What is up Wednesday Warriors? Well, really small week, no stand outs at first looks, maybe there will be a surprise hit. Here is what is on tap:

New Series/#1’s
Deliver Us From Evil #1 – Blood Moon – A betrayal as old as Time itself. Only in the future can you save the past. When the bad-luck magic of Hellblazer blend with the conspiracies of the X-files…Who can Deliver us from Evil?

Destro #1 – Skybound continues their GI Joe tie-in’s.

Immortal Ultraviolent #1 – Keenspot – Taking place thirty years after the world went to hell, the everlasting Elisa Landis returns as a new Immortal appears and is on the run from an unknown entity. John Wick meets X-Men in this high-octane action thriller where one wrong move and you lose your head. Where has Elisa been the last three decades? Who is the mysterious new Immortal, and why does Rashin Lyght’s name keep popping up?

Misery #1 – Spawn spin off featuring the daughter of Wanda Fitzgerald, the former wife of Al Simmons

Self Help #1 – Down-on-his-luck rideshare driver Jerry Hauser’s existence is a bleak one… especially because every fare he picks up tells him how much he looks like uber-successful self-help guru Darren Hart. But after a twist of fate, Jerry is given the chance of a lifetime… which, if he’s not careful, may well end his lifetime. So begins this California noir-a rollicking and gleefully lurid pulp crime story for our time.

The Writer #1 – Dark Horse – In a dark turn, comic book writer Stan Siegel’s life dives into a neo-Nazi occult nightmare.
