Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (HEIST & STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN). 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.
HEIST, OR HOW TO STEAL A PLANET #1 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Paul Tobin, Arjuna Susini, Vittorio Astone, Saida Temofonte
Welcome to planet Heist! It’s the cutthroat capital of the entire Nehring System, home to billions of the worst men and women in the galaxy. The Pan-Galactic government has no idea what to do with the planet, but conman Glane Breld and his band of thieves know exactly what to do with Heist-they’re going to steal it. It’s Ocean’s Eleven in space, brought to you by writer Paul Tobin (Colder and Bandette) and Arjuna Susini (The Replacer)-the only minds crazy enough to steal an entire world.
STRANGE SKIES OVER EAST BERLIN #2 – $3.99
BOOM! Studios – Jeff Loveness, Lisandro Estherren, Patricio Delpeche, Evan Cagle
The danger increases as Herring comes face to face with his nemesis, Keiner! Herring has infiltrated the bunker beneath East Berlin, where research on the mysterious being that fell from the sky has already begun, only to find an old enemy already inside. As the monster’s true powers begin to emerge, can Herring keep his cover disguised from Keiner long enough to discover what is truly hidden in the bunker?
UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #1 – $3.99
Image Comics – Scott Snyder, Charles Soule, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Daniele Orlandini, Matt Wilson, Crank!, Jock
In this special oversized first issue, readers will journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America-a land that’s become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!
THE ELECTRIC BLACK #3 – $3.99
Scout Comics – Joseph Schmalke, Rich Woodall
The Electric Black, a cursed antique shop, appearing in any time or space, soliciting customers it hungers to corrupt or devour. Michael Cloven, leader of a misguided Satanic cult, summons The Electric Black to a cemetery in present-day New Orleans. Cloven seeks the Black Ledger, an unholy tome that will grant them god-like powers. Little do they know, the sinister curiosity shop has a will of its own and doesn’t like uninvited guests. Proprietor Julius Black and his employees, June Bug and Jack, unleash the shop’s horrors upon the cult members in a night they will not live to regret!
NO ONE LEFT TO FIGHT #5 – $3.99

It’s the final issue of The Comic You Always Wanted, and it turns out that there is someone left to fight. From Aubrey Sitterson (The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling, G.I. Joe) & Fico Ossio (Spider-Man, Revolution), the year’s hottest new book reaches its explosive, action-packed conclusion, with its heroes squaring off against a massive threat from their past, a monster they thought long vanquished.
