As summer continues, The Beat elite continue to stay inside and get lost in a good book! Welcome to Weekend Reading 119.
As ever, we hope that you’ll share your reading plans with us, too! Give us a shout-out, right here in the comment section or over on social media @comicsbeat!
AVERY KAPLAN: This weekend I will be reading the physical copy of the Kevin Keller Celebration Omnibus! I’ve been waiting for my copy to arrive since the Kickstarter took place last autumn and am eager to kick back with some classic Riverdale antics.
DEAN SIMONS: My 2000AD catchup continues! With mid-May’s prog 2282, I am about 7 issues away from being fully up-to-date with the British weekly anthology. Of the five serials, I am most enjoying the Dredd story An Honest Man by Ken Niemand and Tom Foster, as well as Dan Abnett/INJ Culbard’s Brink (whose intriguingly wound plot continues to enthuse as more of the mysteries and history of the world are revealed). Brink has been one of my favourite things to come from 2000AD in recent years and this latest (fifth) series continues to build on all before it.
TAIMUR DAR: The recent trailer for the upcoming Battle of the Super Sons animated movie has me incredibly excited to see Damian Wayne and Jon Kent team up in the animation medium. I’ve only read a handful of Super Sons comics so I want to rectify that before the film is released. There’s no better place to start than Superman Vol. 2 Trials of the Super Son by Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. I’ve already got a start reading this Rebirth era Superman run and I’ve been loving it. So I’ll likely continue after this Super Sons arc.
