There is nothing quite like New Comic Book Day! It wouldn’t be a Wednesday without new comics like BLISS & AMETHYST.
If you are a reader like me, that TBR (to be read) pile of comics continues to grow. If that isn’t enough to stop you from checking out new releases, here is my list of Top 5 Comics out this week.
BLISS #1 -$3.99
Publisher – Image Comics
Creators – Sean Lewis, Caitlin Yarsky
The team behind hit comic COYOTES returns for an all-new, two-arc maxi-series. There’s a drug called Bliss wiping away memories in Feral City. A good-hearted young man, overwhelmed by a deathly sick child and distraught wife, makes a deal to become the personal hitman to three gods, killing those in their way and sending memories down the river of Oblivion in exchange for his family’s well-being. Breaking Bad meets Neil Gaiman’s Sandman in an urban fantasy unlike any you’ve ever seen.
AMETHYST #4 – $3.99
Publisher – DC Comics
Creators – Amy Reeder, Marissa Louise, Gabriela Downie
Princess Amy’s mission takes her and her companions directly into the heart of Dark Opal! But the answers Amethyst finds will change everything she thought she knew about the nature of Gemworld!

David M. Booher, Drew Zucker, Vittorio Astone, and Deron Bennett return to Canto’s world, following the brave clockwork hero as he leads his people out from their home in Arcana to find somewhere-and something-new! When Canto encounters a group of captured fairies, it’s up to him to liberate them, but can he do it without being captured himself?

* The Ranger Slayer – a.k.a. Kimberly Hart, the Pink Mighty Morphin Power Ranger from the alternate universe once ruled by Lord Dakkon – returns home and nothing is like she expected.
* In a world that only knows her as a villain, can Kimberly show her universe that she’s become a hero… and is that even the right thing to do?
* Confronted by a terrifying new version of Rita Repulsa and her home in chaos, Kimberly will make a stunning choice that no Power Rangers fan can miss.
* This issue is also a perfect jumping on point for new readers – and sets the stage for the next Power Rangers epic!

“THE GREAT GAME,” Part Two-Designer Sid Meier described games as a series of interesting decisions. “May you live in interesting times” is a curse. Both things are true, and both are true here.
