Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases for May 18 2016

bce518

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?” The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

It’s with these challenges in mind that we’ve created Best Comic Books Ever (This Week), an ongoing guide curated by the ComicsAlliance staff. This is where new comics readers and seasoned Wednesday shoppers alike can find our picks of the best books the medium has to offer.

Bizarro Back Issues: And Then There Was The Time Dilton Doiley Was Possessed By A Sentient Jean Jacket (2006)

Tales From Riverdale Digest #25, Archie Comics

Last week, when ComicsAlliance launched its poll to determine our readers' favorite Archie character --- and I'm happy to announce that Jughead Jones has taken a considerable lead, narrowly beating Randolph The Kid Who Likes Anime --- I tried to mention a few things about the characters that the average reader might not know. Veronica, for instance, had a storyline where she was revealed to be the prophesied destroyer of all vampires, which is a good thing to know even if it doesn't tip the voting scales in her favor.

But there was one piece of the Riverdale puzzle that I thought I should probably elaborate on: That time that resident nerd Dilton Doiley was possessed by a sentient jean jacket. And believe it or not, it's somehow way weirder than it sounds.

Ryan North And Derek Charm Take Over ‘Jughead’ In September And Are Bringing Sabrina With Them

Jughead-Featured

Archie's reboot titles have been firing on all cylinders from right out of the gate, largely in part to the publisher's adept hand at selecting top quality creators to update and rethink some of the most iconic characters in comics. That trend is set to continue this September as The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl's Ryan North and Trip Fantastic's Derek Charm take over creative duties for Riverdale's hungriest citizen with Jughead #9.

Sonic the Hedgehog #281 Features Two Turbo-Boosted Tales [Preview]

How do you make the adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog even more exciting? You double down on the action and adventure. That's just what Archie's been up to these past few issues, and that trend continues in Sonic the Hedgehog #281, which features two startling stories starring the Blue Blur and his Freedom Fighter friends.

First, you've got Sonic teaming up with a dragon to hunt down a Gaia Key before Metal Sonic can get his rusty hands on it. We've all seen Game of Thrones. I think we can guess how flame breath and metal mix. The results don't seem like they'd be in Metal Sonic's favor. Elsewhere, Tails and Bunnie work together to help a Key Guardian out of a sticky situation. If there's any duo that can get the job done, it's a fox with two tails and a cyborg rabbit.

Poll: Who Is The Best Character In Riverdale?

Who is Riverdale's best character?

Of all the major comic book companies, there's only one named after a single character: Archie Comics. The question is, though, does Archie Andrews himself really deserve that honor? I mean, yes, he's the main character in most of those stories and one point on the greatest love triangle in comics, but can you really look at those books and tell me that company shouldn't be called Jughead Entertainment?

Perhaps you can, but today, we're going to settle this once and for all as we invite you to cast your vote in our latest poll: Just who is the best character Riverdale has to offer?

Learn The Difference Between Archie And Reggie As They Endure The Zombie Apocalypse In ‘Afterlife With Archie’ #9 And 10 [Preview]

Afterlife With Archie #10 Cover

It's been a while since we've had a new issue of Afterlife With Archie, the flagship horror title from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Francesco Francavilla that saw the zombie apocalypse hit Riverdale --- a full year, in fact, with the last issue hitting in May of 2015. Now, though, the book is set to return on May 25, and when it does, it's coming with a pair of issues that sound like they're being solicited by Stefon from Saturday Night Live.
