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.
Aquamen #1 (DC Comics) – DC looks to have some big plans for the Aquaman corner of their universe and things really begin to pick up with this new series which brings a lot of different plotlines together it looks like.
Ben Reilly: Spider-Man #2 (Marvel) – Ben Reilly has been a character that has been hit and miss, so we were shocked at how blown away we were by this first issue. We’re hoping for more.
BRZRKR #7 (BOOM! Studios) – The series has been full of action but also a lot of heart as well.
Carnage Forever #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is celebrating 30 years of Carnage. What’s coming? We’ll maybe get some answers here.
Dark Ages #5 (Marvel) – This event has been fantastic so far. Our heroes begin their assault on Europe to stop Apocalypse and with deaths already everything is on the table as far as what’s next.
DC vs. Vampires #5 (DC Comics) – When last we left it, it was the Justice League vs. Batman and Green Arrow. Who’s a vampire in the Justice League? We’ll find out!
Ghost Rider #1 (Marvel) – The character has had a rough go for a while but this sounds like a clean slate of a start that hopefully will put Ghost Rider more front and center like he should be.
Glamorella’s Daughter #4 (Literati Press) – A fantastic spin on the superhero genre. There’s solid heart and solid laughs.
The Harbinger #5 (Valiant) – Valiant is getting their world back in order and this series, along with Shadowman, feels like it’s going to play a major role in what’s to come. With a movie now again in the works, this is one to keep an eye on.
The Killer: Affairs of the State #1 (BOOM! Studios) – We love this series about a European hitman. Think James Bond but without the imperialist bullshit.
Step By Bloody Step #1 (Image Comics) – A wordless comic by Simon Spurrier, Matheus Lopes, and Matias Bergara featuring an armored giant and helpless child. We’re intrigued to check this one out as it hits the nostalgia button and wordless comics can be very hit or miss.
Snow Angels Vol. 1 (Dark Horse) – If you missed this series as single issues when comiXology Originals released it, here’s your chance to discover this frozen sci-fi horror series.
Supermassive (Image Comics) – Image is getting a superhero world spinning out of Radiant Black and things really kick off here.
Task Force Z #5 (DC Comics) – The concept of an undead Suicide Squad might sound silly but it has worked so far and last issue left us with a lot of questions we want answers to!
We Ride Titans #2 (Vault Comics) – Giant piloted mechs protect against kaiju, we’ve seen that before. But, this series focuses on the dysfunctional family that manages and pilots one of those mechs.
