Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (CURSE WORDS, BEASTS OF BURDEN & WASTED SPACE). 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.
BEASTS OF BURDEN #1 – $3.99
Dark Horse Comics – Evan Dorkin, Benjamin Dewey, Nate Piekos
A heroic pack of canines known as the Wise Dogs set off on a mission to clean up a Pennsylvania corridor plagued by seemingly unrelated occult disturbances that include a fire salamander and a horde of mutant lurkers. A link is found among the various disturbances, leading our heroes to a mountain village inhabited by a survivalist witch-cult who have discovered the existence of a “Blood Lure” attracting occult forces, creatures, and many more terrors to Burden Hill!
CURSE WORDS SUMMER SPECIAL #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Charles Soule, Joe Quinones, Ryan Browne

QUANTUM & WOODY #9 – $3.99
Valiant Entertainment– Eliot Rahal, Joe Eisma, Geoff Shaw
Breaking up is hard to do! For Eric and Woody Henderson – adopted brothers, partners, and the erstwhile superhero twosome known as Quantum and Woody – the world has just turned upside down! Usually, they can’t stand to be near one another… Now, they literally can’t be – or their powers go on the fritz! That definitely makes being a “duo” difficult, especially when a perilous new threat is teaching you just how bad you are at superhero-ing solo! Acclaimed writer Eliot Rahal (The Paybacks) and Eisner Award nominee Joe Eisma (Archie) divide the world’s worst superhero team in two as “SEPARATION ANXIETY” continues!
