Comics | This Week’s New & Noteworthy | August 5th


The comics preview is all you need to find out which new titles are hitting comic store shelves this week.

Whether you’re a regular reader looking for something new or a newcomer to comics, I give you my top three picks – and now the preview is expanded to include a round-up every new comic in stores this week. Pick out your favourites and let us know what makes your pull list in the comments section.


This Damned Band #1

1974: the world’s most famous rock band thought they were “worshiping Satan,” only to find they were actually . . . worshiping Satan.

For: Comics fans who dig Spinal Tap.

Dark Horse Comics

Dark Corridor #1

Set in the fictional coastal city of RED CIRCLE—a city totally controlled by mobsters—who, after decades of wielding power, are silently being picked off one by- one by unidentified female assassins. Like a Goodfellas script re imagined by Quentin Tarantino, this sprawling crime-adventure will keep you guessing and tuning in for more month after month!

For: Those who like twists and turns.

Image Comics

John Flood #1

As the result of a government experiment, John Flood no longer needs to sleep, but now he’s in a constant dream state and sometimes can’t tell what’s real and what isn’t. But a side effect is that he sees patterns and makes connections no one else can, which serve him well in his new “career” as a make-shift PI. Together with a burly ex-cop, Flood begins to investigate when he “sees” one man responsible for thousands of unsolved murders, but now he himself has caught the killer’s attention…

For: Fans of crime thrillers with a twist.
