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.
007 #5 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The series has been fantastic for Bond fans.
Action Comics #1050 (DC Comics) – With Dark Crisis over, what’s next for the DC Universe? A key part of that is here!
Book of Slaughter #1 (BOOM! Studios) – For those that enjoy Something is Killing the Children and House of Slaughter, this sounds like an important issue teasing what’s to come.

But can they escape before this prison’s supernatural secret consumes them all? A story about divisive politics and family separation.
Fist of the North Star Vol. 7 (VIZ Media) – Each volume has been amazing and if you’ve never had a chance to read the series, these hardback editions are well worth getting.
The Librarian of Auschwitz (Henry Holt) – A graphic novel adaptation of The Librarian of Auschwitz, inspired by the true story of Holocaust survivor Dita Kraus. This graphic novel tells the incredible story of a girl who risked her life to keep the magic of books alive during the Holocaust.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The two teams are back together again! The first meeting was a lot of fun and we’re expecting more of the same.

Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue took us into a world with two survivors of an apocalyptic world. The issue oozed detail but it was the interaction of the two that has us coming back for more.
Plush #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was over the top weird involving crooked cops and cannibal furries. Let’s hope the second delivers more of the same.
Red Winter: Fallout #1 (Scout Comics) – Joseph is on his own, desperate to find a way out of a city that seems hellbent on killing him.
Saga of a Doomed Universe #2 (CEX Publishing) – t’s 1984, and Earth’s greatest hero, Masked Champion, finds himself powerless against this impending apocalypse. The first issue was a nice homage to classic comics mixed with an intriguing meta aspect involving the creator of the comic.
Timeless 2022 #1 (Marvel) – Marvel has been releasing these issues focused on Kang and teasing what’s to come. If you want hints at what 2023 brings, this is the comic to get.
Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons #3 (DC Comics) – The first two issues have been amazing with a wonderful story and art that’s breathtaking. It’s been a while but hopefully the wait is worth it.
