comiXology Summer Reading List Day 14: Insufferable #1

The creative team behind IRREDEEMABLE brings you a new tale of dark peril, high adventure, and a superhero family torn apart! Once, Nocturnus and Galahad were St. Barrington’s premier super-team—but after an acrimonious split, one has become an elusive spirit, the other an egotistical blowhard—and the only thing they both hate more than crime is each another! What act by which terrible villain could possibly reunite them…? Join Eisner-award winning writer Mark Waid (Daredevil, Kingdom Come) and artist Peter Krause to find out!

A comiXologist Recommends:
Michael Crowe recommends Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult #1

Doctor Spektor: Master of the Occult #1 from Dynamite Entertainment is the latest in it’s revival of classic Gold Key heroes. The original series ran 24 issues pitting our hero against such classic horror baddies as vampires and mummies; he even found himself transformed into a werewolf for a short time. Sadly the Doctor was last seen in print in 1977. But, with some help from writer Mark Waid and artist Neil Edwards, Adam Spektor seems to have stolen a page from the book of the dead and risen; born anew for the 21st century.

In this modern incarnation Adam once again battles the forces of darkness, but no longer behind closed doors. Instead he clashes with them for the entertainment of millions. On screen, the cocky and charismatic star stuns audiences with ever more daring defeats of monsters around the world. Off screen personal demons threaten to swallow him up, if not for the vigilance of his manager Lenny and his personal assistant Abby Horne. Adam is going to need all the help he can get as new revelations tear his life apart and drag him further down the rabbit hole. Things are about to get very real for Americas favorite reality star, can he actually be the hero television has made him?

Be sure to check out this and the rest of Dynamites Gold Key Universe heroes including Solar: Man of the Atom, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, and Magnus: Robot Fighter.
