– by Michael Connally

I would like to take the great pleasure introducing a new branch of Latino Review.  I will be spear heading a new comic book section to the website and my number one goal is to give you breaking information in the comic book world.  We will be bringing you preview articles, review of new comics, review of classic comics, discovering new independent comics, and much more.  This article is a reflection of the top three comics from the Big 3 Publishers.  Sound off in the comment section if you think there is a comic worthy of the list

Top 3 From DC

1. Batman Arkham Knight Genesis #2

Price: $2.99

Art: Alison Borgey

Cover: Stjepan Sejic

Writer: Peter J. Tomasi

- If you are a fan of the game like me then you will love this comic.  This story continues on the journey of how Jason Todd became the Arkham Knight and the events leading up to where the game starts.  After reading the first issue the direction of the story shows you the build of hatred Jason has towards Bruce plus the training to become Robin.

Doctor Fate 4.jpg

2. Doctor Fate #4

            Price: $2.99

            Art: Sonny Liew

            Cover: Sonny Liew

            Writer: Paul Levitz

One of the stronger stories to come out recently by DC Comics.  Watching the struggles that Kent Nassor, a medical student, has becoming the new Dr. Fate.  What I love about this story so far is this is a true origin story where a regular person must figure how to be hero without an instruction manual or another superhero mentoring Kent.

3. Superman/Wonder Woman #21

            Price: $3.99

            Art: Jamie Mendoza, Doug Mahnke

            Cover: Paulo Sigueira

            Variant: Joseph A. Quinones Jr.

            Writer: Peter J. Tomasi

Whenever we have Superman and Wonder Woman team up it always seems to be Superman as the alpha in the group but now roles have reversed.  With Supermans identity outed and weakened powers it is now up to Diana to lead the power couple.  Within the last couple of issues we have seen Superman struggle to be in this new position.  It will be interesting to see how Diana and Clark continue this relationship.

Top 3 from Marvel

1. Captain America: White #1

            Price: $4.99

            Art: Tim Sale

            Cover: Tim Sale

            Writer: Jeph Loeb

To put this comic at the top of your list all you have to do is look at the combo of Tim Sale and Jeph Loeb.  The two together have won the Eisner Award.  Put that together along with the partnership of Captain America and Bucky Barnes how can you go wrong.  This comic sets up the stage for reliving some of Cap’s greatest stories from World War II

2. Spider-Verse #5

            Price: $3.99

            Art: Andre Araujo

            Cover: Andre Araujo

            Writer: Mike Costa

The phenomenon of Spider-Gwen continues in this new story putting the Spider-men up against Mayor Norman Osborne.  This story shows us Spider-Gwen as the leader.  This will be Spider-Gwen’s most difficult match of her short career so far.

3. Star Wars #9

            Price $3.99

            Art: Stuart Immonen

            Cover: Stuart Immonen

            Writer: Jason Aaron

Three words: Luke, Han, Leia. Enough said.  With Episode 7 coming out in December and the Star Wars timeline reset, every new story is important to keep up with every issue.  Keeping up with the original characters along with introducing new characters it is valuable to keep up with every issue.

Top 3 from Image

1. Invincible #123

            Price $2.99

            Art: Cory Walker

            Cover: Cory Walker

            Writer: Robert Kirkman

If you haven’t read an issue of Invincible then you are missing out.  From the creative mind that brought you “The Walking Dead” takes a totally different approach to a superhero’s life.  The story of Invincible chronicles the life of Mark Grayson who is a superhero and so is his father. Mark must balance his superhero life and family life.  We were last left off with Mark having to adjust of a new peaceful life but something tells me this won’t last long.

2. Manifest Destiny #17

            Price: $2.99

            Art: Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni

            Cover: Matthew Roberts and Owen Gieni

            Writer: Chris Dingess

If you are into American History with a comic spin to it then this comic is for you.  Manifest Destiny follows Lewis and Clark through their expeditions out west meeting mythical creatures and gives a whole new meaning to the Wild West.  The last issue left us with Lewis and Clark meeting a new enemy “Vameter”.

3. The Beauty #2

            Price $3.99

            Art: Jeremy Ham

            Cover: Jeremy Ham

            Written Jeremy Ham and Jason Hurley

Jeremy Ham takes a great spin on a major social issue in today’s world.  With a majority of people striving to look beautiful everyday with plastic surgery, make-up, and diet plans Jeremy offers a solution with a cost.  What if there was a way for you to become beautiful and all you had to do was take a drug.  In “The Beauty” Detective Foster and Vaughn are looking deeper into this new craze and finding out that beauty can kill you.
