New Number Ones: New Comics Releasing for the Week of August 16, 2023

Welcome to the New Number Ones!

Each Wednesday we bring you the list of new series and special editions in a post highlighting what you need to put in your cart at the comic shop or digital marketplace.

In this week’s column, 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.

The fallout of last month’s Hellfire Gala will have effects on the rest of the Marvel universe; so keep an eye out for those new books.

This week, we have books on the list from: Marvel Comics,  Image Comics, IDW Publishing, Archie Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, and First Second Books.

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

We will bring you reviews of these debut issues as they come out, and don’t forget to use the comments section to let us know what you think of this list.
