There are a lot of great comic book series out there, and they all stick in your memory for totally different reasons. Some of them will make you think about important and topical issues, while others do a brilliant job with drama and emotion. Some comics, however, focus on keeping a smile on your face the entire time. Well, Skottie Young and Jean-Francois Beaulieu’s I Hate Fairyland is definitely one of those comics that aims to make you grin. This Image Comics title is so impressively fun that I can’t stop smiling and laughing whenever I read a new chapter. Every issue is overflowing with creativity and such enjoyable silliness. So, it should come as no surprise that the seventh issue – which, at the time of this writing, goes on sale tomorrow – continued to remind me why I love this beautiful, clever, and hilarious series so very much.

Another Wednesday, another wave of excellent new comics! Every addition of new comic book day is worth looking forward to, but there really is a lot to get excited about this week. Marvel’s dropping Old Man Logan #4, Vertigo’s releasing Sheriff of Babylon #5, and, of course, DC has given the world the Wonder Woman: Earth One graphic novel. There are plenty of comics that are more than worthy of your time (see above for the full list), but there are also five #1 issues that we really enjoyed, so we want to make sure they’re on your radar. So, we’re about to briefly explain why you should give these new comics a chance. If the title sounds like a good time to you, go give it a shot. If not, maybe the next one will win you over! Either way, we hope you enjoy reading at least one comic this week!
Every single Wednesday, something amazing happens: new and magnificent comics go on sale! From space adventures to lighthearted tales, there’s always something for everyone to enjoy. The full list of new releases is pretty ginormous (click here to see everything that’s on sale). Because there are so many options to choose from, we’d love to give you a helping hand. Each week, we’re going to put two exciting comics from several publishers right in the spotlight. After you see what we recommend purchasing, visit the comments and share which comics you’re picking up!
