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.

The event was Valiant's answer to Image Expo, with five new titles announced, including the long-rumbled Britannia, plus the previously announced Faith ongoing. Here's the full rundown.

If You Loved ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Read These Comics Next

Civil-War-Featured

Captain America: Civil War is in cinemas now, and everyone’s raving about its impressive set-pieces, complex themes and snappy banter. Marvel Studios and the Russo Brothers not only managed to make possibly the best Captain America film (and the best Avengers film) so far, but they told an awesome, tightly-plotted story that never felt bloated despite the number of characters demanding the spotlight.

The Captain America franchise has always skewed somewhat more toward espionage thrillers than your average superhero series, similar in tone to the Jason Bourne series or the modern day James Bond films. If you loved Civil War and want to try some comics in a similar vein --- but you’ve already read Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting’s Captain America run --- we’ve compiled a list of five of the best independent comics to try next.

Archer & Armstrong Are Heading To Clowntown In ‘A&A’ #6

A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #6

Ever since their return in 2012, Archer and Armstrong have had a series of adventures that I think it's fair to describe as "increasingly weird." They've fought a cult made up of the super-rich, they've fought a different cult that worships the number zero, they've followed a treasure map that was tattooed on a hobo's rear end, and --- most recently --- they've been journeying to the bottom of Armstrong's magic bottomless bag, which was otherwise full of a thousand years' worth of pocket litter. With all that, I have to imagine that it's pretty weird to come up with new situations that are somehow even weirder.

But that is a challenge that Rafer Roberts and Mike Norton have decided to tackle head on in the next arc of A&A. In "Welcome To Clowntown," Valiant's second-favorite mismatched pair find themselves trapped in a carnival staffed entirely with clones of Armstrong.

The Manowar Armor Finally Gets Giant In ‘4001 AD: X-O Manowar’ #1

4001 AD: X-O Manowar #1, Valiant

If you're like me, then you've probably looked at the eponymous suit of armor in the pages of Valiant's X-O Manowar and thought, "Yeah, okay, it's an indestructible suit of space armor that has wrist-rockets and a lightning sword, but wouldn't it be better if it was a hundred feet tall?" If that's the case, well, I have good news, bad news, and worse news.

The good news is that we're finally going to see what that looks like when Valiant's 4001 AD Summer crossover explodes into an X-O Manowar one-shot next week! The bad news is that, as the title indicates, it's not actually going to happen until the 41st century. The worse news is that it happens in a version of the future that's generally described with words like "ruination" and "despair," where people probably aren't doing well enough to appreciate how rad it is to have a giant robot. But we can, if we would only check out a preview below!

With A Name Like ‘The Torment,’ They’re Probably Not Here To Help In ‘X-O Manowar’ #47

X-O Manowar #47, Valiant Entertainment

Here's the nice thing about the world of X-O Manowar: Everything is labeled in a very convenient manner. I mean, just look at the man himself: He's a warrior from barbarian times --- a literal man of war --- flying around in a high-tech exo-suit. And the Vine, the alien race that kidnapped him from barbarian times? They're essentially just cosmic gardeners although their idea of "pruning" tends to involve killing all humans. It's a very straightforward way to keep track of everything.

So when a new group shows up with claims of being a legendary, omnipotent force from beyond the stars, you really hope that they're going to be named something like "The Niceness" or "The Friendlies," or maybe even "The Make-You-Some-Pancakes Bunch." Unfortunately for Aric of Dacia, though, they're called "The Torment," and when X-O Manowar #47 hits in June, from Robert Venditti, Joe Bennett and Roberto De La Torre, they're probably going to live up to that name. Check out a preview (with some unfinished but beautiful art) below!

The Delinquents: A Beginner’s Guide To ‘Divinity’ And ‘Unity’

Delinquents-Divinity

Valiant Comics‘ shared superhero universe is smaller and less familiar than those of its major rivals, but even a small shared universe can offer a lot to learn about. To help those readers looking to take the plunge into the Valiant Universe, we’ve assembled our own team of delinquents to break things down. Steve Morris knows Valiant inside out; J.A. Micheline is new to the universe. Micheline has the questions, and Morris has the answers.

In March, JAM and Steve delved into the handsome hunk brothers Ivar, Timewalker and Eternal Warrior, heading to the past and then the future and back to the past and, well, you get the idea. This month the pair have returned to discuss JAM’s latest assignment: the “monthly event” series Unity, which is wholly entwined within the ongoing stories of the Valiant Universe… as well as the almost completely disconnected events of Divinity.

Take A Very Stressful Vacation To Bloodshot Island In ‘Bloodshot Reborn’ #14 [Preview]

Bloodshot Reborn #14

So here's the thing about being a genetically engineered super-soldier with nanite-infused blood that can heal you from even the most devastating injuries. The same thing that makes you great at getting your job done at all costs, surviving mission after mission to fight again? It also makes you great for training an even better super-soldier, because they can just keep on hunting you as you adapt and learn to become an even tougher opponent. It is, by all reasoning, the perfect way to make a killing machine.

And that, unfortunately, is what Bloodshot's about to find out firsthand when Valiant releases Jeff Lemire, Mico Suayan and David Baron's Bloodshot Reborn #14, which kicks off "Bloodshot Island," a story that introduces us to Deathmate and shows us just how she got so good at killing. Check out a preview, but be warned: There's a Bloodshot Dog in this (which is great), but there's some bad stuff that's happening to him.
