Happy Hour #1 (AHOY Comics) – It’s a future America where everyone has to be happy… it’s the law. The concept is intriguing and unique. We’ve read the first issue and it definitely stands out as something different from everything else on the shelf.
La Diabla #1 (Albatross Funnybooks) – It’s Eric Powell… that alone has us wanting to check this out. Who’s La Diabla? She’s a “fuel injected Latina suicide machine sent to strike down the unroadworthy!” Yeah… sold.

Red Atlantis #1 (AfterShock) – It’s election day and violence has popped up in various locations across the United States. What’s behind this mystery? Is it the Russians!? The first issue has a very X-Files vibe about it.

Sweet Tooth: The Return #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Jeff Lemire’s beloved series is back with a whole new volume! It’s a fresh start for new readers and of course long time fans can dive in and return to the characters they love.
Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush #1 (DC Comics) – These “what if” stories have been great so far and in this one, Bruce goes to live with his friend Tommy Elliot instead of being taken care of by Alfred.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Jennika II #1 (IDW Publishing) – Jennika has been a hit character and the breakout character is getting a second miniseries. The first was a solid read and we’re expecting much of the same for this.
U.S.Agent #1 (Marvel) – Christopher Priest is writing with Georges Jeanty art in this miniseries that has John Walker now operating as an independent contractor. Priest writing this makes it a must-read and buy for us.
Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story (DC Comics) – A new graphic novel about a young Victor Fries meeting Nora Kumar. It’s a tragic tale about living life to the fullest and what it truly means to love…and to let go. These graphic novels from DC have been amazing so far and this one has us really excited to read it.
The Walking Dead Deluxe #2 (Image Comics/Skybound) – The Walking Dead is back and now in color with extras but it’s reading this series in the age of COVID that’s the most intriguing thing about it right now.
Wolverine: Black, White, & Red #1 (Marvel) – We’ve read the first issue of this anthology and it’s a fantastic start. It’s definitely mature and full of action but each story is a top-notch read. Well worth picking up and a solid comic you can just read and enjoy and not have to read anything else. Check out our review.
