Wednesday is here, and new comics are within reach (or maybe not if this weeks holiday messed with your local comic shops shipping schedule). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week (or last month), 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. I have chosen to highlight five promising titles you should also be picking up this week, plus a few extras for those of you who decided not to spend your allowance on fireworks.
Dark Horse Comics – Kurtis Wiebe, Mindy Lee, Leonardo Olea
The Gadflies were the most wanted criminals in the galaxy-robbing corporations to redistribute wealth to the destitute. Now, with a bounty to match their reputation, the Gadflies are forced to abandon banditry for a career as bounty hunters . . . ’cause if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em-then rob ’em blind!
Jet City Comics – Gwenda Bond, Kate Leth, Ming Doyle, Andrew Dalhouse
From bestselling writer Gwenda Bond (Lois Lane: Fallout), this four-issue comic book series, written by Kate Leth (Patsy Walker A.K.A. Hellcat, Adventure Time: Seeing Red) features a new stand-alone story set within the world of Bond’s exotic, magical Cirque American. After a high-profile tumble, Cirque American’s star wire walker, Jules Maroni, has a lot to prove-and her invitation to an exclusive exhibition in Paris looks to be just the opportunity to put her back on top. Unfortunately, the City of Lights glitters with distractions, including the presence of her first serious boyfriend and a mysterious figure haunting the venue.

Mac’s new partner doesn’t seem to like him very much.
Black Mask Comics – Magdalene Visaggio, Eva Cabrera, Tess Fowler
Kim & Kim are twentysomething besties out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement. In a massive “screw you” to their parents and the authorities, they decide to hijack some high stakes bounty – and end up in way over their heads.Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm. It puts queer women and trans women front and center, with a story that embraces the absurd alongside realistic pathos. It’s a mature book that focuses on the power and meaning of female friendships as engines of validation.
Image Comics – Joshua Williamson, Mike Henderson
