Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (COLD WAR, BLOODSHOT, & GOOSEBUMPS). 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.
BLOODSHOT SALVATION #6 – $3.99
Valiant Entertainment – Jeff Lemire @JeffLemire, Renato Guedes @RenatoGuedes1, Kenneth Rocafort @Mitografia
ALL-NEW ARC! ALL-NEW JUMPING-ON POINT! “THE BOOK OF THE DEAD” – PART ONE!
Into the Deadside! Years ago, Project Rising Spirit’s cutting-edge nanite technology transformed Ray Garrison into the walking weapon codenamed Bloodshot. Now, those very same microscopic machines have infected his infant daughter’s physiology and threaten to destroy her from the inside out. As the life of an innocent hangs in the balance, Bloodshot will be forced to make an unimaginable decision: to watch the child he loves die, or to confront death itself…and strike a bargain for her safety. Now, with the supernatural heroes known as Shadowman and Dr. Mirage to guide him, Bloodshot is about to undertake an unreal journey into the demon-haunted dimension known as the Deadside to save a life…or sacrifice his own…
COLD WAR #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Christopher Sebela @xtop, Hayden Sherman @cleanlined
Panacea Cryonics offered its customers life after death by keeping their heads frozen until the day technology could rebuild them, free of disease and death. However, as these everyday people from the past are revived, they’re not handed the keys to a new life, but a gun, body armor and an ultimatum. They must fight in a war against unknown opponents for unknown reasons, to secure their place in a brave new world that doesn’t want them around.
