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!
We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Top Pick: Secret Wars #1 (Marvel) – Possibly the biggest event ever for the company starts here. It’ll reshape the Marvel Universe and here’s hoping it exceeds my expectations, which are admittedly low. Recent big events have been let downs. I’m crossing my fingers this one is the exception.
Afterlife with Archie #8 (Archie Comics) – Each issue entertain. And I still can’t believe I’m so hooked on an Archie comic. It’s fantastic horror, and the art is as solid as the writing.
Dead Drop #1 (Valiant) – Ales Kot puts together this series of connected stories featuring a big threat to the Valiant universe.
Descender #3 (Image) – A beautiful story about an android in a futuristic world. There’s an almost fairytale feel to it all. Not too late to start reading.
Nutmeg #2 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The first issue was absolutely fantastic. Two girls must deal with the popular girl in school. Yes, the comic is that simple.
Top Pick: Secret Wars #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s big crossover kicks off here. Expect some of the ordinary and some of the new for this rebooted story.
Inhuman Annual #1 (Marvel) – The Inhumans have been picking up momentum for a while now at Marvel. The Annual should work well to help keep that momentum going.
Swords of Sorrows #1 (Dynamite) – A combination of all the female superheroes from Dynamite should be interesting, even if the story sounds a little ordinary.
Thief of Thieves #28 (Skybound/Image Comics) – Is it payback time for the eponymous thief of thieves? Cohen will return to challenge him.
The Wicked and The Divine #10 (Image Comics) – The Pantheon goes through their version of Ragnarok.
