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.

Black Panther Annual #1 (Marvel) – Some of Black Panther’s greatest creators return for this annual.

Deathbed #1 (Vertigo) – We’ve read it, it’s amazing and entertaining. A writer is hired to tell the life of a mysterious person… then the twist happens.

Fence #4 (BOOM! Studios) – A wonderful series that takes the best of sports focused manga and gives it a Western twist. Every issues is fantastic.

Hit-Girl #1 (Image Comics) – The Kick-Ass reboot was a mixed bag but we’re hoping this one will be better.

Infinity Countdown: Prime #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s next event is gearing up and we’re excited to see where it goes.

James Bond: The Body #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Have you read the first issue!? Bond recounts tales as to how he received the scars he has. A fantastic way to frame the story.

Mata Hari #1 (Dark Horse/Berger Books) – A new release from Berger Books is on our radar and a series we’re automatically looking forward to checking out.

Punks Not Dead #1 (IDW Publishing/Black Crown) – A new release from Black Crown is on our radar and a series we’re automatically looking forward to checking out.

Quantum and Woody #3 (Valiant) – One of the most entertaining superhero comics on the market. The team up will keep you entertained from the action and the laughter.

Rust Vol. 4 (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – If you’ve read the first three volumes of this series, you know why it’s on this list. From the beautiful art to the amazing storytelling, this volume wraps up the series about a mechanical boy trying to live his life post war. We’re expecting a tearjerker.

Seven years in the making, the breathtaking conclusion to Royden Lepp’s Rust graphic novel series is here! As an unprecedented robot force closes in on the Taylor farm, Jet Jones must embrace his true identity if he’s to defend the family he loves.

Royden Lepp’s ‘Rust’ Concludes in February 2018 from BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios has announced Royden Lepp’s Rust Vol. 4: Soul in the Machine, the final chapter to his critically acclaimed graphic novel series about a mysterious boy who suddenly appears on a farm struggling to survive after a long apocalyptic war and changes the fate of the family who runs it. Debuting in February 2018, this original graphic novel marks the first time the publisher has released both hardcover and softcover editions simultaneously in comic shops and bookstores.

At the center of the Rust saga is Jet Jones, a boy with a jetpack who crashes into the Taylor family farm. As Jet deals with his uncertain future, members of the Taylor family each view his arrival—and subsequent stay—in different ways.

Developed over the last seven years, Rust is a deeply personal story that echoes Lepp’s own history—in particular, the eldest son, Roman, who grapples with the loss of his father, who went missing during the war.

The previous volumes of this acclaimed graphic novel series—Rust Vol 1: Visitor in the Field, Rust Vol. 2: Secrets of the Cell, and Rust Vol. 3: Death of the Rocket Boy—are all available in hardcover, softcover, and digital format. An additional release, the Rust Vol. 0: The Boy Soldier softcover, collects the prologues of all four hardcover volumes.

Creator Royden Lepp continues his all-ages saga of Jet Jones and the Taylor family in this third and penultimate installment of Rust, giving us the lyrical and visually stunning ode to family, childhood, and sacrifice that we love.

Oz Taylor may know Jet Jones’ secret, but convincing the rest of his family may be harder than he counted on. As Oz plots to rid the Taylor farm of the rocket boy, Jet tries to prove himself to the family that has taken him in, in hopes of finding the home he has searched for so long. However, when shadows of Jet’s past start coming back into his life, he realizes his days of running may be numbered.

More secrets of the past are revealed for both Jet and the Taylors as they face their darkest fears in this calm before the oncoming storm. And, of course, more high-octane robot action!
