Wednesdays (and 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.
Apache Delivery Service #2 (Dark Horse Comics) – Any comic by Matt Kindt, Tyler Jenkins, and Hilary Jenkins is likely getting on this list. The first issue being interesting doesn’t hurt either.
Batgirls #3 (DC Comics) – The series has been a lot of fun with a solid mix of story and pop art to go along with it. There’s a kinetic energy about it all that has us hooked.
Bylines in Blood #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue was solid focusing on a murder a detective needs to solve while exploring the failure of the systems meant to protect and lead us.
Cult of Ikarus #1 (Scout Comics) – Hunter wants to find out who she is but after vampire assassins come for her, she’s on the run from the deadly Cult of Ikarus.
Devil’s Reign #4 (Marvel) – The event has been fantastic so for and this issue is full of action and some solid emotional and tragic moments.
Hecates Will #2 (Black Mask Studios) – Hecate tenaciously continues her mission of scattering graffiti stencil puzzle pieces through the streets of Manhattan. It’s a very different and intriguing series so far.
Hellboy & the BPRD 1957: Forgotten Lives (Dark Horse Comics) – It’s a Hellboy one-shot. These are always entertaining in some way and well worth getting if you want some action horror to read.
Land of the Living Gods #1 (AfterShock) – The end is here! The spirits of the first people have returned to witness the last days of humanity. Enter a world of wonder and cruelty, beauty and perseverance.
Life Zero #1 (Ablaze) – A new sci-fi, action, horror series with art by Marcho Checchetto.
Secret X-Men #1 (Marvel) – We’re suckers for the “B team” type of X-Men teams where it’s a mix of characters who usually don’t get the spotlight or respect.
Suicide Squad: Blaze #1 (DC Comics) – A slight twist on the usual formula with some of the regular members having to manage new recruits who are part of a secret government procedure called Blaze!
