Welcome Back to NEW NUMBER ONES! New comics are BACK!!!
If you are new here, this column is designed to bring you reviews of new comic book series that came out this week. We will try to focus on independent and original series for the most part. This week we have four books for you. They are from Archie Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, and Image Comics.
You will usually find the books that we review in this space on our month list of New Number Ones. As the distribution of new comics is still getting underway, expect a monthly look ahead for July’s new series.
The books this week are all returns of well-known properties, but eminently worthwhile. They have been out of publication for a while, but we are glad they are all back.
This week we will bring you our thoughts on four books: The Boys: Dear Becky #1, Nailbiter Returns #1, Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew #1, and Sabrina, The Teenage Witch: Something Wicked #1
Check out the reviews below in alphabetical order:

Russ Braun returns to the art duties, and his storytelling and character depictions are fantastic, as usual. Tony Aviña on colors and Simon Bowland on letters round out an excellent creative team that delivers a wonderful return for The Boys. Continue reading “New Number Ones for the Week of June 3, 2020”
