Mae #3: The sisters get deeper into weirdness as Mae gets used to the idea of not being in her home realm anymore. It just keeps getting better!

Red Thorn vol. 1 - Glasgow Kiss: This book has been one of my favorite new series, right from the beginning.

Nightwing #1: I was really happy with the Rebirth issue, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes from here. I did feel like I needed to go back and read some issues of other New 52 series I wasn't reading in order to really know what was happening, but hopefully, all will become clear.


What Is It?: Boom's first children's book illustrated by Dustin Nguyen. A young girl discovers a small creature in the forest. Both go on an adventure to learn what the other is.

Wonder Woman #3: HAVE I LET YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!??? Well, it's pretty great.

Mockingbird #5: Seriously Bobbi, explain what's happening to you.

Dragon Age Magekiller TP: Greg Rucka gets on my picks twice this week. This mini series is great for any fans of the Dragon Age series, specifically Inquisition.

Weirdworld vol. 1: This book about one girl trapped in a strange world during a time of great personal grief. The art on this book is gorgeous and I dare you not to love Goleta the Wizard Killer.

Over The Garden Wall #4-  A man is trying to cut down all the trees for an enormous tree house, which Greg tries to stop. Also, Anna has to deal with the disappearance of her friend and her mother's’ ghost.

Also excited for: Dragon Age Magekiller TP, Adventure Time Comics #1


Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw #12: This book is AMAZING, and it keeps getting better! I love the animal people and how this book marries sci-fi and fantasy! The main character is lovable and you quickly become invested in him and his quest. A real fun read.

Batgirl #1: Barbara is going to Japan to hone her fighting skills and ends up in the middle of a deadly mystery (because of course she does). My luck with Rebirth titles has been pretty good so far, so I'm pretty excited for this book.

Future Quest #3: This is a big old slice of my childhood.Every issue is like watching Saturday morning cartoons. I loved all of the Hanna-Barbara cartoons growing up and this book is the perfect crossover for them!

Mae #3: This one is a shop favorite and with good reason! The art is out of this world and the story always leaves you wanting more. If you are looking for a compelling read, look no further than Mae!

Rom #1: The space knight from the 80's is back and I couldn't be more thrilled! The Free Comic Book Day teaser was fantastic and I have been impatient for this title to come out ever since. The wait is finally over!

Spider-Gwen #10: This is a great take on Spider-Man No More. Alone and powerless, Gwen struggles with what it is to be Gwen without being Spider-Woman. I'm afraid to look at pre release blurbs, but from the cover there might be an appearance by Earth 65 Kraven, and that would really tickle my fancy!
