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 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 Wednesday.
The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Marvel) – So far so good in this Nick Spencer helmed comic which is already showing a different voice from the Spider-Man of the past few years. We’ve been surprised so far and this is one that has exceeded our expectations.
Aphrodite V #2 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The first issue was an interesting an entertaining take on the character. With a new setting and new characters, and a little mix of real world issues, this is one we’ve got our eye on.
Batman: King of Fear #1 (DC Comics) – There’s a lot of Batman out there but the return of artist Kelley Jones has us excited for this six-issue miniseries.
Black Panther #3 (Marvel) – It shouldn’t work but it totally does. Give us this revolution in space take on the classic Black Panther.
Cold Spots #1 (Image Comics) – A new horror series from Cullen Bunn with art by Mark Torres. That’s all you need to know.
Die!Die!Die! #2 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – The first issue was pure over the top violence and insanity. We’re in to see if the second can deliver just as much.
Double Jumpers: Full Circle Jerks #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The first volume was some 8-bit geeky fun and we’re hopeful the second can deliver on that again.
Justice League Dark #2 (DC Comics) – The team is an interesting one and this series in an issue has stood out from the rest of the Justice League comics. A focus on horror/magic is part of that but it’s the team and their personalities that’s selling this one.
Life of Captain Marvel #2 (Marvel) – Is it tweaking what we know about the character? Yes. Do we care? No, especially when the first issue was so good.
Planet of the Apes: Visionaries (BOOM! Studios) – It’s Rod Serling’s unused take on the classic property and it’ll get you to rethink the original.
The Punisher #1 (Marvel) – This feels like a getting back to basics for the character and we’re excited for that.
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #23 (Marvel) – This continues to be Indiana Jones in space with a character whose attitude rivals Han Solo. Always fun and always entertaining.
Teen Titans #21 (DC Comics) – It’s a new team with a new attitude and the first issue was fantastic with a hell of a twist ending and we want to see where that goes.
West Coast Avengers #1 (Marvel) – This line up of characters has us sold.
Wonder Woman #53 (DC Comics) – Steve Orlando taking on Wonder Woman? Yes please!
