There is nothing quite like New Comic Book Day! It wouldn’t be a Wednesday without new comics like GETTING IT TOGETHER & LONELY RECEIVER.
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.
LONELY RECEIVER #2 -$3.99
Publisher – Aftershock Comics
Creators – Zac Thompson, Jen Hickman, Simon Bowland
As she reels from a breakup with her phone, Catrin’s life spins out of control. Every-thing about her existence was connected to her partner. Now she has no money, no ID, and no way to engage with the world. She’s drifting alone in a sea of connection, except for the pair of disembodied eyes watching her…
A week / of hours /
// wasted in // wait here
The eyes // in my wall //
/ Hate // they appear.

Newcomer artist JENNY D. FINE shines alongside Marvel Comics’ Iceman writer SINA GRACE and co-creator OMAR SPAHI in the all-new modern dramedy you didn’t know you needed! Sam and Jack are best friends, and Sam is dating Lauren, Jack’s indie rocker sister and roommate. When Sam and Lauren open up their long-term relationship, skyrocketing tensions send social shockwaves through their friend group and the entire Bay Area. And Jack, caught in the middle of it all, may be forced to take sides in a conflict he never wanted to be a part of. Life gets pretty messy when you’re in your 20s and your friends are your family.
