NEW for Wed 08/31/22

This week is what’s called a “Fifth Week” in comics, when a month has 5 Wednesdays instead of the usual 4. That means a lesser output and a reliance on special issues. For example, this week DC Comics has all Annuals and Specials aside from a regular issue of Sandman Universe Nightmare Country. That’s what we’re talking about.

But fear not, Marvel Comics more than makes up for that perceived dearth of new comics with the 72-page AMAZING FANTASY #1000! Featuring Neil Gaiman, Jonathan Hickman, Marco Checchetto and lots more! Just don’t ask to see the math on how they got to #1000…

Get this—there are NO non-DC/Marvel #1’s this week (save for a new Power Rangers one-shot, if that even counts). How rare! Heck, there are barely even any DC/Marvel #1's. You know it's a slower week when Marvel only has 2!!

And here’s a quick few changes to this weekly list… we’re renaming the GRAPHIC NOVELS section to BOOKS, and we’re breaking MANGA books out into their own category!

Okay week, let’s get to it!!
