New This Week:

Action Comics #987 – “The Oz Effect!” Everything that’s happened since Rebirth began has been leading to this moment! The mysterious Mr. Oz finally reveals his identity, and things may never be the same for Superman!

Hellboy & The B.P.R.D. 1955 – Occult Intelligence #1 – HB finds himself fallen into a Cold War paranormal weapons fight, and Bruttenholm’s discoveries might actually be worse!

Runaways #1 – Picking up right where the original series left off, your favorite runaways return (plus some you may not expect!) Don’t miss the return of the classic hit.

Retcon #1 – The return of a brand new series, like you’ve never seen it before! Great jump-on point for new readers!

Sheena #1 – Margueritte Bennett takes us back to the jungle! Sheena is forced to strike a deal with a group of mercenaries to look for their friend, but she may not be the only one looking…

This section is for readers new to comics, readers looking for new titles, as well as readers on a budget, highlighting several great “jump-on” points each week for about $20.

Hellboy & The B.P.R.D. 1955 Occult Intelligence #1 – $3.99 – Pretty much any new Hellboy-verse story is a good jump-on point, and these ‘50s series have been pretty great!

Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special #1 – $4.99 – With Paul Dini, Chad Hardin, Chip Zdarsky, Joe Quinones, and more contributing, how can anyone pass on this?

Star Wars #36 – $3.99 – Threepio has been held by The Empire for too long, and R2 has had enough!

TOTAL = $12.97

Way under budget for the week, so treat yoself to something that’s caught your eye for awhile!
