Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN & MIDNIGHT VISTA). 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.

 something killing the children


BOOM! Studios – James Tynion IV, Werther Dell’Edera, Miquel Muerto, Jenny Frison

When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories-impossible stories of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.
Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to see what they can see.
Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it MUST be done.

midnight vista


Aftershock Comics – Eliot Rahal, Clara Meath, Mark Englert, Taylor Esposito, Juan Doe

Oliver Flores and his stepfather, Nomar Perez, were turning right onto Midnight Vista Road when they were both abducted by aliens. To Oliver’s mother, they were both just missing. To the police, they were declared legally dead. And to everyone else growing up in Albuquerque, Oliver Flores was the “Milk Carton Kid”. His life was the cautionary tale of an eight-year-old who was kidnapped and killed by his stepdad while out for some ice cream. But now – years later – a fully grown adult Oliver walks back into town. He has been returned…and he remembers everything.
