Wednesdays 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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Top Pick: Ninja-K #1 (Valiant) – I’m beyond excited for this. I’ve had this on my radar for some time, and even with the (currently unread at the time of this writing) review copy sat in my inbox I am still super excited to get the physical copy on Wednesday from my LCS.
Bloodshot Salvation #3 (Valiant) – So… see above.
Fence #1 (BOOM! Studios) – I used to be a half decent fencer, but I’m old and slow now. Still, a comic about fencing? Why not? Sometimes you don’t want to read about superheroes all the time, and this looks to be an interesting change of pace.
Top Pick: Fence #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Read it already an absolutely loved the first issue which reminded me a lot of some of the manga I’ve read that’s focused on sports. The issue is fun, relatable, with a great introduction to the characters an the world. It also sets up everything to come really well.
Bolivar (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – I’m raving about this graphic novel with its cute story and art that is jaw dropping. This is a must get and perfect holiday gift.
East of West #35 (Image Comics) – I’m all in with this series when it comes to the world and mythology and each issue has me excited to see what comes next.
Mech Cadet Yu #4 (BOOM! Studios) – This series is giant robots and kid pilots battling aliens. It’s awesome in other words and a series that’s enjoyable no matter your age. There’s a lot of layers and things to chew on along with an action packed story.
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #14 (Marvel) – My favorite Star Wars comic right now. Aphra is the best addition to the universe in a long time and it’s basically a sci-fi Indiana Jones.
