Welcome once again to THE 10 SPOT – TMStash’s round-up of the very best in Indie comics each week. This week brings us two HUGE shocking storylines in HARBINGER RENEGADE #5 from Valiant, and KILL OR BE KILLED #5 from Image! Let’s get started with…
HARBINGER RENEGADE #5 (Valiant) – RAFER ROBERTS, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE!? Roberts promised us a shocking surprise during his interview with us at HeroesCon 2017, and WOW did he deliver! This arc is called “Massacre”…and even that doesn’t do this story justice! This is one of the hardest hitting stories I’ve read in over 50 year of being a comics fan…buckle up before reading this one! The artwork drives this home exceptionally well, thanks to Darick Robertson (pencils), Richard Clark (inks), and Diego Rodriguez (colors). THIS is “must-read” material! 10/10
KILL OR BE KILLED #10 (Image) – This has been one of the most enjoyable and thrilling series of 2017, and in issue #10 Ed Brubaker, Sean Phillips and Elizabeth Breitweiser turn the entire story on its ear! You will not know who to trust or what to think by the end of this one. Just when we’ve come to expect what will happen next, just when any other comic would have settled into a formula, KILL OR BE KILLED chooses to take a big risk and pulls it off wonderfully. 10/10
That’s it for this week’s 10 SPOT – but we aren’t done yet with our round-up of great indie books! Be sure to look for PRESSED TO THE 9’s and THE GREAT 8’s for more reviews of amazing indie comics!
