Every week, tons of new books hit the stands, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are the picks of the week for delivery this Wednesday
Hello Wednesday Warriors. It is another slow week this week. Hoping for some big surprises or something that catches people off guard, but barring that, here is what is on tap this week.

Blind Alley #1 – New small press Behemoth series. Jesús returns to the neighborhood where he grew up, La Esquina del Gato, a Sevillian suburban neighborhood where violence and the constant struggle against life’s adversities meet. His goal is to resume his relationship with Irene, his former girlfriend, and start a project together. With the help of Fae, his childhood friend, he tries to escape crime and marginalization, carving a niche for himself in the world of work and in society. But Vargas, the exalted brother of Fae, fans the flame of something that has been cooking for a long time … ‘El Irra has marked a work that is pure fire, a comic that is pure neighborhood poetry, pure fury and honesty.
