Another title coming out is, Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Boushh #1 by Alyssa Wong with art by David Baldeon. Kang the Conqueror #2 is also out. This so far has been a great story. It is by Jackson Lanzing with art by Collin Kelly.
From Artists Writers & Artisans INC. comes a fun book because of the story, and art. Fight Girls # 3 (of 5) are great reads because it is a little like the Hunger Games books. However, with a little more twist and the players are all women.
Week Four September 23, 2021
From Image Comics comes a new comic series, Frontiersman #1.The story is by Patrick Kindlon with art by Marco Ferrari. It should be fun to see what happens when a retired super-hero is bothered while trying to be left alone. This is for mature readers only.
Image Comics also has the title, Vinyl #4 by Dough Wagner with art by Dave Stewart. This comic series is for mature readers only. We follow Walter with his group of series killers as they try to rescue his best friend. The last thing coming from Image Comics is a new volume for an old series, Ant #1. It is by Erik Larsen with art by Hal Laren.
From Marvel Comics comes, Alien #7 by Phillip Kennedy Johnson with art by Salcador Larroca. The comic series is great as it keeps you guessing of what might happen next in the story. Marvel Comics also has a mini-series, Death of Doctor Strange #1 (of 5). The comic is by Jed MacKay with art by Lee Garbett.
Boom! Studio’s title Something is Killing the Children, has issue #20 and hopefully you have been reading this series. Another title coming out from this week is, Eat the Rich #2. The story is by Sarah Gailey with art by Pius Bak.

From Marvel Comics comes a new series title, Inferno #1. The story is by Jonathan Hickman with art by Valerio Schiti. This looks to be a fun series. I have been looking forward to this for a while.
Image Comics has Adventureman #5 by Matt Fraction with art by Terry and Rachel Dodson. I enjoy the story as there is so much going on. But also, I am a long time fan of Dodson’s art.
DC Comics has a new series coming this week with the title, Deathstroke Inc. #1. It is by Joshua Williamson with art by Howard Porter. This is new series so there will be about six covers to pick from. The title should be a very interesting read as we see Slade Wilson working with a new partner Black Canary!
Marvel Comics has another Venom book coming out this week with the title, Extreme Carnage: Omega#1. The writing is by Phillip Kennedy Johnson with art by Manuel Garcia. For those who are missing and waiting on the next season of Stranger Things, don’t worry! Here is a mini-series from Dark Horse Comics. Stranger Things: Tomb of Ybwen #1 (of 4) is by Greg Pak with art by Diego Galindo.
The last book I will like is from Second Sight Publishing with the title, These Damn Kids #1. The writing is by Bradley Golden, and Peter Breau with art by Helmut Racho. It is about a small town where the kids start acting strange and start killing their parents and other adults. It has the Children of the Corn feel and supernatural mix with the story. This is for mature readers only so don’t let the kids see or read this one! This month it seems like a ton of books are coming out and per norm if there is five Wednesdays in that month the last week has the biggest releases.
