Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (LITTLE BIRD, FAIRLADY, & LAST STOP ON RED LINE). 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.
LAST STOP ON RED LINE #1 – $3.99
Dark Horse Comics – Paul Maybury, Sam Lotfi, John Rauch, Adam Pruett

IMMORTAL HULK #17 – $3.99
Marvel Comics – Al Ewing, Joe Bennett, Alex Ross
• Bruce Banner is trapped inside Shadow Base Site A – powerless and hunted by their top assassin.
