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.
Aftershock Comics – Donny Cates, Garry Brown, Mark Englert, Taylor Esposito
So, you know how we’ve all been really coy and playful about how this book is going to get dark and bloody and really hardcore at a certain point? This is the issue where that starts happening. Happy reading everyone! (Call your mother. She worries).
IDW Publishing – Paul Allor, Nelson Daniel, George Caltsoudas
As a prime suspect emerges, the body count continues to rise drastically. Meanwhile, one of our characters grows tired of waiting, and decides to take action-with predictably deadly results! The suspects dwindle and our endgame nears.
Oni Press – Kyle Starks, Gabo, Brian Hurt, Bill Crabtree, Crank!
Stuck in the freezing Zombiepocalypse that is Dead of Winter, how could things get any worse for our intrepid heroes? How about they get blown up and “rescued” by a drunk mall Santa? How about being held captive in a police station by an insane police officer while it slowly becomes overrun by the zombie menace? That’s being stuck between rock and a hard place, friends!
DC Comics – Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Nick Derington
What do you do after the most death-defying act of your escape artist career? You go to war, of course! Scott Free has skipped out on his trip to the great beyond and taken a boom tube to New Genesis instead, where he and his wife, Big Barda, take on the invading hordes of Apokolips. Things are a little off, however, and Mister Miracle starts to doubt why he’s fighting when Orion takes over the mantle of Highfather. It’s enough to make a New God miss Granny Goodness’s orphanage!
Image Comics – Seth M. Peck, Jeremy Haun, Nick Filardi, Thomas Mauer
An all new post-apocalyptic high-fantasy adventure series. Fifteen years ago, our world was overrun by creatures of myth; orcs, dragons, and other nameless horrors threw the entire planet into total chaos. Today, the shattered remnants of civilization must fight just to survive in a deadly new era of violence and mayhem. While a powerful sorcerer marshals his forces, a group of warriors embark on a journey to reclaim our world from the growing darkness.
