Wednesday is here, and new comics are within our 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 have to show some extra love for that Valentine comic reader you may have forgotten about.
Archie #6 – $3.99
Mark Waid, Veronica Fish
Archie and Jughead are on the outs with each other, and now Archie has no one to help him against the fury that is Hiram Lodge! Not even Veronica wants to go up against her own father! Rising star comics artist Veronica Fish (Howard the Duck, the Riverdale CW promo image) joins the legendary Mark Waid for another brand new issue of the hit series!
Devolution #2 – $3.99
Rick Remender, Jonathan Wayshak, Jordan Boyd, Jae Lee
The road to salvation is lined with Nazi hillbillies and Neanderthals. Raja finds that trusting people is a bad idea. Check out the thrilling new series that Rick Remender (Black Science, Deadly Class) describes as “a heavy dose of high-octane action, character drama, a world of strange reverse mutations, and social commentary – as we follow the last tribe of humans inoculated from the devolution agent as they set out on a desperate journey to try to find a way to re-evolve life on Earth.”
Sex Criminals #14 – $3.50
Matt Fraction, Chip Zdarsky
Why can’t we all just get along? Because then the comic would be boring.
Snowfall #1 – $3.99
Joe Harris, Martin Morazzo, Kelly Fitzpatrick, Michael Davis Thomas, Tom Muller
Writer JOE HARRIS (The X-Files) and artist MARTÍN MORAZZO (Vertigo Quarterly), creators of GREAT PACIFIC, reunite for a brand new ongoing science-fiction series and an OVERSIZED DEBUT ISSUE featuring thirty-two pages of story!
In the year 2045 it no longer snows. A catastrophic crash has left the climate ravaged, society splintered, and the newly-christened “Cooperative States of America” propped up and administered by the powerful Hazeltyne Corporation. Only one man wages an all-out weather war against the system, wielding the forces of nature themselves as weapons. He is the White Wizard. The ghost in the night. Genius. Terrorist. Outlaw. Hero?
Star Wars #16 – $3.99
Jason Aaron, Leinil Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, Sunny Gho, Chris Eliopoulos
