New Comic Book Releases For December 7 2016
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.
Avatar Press Launches Kickstarter For Gillen & Gete's 'Uber'
Kieron Gillen's alternate-history World War II comic Uber has grown over the past few years into the backbone of Avatar Press' overall line and is one of the publisher's most well-received and critically acclaimed comics. Along with artists such as Canaan White, Gabriel Andrade, and current artist Daniel Gete, Gillen has built a rich and detailed world where the Nazis breakthrough in creating supermen turned the tide of the war forever.

Hatred, Hope, And Horror: Should You Be Reading 'War Stories'?
Good war comics are much harder to come by than they used to be, but there's at least one source that will remain consistent. Garth Ennis has written some of the most emotionally compelling and contextually complex stories in the genre over the course of his career, and that continues with Avatar's War Stories, with artist Tomas Aira.
Expert Guide To True Detective And Weird Comic Book Fiction
True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto has claimed that Alan Moore Moore and Grant Morrison were the first writers to excite him about the possibilities of storytelling. With everyone looking to solve the many remaining mysteries of True Detective, it’s tempting to ask: are comic books the key? Pizzolatto’s spectacular Moore crib aside, I’d go with with a big no. Ain’t nothing going to settle the debate around Carcosa let alone Marty Hart’s hot dating skills, but comics do represent a largely unexplored and appropriately strange route into the show. So without further ado here’s our by no means exhaustive guide to True Detective and weird comic books.
