Comics Comics Quarterly #1 (SBI Press) – An amazing group of comics… write comics!

Blackbird #1 2nd Printing (Image Comics) – Who doesn’t love a good new-noir with a supernatural twist and a female lead? They’re reprinting the first issue with the premiere of the 2nd, so if it’s as fun as it sounds , you can get all caught up.

Border Town #3 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – It’s a bit of Scooby-Doo and Buffy, set in a world we can relate to and featuring characters and monsters we rarely see. So far, it’s bringing Vertigo back to the excellence you expect from the imprint.

Death of the Inhumans #5 (Marvel) – How will this one end? We have no idea but this event that we initially rolled our eyes about has been amazing and exceeded expectations in every way.

Doctor Who: The 13th Doctor #1 (Titan Comics) – If it’s half as good as the latest series, then we’re all in.

The Empty Man #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Cullen Bunn’s horror series returns. Bunn is a master at horror and this one mixes the cold reality of an X-Files/FBI vibe with slasher-ish horror. It’s also being worked on as a film, so grab this and say you were cool before the film.

The Green Lantern #1 (DC Comics) – Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp take on the classic character bringing it back to its “police” roots.

Harley Quinn #53 (DC Comics) – Harley and Tiny Tina on a road trip, sounds like a fun ride for some light reading on this long weekend.

James Bond 007 #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Greg Pak writing James Bond? Yeah, we’re sold on that alone.

No Angel TP (Black Mask Studio) – Collecting issues 1-4, it’s a great series and now you can get in on the ground floor.

Outer Darkness #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from John Layman and Afu Chan is a mix of sci-fi and horror that’s focused on mankind colonizing the galaxy and discovering all sorts of horrors.

Spider-Geddon #3 (Marvel) – The event has been fantastic so far with each issue delivering pure action and excitement and just delivering on the multiverse of possibilities. We’re expecting more of the same (which is good).

Suicide Squad Black Files #1 (DC Comics) – A new arc “Revenge of Konrad” is kicking off this week!

Transformers: Lost Light #25 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers line is wrapping up with an unknown future and this issue is this series’ finale. We loved the off the wall stories and we’re expecting a bit more heart and emotion than you’d expect from robots who change into things.

Wet Hot American Summer (BOOM! Studios) – The cult classic film comes to comics in this original graphic novel. We have no idea what to expect but we’re intrigued in how the humor of the film (and Netflix series) translates to the printed page.

The Wicked + The Divine Funnies #1 (Image Comics) – A cute little one shot from the W+D team for a bit of fun before our beloved series comes to an end.

The Wrong Earth #3 (AHOY Comics) – AHOY Comics has been knocking it out of the park with comics that teach us to expect more. This superhero focused series has two heroes from different Earths swap places. To see the two styles, in both attitude and art, is an impressive accomplishment that makes this comic of the year material.

X-23 #6 (Marvel) – A fun back to school undercover mission with the baddest member of the X-Men.

Joe

Top Pick: Gideon Falls Volume 1 (Image Comics) – Lemire and Sorrentino is a match made in comic heaven, and this is a series that doesn’t disappoint. It’s creepy, dark, and it’s perfect for Halloween!

Black Badge #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins resume their awesome work from Grass Kings, and now tell the tale of North Korea, Boy Scouts, and Spies. It’s wild, and one of the most original and fun books I’ve read in awhile.

Runaways #14 (Marvel Comics) – Consistently one of Marvel’s best books every single month. Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka give such a touching and fun book, and something different from the usual superhero books.

Venom Annual #1 (Marvel Comics) – I usually don’t love annuals, and their $4.99 price tag, but this has Cates still on the book, and will serve as a great jumping on point for one of Marvel’s best.

Justice League #10 (DC Comics) – Scott Snyder and Francis Manupul is another great pair for comics this week. The series has had its pedal to the medal like usual Snyder stories and I don’t expect it to let up. This will also start the ”Drowned Earth” storyline that will be Aquaman focused, and that cover art alone has me hyped.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Shuri #1 (Marvel) – She was the break out star of Black Panther and Marvel recognizing that is giving her her own series. With T’Challa missing, she must choose between herself and her country. Can’t wait to see another perspective of Wakanda.

Archie 1941 #2 (Archie Comics) – What if Archie took place in the lead up to World War II? The first issue was really good with a good mix of history and we’re expecting more of that with this one.

Captain Ginger #1 (AHOY Comics) – AHOY has been damn near perfect with their three releases so far and we’re expecting no less from this one.

East of West #39 (Image Comics) – This weird west apocalyptic story has delivered with every issue and this far in, we want to see where it goes.

Low Road West #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue started off as a apocalyptic type story and then veered into fantasy. We’re intrigued. We’re very intrigued.

Superman Isn’t Jewish (But I Am Kinda) (Life Drawn/Humanoids) – An interesting exploration of Jewish identity in modern times.

Transformers: Optimus Prime #24 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s current run on Transformers is winding down with everything coming together and we’re glued to the pages of every release.

The Unstoppable Wasp #1 (Marvel) – Writer Jeremy Whitley is back and so is Nadia! The first volume was beyond fantastic with a mix of fun, action, science, and girl power! We’re expecting no less and are so excited.
