Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (DIE, MORNING IN AMERICA, & MEET THE SKRULLS). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.
DIE #4 – $3.99
Image Comics – Kieron Gillen, Stephanie Hans, Clayton Cowles, Christian Ward
Reunions and betrayals! Our reckless heroes stage a rescue mission to save Rex-and secure the nuke still threatening to kill everyone. Along the way, Billy and Molly make a pit stop at a galactic gas station, where they discover brain-freezes and morality, and past demons catch up to Dust and Fury.
UNNATURAL #8 – $3.99
Image Comics – Mirka Andolfo, Gianluca Papi, Fabio Amelia, Alessandro Gucciardo, Joe Madureira
As we move toward the shocking final arc of MIRKA ANDOLFO’s bestselling series, we explore the roots of UNNATURAL’s mythology. What’s the secret nesting in Leslie’s blood? And will she be strong enough to face the savage curse running in her own veins? A word of advice: stay away from spoilers as this issue’s final page will likely blow your mind!

WHO DO YOU TRUST?
The Warners are your typical family. Dad works at Stark. Mom works in a senator’s office. Jennifer and Alice are students at Stamford High School.

Robbie Thompson (SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL) and Niko Henrichon (DOCTOR STRANGE, Pride of Baghdad) bring the Marvel Universe down to earth with a bold new look at the Skrulls that will test even YOUR loyalty.
