It’s the unofficial start of summer! It’s the last week of a 5-Wednesday month. It’s a great time to be a comics fan! BITCH PLANET VOL 2 is finally out! We know you’ve been waiting a long time for this book, and it’s finally coming out! Some other great graphic novels for the week include DOOM PATROL VOL 1, HAWKEYE VOL 1 (Kate Bishop), and Jillian Tamaki’s BOUNDLESS! Single issues of note this week include KILL OR BE KILLED #9, SECRET EMPIRE #3, SAGA #43, CABLE #1, HULK #6 and Ted Naifeh’s first super-hero comics, HEROINES #1. Can’t wait to see what June brings!
Welcome! Hello. That bit was the introduction. This next part is where we highlight some of this week’s most-intriguing comics. Comics such as VICTOR LAVALLE DESTROYER #1 (think of it as a present day sequel to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein), CAPTAIN AMERICA STEVE ROGERS #17 (more Secret Empire happenings), ARCHIES ONE SHOT (with a cover by Jaime Hernandez), VENOM #150 (Eddie Brock is back!), SAUCER STATE #1 (the sequel to Vertigo’s Saucer County), REDNECK #2 (like Southern Bastards, but with vampires), MOONSHINE VOL 1 (Prohibition + werewolves), JASON: ON THE CAMINO (brand new Jason goodness!!), and the UNWORTHY THOR collection. And now this is the end of the paragraph.
Get ready for the new format! This list has changed to reflect the way we now rack our comic books on the shelves! We now have a dedicated New Release Wall, and everything is listed by Title! It’s now so much easier to find exactly what you’re looking for. And hopefully you’re looking for books like… GENERATION X #1! SECRET EMPIRE #2! FLASH #22 (“The Button” Conclusion)! KIM REAPER #2 (#1 was so fun!!)! YO-KAI WATCH #1 (yeah!)! LUKE CAGE #1! SUPER SONS #4! And STREET FIGHTER VS DARKSTALKERS #1! And don’t forget all the TWIN PEAKS POP VINYLS!
You know, comics just keep getting better! This week we get REGRESSION #1, a brand new Cullen Bunn horror title from Image. We get Mike Allred’s love letter to Jack Kirby in DC’s BUG THE ADVENTURES OF FORAGER #1. We get the first chapter of “The Lazarus Contract” in TITANS #11, also featuring Deathstroke and the Teen Titans. There’s also MISFIT CITY #1, a really fun book about a town were a Goonies-like movie was filmed and the weird goings on that causes to this day. There’s also GRASS KINGS #3 and GODSHAPER #2, new issues of both of those captivating new series. FIX #9 picks up right after the second Fix collection. And there’s a brand new Star Wars/Doctor Aphra crossover, STAR WARS SCREAMING CITADEL #1. See? All big books; no whammies.
