Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics. 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.
Godshaper #1 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Simon Spurrier, Jonas Goonface, Colin Bell, Kelsey Dieterich
Written by Eisner Award-nominated writer Simon Spurrier (The Spire, X-Men Legacy) and illustrated by breakout talent Jonas Goonface, Godshaper introduces a vast world where there’s a god for every person and a person for every god…though for Ennay, unfortunately exceptions may apply. People like him are Godshapers, godless social pariahs with the ability to mold and shape the gods of others. Paired with Bud, an off-kilter but affectionate god without a human, the two travel from town to town looking for shelter, a hot meal, and the next paying rock ‘n’ roll gig.
Grass Kings #2 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Matt Kindt, Tyler Jenkins
Robert takes in the mysterious woman from the lake and opens up to her about his missing daughter… a daughter that would be about the same age as the woman in front of him.
Heathen #3 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Natasha Alterici, Rachel Deering, Tess Fowler
Things haven’t quite gone as Aydis planned. She’s been kidnapped. By the goddess Freya. And she’s trapped in the impenetrable stronghold of the Valkyries. Escape seems impossible. It’s hard enough just resisting Freya’s spell. Roles now reversed, Brynhild plans a rescue, with help from Saga and a very old friend.

IDW Publishing – Fabian Rangel, Warick Johnson-Cadwell, Nic J Shaw, Dylan Todd
