Welcome to the New Number Ones!

Each week we bring you the list of new series and special editions coming this week. We are highlighting what you need to put in your cart at the comic shop or digital marketplace.

We have an alphabetical list with cover art and the official solicitation text from the publishers of some of the cool new comics that are coming out this month. Check below for our PCS NOTES to find out what we just have to tell you about the new comics in question.

This is the forth week of a five week month, and there are a bunch of really cool new series this week as well as a great slate of ongoing comics at your LCS. Remember that this coming weekend has Small Business Saturday on the schedule. Support your Local Comic Shop.

We have books on the list from: DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Mad Cave Studios, Archie Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and DSTLRY Media.

One thing to remember, we continue to measure the “comic week” as Wednesday. #NCBD is Wednesday.
