Wednesday is here, and Christmas is just around the corner, so if you need any last minute gifts here are some new comics comic out this week. If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week (or last Christmas). Regardless, 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 if you have spent all that extra cash on presents for everyone else. This week features a couple titles that are some of my favorites from 2016 (Black Hammer, 4 Kids Walk into a Bank, Animosity & Bloodshot) which you can check out HERE. Instead of repeating myself I wont be including those series and will choose to highlight five other titles to consider picking up this week.
Dark Horse Comics – Matt Kindt, Sharlene Kindt
Mia is trapped at the bottom of the ocean with her father’s murderer-and they must work together to repair the flooding Dept. H base. Aaron’s desperate attempt to reach the surface is their last chance at rescue, but six miles of water and the mysterious creatures that live deep in the ocean are just as dangerous as the rising water and the unknown killer inside the base.
