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: Moon Knight #188 (Marvel) – I’m always up to read a new Moon Knight series, and while I did drop off of Lemire’s run, I’m more than excited to see a new take on the character. Plus, I’m a sucker for the Legacy numbering.
Pestilence #5 (AfterShock) – Zombies in the middle ages. I honestly have no other reason for wanting to read this.
Harbinger Renegade #0 (Valiant) – As the build up to Valiant’s next big event continues, I’m super curious to see what’s on offer here.
Top Pick: Moon Knight #188 (Marvel) – I loved the last run, and am excited to see where Max Bemis takes this. So far he has proven to be a fun writer (see Worst X-Men Ever), and I always love how batshit crazy Moon Knight is.
Batman Lost #1 (DC Comics) – More Metal! This series has been turned up to 11, and now we get more craziness from Snyder and an awesome team of all stars.
Mister Miracle #4 (DC Comics) – Tom King is great at giving what you never expect, and this series has been no different. So far this is a brutal, raw, and original look at the New Gods and their supporting cast. I have loved every issue so far.
Detective Comics #968 (DC Comics) – I am a Tim fan, and Red Robin is back, but so is future-Batman-Tim who is a bit more ruthless and scary. This series is a ton of fun.
The Despicable Deadpool #289 (Marvel) – We get more classic Deadpool vs Cable before the movie sequel will add even more of it. This is stupid fun.
Top Pick: Star Wars #38 (Marvel) – Kieron Gillen takes on Star Wars, that alone has me excited for this.
Catalyst Prime: Accell Vol. 2 #1 (Lion Forge) – The Catalyst Prime universe has been a breath of fresh air and their resident speedster is a perfect example of the energy that makes the line of comics so entertaining and fun.
Force #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – Football + comic = a must for me.
Eugenic #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was a shocker and the second takes us 200 years further into the future. A series that feels like it’s breaking so many rules.
Kong on Planet of the Apes #1 (BOOM! Studios) – I had never thought of this crossover and while it seems silly, holy crap do I want this.
