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: Incognegro: A Graphic Mystery and Incognegro: Renaissance #1 (Dark Horse/Berger Books) – These are some of the best things I’ve read in a long time in any form. A great examination of race in America wrapped up in a nail biting thriller and more relevant than ever.
Top Pick: X-Men: Red #1 (Marvel) – A new X-Men team with a returned Jean Grey as the leader? I’m intrigued where this one will go and if this is the tipping point of “X” bloat, which we’re already near. But, a big character returning to a world that’s vastly different has me very intrigued.
Avengers #679 (Marvel) – “No Surrender” has been a lot of fun so far. A rare event that’s holding up in quality.
Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands #4 (DC Comics) – A great mix of action and socio-political commentary. Exactly how it’s supposed to be done.
Carthago (Humanoids) – I’m a Jaws fan, so a comic that sounds like it’s another terror from below with sharks story, I’m in.
Coyotes #4 (Image Comics) – Fantastic horror with so many layers. You’ll be debating what it all means and the symbolism. Don’t think there’s much out there today like this series.
Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles #2 (DC Comics) – One of the best comics of 2018 so far. This will easily wind up on “best of” lists.
Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock #1 (Marvel) – A big event is kicking off, big enough that it shook up plans for ongoing series. With a movie coming up touching upon some of the same characters and concepts, this should be interesting.
Mech Cadet Yu #6 (BOOM! Studios) – One of my favorite series. Just so much fun to read. In short, kids and giant robots kick alien ass.
