Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics. If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
BLOODSHOT SALVATION #4 – $3.99
Valiant Entertainment – Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, Mico Suayan, Brian Reber
At last – The origin of Rampage! This is the story of two brothers, who were born into nothing and reaped an inheritance of anger… This is the story of Rampage – an imperfect reflection of Bloodshot’s potential, one enhanced by the same very same nanite technology, but fueled by an inextinguishable furnace of hate… This is the story of the Valiant Universe’s most terrifying new villain, and a preview of the pain he has yet to inflict on an unsuspecting world…
JUGHEAD THE HUNGER #2 – $3.99
Archie Comics – Frank Tieri, Pat Kennedy, Tim Kennedy, Joe Eisma, Adam Gorham
As Jughead’s life as a fugitive grows deadlier, Betty and Archie close in-and they’re not alone. Betty’s werewolf hunter relatives’ ruthlessness may spell the end for good ol’ Jug!
MISTER MIRACLE #5 – $3.99
DC Comics – Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Nick Derington
How do you spend your last night on Earth? Why, with the one you love, of course! Having been condemned to death by the new Highmaster, Mister Miracle is going to have to return to New Genesis for his execution. Before he does, he and Big Barda go on one last date. But if Scott Free truly is infected by Darkseid, as Orion says, you can bet some dark force will intervene-only to what end?
MONSTRO MECHANICA #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Paul Allor, Chris Evenhuis, Sjan Weijers, Ariela Kristantina
A new series starring Leonardo da Vinci, his female apprentice and their wooden robot! At the height of the Renaissance, warring factions vie for control of Leonardo da Vinci’s destructive arsenal. The only thing standing in their way is Leonardo’s young apprentice and her nine-foot tall mechanical bodyguard. Together, they navigate a world of wicked men and war machines, determined to save Leonardo from the world-and the world from Leonardo.
THE WICKED + THE DIVINE CHRISTMAS ANNUAL #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Kieron Gillen, Kris Anka, Chynna Clugston Flores, Carla Speed McNeil, Rachael Stott, Emma Vieceli, Jamie McKelvie, Matt Wilson
JAMIE said “It’s a shame we never saw any of the gods’ early funtimes,” and KIERON said “Yeah,” and then they looked at each other, and then called all their talented friends to do a Christmas album of (mostly) fan service! Inanna and Baal getting it on! Lucifer and Sakhmet getting it on! Dionysus giving Baphomet a lift in a crappy car! And more! This one has it all.
Extra Pulls: Coyotes #2, Amazing Spider-Man #792, Punisher #219, Animosity #11, Brilliant Trash #2
