Each week, new issues from Marvel comics, DC comics, Image comics, and the latest from Image, Dark Horse, Boom Studios, Drawn & Quarterly and other indie publishers change the course of entire universes. Keeping up on the drama can be a challenge, unless you’re a regular at the comic book store and have a knack for remembering esoteric fictional details. (It’s a living!) For everyone else — and maybe even for the regular comic reader, who can only handle so much in a given week — there’s Polygon’s Monday Funnies.
What’s happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you.
Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor found notable this past week is part society pages of superhero lives, part reading recommendations, part “look at this cool art.” It’s the latest on Batman, Spider-Man, the X-Men, Wonder Woman, Iron Man, the Justice League, the Avengers, and every other protagonist under the sun — not to mention the indie comics out there you might have missed. There may be some spoilers. There may not be enough context (or rather, just enough context). There will be great comics.
Each Monday, we add a new round-up to the top of the stack. Check in for regular updates, or sift through the backlog below for books worthy of your attention.
