Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (ARCHANGEL 8 & UNDONE BY BLOOD). You may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. With the current situation you may want to safe this list of books for your next visit to your 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.

Max is a family man seeking a more interesting life. While conducting a new experiment at work, the fabric of his reality is torn before his eyes, and a robotic figure appears, claiming to be his 277-year-old self. The robot is able to “X-Ray” multiple dimensions and battles a nihilistic entity from another dimension who wants to take all life to its “Pre-Big Bang” status.
