Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (FAITHLESS, FAIRLADY, & BÊLIT). 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.
FAITHLESS #1 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Brian Azzarello, Maria Llovet, Paul Pope
Faith. Sex. The Devil.
Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it’s cute-and not just a little off-putting, but it’s part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she’s a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She’s right, of course. It just took a while for that magic, that temptation, that unknowable thing to find her . . .
In short- Faith is bored as hell. And Hell has noticed.
New York Times bestselling writer Brian Azzarello ( 100 Bullets , Batman: Damned ) and artist Maria Llovet ( Loud ) with Eisner Award winning artist Paul Pope on covers coalesce in a story of self-exploration, eroticism, and maybe even love.
FAIRLADY #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Brian Schirmer, Claudia Balboni, Marissa Louise, Shari Chankhamma, Tula Lotay
Every fantasy epic ends with a war. But what happens when the war is over?
After posing as a man to join the army, Jenner Faulds returns home to The Feld for a new start as a “Fairman”-a specially licensed private investigator. But sexism didn’t end on the battlefield, and as the only “Fairlady,” Jenner gets stuck with the cases nobody else wants. Hitting the streets to solve The Feld’s overlooked mysteries, Jenner finds that the smallest cases hide the biggest secrets.
MURDER FALCON #7 – $3.99

To save the world, Jake and Murder Falcon must find the fabled Horn of the Dead. How metal is that?!
WINTER SOLDIER #5 – $3.99

Bucky and RJ must come to terms with RJ’s new life and Bucky’s brash decision. Will RJ accept the truth? Or has Bucky lost him for good? An ending filled with answers and regret!
