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

Hey Wednesday Warriors, end of the month and it seems like we finally get a really good week.

New #1’s
August Purgatory Underground #1 – As a long civil war ends, the once celebrated hero Captain August finds himself in the center of an intergalactic controversy. Running out of time and options, he accepts a dangerous mission to a decaying planet- and finds that the war isn’t nearly over! An action-packed sci-fi thriller that remixes the nostalgia of 80’s cartoons in a contemporary style!

Batman The Audio Adventures #1 – based off the Podcast

DC Horror Presents Sgt Rock vs The Army Of The Dead #1 – Sgt. Rock vs Nazi zombies and written by legend Bruce Campbell, I am in.

Flawed #1 – ultra-violent, high-octane limited series that’s Frasier meets The Punisher! Gem Ezz is a psychiatrist in the Kafkaesque city of Setham, where corruption and brutality rule the streets. By day, she uses words to solve her patients’ problems. By night, she takes a more direct-and sometimes deadly-approach. But when her practice puts her in the sights of an immortal serial killer, Gem finds herself embroiled in a power struggle that threatens everything she’s ever known.

Old Dog #1 – Jack Lynch was a once-promising CIA operative. On the eve of retirement, looking back at a failed career, he is tasked with one final mission…that goes horribly wrong. He wakes years later to a changed world and deeper changes within him. When a shadow group offers Lynch a second chance at a life of adventure, he’s paired with the last person he could ever imagine. In order to adjust, this old dog will have to learn some new tricks…

Roadie #1 – Scumbag meets the Exorcist. From Tim Seeley and Fran Galán comes this horror saga about nostalgia, heavy metal music, hell, and redemption. More than thirty-five years after his heyday, a former heavy metal roadie must return to the backroads of America to do a job he thought he’d retired from: exorcist. But this time, he’s not saving groupies and drunk bassists. He’s trying to save his daughter.

Tim Drake Robin #1 – Tim Drake taking center stage in a brand-spanking-new Robin series of his very own! A mystery over a year in the making takes shape, as a new villain who’s been hounding Tim from afar decides to take things up close and personal, putting Bernard and everyone else Tim cares about in peril as things go from bad to worse for the world’s oldest Robin.
