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.
ATOMAHAWK #0 – $5.99
Image Comics – Donny Cates, Ian Bederman, Taylor Esposito,
Behold, puny earth things! A deluxe, oversized collection of the story originally serialized in Heavy Metal magazine, this is the complete adventure of the Cyberzerker and his mighty Atomahawk! Join them on their quest to free their imprisoned God, and find out why GRANT MORRISON calls it: “A screaming black hole feedback squall of death metal Kirby-kozmik energy spinning straight towards your prefrontal cortex. DONNY CATES and IAN BEDERMAN forge a stylish, super-heavy 21st-century mythology of blood, sentient steel, and rebel circuitry. A razor-nova of explosive writing and searing visuals that bury themselves deep in your skull. ATOMAHAWK REX!”
BABYTEETH #5 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Donny Cates, Garry Brown, Mark Englert, Taylor Esposito
Home is where the heart is. Also, in this case, it’s where an assassin kicks down the door and just, oh man, just starts killing people. It’s The Prarie Wolf vs a teenage mother, an old marine, and a nine-pound antichrist. Oh and….where in the HELL is Heather?! FIND OUT HERE! (You’re gonna like it!)
THE FAMILY TRADE #1 – $3.99

Introducing an all-new ongoing series from the creator of LUTHER STRODE, SPREAD, and DEAD BODY ROAD! Steampunk, alchemy, and adventure meet the ocean. On an island city in a world where history didn’t quite turn out like ours, a hidden family of spies, thieves, and assassins makes sure that the world keeps going. Or they did, until Jessa Wynn, their youngest member, manages to start a civil war.
MISTER MIRACLE #3 – $3.99
DC Comics – Tom King, Mitch Gerads, Nick Derington
The groundbreaking new series from the creators of The Sherriff of Babylon and BATMAN #14-15 continues. The insanity of war is the insanity of Mister Miracle. Darkseid and Orion’s forces clash violently on the battlefields of New Genesis. Stained with blood and glory, the New Gods fight on. As they move closer to victory, Scott and Barda begin to see that every step forward leads them into a deadly trap. Where do you run when the path ahead is your enemy’s triumph and the path behind is your family’s defeat?
