Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (LITTLE BIRD & SARA AND THE ROYAL STARS). 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.
SARA AND THE ROYAL STARS #1 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Jon Tsuei, Audrey Mok, Raul Angulo, Jim Campbell
Civil war rages in the Empire of Parsa, and famine has struck. As the seasons refuse to turn, Princess Sera receives a vision from the deity Mitra telling her to find the Royal Stars and restore them to the heavens. Despite her kingdom and her troops’ need of her command, Sera embarks on a quest to find the fallen stars–now trapped on earth–and save her people from dearth and death.

They’ve hit him, cut him, and shot him full of arrows, but the Headtaker refuses to go down!

And, even if they achieve victory, time is still running out for Auros in the dungeons of Ordz – if our heroes fail, his head is sure to fall to the edge of the Wailing Blade. The Windcleavers hatch a plan that will either save, or damn them.
