Gaumer’s Top New Ongoing Comics of 2014

We continue our review of the year that was 2014, and I wanted to cap off my series of articles covering the awesome of 2014 by highlighting this year’s comics that will persist into 2015 and beyond. Ongoing comics are one of my favorite aspects of the medium because they are there each and every month, provide an opportunity to tell elaborate stories with epic scope, and there’s nothing quite like a 50 issue investment paying off in spades. But, being a comic Nowist (coined term; trademark pending) I’m all about the new comics, and the freshness and excitement that comes along with them. Here’s my top new ongoing comic books of 2014.

Gaumer’s Top 5 Comic Book Single Issues of 2014

The End Draws Nigh…the end of 2014, that is. And what a great year is was for comics! The Outright Geekery crew is running down the year that was 2014 with a series of articles spotlighting the highs and lows that marked the twelvemonth, and I’d be lacking in my duties if I didn’t chime in with my own list of top comics. There’s a lot of way I could have gone with this; Best Titles, Best Arcs, Even a list of Best Characters and the issues that made them that way; but I decided to highlight my favorite single issues of the year, and it was no small task. There were so many great issues this year that it was difficult to whittle it down to just 5…so I picked 6.

Review: Birthright #2

Birthright #2 CoverI have to admit that I was late (but only by a month) to the Comic Book Party that is Joshua Williamson’s brilliantly paced Birthright #1, a jaw-dropping childhood fantasy with more twists and turns than a dragon’s small intestine. While ish #1 was a perfect introduction to a book dealing with some pretty high concepts, issue #2 settles things down quite a bit, narrowing the focus on our hero’s journey, both before his Earthly return and after. While the shock factor of Birthright‘s first installment was missing in this ish, gaining some insight into the main character’s background, both past and present, was certainly necessary. The change in narrative, however, left plenty of room for some fantasy action, solidifying Birthright as a must-read fantasy adventure comic. Continue reading Review: Birthright #2
