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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.
Pick of the Week: Death of Wolverine #1 (Marvel) -Its been months of teasing and build up, but we’re finally at the point where Wolverine (may) die. I’m still not sure if this isn’t more of a philosophical death than physical, but we will see courtesy of Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.
A1 Presents: Carpe Diem Vol. 1: I Hate Mondays (Titan Comics) – If you caught the short stories in the previous A1 Presents releases, you’ll know how hilarious and entertaining this comic is. If you missed that, here’s your chance to find out!
Cloaks #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A street illusionist entertains folks with his magic, but also steals from corrupt Wall Street bankers with it too. Still a somewhat timely subject, it’ll be interesting to see how the comic handles the continuing political issue.
The Death-Defying Dr. Mirage #1 (Valiant) – Valiant has one of the best comic universes out there right now, and this new Dr. Mirage finally gets the spotlight in this four issue mini-series.
Ex Con #1 (Dynamite) – Duane Swierczynski’s creator driven comic from Dynamite.
Kill My Mother (Liverlight) – Veteran cartoonist Jules Feiffer combines dizzyingly good pictures with a bizarre tale.
Lumberjanes #5 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – One of the best, and most fun comics on the market right now. And it doesn’t hurt it’s one of the most diverse group of characters too.
The Names #1 (Vertigo) -A new 8 issue series from Peter Milligan and Vertigo. It’s a dark, contemporary thriller set in the world of Big Money: hedge funds, leveraged buyouts, market raids, flash crashes. High-end finance that can ruin entire economies, run by a cabal of the world’s richest (and sickest) people.
Original Sin #8 (Marvel) – Marvel’s summer event wraps up. There should be some ramifications for things going forward after this ends.
She-Hulk #8 (Marvel) -One of Marvel’s best comics on the market. It perfectly mixes humor, action, and She-Hulk trying to live a normal life.
