Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. I’ve also included a list of Trade Paperbacks and Hard Cover Editions if you’re looking for some extra stories. Quite a few #1’s as well as collected editions, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Devolution 1Devolution #1 – Add one more series to Rick Remender recent bibliography (see Deadly Class, Low, Black Science, Tokyo Ghost, which are only some of his works from Image alone!) This time, all life on earth has gone through de-evolution, and humans search for the cure!

Captain Marvel #1 – The writers of T.V.’s Agent Carter come to comics! As a new creative team takes over, Carol Danvers faces her toughest challenge yet!

Poison Ivy: The Cycle of Life And Death #1 – Pamela Isley must prove she didn’t murder a fellow scientist in the beginning of this exciting and albeit unexpected new mini-series!

American Monster 1American Monster #1 – Since his run on Wonder Woman ended over a year ago, fans have been waiting for Brian Azzarello to come back in a major way. He’s been working on DKIII and Batman: Europa too, but this is the first writing work that’s solely his many have been looking forward to. An unappealing man becomes a town hero, until his true motivations are revealed. Azzarello is returning to crime stories, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Star Wars #15 – Another tale from the journals of Obi-Wan! More about Kenobi’s time “watching over” Luke, despite what Uncle Owen may have to say about it.

A few other issues to look forward to:

Astro City #31, Batman: Arkham Knight – Genesis #6, Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #6, Robin: Son of Batman #8, Silver Surfer #1, The Spirit #7, Usagi Yojimbo #151.
