Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (LOST CITY EXPLORERS, KROMBOPULOS MICHAEL & GOD COMPLEX). 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.
DEATHBED #5 – $3.99
Veritgo Comics – Joshua Williamson, Riley Rossmo, Ivan Plascencia, Deron Bennett
What do you want to be when you grow up? For Antonio Luna… it was everything. He wanted to do it all, so he became a race car driver, a masked wrestler, an artist, a baseball player, a spy and countless other careers. But there was one life goal he never fulfilled… the one that got away. Now, for Luna to solve the mystery of who killed his friends and family, he will have to voyage to the one place he swore he never would return to and achieve his long-lost dream… even if it kills him.
GOD COMPLEX #6 – $3.99
Image Comics – Paul Jenkins, Hendry Prasetya, Bryan Lie
END OF STORY ARC
Far beneath Delphi, Seneca’s investigation leads him into a secret labyrinth that guards a centuries-old secret-but the hidden treasures beneath the city are insignificant next to the danger they present. Here, Seneca will learn the truth of his existence and find answers to the mysteries of the Rulers and the Trinity…but the price he pays may be too much to endure.
