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.

Almost American #2 (AfterShock) – Based on the true story of two Russian spies who defected to the US.

Amazing Spider-Man #75 (Marvel) – It’s a whole new era for Spider-Man as Ben Reilly suits up in what’s being dubbed “Beyond”. It’s an intriguing new direction that builds off of what has come before really well.

Arkham City: The Order of the World #1 (DC Comics) – After A-Day, numerous individuals who were in Arkham escaped. This series focuses on them and the individuals attempting to round them up.

Batman #114 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been amazing and this issue is just awesome brutal action.

By the Horns #6 (Scout Comics) – This fantasy series has been a blast to read with a nice mix of tech and magic and characters that are a lot of fun to watch what they do and how they interact. This is a series far too many are sleeping on.

Chicken Devil #1 (AfterShock) – The title alone has us smiling. The story is about a business owner who finds out his business partner owes the mob $2 million.

Dark Ages #2 (Marvel) – The miniseries has the world plunged into darkness and the heroes attempting to help rebuild society. An interesting debut that had us wanting to check out more.

DC Horror Presents: Soul Plumber #1 (DC Comics/DC Horror) – DC has been dipping into horror more and more and this second series in the line has us wanting to see if they can strike gold twice.

The Nice House on the Lake #5 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – An amazing series. An amazing issue. This is one that should be in everyone’s pullbox.

Out #1 (AWA Studios) – Allied POWs vs. Vampires in World War II.

Righteous Thirst for Vengeance #1 (Image Comics) – Rick Remender writing a new series gets us to take notice but the tease of assassin’s and the action that can bring has us excited.

Serial #7 (Abstract Studio) – This series has been growing on us with every issue and this one really starts to bring it all together.

Review: Almost American #1

The true story of two Russian agents as they defect to the United States. It’s an interesting start that doesn’t deliver tension but does deliver enough to want to read more.

Eighty Days (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – A graphic novel about a pilot who wants to just fly with freedom. But, Jay meets Felix, a thief who draws him into the struggle against the looming aviation guild.

Telepaths #1 (AWA Studios) – J. Michael Straczynski and Steve Epting are enough to get us to want to check this out where an electromagnetic disturbance awakens telepathic powers in a tenth of the Earth’s population.

Transformers: King Grimlock #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue was an interesting one putting Grimlock on a different world where he’ll have to decide if he’ll be a hero or just his usual pain in the butt.

Undiscovered Country #15 (Image Comics) – The series has been a wild ride with every arc. You never know where it’s going or what the creators are going to come up with making this a comic series that keeps its readers on their toes.

Almost American is a real-life story of real-life spies

ALMOST AMERICAN #1

Writer: Ron Marz
Artist: Marco Castiello
Colorist: Flavio Dispenza
Letterer: Rus Wooton
Cover: Rus Wooton
Incentive Cover: Juan Doe
$4.99 / 32 pages / Color / 09.01.21

Spies…like us? In 2008, husband-and-wife Russian intelligence operatives walked into the U.S. Embassy in the Dominican Republic in order to defect, making a deal to trade secrets for new lives. But instead of the American Dream, Janosh and Victorya Neumann found themselves caught up in red tape, bureaucracy and turf wars between the FBI and CIA — all while their past tries to kill them.

Based on the real-life story of real-life spies, ALMOST AMERICAN is written by comics master Ron Marz in close consultation with the Neumanns, with art by rising star Marco Castiello.
