Wednesday is nearly here, and new comics are within reach. So you may be like me and still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but here is a list of new titles I will be picking up at my local comic shop.

Like many I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult with the vast amount of quality books being published currently. So here are 5 titles worth looking into this week, and a couple honorary mentions for those that don’t live up here in the Great White North, and have to pay an additional 40% on cover price.

bloodshot10Bloodshot Reborn #10 – $3.99

Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa

Many years from now, Los Angeles has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland and the once unstoppable killing machine known as BLOODSHOT has become THE ANALOG MAN. Hopelessly outdated, Bloodshot’s taken on a new role as the protector of a small town, eking out a subsistence existence with the great love of his life – Magic – and protecting a group of stragglers who’ve weathered the storm. But when a gang of marauders arrives, the settlement’s survival is threatened, and Bloodshot is forced to bring justice to the distorted and disjointed badlands of the Valiant Universe! Blockbuster artist Lewis LaRosa joins New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire for a gasoline-soaked storyline two years in the making right here for “THE ANALOG MAN”!

cryhavoc1Cry Havoc #1 – $3.99

Simon Spurrier, Ryan Kelly, Matt Wilson, Lee Loughridge, Nick Filardi, Simon Bowland, Emma Price

X-Men Legacy writer SIMON SPURRIER and superstar artist RYAN KELLY present fiends, fragility, and firepower in an all-new series, mixing the hard-boiled militaria of Jarhead with the dark folklore of Pan’s Labyrinth. Includes an unprecedented use of multiple colorists (MATT WILSON, LEE LOUGHRIDGE, & NICK FILARDI) to define the story’s threads, and an incredible variant cover by Eisner Award winner CAMERON STEWART. This is not the tale of a lesbian werewolf who goes to war. Except it kind of is.

oldmanlogan1Old Man Logan #1 – $4.99

Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino

Fifty years from now, Logan — the man who no longer calls himself Wolverine — will have endured many atrocities: The Marvel Universe’s villains will have banded together and rid the world of its heroes. Logan’s closest friend, Hawkeye, will have been murdered in cold blood right before his eyes. And driven mad by the same radiation that gave him his superhuman strength, Bruce Banner will have fathered a family of hillbilly Hulks…that eventually went on to slaughter Logan’s wife and two children. But now, in the present, Old Man Logan wakes up to discover himself in a world before these atrocities, before the Wasteland. And he’s going to seize this opportunity and change history to ensure that his future never comes to pass…

saga3Saga #33 – $2.99

Brian K. Vaughan, Fiona Staples

Upsher and Doff are back on the case. The Eisner Award winning powerhouse duo of Vaughan and Staples continues to churn out gold with Saga. Vaughan recently mentioned via Twitter that #33 has a Museum ready cover and he’s not wrong. Staples is one of the finest artists on the planet.


strayer1Strayer #1 – $3.99

Justin Jordan. Juan Gedeon, Tamra Bonvillain, Rachel Deering

The world is full of monsters.  Strayer kills them, but, of course, for a small fee… Nothing is free.
Mala does magic of a sort… sometimes when she wants, sometimes not… She may be the only one who can save the world and Strayer is going to help her… whether he likes it or not…
From the popular creators behind the Luther Strode trilogy, Spread, and Ghost Racers.

Extra pulls: Batman & Robin Eternal #17, Black Canary #7, Daredevil #3, Rick & Morty #10, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #4
