I don't know about you, but last week delivered one helluva punch to my wallet. It was an insanely busy week, so thankfully there isn't as much going on this Wednesday. Just in case you're still trying to decide which titles are worth your cash, here are the new ones coming out this week that we think are worth checking out.
In case you missed it, here's a full list of this week's new issues. Remember, you can expand the preview images by clicking on them.
BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8
Grant Morrison's entire run with Bruce and Damian has been leading up to this one issue. Something huge is about to happen and it's sure to be a can't miss for fans of either character. NY Post has a preview, but I'd recommend avoiding it if you've somehow managed to avoid spoilers thus far (which would be a Herculean feat).
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #0.1
The cosmic team is finally back! The usual cast is here (Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot) but now they'll be joined by Iron Man. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Steve McNiven, this point one issue is all about Star-Lord and how he became the leader of this unique team. Additionally, they have a movie right around the corner, so this is the perfect time to become an expert on these characters.
Check out a preview below.
It's time to see how our favorite Marvel archer will spend Valentine's Day! This issue will also see the return of Cherry and once again she's up to no good. It should be obvious by now, but writer Matt Fraction has been doing tremendous work with this title and it's absolutely hilarious stuff.
Visit CBR for the rest of the preview.
PUNISHER WAR ZONE #5
This is the final issue of Greg Rucka's run with Frank Castle! Shouldn't that be more than enough to sell you on it? Well, just in case it isn't, I'll also mention this will be the conclusion of the Avengers' search for Frank. Will he elude them once more or will they bring him in? We'll find out Wednesday, but I'm rooting for Castle.
Get a look at the first three pages below.
TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES: THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE FOOT CLAN #3
This is without question a must read for any Ninja Turtles fan. Diving into the history of the IDW reboot, this series has left me speechless. It's ridiculously fun, filled with intrigue and sporting fantastic artwork. I can't recommend this one enough.
