This week, we’ve got aliens, talking ducks, and sea creatures in the rankings.

As always, this ranking is based on accessibility first, then quality and your humble critic’s personal taste. A low ranking for an issue doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s bad, just that new readers or those not already following the book may not be able to pick it up as easily. The better the book is, though, the more worth the effort. And on that note, who took No. 1?

1. Resident Alien: The Sam Hain Mystery #2

resident_alien_dark_horse

Dark Horse

Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse deliver a bittersweet followup issue to their quiet story of an alien pretending to be a doctor in a small town. The central mystery of the story is solved fairly quickly, it turns out, but the real plot hinges much more on the emotional connection between the characters. Probably one of the warmest, most human books on the stands, even dealing with ugly subjects, and a must-read.

2. Howard the Duck #4

howard_the_duck_4_marvel

Marvel

Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones continue their comedic rampage through the dregs of the Marvel Universe! This issue is a hoot for a number of reasons, and Joe Quinones does his best Ditko impression in a wonderful sequence that makes me want him on a Doctor Strange book. Easily the best comedy book on the stands this week, and a great read all around.

3. Past Aways #4

past_aways_4_dark_horse

Dark Horse

Matt Kindt and Scott Kolins continue hilariously ripping on two-fisted time travel stories, as the leader of this team of misfits goes to see a psychologist and a traitor is revealed in our midst. But, it’s all slightly off-kilter, not least because Scott Kolins once again gets to… indulge himself with some unusual panel orientations and creature design. This is rapidly becoming my favorite adventure book on the stands, and this marks a good point to jump onto.

4. Daredevil #16

daredevil_16_marvel

Marvel

It’s sad Mark Waid and Chris Samnee are wrapping up their run on Daredevil, but they are going out on one hell of a high note. To divulge anything else would be spoilery, so just go read this book.

5. Gotham By Midnight #6

gotham_by_midnight_6_dc

DC Comics

What a difference an artist makes. Putting Juan Ferreyra, one of the premiere horror artists in comics right now, on this book really ups the tone and makes this a perfect jumping-on point. Granted, Ferreyra is asked by Ray Fawkes to dial it back a bit, which is too bad, but they work well as writer and artist, and I can’t wait to see what they’ve got next.

6. Ninjak #4

ninjak_4_valiant

Valiant

Valiant’s had a strong run of villain issues lately, with the latest issue of Ninjak taking a sidestep and explaining just who Roku, the lady with the killer hair, really is, and why she knows Ninjak so well. It’s a fascinating issue, blending no fewer than three different art styles with a fairly layered, fairy-tale-like story. Even if you’re not following this tale of intrigue elsewhere, this issue is worth picking up.

7. Batgirl #41

batgirl_41_dc_comics

DC Comics

The new Batman is after all of Gotham’s vigilantes, including, you guessed it, Babs. How the plot is set up clicks a lot more smoothly than you’d think in this book, and really it’s Babs’ characterization and Babs Tarr’s art that make the book as fun as it feels.

8. The Black Hood #5

the_black_hood_5_archie

Archie Publications

The Black Hood wraps up his first arc in style as Greg Hettinger faces his demons and the drug lords of Philadelphia. Really, these last five issues have been a nice, cogent arc, a tasty little superheroic noir with a grounded sense of reality. It’s worth picking up the whole run if you’re a fan of noir.

9. Justice League 3001 #1

justice_league_3001_1_dc

DC Comics

J.M. DeMatteis, Keith Giffen, and Howard Porter continue to stealthily revive Justice League International in the far off year of 3001. It’s actually a clever reinvention and a good jumping on point, right down to mocking one of the dumbest Guy Gardner plots ever written. It’s a nice “alternate reality” book for people who want to try some of DC’s weirder stuff. Oh, and it’s funny. That’s a nice bonus.

10. Ufology #3

ufology_3_boom_studios

Boom! Studios

Our high school heroine has a glowing emblem on her face, and things are just getting weirder. Really, while James Tynion IV is driving the plot, this is Matthew Fox’s time to shine. He mixes psychedelic imagery with classic BEMs and grounded, realistic art, complete with a beautiful time-jumping two-page spread. In truth, the art’s a bit better than the script, but it’s a good read.

11. Superman #41

superman_41_dc

DC Comics

The backstory about Superman’s identity leaking to the world is actually something of a Superman chestnut; a shadowy figure knows Clark’s true identity, and is blackmailing him. Clark, though, isn’t just going to take it. Honestly, we probably could have used this before the whole thing got started, but it’s a fun read from Gene Luen Yang, and I’m looking forward to what else he’s got coming.

12. Grayson #9

grayson_9_dc

DC Comics

Tim Seeley and Tom King continue their take on Archer, er, heh, the superspy book with Dick Grayson. That said, you will blurt PHRASING! at least one time reading this book, and the superspy shenanigans are highly amusing. Well worth a read, especially for intrigue fans.

13. The Flash #41

the_flash_41_dc

DC Comics

Henry Allen didn’t kill his wife. But it turns out, you don’t mess with Henry Allen, as this story proves. It’s still a bit conventional, but it’s a fun read, and it brings back a great villain.

14. Aquaman #41

aquaman_41_dc

DC Comics

Something about this book just doesn’t quite click. The concept is awesome: Aquaman is on the run from Atlantis, fighting eldritch horrors, and there’s even more to it than it sounds. It just doesn’t quite take off. Still a fun read, though, and it might click as it goes along.

15. We Are Robin #1

we_are_robin_1_dc

DC Comics

Gotham’s teen have decided it shouldn’t just be rich people with issues who serve as Gotham’s vigilantes. We Are Robin largely works thanks to Jorge Corona’s angular, kinetic artwork as Lee Bermejo’s script is pretty conventional for a book like this. Still, it’s a fun concept, and it’s got some promise.

16. Fight Club 2 #2

fight_club_2_2_dark_horse

Dark Horse

This comic is still a little too obsessed with the call-backs to the first book, but something has shifted into gear, here. “Sebastian” and Marla are actually feeling like a couple who are married, not just their counterparts from the book with a few wrinkles, and when the book calls back, when “Sebastian” demands somebody hit him as hard as she can, it actually has some genuine weight. Still not perfect, still trading too much on past glories rather than being its own thing, but there’s the beginnings of something that actually builds on the original, here.

17. Surface Tension #2

surface_tension_2_titan_comics

Titan Comics

In this book, the apocalypse takes the form of billions of people marching into the sea. After that, a few survivors on an island try to make a go of civilization… but the “sea sickness” and the monsters it’s created are not done with humanity just yet. In truth, Jay Gunn has some interesting ideas here, but I just can’t get past the coloring and inking. The pastel color work combined with Gunn’s light touch on inking just won’t gel with the tone, especially when Gunn rolls out his excellent, detailed monster design. It’s just too smooth and bland, and the result is that you can’t really feel scared, even when you’ve got a skull-faced tentacle monster about to eat a baby. Not bad, and certainly a creative change of pace in horror books, but Gunn’s taking too much on here.

18. Green Lantern: Lost Army #1

green_lantern_lost_army_1_dc

DC Comics

John Stewart and Guy Gardner are lost in the cosmos with a few Lanterns and need to find their way home. You know. Again. Cullen Bunn and Jesus Saiz will keep the fans happy with this competent and fun book, but there’s just not much here for the new reader or non-Lantern fan.

19. Mulan Revelations #1

mulan_revelations_1_dark_horse

Dark Horse

Marc Andreyko and Micah Kaneshiro deliver… well, a pretty generic cyberpunk book, if I’m being honest. Andreyko’s hands are somewhat tied by being a hired gun, so he can’t really make the idea of Mulan, yes, that Mulan, in 2125 Shanghai sing the way he can at his best. Kaneshiro’s overly smooth art really doesn’t help matters, feeling more like a cel-shaded video game than a comic. Overall, not bad, just… not terribly memorable, sadly.

20. Teen Titans #9

teen_titans_9_dc

DC Comics

Try as I might, I just can’t get involved in this story of rival Titan teams. It’s okay, I guess, but not engaging enough or distinct enough to truly stand out.

21. Grindhouse: Drive In Bleed Out #6

grindhouse_6_dark_horse

Dark Horse

How could this misstep from this series, treading the ground of blaxploitation/kung-fu movies, get worse? It can get really preachy, that’s how. Alex de Campi is saying things that need to be said, but her lecture manages to both completely derail the plot and honestly kind of trivialize the message into the bargain. Hopefully this book can regain its footing for the final two-parter.

22. Deathstroke #7

deathstroke_7_dc

DC Comics

Deathstroke kills things. It looks pretty. That’s about the depth we get out of this. Hey, at least it’s pretty!

23. Garbage Pail Kids: Gross Encounters Of The Turd Kind

garbage_pail_kids_idw

IDW Publishing

This anthology book is a bit stronger not least because Mars Attacks is naturally gross. And while it’s more than a little uneven, with the strongest strips being the opener and the James Kochalka strip, the overall quality is better. It’s… well, all toilet humor; the subtlest gag is that cover. But it’s got a nice MAD Magazine edge to it that previous anthologies in this series have lacked, which helps. Definitely for kids, but an improvement.
