Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up. And this is a week that this list could easily be double the size.
Pick of the Week: Memetic #1 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! teased us the hypno-sloth, and this week the world gets to see what it’s finally about. Writer James Tynion IV has been rocking it with The Woods, and we can’t wait to see what he does next.
Arkham Manor #1 (DC Comics) – DC Comics has shaken things up with two recent out-of-the-box releases in the revamped Batgirl and Gotham Academy. Can they go 3 for 3 with this one?
Avengers #37 (Marvel) – The jump ahead in time has been fascinating, and there feels like something big is coming. This has been teased for quite some time, and we finally are seeing the master plan pay off for Marvel’s Avengers line of comics.
The Delinquents #3 (Valiant) – Take Archer & Armstrong and have them team up with Quantum & Woody. The result is a hilarious comic that’s beyond fun and entertaining.
Dungeons & Dragons: Legends of Baldurs Gate #1 (IDW Publishing) – Jim Zub tackles a refreshed Dungeons & Dragons. There brand is back and more popular than ever. Looking forward to seeing what Zub does, especially since he’s shown off his fantasy talents with similar titles Skullkickers and Pathfinder.
Letter 44 #11 (Oni Press) – Writer Charles Soule continues to brilliantly mix politics and science fiction. Every issue is fantastic, both entertaining and thought provoking.
Southern Dog #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – It seems like forever since we read the first issue of this series, and we finally get a chance to read the second. Mix werewolves with the South, and you get an interesting story!
Stumptown Vol. 3 #2 (Oni Press) – We love noir/detective stories, and Greg Rucka‘s Stumptown has never disappointed.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/Ghostbusters #1 (IDW Publishing) – Two of our favorite things to come out of the 80s come together!
The Walking Dead #133 (Skybound) – The end of last issue…. nuff said.
