It’s week 5 of a 5 Wednesday month and there’s plenty of fun new books out this week! JLA DOOM PATROL SPECIAL #1 The Doom Patrol has discovered that an interdimensional corporation called RetCo has been stealing stories, reconfiguring them and repackaging them for new markets. Our gang of misfit heroes have felt the touch of this nefarious company, and it has already started to change them. Even scarier, though, is how deeply RetCo has embedded itself into current continuity, using the radioactive milk of psychic cows to quell the more dangerous impulses of the Justice League and turn them into heroes safe for the masses! BLACK AF AMERICAS SWEETHEART Eli Franklin is a 15-year-old girl living in rural Montana-and she just happens to be the most powerful person on the planet. In the aftermath of the world learning that only black people have superpowers, Eli makes her debut as the superhero Good Girl, on a mission to help people and quell the fear of empowered blacks. Will donning a patriotic costume be enough for her to find acceptance? MOTHERLANDS #1 In a crazed future where unhinged technologies and interconnected parallel Earths have given rise to a spectacular class of super-criminal, the most beloved celebrities aren't actors or rock stars, but the bounty hunters who traverse an exotic multiverse in search of impossible prey! HUNGRY GHOSTS #1 On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles-where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings-and prays to survive the challenge. SILENCER #1 She's one of the DC Universe's deadliest assassins...and you've never heard of her. Super-strong, highly trained, armed with devastating and stealthy meta-human abilities, the Silencer is virtually invincible. Or at least she was. STAR WARS LAST JEDI DJ Who is this mystery man, and what put him in the path of our Resistance heroes? And let’s not forget DARK NIGHTS METAL #5, KAIJUMAX SEASON 3 #6, AVENGERS #678, MYSTIK U #2, FLASH ANNUAL #1, QUANTUM & WOODY #2 and so much more. Can you believe we’re already done with January? New Comics never stop!!

Forces that took her husband from her. Forces she has sworn to destroy. DISSONANCE #1 In an alternate world where Earth is populated with powerful human-spirit hybrids called Fantasmen, Folke and Roisia Herviett, two siblings with opposing worldviews, are challenged to prove their worth and take up their parents' positions in a devious group who secretly run the world. LEGION #1 David Haller, the son of Professor Charles Xavier, has always had trouble containing the multiple personalities in his mind. And with each personality, comes a wild and dangerous mutant power. But now, a terrifying new personality is threatening to absorb these powers and take over David's mind and body. MEGA MAN MASTERMIX #1 In a world where humans and robots live and work together, six powerful robots have suddenly turned against their programming and set their sights on causing chaos and destruction! Only one heroic robot stands in their path - Mega Man, the greatest creation of Dr. Light! RAVEN DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS #1 Raven faces a new, otherworldly menace that is all too grounded in reality. Plus, Raven's personal life is in an uproar as her mother and aunt struggle for the soul of a Titan! It's up to Baron Winters of the Night Force to intercede on her behalf. VINEGAR TEETH #1 As a human being, Artie Buckle is a grade-A schmuck. But he's a pretty damn fine cop. Good thing, because Brick City is under siege from its citizenry and only an unlikely partnership with a mysterious, tentacled, extra-dimensional being can put an end to the escalating crime problem. See you soon!
We’re still in the embryonic stage of the new year, but there are always New Comics! And by ‘new’ we mean #1’s! STRANGERS IN PARADISE XXV #1 America's favorite couple is back! Francine and Katchoo are living the dream until they learn a former Parker Girl is in hiding and writing a tell-all book about the wicked empire Darcy Parker built with Katchoo at her side.

RWBY Never before revealed adventures of Team RWBY featuring Ruby, Weiss, Blake & Yang before academy and before they were teammates. Plus, a Team JNPR battle featuring a much-younger Jaune! ICE CREAM MAN #1 Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy...there's a flavor for everyone's misery. DAYS OF HATE #1 The United States of America, 2022. The loss that ripped them apart drove one into the arms of the police state and the other towards a guerrilla war against the white supremacy. Now they meet again. This is a story of a war. DAMAGE #1 (The New Age of DC Heroes) Tasked as the government's own living, breathing, ticking time bomb, Ethan retains no control when the monster takes over. Cheaper than a nuclear warhead and twice as effective, Ethan fights to rein in the damage he unleashes when the beast inside him springs free for one hour a day. FURTHER ADV OF NICK WILSON #1 For a few years in his early 20s, Nick Wilson had super powers and all the acclaim associated with them. When those powers vanished, so did his fame, sending him from national hero to late-night punchline. And by ‘new’ we also mean New This Week, like KILL OR BE KILLED #15 and KILL OR BE KILLED VOL 03, MIGHTY THOR #703, BATMAN #39, LEGEND OF KORRA VOL 02, RUMBLE #2, VENOM INC OMEGA, and so much more!
