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.
Babyteeth #2 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Donny Cates, Garry Brown, Mark Englert, Taylor Esposito
The first few weeks of raising a baby can be hell. Clark won’t latch or take a bottle, he’s fussy all the time and he has just destroyed Sadie’s sleep schedule. Ugh, and also the constant assassins and secret cabals organizing against her to kill her baby because he’s the dark lord incarnate who will usher in the apocalypse…well, that is just not helping either…
From the writer of Buzzkill, Paybacks, Redneck and the break-out hit God Country comes a pulse-pounding new series with art from THE REVISIONIST’s Garry Brown!
Failsafe #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – F.J. Desanto, Todd Farmer, Federico Dallocchio, Jon Adams
As John Ravane recovers from the attack on Insuregent Command, and President Chong tries to contain the ensuing turmoil, thousands of sleeper soldiers launch a hostile takeover of Manhattan. While the motives behind the violent occupation remain unclear, Insurgent Affairs expert Cindy Ford does uncover the truth behind the kidnapping of Ravane’s daughter.
There’s Nothing There #3 – $3.99
Black Mask Comics – Patrick Kindlon, Maria Llovet
Reno’s apartment is invaded by her aloof mother, an angry Instragram weed model, sleazy paparazzi, and a deranged celebrity stalker. She seeks answers from a television psychic, but ghosts have some questions for her. Meanwhile, her friends start to realize being close with a human target has its drawbacks.
Unholy Grail #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Cullen Bunn, Mirko Colak, Maria Santaolalla, Simon Bowland, Francesco Francavilla
Arthur Pendragon was the king of all Britain. His story is legendary. Merlin. The Lady of the Lake. Excalibur. Camelot. The Knights of the Round Table. But these stories are bright lies painted over the truth. Here is presented the gospel of Arthur’s bloody rise to power and his unholy reign. The legend of King Arthur is not the stuff of legends, but the fuel of nightmares.
As Arthur descends into darkness, is there any lingering hope that he still might do something good?
From writer Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men, Deadpool) and artist Mirko Colak (Punisher) comes a Lovecraftian take on the Arthurian legend that HAD to be told at AfterShock Comics.
