hex wives vertigo

Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (HEX WIVES, CLANKILLERS, & VAGRANT QUEEN). 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.

Vagrant queen vault

VAGRANT QUEEN #5 – $3.99

Vault Comics – Magdalene Visaggio, Jason Smith, Harry Saxon, Zakk Saam, Tim Daniel

Deep inside forbidden space, Elida crash-lands on the planet Wix, an icy and treacherous planet. The journey across its surface to the Monastery that holds the Bezoar of Kings will be perilous. Good thing the local fauna isn’t filled with hyper-hallucinogenic venom or anything.


WAYWARD #30 – $4.99

Image Comics – Jim Zub, Steven Cummings, Tamra Bonvillain, Marshall Dillon, Zack Davisson

“BOUND TO FATE,” Conclusion
Fate burns as the past and present clash in the final battle.
WAYWARD concludes with a special double-sized spectacular that includes an epic 30-page story, pin-ups, and more!

Hex Wives #1 – $3.99

Vertigo Comics – Ben Blacker, Mirka Andolfo, Marissa Louise, Josh Reed, Jenny Frison

“The women are too powerful. They must be tamed.”
For hundreds of years a war has been waged between a coven of perpetually reincarnating witches and the all-male conspiracy known as the Architects. After the death of the lead Architect in 2005 it seemed the witches had finally defeated their foes.
Now, 13 years later, waking up in a perfect cookie cutter home at the end of a cul-de-sac in a sunny corner of suburbia, Isadora has no recollection of her past life as the leader of a witch coven, nor her soulmate Nadiya, let alone the centuries-old war she has waged in defence of the soul of America…

CLANKILLERS aftershock

CLANKILLERS #4 – $3.99

Aftershock Comics – Sean Lewis, Antonio Fuso, Stefano Simeone, Dave Sharpe

Like the demented stepchild of Game of Thrones, Braveheart and Mark Millar’s Kick Ass, CLANKILLERS brings readers into an ancient Ireland filled with clans, mystics, warriors and monsters of epic proportion! Finola finds herself deep behind enemy lines, while far-off Cillian is building an army to help her.
Bonds are tested, and the question of family fidelity comes to a crashing head in the fourth instalment.
