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.
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 #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.
AVENGERS HALLOWEEN SPECIAL #1 – $4.99
Marvel Comics – Rob Fee, Eoin Marron, Mike Spicer, Gerry Duggan, Laura Braga, Arif Prianto, Jen & Sylvia Soska, Jonas Scharf, Jordan Byd, Jay Baruchel, Luca Pizzari, Michael Garland, Robbie Thompson, Bob Quinn, Cris Peter, Geoff Shaw
