Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (WASTED SPACE, HOT LUNCH SPECIAL, & NANCY DREW). 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.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
CROWDED #2 – $3.99
Image Comics – Christother Sebela, Ro Stein, Ted Brandt, Triona Farrell, Cardinal Rae
The million-dollar Reapr goal on Charlie Ellison’s head keeps going up, drawing more unqualified and overarmed users to try to kill her and her bodyguard Vita, who’s desperately trying to keep her only client alive. When the sanctity of Vita’s home is invaded and they have to find a new safehouse, they’re dragged through some dark corners, and begin to uncover who started this campaign.
EXILES #8 – $3.99
Marvel Comics – Saladin Ahmed, Joe Quinones, Joe Rivera, Jordan Gibson, Chris Sotomayor, Munsta Vicente, Joe Caramagna, Mike McKone,
The Watchers are back! And their all-seeing eyes are fixed firmly on the Exiles. Sure, the team’s time-traveling antics saved the Multiverse – but nobody messes with the timestream while these Watchers are on duty. Justice will be served – and you might be surprised who ELSE appears to dish it out.
HOT LUNCH SPECIAL #2 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Eliot Rahal, Jorge Fornes. Taylor Esposito
A midwestern noir series set in the harsh landscape of the northern Minnesota Iron Range-Hot Lunch Special is all about family, food and the fight for survival. Only one question is worth asking…is blood thicker than sandwiches?
Liam Moran, the son of notorious Irish Mobster “Big Jim” Moran, was only supposed to send a warning. A machine gun message to the Jordan Khoury: Pay up or pay the price. Unfortunately, things went sideways, and now…someone is dead. Broken hearts and bitter questions are left in the wake of his untimely murder. But before they can be addressed, it’s time for a fractious Khoury family funeral.
An outcast son will return home, a mother will mourn, and a guilty grieving grandfather will finally reveal his dark criminal secret.
