Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Quite a few number ones to talk about this week, plus there’s a big stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

Betty and VeronicaBetty & Veronica #1 – The latest addition to the “relaunching” Archie-verse, Adam Hughes both writes and draws this series about everyone’s favorite best-frenemies.

Black Hammer #1 – Jeff Lemire brings us a team of former superheroes who can’t seem to get away from trouble.

Deadpool and The Mercs For Money #1 – Spinning off of Deadpool’s most recent flagship series, DP and his team of miscreants offer their heroic services for hire (but that name was taken, wasn’t it?). If you enjoy this issue, I recommend going back and following their adventures early on in the latest Deadpool run.

Faith #1 – After the fan-favorite blockbuster previous series, Faith is back in her new ongoing! Everyone’s talking about this so get on this while you can!

A few other issues to look forward to:

The October Faction #18, A-Force #7, Casanova Acedia #6, Lazarus #23, Rumble #12, Snotgirl #1, Velvet #15

Collected Editions and OGNs:

Huck Vol 1Green Arrow by Kevin Smith TPB – Before Batman: Cacophony and The Widening Gyre, Kevin Smith’s first work at DC was with the arrow (of course with an appearance from the Dark Knight).
