There is nothing quite like New Comic Book Day! It wouldn’t be a Wednesday without new comics like HEAVY & STILLWATER.

If you are a reader like me, that TBR (to be read) pile of comics continues to grow. If that isn’t enough to stop you from checking out new releases, here is my list of Top 5 Comics out this week.

Bill is a Heavy, whose job is policing the multiverse, making sure bad eggs get what’s coming to them. He’s on track to earn his Climb and reunite with the woman he loves… until he meets his new partner: the worst dude of all time.
