Wednesday is seemingly a “holy day” for comic book collectors. It is the day when new comics come out. Collectors all around the country race to their local comic shops to get the latest issues of their favorite titles. They pile into shops to see what obstacles the writers and artists have thrown at their favorite heroes and characters this month. We thought it might be fun to highlight some of the more anticipated books to be released each week. And our first “New Comic Wednesday” blog is a big one. There is something for everyone coming out this week. Sure, this week sees a bunch of your standard, high quality regulars: BATMAN #26, JUSTICE LEAGUE #25, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #3, G.I. JOE #11, WALKING DEAD #118, CAPTAIN AMERICA #14, UNCANNY X-MEN #15, and WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #39 just to name a few (for a complete list check out Diamond Comics). But we want to focus on a few that we think may not get the same attention. So what are you waiting for? Rush out and check out all the new comics this week!!

JUSTICE LEAGUE 3000 #1 – This is the next big DC Comic series!! The new series starring the heroes of today—tomorrow! The Justice League find themselves in the year 3000. But what are they doing there? And who (or what) brought them there? Get ready for future versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and Flash!
INDESTRUCTIBLE #1 – The newest title from IDW’s Darby Pop Publishing line! Meet Greg Pincus — the planet’s brand-spanking-newest Superhero. One small problem: Greg is neither super, nor particularly heroic. Can Greg survive in a celebrity-obsessed world that wrongly believes he’s indestructible? Indestructible explores a comedic take on a reluctant hero, and contemplates what is required to be considered “special” in a world where fame can come and go faster than a speeding bullet.
ALEX + ADA #2 – The new series from Jonathan Luna (Sword; Girls)! Alex struggles with figuring out what to do with Ada, his new android, before anyone finds out about her. And, it seems she is not what even he expected.
MARVEL KNIGHTS: HULK #1 – An all new Hulk epic! An amnesiac Dr. Bruce Banner awakens on the banks of the Sienne—and soon finds himself in a desperate race through the streets of Paris! Who is hunting him—and how are they both transforming into grotesque Hulks? A mindbending mystery + an iconic city + huge monsters = quirky cool Hulk action!
DOC SAVAGE #1 – The Man Of Bronze is back!! In 1933, readers were first introduced to Doc Savage, the Man of Bronze, through pulp adventure novels. Raised from the cradle to be the pinnacle of mental and physical perfection, Doc Savage travels the world using science and sinews to right wrongs, aid the oppressed, and liberate the innocent. With his team of able associates at their headquarters high atop the tallest building in the world, Doc Savage is tireless in his pursuit of knowledge and justice. Dynamite Comics brings Doc Savage from 1933 through to today. And with “Easter eggs” along the way, this story will help pave the future for Doc and his team!!
