Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (ANIMOSITY, GOOSEBUMPS & EXILES). 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.
ANIMOSITY EVOLUTION #5 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Marguerite Bennett @EvilMarguerite, Eric Gapstur @ericgapstur, Rob Schwager @robschwager, Marshall Dillon @MarshallDillon
Murder, intrigue, and men playing God in the seedy underbelly of the City by the Sea-a hapless refugee hunts for the truth in a noir crime world…

INTRODUCING THE ALL-NEW VALKYRIE!
DON’T BLINK – THE EXILES ARE BACK!
Fan-favorite X-Man Blink once joined a team destined to save not just the world, but the entire Multiverse. And now, her teleporting talents are needed once again! When a mysterious threat begins eating away at the fabric of the Multiverse, the Unseen – the man once known as Nick Fury who now can only observe Earth from a lofty post on the moon – must recruit a champion to save it. But she can’t do it alone. Who will join Blink’s new team – and can they ever go home again?
GOOSEBUMPS DOWNLOAD OR DIE #2 – $3.99
IDW Publishing – Jen Vaughn @TheJenya, Michelle Wong @lokhelle, Tiona Tree Farrell @Treestumped
Mitra’s new creepy phone is causing a rift between her and her friends-they just don’t believe it’s behind all the recent… disturbances. Is it too late to do a hard reset on her life?!
THE IMMORTAL MEN #1 – $2.99
DC Comics – James Tynion IV @JamesTheFourth, Jim Lee @JimLee, Ryan Benjamin @ryanbnjmn, Scott Williams @ScottW_inks, Richard Friend @Blasterkid, Alex Sinclair @Sincclolor
“THE END OF FOREVER” part one! There is a secret history to the DC Universe of heroes who have protected humanity from the shadows since the dawn of time…and who can live forever. Enter the Immortal Men! The team, headed by the Immortal Man, has waged a secret war against the House of Conquest for countless years-but Conquest has dealt a devastating blow. When their base of operations, known as the Campus, is savagely attacked, the Immortal Men must seek out their last hope-an emerging metahuman known as Caden Park! Caden’s emerging powers may be able to ensure the Immortal Men’s survival-but will Conquest get to him first?
LARK’S KILLER #6 – $3.99
Devils Due/1First Comics – Bill Willingham @BillWillingham, Travis Moore @TravisGMoore
Wrapping up the first Lark’s Killer storyline, the assassin Hala is flat on her back and at Lark’s mercy – but it remains to be seen if Lark has any mercy to give. After all, all we really know about the street rat so far is that she’s a thief and a runaway. Who knows? Maybe she’ll surprise us. In the meantime, Brenar concludes his duel to the death with Jolly Boy, quickly coming to the same conclusion Jolly Boy had, which is Brenar’s no match for him. All this, and a return of the drunken wizard. Isn’t that exciting?
