Wednesday almost here, and new comics are within reach. If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week (or last month), but here is a list of new series starting this week, which 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. I have chosen to highlight five promising new titles to consider picking up this week.
DC Comics – Tom King, Scott Snyder, Paul Dini, Steve Orlando, Scott Wilson. Riley Rossmo, Neal Adams, David Finch, Bilquis Evely, Declan Shalvey
