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.
Animosity #5 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Marguerite Bennett, Rafael de Latorre, Rob Schwager, Marshall Dillon
A safe haven looms on the horizon, but the walled city will not take all of Jesse and Sandor’s companions. Who will live, and who will die to save the pack? Another action-packed issue brought to you by MARGUERITE BENNETT (DC Comics’ Bombshells & Marvel’s A-Force) with beautiful art by SuperZero’s RAFAEL DE LATORRE!
Batwoman: Rebirth – $2.99

The newest chapter of Batwoman’s life begins here! Monster Venom is the hottest new bioweapon on the market…and to break up the syndicate spreading it around the world, Batwoman’s going to have to return to the place where she spent some of her darkest hours! Learn where Batwoman comes from, and where she’s going, in this one-shot prologue to the first big Batwoman epic, “The Many Arms Of Death”!

Marvel Comics – Donny Cates, Geoff Shaw, Jason Wordie, John J. Hill
As Emmett Quinlan attempts to rebuild his family and his home after the devastating tornado that broke them, something otherworldly screams through the sky under a banner of WAR. The GODS have come to Texas– and they do not intend to leave it empty handed…
The Wild Storm #1 – $3.99
DC Comics – Warren Ellis, Jon Davis-Hunt, Ivan Plascencia, Tula Lotay
A troubled woman, barred by her employer from continuing her research, walks miserably through New York City. It takes her a moment to notice that everybody else is looking up. A man has been thrown from the upper floor of the Halo skyscraper.
And that woman-Angela Spica, sick from the transhuman implants she’s buried in her own body-is the only person who can save him.
What she doesn’t know is that the act of saving that one man will tip over a vast and secret house of cards that encloses the entire world, if not the inner solar system. This is how the Wild Storm begins, and it may destroy covert power structures, secret space programs and even all of human history.
New York Times best-selling writer Warren Ellis (TRANSMETROPOLITAN, RED, PLANETARY) returns to DC to curate Jim Lee’s WildStorm world, with this debut issue resetting the WildStorm universe with new iterations of Grifter, Voodoo, the Engineer, Jenny Sparks and others.
Extra Pulls: Batman #17, Dept.H #11, Mother Panic #3, Kill or be Killed #6, Sex Criminals #16
