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.
Batman #21 – $3.99

“THE BUTTON” part one! The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall. What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party-and it’s not who anyone suspects! It’s a mystery woven through time, and the ticking clock starts here!
Failsafe #1 – $3.99
Vault Comics – F.J. Desanto, Todd Farmer, Federico Dallocchio, Travis Lanham, Jon Adams
When he executed the last nanotech-enhanced super soldier, John Ravane thought that was the end of the haywire Insurgence Program.

As sleeper agents scattered throughout the country activate, Ravane must stand between a government he cannot trust and the soldiers he once hunted.
The Few #4 – $4.99

After a battle with Herrod’s Cult and Palace soldiers, Hale and Colum’s men retreat to the woods to regroup. Their plan becomes less running, more fighting. Lives are lost and secrets unfold in the continuation of this sci-fi epic.
Redneck #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, Dee Cunniffe
The Bowmans are VAMPIRES who have quietly run the local barbecue joint in their small town for years, living off cow’s blood. Their peaceful coexistence ends as generations of hate, fear, and bad blood bubble to the surface–making it impossible to separate man from monster!
Critically acclaimed writer DONNY CATES (GOD COUNTRY) and artist LISANDRO ESTHERREN serve up the tale of a DIFFERENT kind of family just trying to get by, deep in the heart of Texas.
World Reader #1 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Jeff Loveness, Juan Doe, Rachel Deering
Meet Sarah, an astronaut traveling from dead planet to dead planet, talking to the ghosts of the dead worlds… as she fights to discover the secret that’s killing the universe. But Death doesn’t give up its secrets so easily, and as Death hunts her from planet to planet, Sarah struggles to maintain the trust of her crew and her own sanity in the endless ocean of lives. Every world has a story, and if she can find the secret tying them all together, she can save Earth from being the next world to die. From GROOT and THE JIMMY KIMMEL SHOW writer Jeff Loveness and AMERICAN MONSTER, ANIMOSITY: THE RISE artist Juan Doe, comes the chilling, epic new series that will be sure to appeal to fans of THE ARRIVAL, INTERSTELLAR, and THE EXPANSE.
