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.

DIVINITY, a lost Russian cosmonaut newly returned to Earth with god-like powers, has successfully restored the world to order after the reality-altering event known as the Stalinverse.

From BLOODSHOT to FAITH to NINJAK and dozens of surprise guest stars, traverse the world of Valiant’s most enduring icons as DIVINITY guides a standalone entry point into the most acclaimed publishing line in comics today!
