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.

alienbountyhunter1Alien Bounty Hunter #1 – $3.99

Vault Comics – Adrian Wassel, Bavid M. Booher, Nick Robles, Deron Bennett, Tim Daniel

Ben Madsen is a bounty hunter from Arcadia. Yeah, he knows how that sounds, but the job has its perks. He’s got time to take care of his aunt, a community that loves him, and the transition from USMS made sense. Following a newsworthy takedown, Madsen is offered a bail he can’t ignore. It’s attached to a ridiculously dangerous-sounding fugitive, but aren’t they always? Unfortunately for Madsen, his mark is not from Arcadia, and the city he’ll be tracking him through… well, nobody knows it exists. Penned by award-winning writer Adrian Wassel (The Gifted) & David M. Booher (Powerless) with art by Nick Robles (Clockwork Angels), Vault Comics brings you an original sci-fi franchise, produced by Mark Wahlberg and created by Stephen Levinson.
