The 5 Comics You Should Be Reading Right Now

There's never been a better time to get into reading comic books. With hit movies like Avengers: Endgame becoming huge successes in Hollywood, more and more people are looking to the source material behind these crazy popular films. However, even though stories like The Infinity Gauntlet are great, and serve as the inspiration for Marvel's films, newer comics are being put out every day that are worth checking out. Here are 5 comics that are coming out currently that are some of the best.

The Immortal Hulk


This is my personal favorite from the list. The Immortal Hulk tells surreal stories involving Bruce Banner going around and dealing with various gamma radiation related incidents. The Immortal Hulk takes elements from the entire run of The Hulk, featuring characters and references to almost everything that's ever happened in the comics. On top of this, Immortal Hulk incorporates a lot of new elements to the mythos that are genuinely interesting to learn about. The art is to die for, and the Alex Ross covers are just the icing on the cake. I really have nothing negative to say about this comic. There's 21 issues out currently so it's not a terrible backlog if you're looking to catch up.

Ice Cream Man


Ice Cream Man is an anthology series put out by Image Comics. It features a malicious supernatural creature that takes the form of an ice cream man as he tortures different people in increasingly creative ways. If that sounds insane, it's because it is, but it's also incredible. Every issue is it's own standalone story so you can really start wherever you want. The stories are full of some of the most creative ideas I've seen in years. It's a delight to read and in my mind it's the best horror comic on the market right now.

House of X, Powers of X


Look, I've never liked the X-Men. Not in the comics at least. I think their stories have the best ideas but feature the poorest execution. House of X, and it's companion series, Powers of X, may prove to be one of those moments, but for now I'm interested. Fed up with the way mankind treats them, the mutants all band together and establish an island state, demanding their own independence from the rest of mankind. This is being marketed as the 6th seminal moment for the X-Men, and for this series sake, I hope that's right.

Oblivion Song


Years ago, half of Philadelphia disappeared. The half that stayed mourned for the vanished. The half that left found themselves in another world, Oblivion. Oblivion Song is a new series by Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead. While this series isn't so much horror as it is sci-fi, I feel like Kirkman actually has been wanting to tell this story for a while, and it shows. There's so much effort and care here than has been show for the last couple of years in The Walking Dead. The characters are likeable, the creature design is creative. Honestly, I've kept current with this comic since it came out, and I would love to see a TV series adaptation of this. Scrap the third Walking Dead show they're making and give me an Oblivion Song series, it's all I ask.

Dial H for Hero


Want to see some wish fulfillment about a kid who learns how to be a hero? Like seeing throwbacks to other comic art styles like Toriyama? Like Ben 10? This is the series for you. Miguel was just a normal kid...until he found the H Dial, a magical phone that allows his to become any number of heroes he wants. It's exciting, it's funny, and it's the laid back easy to consume comic we need right now.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
