BestComics_0406

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.

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

Kingsman: The Secret Service, based on the Icon comic by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, was the big sleeper hit of 2015, its nihilistic sense of black humor and highly stylized action resonating with a surprisingly large audience.

Millar & Immonen Go On The Run In ‘Empress’ #1 [Preview]

Empress-Header

Mark Millar has been the lynch-pin of Marvel’s creator owned imprint Icon for the past several years, way back to the first volume of Kick-Ass in 2008. Since then, at Icon and beyond, he’s generated a wave of new independent comics with A-List collaborators such as Steve McNiven, Frank Quitely and Sean Gordon Murphy, and many of those books have been adapted to films.

Empress continues Millar’s trend of superstar collaborators as he teams with Stuart Immonen (plus inker Wade von Grawbadger and colorist Ive Svorcina) to tell a sprawling sci-fi story about an enslaved intergalactic queen on the run from her tyrannical husband, with her three children in tow. Check out a preview!
