Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.
Absolute Carnage: Scream #1/Absolute Carnage: Separation Anxiety #1 (Marvel) – Absolute Carnage was a hell of a start to Marvel’s latest event. This week is the big test to see how the miniseries tie-ins hold up and these are the first two victims… we mean comics to read.
Age of Conan: Valeria #1/Conan the Barbarian: Exodus #1 (Marvel) – Marvel has been knocking it out of the park when it comics to the revamped Conan line of comics and as usual, we want to see new additions can keep up that quality.
Once & Future #1 (BOOM! Studios) – An ancient evil is brought back by Nationalists and an ex-monster hunter and her grandson must stop it.
Omni #1 (Humanoids/H1) – A doctor acquires superpowers and finds out she’s not the only one. The H1 superhero universe gets expanded and we’re intrigued as this one seems to be one of the key series.
Powers of X #2 (Marvel) – While Hickman’s take on the X-Men universe has our team divided as to what we think, we’re all intrigued as to what comes next.
Reaver #2 (Image Comics) – It’s a fantasy Dirty Dozen and we’re good with it. Simple concept and one we can just sit back and enjoy.
Second Coming #2 (AHOY Comics) – The comic had a lot of controversy leading up to it but in the end, the first issue was entertaining with a nice sendup of current culture versus Jesus’ teachings. We’ll see where the series goes from there.
Shows End #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A young girl runs away to the freakshow to find refuge in the 1920s. Definitely different when it comes to a comic series.
Unearth #2 (Image Comics) – Solid horror and suspense that has us wanting to explore the caves it’s set in.
White Trees #1 (Image Comics) – An oversized first issue by Chip Zdarsky, Matt Wilson, and Kris Anka. Three warriors have to put aside their memories of war to find their missing children.
