Top of the Pile – The Best Comics I’ve Read from December 2016 (Part II)

Daredevil 15

Completely blown away by this issue. It reads like a horror flick and is beautifully dark and gritty – the way Daredevil is supposed to be. This issue is so good, it actually made me sick. Muse is a great villain.

Grounded: Starlord 1

Perfect Star Lord dialogue mixed in with so many good X-men cameos.

Jessia Jones 3

The entire issue only features 2 settings – but it doesn’t matter. The writing is what keeps you engaged and the villain is creepy AF.

Top of the Pile – The best comics I’ve read this month (so far) – 12/19/16

Josie and the Pussycats 3

Jesus Christ. I’ve never laughed out loud as much before from reading a comic. This books is sooo crushingly self-aware,
it hurts in belly laughs. The Olympics reference really got me, as well as
the “comic book logic” bit. I love how Bennett adds a level of complexity to
very two dimensional characters (;D). It questioned my thoughts on Josie’s intentions and I kinda see Alan M. as a dick now – gotta love the grey areas. I love the historical nods at the end of every issue. Oh, and Mok is destroying the art.

Moon Knight 9

One of the best series to come out of 2016. This issue finally give some
clarity on the whole – “is-Marc-Spector-Bat-Shit-Insane-Or-Not?” question. However,
the letters page promises that perhaps not everything is as it seems – hooray! All the
artists on this issue killed it. This comic was my first introduction to Moon
Knight, and he has since become one of my top 5 heroes.

Motor Crush 1

I’ve heard nothing but good things about Motor Crush and this time, the
internet did not let me down! The art design in this book is amazing; the
logo, the settings, the character design. Who doesn’t love a badass on a motor cycle
gambling with their life? Soo many cosplayers are going to be all over Domino. Pick up this issue if you’re into wild rides. Can’t wait for issue 2.

More pulls after the jump…..
