Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Black Stars Above #1 (Vault Comics) – Set in 1887, the series follows a gil who flees her trapper family that’s overbearing to get lost in a dreamlike winter wilderness that harbors a cosmic threat.

Dollhouse Family #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – We’re intrigued where more of Joe Hill’s currated line of comics is going.

Fallen Angels #1 (Marvel) – The initial line-up of Dawn of X debuts and it’s an intriguing one.

Family Tree #1 (Image Comics) – The fact Jeff Lemire, Phil Hester, and Eric Gapstur is behind this should be enough. The story focused on a family’s journey to find a cure for their daughter who’s turning into a tree.

Far Sector #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – A new Green Lantern tale from Gerard Way’s imprint? We’re very intrigued.

Folklords #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Matt Kindt and Matt Smith team up for a new series which flips the fantasy/real world dynamic.

For Real #1 (Uncivilized Books) – Jack Kirby fights two battles in two ears. The first is cancer and the other is World War II.

Ginseng Roots #2 (Uncivilized Books) – Craig Thompson’s series of comics about his life picking ginseng is unique with some amazing art.

La Voz De Mayo Rambo (Image Comics) – The history of Ramon Jaurigue, an orphan and WWII veteran who co-founded the Mexican, American, Yaqui, and Others (M.A.Y.O.) organization, which successfully lobbied the Tucson City Council to improve living and working conditions for members of the Pascua Yaqui tribe.

Science Comics: Skyscrapers (First Second) – This series of graphic novels is fantastic. It both entertains and educates.
