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, and there are quite a few number 1’s this week, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Black Widow 1Black Widow #1 – It’s a whle new beginning for Nat! The previous series was one the first Marvel titles I picked up on a regularly basis and continued through to the end, as well as one that gained massive fan and critical attention. And while I enjoyed Edmonson/Noto, I’m really looking forward to master creators Waid/Samnee.

The Fuse #18 – The conclusion of the third arc, Perihelion! Another solid and consistent series from Image and Johnston/Greenwood. If you haven’t read the rest of the series, I highly recommend you do. 

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #1 – #0’s hit just about 7 weeks ago and created huge buzz. 9 variants for this issue means either people went wild for the nostalgia, or this is one you won’t want to miss out on.

Vampirella 1Vampirella #1 – Fan-favorite creator Kate Leth takes over to bring Vampirella her newest solo-series! This time, the demon hunting vampire queen takes on Hollywood as Leth asks  “Can Vampirella be both a cult icon on the rise and take down an empire of ghouls and ghosts? Signs point to: Hell, yes!”

Joe Golem, Occult Detective #5 – I’ve only read the first couple of issues so far but I’m quite enjoying it. If you’ve enjoyed this series too, go out and find the illustrated novel, Joe Golem and The Drowning City.

A few other issues to look forward to:
