GOTHAM CITY GARAGE #1 plays into the DC Bombshell universe; FAMILY TRADE #1 is a new Image ongoing from Justin Jordan, and his LUTHER STRODE COMP SERIES HC is also out; WILDSTORM MICHAEL CRAY #1 spins out of the Warren Ellis Wildstorm series; RUNAWAYS #2 reminds us so much of the original series. Then there are these always excellent books: HARROW COUNTY #26, GRASS KINGS #8, REDLANDS, #3, MECH CADET YU #3, MS MARVEL #23. And local creator (and all-around pizza-lovin’ nice guy) Dave Scheidt’s new all-ages comic WRAPPED UP #1 debuts this week.
