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 need to pick up some additional summer reading before your vacation.

After being stranded on the ocean floor, Mia is brought back to headquarters and leads a rescue party to bring back her missing brother.

As the Western world grapples with the ensuing chaos and confusion of Russia’s rapid return to power, Divinity and Ninjak attempt to marshal resistance against an empire enabled by the god-like will of one of its own true believers. But nothing escapes the sight of the super-powered gods that now walk among us…and our fate will be forever decided when Myshka targets Divinity for control of our world’s destiny!

THEY SAID IT: “Drawing Wonder Woman isn’t just drawing a comic, it’s drawing an icon-the most famous and recognizable female superhero in the world,” exclaims artist Liam Sharp. “To get to draw her in her 75th year, with a new storyline scribed by no less than Greg Rucka, makes this without doubt the most important drawing gig of my 30 years in comics.”
