Episode 91: Our Favs of 2016

This week, we take a look back at all the debut issues we read in 2016 and pick our five favorites (with a few honorable mentions). It was a great year in comics, but a few stood above the rest for us.

The debut review this week is God Country #1, written by Donny Cates and drawn by Geoff Shaw. Other books discussed include Hawkeye, Jessica Jones, Unstoppable Wasp, Inhumans vs X-Men, Uncanny X-Men and A.D. After Death.

Next week's Debut Reviews:

  • The Few #1 - Critically lauded writer and playwright SEAN LEWIS follows up the cult favorite SAINTS with his newest book THE FEW. Teaming with red-hot artist HAYDEN SHERMAN for a LIMITED MAXI-SERIES, THE FEW combines Mad Max action with a Station Eleven sensibility in this sci-fi series for mature readers. In a dystopian future, two survivalist brothers stumble across an unlikely sight: a woman asleep in the woods holding nothing but a gun and a baby wearing a gas mask. As these boys begin to embark on helping this woman, betrayals, secrets, and revolutions abound in the fight for what's left of America.
  • Curse Words #1 - 'THE DEVIL'S DEVIL,' Part One The new ongoing series from CHARLES SOULE (Daredevil, Death of Wolverine, Star Wars) and RYAN BROWNE (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS) is COMING FOR YOU! A wizard has appeared in New York City, and he's casting wonderful spells, getting famous, getting rich-it's great! But it's not. This wizard has everyone fooled. He is actually an EVIL WIZARD, and EVIL THINGS are on the way. CURSE WORDS is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light...and MAGIC.
