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.
American Comics: A History (WW Norton) – Professor Jeremy Dauber takes readers through the history of American comics starting with the Civil War through modern times. It’s 150 years of history.
Black Panther #1 (Marvel) – John Ridley takes over Black Panther and we’re beyond excited.
DC vs. Vampires #2 (DC Comics) – It’s the latest apocalyptic spin with DC superheroes and the first issue was a solid build up with a really good unexpected twist.
Deathstroke Inc. #3 (DC Comics) – The series has been a solid take on the character without him going the “hero” route. He’s the asshole we love to see what he does next.
Harbinger #2 (Valiant) – The first issue was a solid debut that worked well for long-time fans of the characters and a jumping on point for new readers.
Hawkeye: Kate Bishop #1 (Marvel) – With a high-profile debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kate Bishop is getting a new series that should be perfect for new readers.
The History of Science Fiction Vol. 1 (Humanoids) – What will be covered and what will be left out? We want to see what gets the spotlight in this graphic novel that covers the genre from the 1800s to present day.
House of Slaughter #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Something is Killing the Children has been a hit and we’re watching this spin-off series to see if it can repeat the magic.
Hulk #1 (Marvel) – After an epic run, where do things go? We’ll find out soon!
Joy Operations #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Brian Michael Bendis brings his talent to Dark Horse with a new creator-owned series through his Jinxworld imprint.
Serial #8 (Abstract Studio) – The series has been growing on us as Zoe has been getting closer and closer to figuring out what’s going on with the serial killer Jenny and we learn more about Jenny’ motivations.
Task Force Z #2 (DC Comics) – The concept shouldn’t work but the first issue proved it can! Red Hood leads a team of revived “zombie” villains.
