Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (MARTIAN MANHUNTER, EUTHANAUTS, & MURDER FALCON). 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.


EUTHANAUTS #5 – $3.99

Black Crown Publishing – Tini Howard, Nick Robles, Eva da la Cruz, Neil Uyetake, Marley Zarcone

Thalia has learned that you don’t get to the afterlife without breaking a few eggs and planting a few seeds. In this issue-people die. Some of them stay quiet about it. When the ego is destroyed, what remains? Find out in the final issue of our first arc, Ground Control.


BLACKBIRD #4 – $3.99

Image Comics – Sam Humphries, Jen Bartel, Paul Reinwand, Triona Farrell, Jodi Wynne, Sana Takeda

• Miles is getting closer to solving the mystery of the thievery ring plaguing Brooklyn, but the Rhino has complicated matters quite a lot.
