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.
Briar #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What if Sleeping Beauty never got her happily ever after… and instead had to save herself? A concept we’ve seen before but we’re still very excited for this one.
DC Horror Presents: Sgt. Rock vs. the Army of the Dead #1 (DC Comics) – Bruce Campbell writing has us interested in this one.
DC vs. Vampires #9 (DC Comics) – The series has been fantastic keeping readers on their toes as you never know who will die and who will actually be a vampire.
The Disciple (CEX Publishing) – Estranged former students must band together, to recover the secrets their teacher shared – and uncover the ones he kept hidden.
Eight Billion Genies #5 (Image Comics) – The series has been amazing with a world changing concept but a narrow focus that keeps the crazy concept grounded. We want so much more of this world.
Fist of the North Star Vol. 6 (VIZ Media) – We love this new printing of this series, a classic manga that’s a must read.
Flawed #1 (Image Comics) – By day she’s a psychiatrist, by night she solves problems with a more direct approach. But, an immortal serial killer has her in their sights.
Hollow (BOOM! Studios) – A new take on the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. A Free Comic Book Day teaser comic was solid and has us excited to read the whole thing.
Investigators Vol. 6 Heist and Seek (First Second) – The kids graphic novel series is always fun with its spy adventures for younger readers. Adults will enjoy it too.
Muhammad Najem: War Reporter (Little Brown Book for Young Readers) – A young Syrian chronicles the loss, hopes, and dreams of other Syrian kids.
The Nice House on the Lake #10 (DC Comics) – It’s been a while since the last issue but we’re excited as the series starts to wind down. We have no idea what’s coming in this sci-fi/horror series.
Old Dog #1 (Image Comics) – A CIA operative is given a second chance after a mission goes wrong.
Parker Girls #2 (Abstract Studios) – The first issue was a hell of a lot of fun and we’re expecting more of the same in this riff on Charlie’s Angels featuring Terry Moore’s beloved characters.
Roadie #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A horror saga about nostalgia, heavy metal music, hell, and redemption from Tim Seeley and Fran Galán? Yeah, we’re in.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Armageddon Game #1 (IDW Publishing) – After some lead up comics, the next major TMNT event kicks off!
Thunderbolts #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun and we want to find out a bit about the new character debuting in this issue.
Tim Drake: Robin #1 (DC Comics) – Tim Drake gets the spotlight!
