Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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
Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.
Batman ’89 #2 (DC Comics) – It’s been fun going back to the “film universe” of Batman and we want to see where it goes, especially with what has been hinted at.
Batman: The World (DC Comics) – Batman stories from creative teams from around the world in a new anthology.
Black Widow #11 (Marvel) – This series has delivered with every issue. It mixes great action, with real emotion, and the sexiness this sort of “spy” story can deliver. It’s just perfect entertainment.
Campisi #2 (AfterShock) – The mob vs. dragon. That’s all you really need to know about this one.
Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 (Marvel) – The Eternals have been shaken up in their own series delivering a story that makes them “A” level in the Marvel Universe. What this spin-off brings to the table has us intrigued.
Hellboy & the BPRD 1957 Family Ties (Dark Horse) – Hellboy is always fun. This one-shot focuses on an unwanted house guest that Hellboy and BPRD agent Susan Xiang need to take care of.
I Am Batman #1 (DC Comics) – John Ridley has been delivering an interesting take on the next Batman with a story that features a lot of emotion and depth.
Kang the Conqueror #2 (Marvel) – The first issue did a solid job of streamlining the character’s convoluted history. We’re excited to see where this second issue goes as a young Kang begins to confront his different versions in a twisted version of “this is your life”.
MAW #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What happens when one woman becomes the real monster society has always made her out to be? That alone has us intrigued to read this one.
Nobody’s Child #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Albino rhinos have a genetic code that holds the properties to regenerate man. This leads to their near extinction. This is the story of a boy who decides to dedicate his life to protecting this rhino.
Primordial #1 (Image Comics) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino launch this new series about some of the animal test subjects during the early years of the space program. The animals never came back… they were taken and all of these years later, they’re coming home.
Stray Dogs (Image Comics) – If you missed this series as individual issues, you need to get the trade. It’s a murder mystery from the perspective of the dogs that might have witnessed it. Amazing art and full of tension.
Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story (DC Comics) – A new take on Jessica Cruz’s origin story. We’re fans of the character and interested in seeing what new ideas can be done with her.
Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a good introduction to this faction and the world delivering solid art and action. Individuals who enjoy a straightforward “space marine kills alien” type story should check this out.
X-Men: Trial of Magneto #2 (Marvel) – The debut was full of emotion as the attempt to figure out who killed the Scarlet Witch began. But, we’re expecting a lot of twists and turns before this one is over.
