Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (ISOLA, VENOM & BETROTHED). 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.
BETROTHED #3 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Sean Lewis, Steve Uy, Simon Bowland
The Betrothed’s earth-bound guardians get involved as all hell breaks loose for Kieron and Tamara. After battling Barbarians and having their friends discover the truth about the pair, how can they find a way to cope? Enter an all-night keg party, filled with flirta-tion, jealousy and a few pranks along the way. Funny, fantastical and full violence-issue #3 arrives with a bang!
EXILES #3 – $3.99

CAPTAIN CARTER KILLS THE RED SKULL!
That’s her mission, anyway! The fan-favorite Captain America – Peggy Carter of the Marvel Puzzle Quest game – faces off against an apocalyptically armed Red Skull! And the Exiles are just in time to join the fight – ‘cuz they’ve been kicked off their mission! There’s a new team of Watchers in town, and they’re cracking down on the Exiles’ interference in the timestream – even if it means the death of everything. Can the Exiles salvage Peggy Carter’s world, fix the Tallus and get back to saving reality before the Time-Eater tracks them down again?
ISOLA #2 – $3.99
Image Comics – Brendan Fletcher, Karl Kerschl, Msassyk
With the hunting clans closing in, Captain Rook leads the Queen to a city in ruins on a desperate mission to resupply. Unbeknownst to them, however, a new danger awaits within the broken walls – someone with a connection to Rook’s past!
JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE #1 – $3.99
DC Comics – Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Joshua Williamson, Francis Manapul
DARK NIGHTS: METAL left the DCU transformed in ways both terrifying and wondrous-and only the Justice League is strong enough to face the threats to come…or are they? Four giant beings comprised of the universe’s major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu. The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.
What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover? Will Zatanna, Wonder Woman and Team Wonder awaken alien magic they cannot put back to sleep? What can Harley Quinn possibly have to teach the rest of Team Wisdom? And most importantly…why the heck is Beast Boy on Team Entropy with Lobo and Batman? Find out all this and much more in the most exciting, bombastic event of summer 2018!
In this kickoff issue to the four-issue miniseries, after Brainiac systematically takes down all of Earth’s super-teams, the last thing the League expects is for him to ask for their help! Without their aid, his home planet and the universe are both doomed!
VENOM #1 – $4.99
Marvel Comics – Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, Ip Mayer, Frank Martin
In the wake of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s collapse, an ancient and primordial evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York, and with it, something equally evil has awakened in that most Wicked of Webslingers – VENOM! Still a Lethal Protector of the innocents in New York, this never-before-seen threat could force Venom to relinquish everything it holds dear – including Eddie Brock! Join two of the hottest creators in comics today, Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, for a VENOM adventure a thousand years in the making!
