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.
A King’s Vengeance #1 (Scout Comics) – A warrior is brought back to life to avenge himself on the demons responsible for his death. That cover just looks so damn cool.
Avengers Forever #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is going all in with its multiverse as Avengers from across it are gathered to take on a massive threat.
Batman: One Dark Knight #1 (DC Comics) – Batman must escort a prisoner from Arkham to Blackgate as gangs descend on him during a blackout. The concept has been done before but this is a pretty solid and entertaining execution.
Black Panther #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic delivering espionage and intrigue, some politics, and action all grounding the series and character a bit.
Chicken Devil #3 (AfterShock) – The series feels like a throwback to 80s action flicks and we’re enjoying the over-the-top violence and humor.
Deserter: Junji Ito Story Collection (VIZ Media) – Junji Ito. Nuff said.
Fist of the North Star Vol. 3 (VIZ Media) – Collecting the classic series in beautiful hardback. If you’ve never read it, here’s your chance!

Impossible Jones #2 (Scout Comics) – The first issue was so much fun delivering a new entertaining superhero world that was a mix of homage, sendup, and its own thing. We’re excited to finally be able to read the second issue.
King Conan #1 (Marvel) – Conan grows weary in his old age and heads off on one last adventure.
Menopause: A Comic Treatment (Graphic Mundi) – Short stories about menopause in this graphic medicine anthology.
Nightwing #87 (DC Comics) – The series goes experimental with art that’s just one giant continuous image.

Search for Hu #4 (AfterShock) – The series has been just solid mob action as two warring families/factions go after each other and a son attempts to figure out who attempted to kill his parents.
Serial #9 (Abstract Studio) – This series has been an amazing build with every issue and the last one left us shocked. Horror, serial killers, so much tension!
