comics

Article by Gregg Katzman

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!
