Top 5 Comics to Read: April 2019
One of the biggest goals that I had when I added a comics section to this blog was the hope that it'd get a few people to consider reading them again. Even one more person picking the habit back up is a success. So, why not take that one step further and make it easier to pick what to get next time you're at a comic store or you're staring at your ComiXology account. Note that we'll be specifically looking at individual issues versus trades with these posts. Also, know that this was pretty hard to narrow down to just five, but I think you'll walk away happy if these are the only things you pick up. Oh, and I cheated slightly with the #1 pick...
5. The Green Lantern #6
"Hal Jordan's final initiation test to join the Blackstars? Kill Adam Strange! In this issue, Controller Mu and his Blackstar goon squad have invaded and occupied the planet Rann, and its protector is at their mercy! When planet after planet has fallen to the Blackstars-and these monsters are at Rann's gate-does the galaxy have any hope to survive?"
Out: April 3rd
4. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #38
"The Power Rangers arrive at the home of the Solar Ranger...and learn the shocking secret behind the universe that's drawn them together!"
Out: April 24th
3. Detective Comics #1001
"After 1,000 issues, you’d think Batman could finally have a break…but no: as a new era dawns, he’s facing the most dangerous threat of his career! The Arkham Knight has arrived in Gotham City with an entire round table of deadly allies, and their first encounter will leave Batman shaken to his core!"
Out: April 10th

Out: April 3rd
1. The War of the Realms #1 & #2
"Asgard. Alfheim. Heven. Jotunheim. Muspelheim. Niffleheim. Nidavellir. Svartalfheim. Vanaheim. All of the Ten Realms have fallen to Malekith and his army except one: Midgard. Home to Thor's beloved humans. Home to heroes and gods alike. Now, at last, it burns. And Thor won't even be there to see it."
