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. The goal of this list is to highlight ten comic books that are worth checking out for this week.
This is the way the list works: I tend to add more books that ARE new reader than those that are NOT. But usually, it’s just a list of books I’m excited for. And you should be too.
Honestly, all that matters this week is KC Green and Allison Strejiau‘s “Regular Show” #1. Oh, and how can I forget about Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore‘s “The Legend of Luther Strode” #5.
Alrighty then, how about that list…
[Honorable Mention] Wonder Woman #20

10. The Legend of Luther Strode #5
Luther has been Bound. Petra has become Jack’s new friend. Binder gets a surprise from an unexpected source. And the world burns down around them all
9. The Shadow #13
A grisly string of random murders has left the authorities baffled, but The Shadow believes there is method to the killer’s madness.
