Sonata #4 (Image): It’s a very close call this week because Silver Surfer: Black was excellent, but a tie goes to the creator owned title in the race that’s been a surprise hit this year; if you like stuff like The Dark Crystal, you should be all over Sonata.

Die #7 (Image): I’m going with Die #7, because the meta-commentary about the act of writing itself is so on point and rich.

Batman: Curse of the White Knight #2 (DC): I love the style and consistency of Murphy’s intricate fine lines, it’s also got a bold sweeping narrative scope, and Azrael is one of the coolest characters in the Batman Universe.

No Ivy League (Lion Forge): This reads so effortlessly, with subtle messaging and emotive expressions, having read some of Hazel’s mini comics in the past, it’s great to see an indie creator expand their output into OGN territory.

Silver Surfer: Black #3 (Marvel): Tradd Moore’s art is always a delight, especially when he’s pushing himself like this, and Donny Cates is channeling the classic tragic romanticism of something like Jim Starlin’s Metamorphosis Odyssey.

Lois Lane #2 (DC): This is such a well-balanced comic, dense with ideas, but reads effortlessly, heavy inks to match the sinister nature of the story, but pops off the page with life.

Paper Girls #30 (Image): This is the latest example of creators sticking the landing, doing the shit they wanted to do in the manner they wanted to do it, and that always deserves applause. Creator Owned, Baby!
