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.
Action Comics #1053 (DC Comics) – The series has been fantastic so far making Superman really feel like a “family” of heroes.
The Ambassadors #1 (Image Comics) – Mark Millar’s newest series with Frank Quitely. The concept sounds interesting where people explain why they should be one of six people in the world to get powers. Part of the bigger picture for Millarworld and the upcoming event, we’re intrigued.
American Born Chinese (First Second) – If you haven’t had a chance to read this modern classic by Gene Luen Yang, here’s your chance before the new Disney+ series.
Bulls of Beacon Hill #3 (AfterShock) – The series has been solid so far and we’re intrigued to see how Christopher Boldt will deal with the attack on him by his father.
Don’t Spit in the Wind #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A cleaning crew member goes missing near an old nuclear facility.
Dungeons & Dragons Saturday Morning Adventures #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s “Saturday Morning” comics have been fantastic capturing the fun of the original animated series.
Fist of the North Star Vol. 8 (VIZ Media) – Kenshiro takes on the Holy Emperor Souther, the most powerful of the Six Holy Fists of the South Star. Hell yes!
Heavy Bright (Fantagraphics) – A queer young woman aims to dispel the greed and cruel masculine energy that has consumed the world.
Local Man #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue about a washout superhero was fantastic and we’re excited for what’s next in this series that’s an homage, spoof, and celebration of Image’s superheroes.
Unstoppable Doom Patrol #1 (DC Comics) – The next steps for the team was hinted at in Lazarus Planet and this series seems like it’ll deal with the aftermath of that event.
Waller vs. Wildstorm #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – We’re so pumped to see national security expert Spencer Ackerman take on writing Waller!
