What is up Wednesday Warriors? Very light week, here is what is on tap…

New Series/#1’s
Batman Dark Age #1 – New Batman series with Michael Allred on art.

Ghostbusters Back In Town #1 – personally looking forward to this. I love Ghostbusters and saw the new movie over the weekend. I believe this is the first appearance of the new Ghostbusters in comic form.

Jackpot And Black Cat #1 – If nothing else, the A cover is by Adam Hughes. When someone blackmails Black Cat into a public and blatant crime spree, Jackpot comes to her aid! What classic Spider-Villain is behind the blackmail?! Someone with history with at least one of our titular heroines!

Goon Them That Dont Stay Dead #1 – Goon makes his return. Always a fun read.

Morning Star #1 – 1956. Kootenai National Forest, Montana. When smokejumper Nathan Garrett perishes in a raging wildfire, his surviving family’s hopes and happiness turn to ashes. Now, one year following Nathan’s death, wife, and mother of two, Jolene Garrett, takes her crumbling family to the Morning Star lookout seeking solace through closure–to scatter her husband’s remains. But something far beyond the reach of their wildest imaginings awaits the Garrett family in the Montana wilderness–something more powerful than their anguish and torment. Something that transcends space and time. No telephones. No electricity. No transportation. No escape.

Sam And Twitch Case Files #1 – Spawn-verse continues to expand with the relaunch of Sam and Twitch.

Under York #1 – New York’s destiny is written in its depths… Alison Walker is a promising young painter in Manhattan. But she has a secret. She’s also a witch. She and her family belong to the world of Under York, a mysterious, underground New York where five powerful clans of witches have reigned for centuries. These families with their strict codes of life, drawn from the country’s main communities (African, Irish, Chinese, Mexican, and Amerindian) practice magic as powerful as it is dangerous. For generations, they have been hunted and persecuted. Today, they secretly influence life on the surface and its inhabitants. Their revenge is to participate in the destiny of a world that banished them. And this is the universe in which Alison Walker grew up. The universe she fled and doesn’t want to hear about anymore. Until fate catches up with her…

One and Done
Star Wars The High Republic Adventures Phase III Crash Landing #1 – “Crash” Ongwa and her ragtag crew have been fighting against anyone who had a hand in the Nihil infiltration that plunged her home planet of Corellia into chaos. Even though an uneasy peace has been reached, if they don’t continue to fight, everything they sacrificed for could slip away. Now, Crash has a lead on the person behind the entire Nihil plot-if her crew can accomplish this mission, could true peace be on their horizon?

For the Cover

Batman The Brave And The Bold #11 Ashley Wood Cover – Not crazy about the price but the Ashley Wood cover is iconic

Harley Quinn #38 Sozomaika Womens History Month Cover – Giddyup. Great looking cover, not sure why she is a cowgirl though.

Notable Reprint
Cerebus The Aardvark #1 Facsimilie Edition – Awesome that this is coming out but the price tag is very steep.

Small Press Pick of the Week
Feral #1 – Creative Team behind Stray is back, this time focused on cats. Not sure if too much time has passed between the hit first series and now for it to have some oomph but still should be a good read.

Pick of the Week
Edge Of Spider-Verse #2 – Gluemy Miller is the new kid, and things aren’t looking good for him making it through his first year there with the villainous teachers actually trying to kill him. On the bright side, he may have a shot with the cute cheerleader, but who is the mysterious and deadly SPOOKER-MAN?!

Ultimate Spider-Man Vol #3 – Ultimate Green Goblin finally fully appears in the series, we have seen him a couple of times in the background, but he is a hero? Spoilers later.
