Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (MAXWELL’S DEMONS, COME INTO ME & TARZAN/RED SONJA). 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.
COME INTO ME #2 – $3.99
Black Mask Comics – Zac Thompson @ZacBeThompson, Lonnie Nadler @Lon_Monster, Piotr Kowalski @KowalskiPiotr
When two become one, who is in control? What can you keep secret? Worse yet, what does it mean for the body that holds them together?
DARK ARK #6 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Cullen Bunn @cullenbunn, Juan Doe @juandoe, Ryane Hill @ryane_hill
Two arks sail the flooded world. On one, Noah tends the animals of the natural world. On the other, the sorcerer Shrae stands watch over the monsters that haunt the night. But in order for Shrae’s charges to thrive in the World That Waits, Noah’s Ark must also survive. And when Noah’s vessel encounters trouble, Shrae’s monsters must work in secrecy to ensure that their would-be prey lives to find land.
MAXWELL’S DEMONS #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Deniz Camp @MDesaad, Vittorio Astone @AstoneVittorio, Aditya Bidikar @adityab, Nathan Gooden @nathan_gooden
Max runs away from home! But what is he running from…and where to? And: A world held together by desire! A universe that is the rotting carcass of a Dead God! AND, because you demanded it, THE TRUTH ABOUT TIME!
TARZAN/RED SONJA #1 – $3.99
Dynamite Entertainment – Gail Simone @GailSimone, Walter Geovani @wgpencil, Adam Hughes @AH_AdamHughes
The She-Devil with a Sword meets the Lord of the Jungle!
Eson Duul is an evil man. The mere mention of his name makes powerful quake with fear. He has no regard for life, including that of man. But he may finally have met his match when he finds himself up against Red Sonja and Tarzan!
Gail Simone (Birds of Prey, Red Sonja) and Walter Geovani (Red Sonja, Clean Room) reunite to bring us the crossover event featuring two of fiction’s greatest heroes side by side at last!
SPIDER-MAN #240 – $3.99

THE END OF AN ERA FOR MILES MORALES!
Marvel Comics proudly presents the final issue of Bendis’ epic (bio-electric) run! Over seven years and across two universes, Miles Morales has been an Ultimate, a Web-Warrior, an Avenger and a Champion. A New Yorker, a student, a son and a friend. And whenever the city needed him (and one time when all of reality needed him), he was always SPIDER-MAN. Don’t miss the chance to see comics superstar Brian Michael Bendis bid farewell to one of his most beloved creations, and to glimpse what the future may hold for Miles Morales.
