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
What is up Wednesday Warriors? Another small week this week, again, good, more money for back issues. Here is what is on tap:
Count Crowley Mediocre Midnight Monster Hunter #1 – Love this series of mini series about an alcoholic Midnight Horror Host who finds herself fighting real monsters.
Empath #1 – Black Box Comics – Sold out at Midtown and TFAW. An estranged son from a wealthy family finds his place in a chaotic city filled with vagabonds and wayward individuals. But as much as his family is in his past, his reasons for leaving them behind drives his everyday choices and fuels not only his desire to help others but also his uncanny and empowered empathic abilities to change things for the better. But the city’s ills may prove too great for him as both an emotional and physical battle awaits.
Petrol Head #1 – Image – In a climate crisis-ravaged future metropolis, an old, grumpy, obsolete, smoke-belching, cigar-chomping, HOTROD-RACING ROBOT is one 12-year-old girl’s only hope. Together, can they outrace the chasing Robo-Cops with an invention that might just save humanity?
Star Wars High Republic #1 – Third phase of High Republic kicks off.
Thanos #1 – Rumor of a new Illuminati. Spoilers later.

For the Cover
What If Dark Tomb Of Dracula #1 (One Shot) Artgerm Variant – Great looking art germ cover.
Amazing Spider-Man Vol 6 #37 Cover F Incentive Arthur Adams Variant – Always appreciate Art Adams covers, but also love Mary Jane with the spider-suit.
Pick of the Week
