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.
Above Snakes #1 (Image Comics) – The series brings together Western tropes and good ole American vengeance from the creators of The Few and Thumbs.
AXE: Eve of Judgement #1 (Marvel) – Kicking off the big event of the summer for Marvel. The opening round of the Eternals battle against the people of Krakoa begins here.
Barbaric: Harvest Blades (Vault Comics) – The first volume was great with a fun take on the fantasy genre that delivered a lot of action and some good humor.
By the Horns: Dark Earth #2 (Scout Comics) – For those that enjoy fantasy, this is a must. It’s a great mix of magic and tech as magic is all out of whack and the world is in danger.
Cities of Magick #3 (Scout Comics) – The first two issues have been intriguing building up the world as magic now rules and technology is a thing of the past. It’s an interesting flip on the magic vs. tech story we’ve seen before.
Daredevil #1 (Marvel) – The next phase of Daredevil’s story begins here as the two go international and shift their focus on The Hand. You know this will eventually have the two having to take on the Punisher.
Dogs of London #3 (AfterShock) – We went in expecting a series about former gangsters haunted by their pasts but what’s been teased shows this is so much more. We’re stumped and want to know what’s going on.
Eight Billion Genies #3 (Image Comics) – The comic has been great so far. The ideas are wild but it’s also intelligently kept things focused as the world deals with everyone having a genie and a wish.
Flavor Girls #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A Magical Girl story with an environmental twist.
Justice Warriors #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue was great satire taking on the police and so much more. We want more of the same and hoping for exactly that. Skewer away!
Rogues #3 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The series has been a twisted heist story as the Rogues go for one last big one. It’s been amazing so far and a must for those that love the characters or that type of story.
X-Men: Hellfire Gala #1 (Marvel) – Last year’s event was a big deal so expect the same here.
