Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (BLACKBIRD, FEARSCAPE, & ANIMOSITY). 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.
FEARSCAPE #2 – $3.99
Vault Comics – Ryan O’Sullivan, Andrea Mutti, Vlad Popov, Andworld
Heroic plagiarist Henry Henry faces his first trial in the Fearscape! Within The Weeping Castle, home to The Children of Prometheus, Henry Henry encounters wondrous and fanciful creatures-including The First Fear. With courage and calm, he endures the heart of darkness, refusing the easy temptation of light. No Legs can outrun-no Mind can outwit-no Heart can outlove our hero.
BLACKBIRD #2 – $3.99
Image Comics – Sam Humphries, Jen Bartel, Paul Reinwand, Triona Farell, Jodi Wynne, Dylan Todd
The Great Beast has kidnapped Nina’s sister and the only way to find her is to follow a trail of magic gems, hidden symbols, and a handsome stranger. Can he put Nina onto the trail of the mystic creature she’s after?
THE GREEN LANTERN #1 – $4.99
DC Comics – Grant Morrison, Liam Sharp, Steve Oliff, Frank Quitely
Superstar writer Grant Morrison (Batman, All-Star Superman) returns to DC alongside red-hot artist Liam Sharp (The Brave AND the Bold, Wonder Woman) to launch a new, ongoing series: THE GREEN LANTERN!
In this debut issue, when Earth’s space cop, Hal Jordan, encounters an alien hiding in plain sight, it sets off a chain of events that rocks the Green Lantern Corps-and quite possibly the Multiverse at large-to its very core. There’s an inter-galactic conspiracy afoot, as well as a traitor in the GL Corps’ ranks, so strap in for more mind-bending adventures in this masterpiece in the making.
ANIMOSITY #17 – $3.99
Aftershock Comics – Marguerite Bennet, Rafael de Latorre, Rob Schwager, Marshall Dillon, Marcelo Maiolo

MARVEL KNIGHTS 20TH #1 – $4.99
Marvel Comics – Donny Cates, Travel Foreman, Derek Fridolfs, Matt Milla, Mike Deodato
In celebration of the legendary imprint founded by Marvel’s CCO Joe Quesada, a new crop of talent stands poised to tell a groundbreaking story across the Marvel Universe!
In the cemetery, the blind man does not know who he is, or why he has come to this particular grave at this moment.
He doesn’t know the burly police officer with the wild story who has approached him.
Or the strangely intense man who sits in the rear seat of the patrol car, his eyes flashing green.
But all of that is about to change.
Because Matt Murdock is beginning to remember…
In a colorless world without heroes, the spark of light…must come from the dark…
