Wednesday is here, and new comics are within reach. So you may be like me and are still reading through the stack of comics from the last couple weeks, better make some room for these 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 have that special someone to buy extra comics for.

batman49Batman #49 – $3.99

Scott Snyder, Yanick Paquette, Nathan Fairbairn

It seems like forever age that Bruce Wayne stopped helming the cape and cowl, but with this issue we finally get to see Bruce become Batman once more. What better team to have on this unique story than Scott Snyder and guest artists Yanick Paquette and Nathan Fairbairn. This group of creators worked together on issues of Swamp Thing a couple years back, it was a personal favourite, which is why I’m excited to see this mini reunion. Do not miss this issue as the build up to the massive fiftieth issue nears.


constantine9Constantine The Hellblazer #9 – $2.99

Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV, Riley Rossmo, FCO Plascencia

The truth behind the magical chaos that has befallen New York City comes out when the demonic power player Neron casts John Constantine down into the fires of Hell itself, where our occult investigator has no shortage of enemies-including an infernal ex the Hellblazer hoped he’d never see again…


jughead4Jughead #4 – $2.99

Chip Zdarsky, Erica Henderson

Riverdale High has been taken over by a nefarious outside force! Or has it? It’s up to Jughead and Dilton to get proof, but can the mysterious Captain Slackbeard show the way? It’s adventure on the high seas and in the classroom for the gang! Yar!



welcomeback5We(l)come Back #5 – $3.99

Christopher Sebela, Claire Roe, Jonathan Brandon Sawyer, Jeremy Lawson, Jim Campbell
