Hello Comic Book Fandom:
Each week Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, and others release comic books every Wednesday and sometimes fantastic comic books get lost in the shuffle. This list will highlight ten comic books that are worth checking out for this week.
Some comic books might be a great jumping on point, others are one-and-done stories, or some are just worth the price of admission.
This week, Robert Kirkman continues setting up something big with “The Walking Dead” #109, Jason Aaron‘s “Thor: God of Thunder” #7 starts up with new story arc with “GODBOMB,” Dustin Nguyen‘s (digital first) “Batman Li’l Gotham” finally hit shelves with its first issue, along with a sweet Chris Burnham (Batman, Incorporated) variant cover, and Matt Fraction‘s “Hawkeye” continues being the best thing coming out of Marvel right now.
So, how about that list…
