Jim Zub of the Toronto Zubs sayeth:

Daredevil, by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee, Marvel. Everything’s in continuity but it never feels weighed down by its legacy or too dense for new readers to come aboard. It’s quite possibly the perfect superhero comic.


Chew, by John Layman and Rob Guillory, Image. Food-based super powers, crime, kookiness and conspiracies. It’s ridiculous and sarcastic with a nasty dark streak right down the middle. What’s not to love?


The Sixth Gun, by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt, Oni Press. A sprawling fantasy tale beneath the trappings of the old west. I’m enjoying the ride.

Mind MGMT, by Matt Kindt, Dark Horse. It starts off slow and then, before you know it, you’re pulled in by the characters and multi-layered mystery.

Other series I’m quite enjoying at the moment: All-New X-Men, Archer and Armstrong, Batman, Deadpool, Deathmatch, Empowered, Hawkeye, Invincible, Saga, Swamp Thing, Superior Spider-Man, Thor: God of Thunder, Young Avengers.

Jim Zub is writer of Image’s “Skullkickers” — and a bazillion other things. Check out his neato website: http://www.jimzub.com/
