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.
BRZRKR #9 (BOOM! Studios) – While we were skeptical about the series when it was first announced, it’s pleasantly surprised us with every issue delivering emotion and heart as much as action.
DC vs. Vampires: Killers (DC Comics) – The series has been great so far as vampires have infiltrated the heroes and villains and taken over the world!
Fist of the North Star Vol. 5 (VIZ Media) – The series has been amazing and if you’ve missed out on ever reading Fist of the North Star, these hardcover versions are a must.
Gender Queer (Oni Press) – The award winning autobiographical comic gets a new edition with a new cover, exclusive art and sketches, and new forward and afterword.
Hellboy & the BPRD: Old Man Whittier (Dark Horse) – Hellboy is always a blast and one-shot comics tend to be a lot of fun to just pick up and enjoy even if you’re not a regular reader.
Honcho #1 (CEX Publishing) – Fifteen years after World War II, a man returns to America ona mission to reunite a fractured nation… and play baseball?
Iron Cat #1 (Marvel) – We haven’t kept up with this storyline but a new character is always worth checking out.
Land of the Living Gods #5 (AfterShock) – The series has been an amazing example of world building and it taking place outside of the US and the use of local language has created a post apocalytpic tale whose details make it shine.
Life Zero #5 (Ablaze) – The series has been summer popcorn action and we have no idea where it’s all going at this point.
Mech Strike: Monster Hunters #1 (Marvel) – Superheroes with giant mechs, what more do you need?
Mindset #1 (Vault Comics) – An app helps users break free of their tech addition but is it helping people or controlling them?
The Naughty List #3 (AfterShock) – The series has been a fun twist ont he pissed off Santa genre. It has a lot of holy shit moments but also a lot of heart and emotion too.
Power Rangers Unlimited: Countdown to Ruin #1 (BOOM! Studios) – While we’re not regular Power Rangers fans, it’s hinted this issue will be important for whatever comes next.
Public Domain #1 (Image Comics) – A meta series that looks at protecting intellectual property and family fights.
Sins of the Black Flamingo #1 (Image Comics) – An occultist, queer, heist book. Yeah, we’re intrigued to check out the first issue.
Task Force Z #9 (DC Comics) – The concept of a zombie Suicide Squad might seem silly but this series works so well with great action, humor, and twists.
Transformers: Fate of Cybertron (IDW Publishing) – The current run of Transformers wraps up here!
The Variants #1 (Marvel) – What’s better than one Jessica Jones? How about a multiverse worth of them?
