Here is a quick look at some highlights on the shelves this week. Several Holiday specials from a few publishers, several more new #1’s, plus a healthy stack of new TPBs and HCs, so without further ado let’s dive in…

New This Week:

dc-rebirth-holiday-specialDC Rebirth Holiday Special #1 – I’ve said it before, and I stand by it: I miss the old DC Holiday Specials! Hopefully we’ll be getting plenty more in the future with Rebirth. And who could pass up a new Harley Quinn story by creator Paul Dini? This is sure to be a modern classic, get yours before they’re all gone!

Hawkeye #1 – Fan-favorite Kate Bishop (finally!) gets behind the wheel in her first ever solo series! She’s packing up and heading back to the west coast to continue life as a P.I. Hooray for Katie-Kate-Hawkeye!

Rockstars #1 – When a pattern of unsolved murders from over 40 years ago continues in the present day, it’s going to take a super fan and a music writer to connect the dots. But are they ready to deal with demonic possession, ritual sacrifices, and the rock gods themselves?

Inhumans Vs X-Men #1 – Marvel’s next event is here! Beast has discovered that mutants may only have a few weeks to live, as other recent discoveries lead them to war with the Inhumans!

Steven Universe 2016 Special – The Big Donut Special!
