Kimber and Stormer moving along, this issue has a whole lot of great moments. So much happens in this issue that…

Patrick: My pick this week is a new comic from a familiar creator that we have spoken about on the podcast. “Mercury Heat” #1 from Avatar Press Inc, written by Keiron Gillen and art by Omar Francia is out today. Gillen you know from books like cult classic ‘Phonogram’ and the smash hit ‘The Wicked + The Divine’ both from Image comics. We’ve talked on the podcast about the excellent character building and dialogue he brings to Marvel books as well, particularly (my favorite) his run on ‘Young Avengers’. So it was really his name that made me pick this issue off the rack…

Patrick: So this week’s pick for a cool comic is continuing my trend of picking 4-color Superhero books and is a continuation of a previous pick. I choose Image Comic’s “Airboy” by James Robinson and Greg Hinkle #2 this week as the top of my buy pile, it edged out the amazing continuation of Alex De Campi’s “No Mercy” (which you should also read) and Orlando’s “Midnighter” #2 which is a lot of fun. You may recall my review of the first issue of “Airboy” a few weeks back, and I am here to say that the promise of that first…

Patrick: In the third installment of Dark Horse comic’s “Archie vs. Predator” things take a turn from worse to absolutely abysmal for the residents of Riverdale. A teenage predator is on the loose, and hunting and murdering Archie’s gang of pals one by one, or as we saw in the last issue, in a giant group.  Series writer Alex De Campi promised some ridiculous over the top moments in this book, and she has delivered so far in spades. This series has not held a lot of punches as characters have been killed left and right, and this issue is…
