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.
A.X.E.: Judgement Day Omega #1 (Marvel) – The event has been one of the best Marvel has done in a while and we want to see what the new status quo is and what this issue lays out for the various folks involved.
Billionaire Island: Cult of Dogs #1 (AHOY Comics) – Mark Russell is back with more satire and when he’s skewering society, it’s well worth checking it. Russell consistently will make you think as well as laugh.
Dark Ride #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue delivered an intriguing start to the new horror series and we want to see where it all goes from there.
Death of Superman 30th Anniversary Special #1 (DC Comics) – The original creators behind the event are back with new stories celebrating 30 years.
Do a Powerbomb #6 (Image Comics) – Wrestling. Drama. Horror. Yeah, this has everything checked off for us. Did we mention the awesome art? This is a series that stands out this year.
Fantastic Four #1 (Marvel) – Ryan North and Iban Coello set Marvel’s first family in a new direction, a perfect time to dive in for what should be a good creative combo.
Gospel #1 (Image Comics) – Inspired by Miyazaki and set in the chaos of King Henry VIII’s reign, that alone has us intrigued about this one.
Killchella #1 (Scout Comics) – A music festival turns deadly when a reclusive pop star returns after five years and attempts a massive human sacrifice ritual.
Lord of the Jungle #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Dan Jurgens writing Tarzan? Yeah, we’re in for that.
New Golden Age (DC Comics) – Geoff Johns’ next chapter of his vision kicks off here bringing back classic DC characters that haven’t had the spotlight for some time.
The Nice House on the Lake #11 (DC Comics) – The horror sci-fi series has been amazing with with one more issue to go, we’re glued to every issue to find out what the hell is going on.
Sabretooth and the Exiles #1 (Marvel) – Sabretooth has had it rough with Krakoa so what plans there are for him in the “X Universe” should be interesting.
Skullkickers Super Special #1 (Image Comics) – Celebrating 12 years of Skullkickers, we’re always down for this series. It was WAY ahead of its time with off the rails fantasy adventure.
Soldier Stories (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – Four tales of conflict written by veterans.
Specs #1 (BOOM! Studios) – We get a They Live vibe from this when some teens get a pair of X-ray specs and things turn dark and more than they bargained for.
WildC.A.T.s #1 (DC Comics) – The team is back with a new take that has them more built into the DC Universe. It feels like the start of something big to come and hopefully indicates we’ll get to see more of the Wildstorm Universe return.
