I had a very busy year and I’m trying to catch up on my reading. What would you recommend I start with ?

It seems like all of my favorite stuff in 2018 was written by Tom King or Donnie Cates.  Mister Miracle.  Thanos.  Venom

Batman: Dark Prince Charming (these came out only as Hardcovers) was a great read with neat artwork. 

Mister Miracle had its ups a downs and didn’t end very strong for me...

Detective Comics Rebirth comes to mind as well, I’ve been buying the deluxe hardcovers. Awesome bat family book. The Tom King Batman romance book got old pretty fast for me :eyeroll:

Ice Cream Man from Image does well at being creepy.

I’m a big fan of both. I kept up with Venom and Thanos this year. I’m going to try mister Miracle out. Heard many people say it’s worth reading. 👍

Hadn’t heard of the Prince Charming books but very interested. I’m trying the Mister Miracle. 

I did read some Batman last year but not Detective. I’ll give it a try. 👍

Black Hammer has been amazing! The first part of Age of Doom was definitely my most recommended series this year.

Gideon Falls has been pretty great too.

Black Hammer is one of my favorite books. I’ll try out Age of Doom.

What is Gideon Falls about ?

It follows a priest who is kind of washed up who gets assigned a new church in the town of Gideon Falls and a guy who lives in the city and thinks there is a conspiracy in the town's trash. The story follows the two of them separately as they encounter the legendary "Black Barn."

It's definitely a horror book. I think in an interview Lemire said that is was inspired by Twin Peaks. I know I did kind of a bad job of describing the book, but I didn't want to give too much away in case you end up reading it.

For me, this book was seriously underrated and undervalued.

Looks very cool and you and I seem to have very similar comic likes. I’ll give it a shot 👍
