Wednesday is here, and new comics are within reach. So you may be like me and still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but here is a list of new titles I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult with the vast amount of quality books being published currently. This week is the release of DC’s Rebirth, but I have chosen to highlight five other titles you should also be picking up this week, plus a few extras for those of you who finally got that refund from that faulty sprinkler you returned.
Eliot Rahal, Daniel Kibblesmith, Kendall Goode
Comic reader need to wake up to the great books Heavy Metal is publishing. It is not too late to pick up the previous issues of one of my favorite current series, The Doorman. Issue 3 comes out this week and features a new ally Koalmanac, who, if you didn’t figure out, is a koala. So what happens when a koala has the answers to this galactic conspiricy? We’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
Marjorie Liu, Mark Brooks, Sonia Oback, Joe Caramagna, Lee Bermejo

The streets of New York have been plagued by a pattern of crimes too weird and bizarre for the average detective. Lurking in the evidence are shadows of loathsome horrors from beyond space and time, seeking to usher in the unimaginable evil of the Old Ones. And the only man capable of fighting against the unspeakable terrors isn’t a man at all. Detective Sebastian Greene is one of them-it takes a monster to catch a monster.
