For National Comic Book Day, Here’s What The Geekiary Is Reading
Maybe you get your comics online through a platform like Comixology. Maybe you have a pull list and hit up at your local comic store every Wednesday to get new releases. However, you get your fix, finding new titles is one of the special joys of comics lovers. For National Comic Book Day, our team is sharing what we’re reading right now!
Before we start, I should mention that Marvel has a free digital bundle for National Comic Book Day. If you’re a collector you might have a couple, but there should be something there for everyone. Go download it before the code (COMICSDAY) expires.
Got your free comics? All righty, let’s see what we’re reading.
In my box right now (aside from Marvel and DC titles, which would take up this whole article) are The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance and Red Sonja And Vampirella Meet Betty And Veronica #5. I ordered the second specifically because I saw Cat Staggs was illustrating a variant cover. Also, I mean…. how do you not grab that title?
It wasn’t on my pull list, but I also grabbed The Plot from Vault Comics which came recommended by Scott Snyder. It is creepy AF, so if you like horror comics I’d track this one down.
Young Avengers, because queer representation! (Editor’s note: everyone should have guessed Farid would add this one since he’s been a Young Avengers stan for basically his whole time here.)
House of X/Powers of X. The new Spider-Man by J.J. Abrams. I need to catch up on Faithless and Once and Future (both from Boom!) and Postal: Deliverance (Image/Top Cow).
All Marvel: Fearless, Captain Marvel, and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
I’m reading the Vox Machina Origins comic series right now!
BEFORE YOU GO…
This isn’t related to National Comic Book Day, but it is something comic book fans will want to know. Catalyst Prime: Seven Days (FINALLY!!!) comes out next week. It’s such an incredible experience to read a superhero universe designed with inclusivity from the ground up: writers, artists, characters, and even the backstage publication team. The CPU really demonstrates the value of diversity in comics. These are perspectives we don’t get to see every day, and it makes one of the earliest comic genres feel fresh and new.
Chief Architect Gail Simone specifically designed it as a jumping-in point to the Catalyst Prime Universe, so if you haven’t tried this new comics universe I can’t recommend it enough.
