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 if you saved some extra cash from not buying into the new DC relaunch.
Andrew Wheeler, Paulina Ganucheau

Matt Kindt, Trevor Hairsine, Ryan Winn, David Baron, Tom Muller
Russia reigns supreme! Just a month after the arrival of long-lost cosmonaut Mishka, the former Soviet Union has made an impossible push to become the world’s preeminent superpower. But how? Ninjak has a theory, but it will require going undercover across enemy lines…and maybe some help from Mishka’s old comrade, Abram Adams – the god-like being known as Divinity! But can the motives of a deity among men ever truly be known…and will the return of Divinity’s former teammate rekindle his old allegiances?
Christopher Sebela, Robert Wilson IV, Nick Filardi
