‘Tis the last Wednesday before Christmas, with more new comics to buy. But so many choices, readers may want to cry. Fear not internet friend, Fox Force Five has your back. With an excellent list, so you will not lose track.

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.


BACKWAYS #1 – $3.99

Aftershock Comics – Justin Jordan, Eleonora Carlini, Silvie Tidei, Marshall Dillon, Ben Templesmith

There is a hidden nation. A nation of magic and madness, one that exists in all the forgotten spaces. Your basement, your attic, the haunted house down the street, anyone of those might be a part of the Backways.
Anna Merrick lost someone in the Backways, and she’ll stop at NOTHING to get them back. Even if it means unleashing something unimaginable.
From Justin Jordan (STRAYER, Green Lantern: New Guardians) and Eleonora Carlini (Batgirl, Doctor Who) comes the BRAND NEW series of magic, mystery and mayhem that is sure to appeal to fans of Harry Potter & The Chronicles of Narnia!


CENTIPEDE #5 – $3.99

Dynamite Entertainment – Max Bemis, Eoin Marron, Chris O’Halloran, Taylor Esposito, Francesco Francavilla

It’s the Marvel Universe reunion you’ve all been waiting for (well, HALF of it, at least!).

THE REALM #4 – $3.99

QUANTUM & WOODY #1 – $3.99

Valiant Entertainment – Daniel Kibblesmith, Kano, Geoff Shawquantum&woody valiant

THE WORLD’S WORST SUPERHERO TEAM RETURNS IN AN EXPLOSIVE NEW ONGOING SERIES! This December, deeply alarming and untrustworthy writer Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and eyepopping artist Kano (Daredevil) give the Valiant Universe the adjective-worthy superheroes it deserves: QUANTUM AND WOODY!
Sometimes…you embrace your destiny. And sometimes…you and your troublemaking adopted brother find yourselves trapped in a scientific lab explosion that grants you $@&%ing awesome superpowers. As a result of their accident, Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – must “klang” their wristbands together every 24 hours or both dissipate into nothingness. Which makes superhero-ing pretty awkward when you’re not on speaking terms at the moment. See, Eric has been keeping a pretty big secret: He knows who Woody’s birth father really is…and where he’s been hiding all these years.
With great power comes great sibling rivalry! This winter, you’ll believe two men and one goat can split a one bedroom apartment and still be a credible threat to evil and injustice everywhere when QUANTUM AND WOODY make headlines and take names!

Extra Pulls: Batman #37, Metal #4, Redlands #5, Doctor Strange #383, Venom #159
