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. Just a few things to talk about, but there are quite a few number 1’s this week, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Mirror 1Mirror #1 – Emma Rios (Pretty DeadlyIsland) teams up with Hwei Lim (LalageHero) to bring us a tale of finding acceptance.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency: A Spoon Too Short #1 – The last ‘Dirk Gently’ series was good, and I’m hoping the continuation of the franchise means it’s here to stay for awhile. The title refers to a story Douglas Adams was working on before his death. Any fan of Hitchhiker’s Guide or other Adam’s work would do well to check this out. (Delayed)

Mercury Heat #7 – The beginning of the second arc! Gillen has been on fire between The Wicked + The Divine and Darth Vader, and the same is true here.

Spider-Man 1Spider-Man #1 – Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for Miles Morales entering not only the regular Marvel Universe but also the Avengers!

Kennel Block Blues #1 – Canine anthropomorphic jailhouse drama? How does one deal with living in the shelter? Escape to a magical world in your imagination of course! This may be one that needs to be seen to be believed.

A few other issues to look forward to:

Batman Europa #4 (mini-series finale), Deadpool: Mercs for Money #1, Dejah Thoris #1, Obi-Wan & Anakin #2, Paper Girls #5 (first arc finale), Pretty Deadly #8, Shutter #18 (new arc begins), Swamp Thing #2, Velvet #13 (third arc begins)
