The Magicians: Alice’s Story (BOOM! Studios) – The popular series comes to comics.
Naomi #6 (DC Comics) – The end of the “first season” of the series and if you’ve missed it, you’re missing one of the best superhero comics out there. It’s nailed the set-up and delivered on reveals. Naomi is a breakout star in the making. Don’t miss out on this entire series. Amazing writing and even better art.
Reaver #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Justin Jordan and Rebekah Isaacs, that creative team alone has us excited. Six horrible individuals are assembled to help stop the end of the new world. It sounds like the Dirty Dozen (in half) but this creative combo has us excited to see the insanity is coming.

Unearth #1 (Image Comics) – Cullen Bunn, Kyle Strahm, and Baldemar Rivas’ new series that seems to mix horror and science for a subterranean nightmare. Bunn is a master of horror and a new series from him in that genre is one to always check out.
