Another new comic book day is here! This week doesn’t have much to offer in the way of standout new comic titles, but there are some new arcs starting in Marvel and some big arcs wrapping up in DC. Below are some highlights to look for at your LCS this week:
After recovering from a brutal battle with Hammerhead, Miles and Co. are stressed. His family doesn’t know what danger he’s in, his friends ask if he should change the course of his super hero career. Things are rough. Last issue left off with a beautiful bit of calm reflection and character development as Miles and Ganke discuss whether or not the second Spider-Man even needs to exist.
There might be even more questions when Spider-Man gets arrested.
The Walking Dead #171
Last issue started a new phase of The Walking Dead, focusing less on the Alexandria survivors and more on those who have left to explore the rest of the post-apocalypse.
Enter: Princess. Who is she and what does she want?
Bombshells United #1
The Bombshells are back in an all-new series! As our new tale begins, the year is 1943, and Wonder Woman is called to Arizona for help by two young girls named Cassie Sandsmark and Donna Troy! The girls’ friends and families are being displaced from their homes and forced into internment camps! To save them, can Wonder Woman fight against the same people she once fought alongside?
Captain Phasma #1
As the excitement ramps up for this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, come back with us to the final moments of The Force Awakens and the destruction of Starkiller Base to learn the fate of Captain Phasma! Captured by the Resistance and thrown into a garbage masher, we follow the chrome-adorned warrior from the site of the First Order’s biggest defeat to the doorstep of this holiday season’s biggest blockbuster!
During a routine battle with the villainous Jack O’Lantern, Venom finds himself transported to a far-off world and learns a terrible truth – a deadly new species called the Poisons has emerged from the vastness of space, and to make matters worse, they’re hunting Venoms! Trapped on the planet’s surface with a ragtag band of Venomized heroes, Eddie has no choice but to mount a counteroffensive and hope to find a way home!
