Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (ANIMOSITY, QUANTUM & WOODY, & REACTOR). 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.

Brenar and Lark escape by throwing away the other sunglasses. Lark is despondent, because she realizes killers are still after her. Lark asks Brenar to teach her to fight. Brenar says no. “If I teach you to fight, it’ll make my job harder.” Brenar gives her a Buck Up And Get Strong speech. Brenar takes them to a new town, where he knows a sorcerer who might be able to help them figure out what’s going on. As a price for the sorcerer’s help, Brenar has to fight a duel. Brenar fights a duel.

quantum woody valiant

QUANTUM & WOODY #2 – $3.99

Valiant Entertainment – Daniel Kibblesmith (@kibblesmith), Kano, Dave Sharpe (@daveLsharpe), Geoff Shaw (@GeoffShaw12)
The must-read superhero-action-family-drama-buddy-comedy throwdown of 2018! It’s the ones you love that hurt you the most…and, in the case of super-powered adoptive brothers Eric and Woody Henderson – aka Quantum and Woody – this is defi nitely going to leave a mark! Quantum has kept the truth about Woody’s biological father a secret, and now that Woody has found out about his brother’s betrayal, their once-promising superhero career has ground to a standstill. So now it’s time for one last shot at teaming up as our heroes head “down under” – ahem, to Australia – in search of Woody’s one true DNA match. Like father, like son? Let’s hope not. You’ll believe two men and a goat can fl y coach when the new adventures of the world’s worst superhero team continue with a slightly less collectible second issue from rising star Daniel Kibblesmith (The Late Show With Stephen Colbert) and dazzling artist extraordinaire Kano (Daredevil)!
