#LongReads: Every Thursday Afternoon comiXology Unbound suggests a comic to read for those who are looking for something more than 22 pages!

Wednesday, to everyone else it’s Humpday, the middle of the week, the bottom of the doldrum-pit that is the weekly grind, but to all of us comic fans it’s the shining beacon of hope and ecstasy that is #NewComicDay! Here are the books gettin’ us all riled up today:

Silver Surfer #1 - Is this the most anticipated All-New Marvel NOW comic to come out this year? All that matters is that I get to see some Mike Allred space action goodness. 
The Wake #7 - You can pretty much just rest assured at this point that whatever weeks the Wake comes out, it will be on my list. Please get caught up on this series so we can talk about it. #friendship 
Iron Patriot #1 -aleskot! Are we friends yet? Pretty stoked to pick this one up, especially since I know you and kellysue collaborated a bit. 
The Bunker #2 -  The best TV show that is actually a comic you can pick up right now. Only two issues in! Go!
The Sandman: Overture #2 - The wait is finally over. Even if I couldn’t read at all I could still look at the art in this book and be mesmerized. 
Hawkeye #18 - It’s a Kate Issue…/ITS A KATE ISSUE! (This reminds me of Lost and “Kate Episodes”)
Deadpool #26 - These flashback issues have been a lot of fun, and even though I’m really excited to get to the big wedding issue coming up next, I see Cable (and uh… an enraged Hitler?) on the cover of this one and can’t wait to read it. 
Rat Queens vol. 1: Sass and Sorcery - If you’re not reading this (or planning to) I assume you just woke up from a coma and this is your first time on Tumblr. Love u kurtiswiebe and johnnyrocwell

Saga of the Swamp Thing: Book One

Before WATCHMEN, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book industry with the revitalization of the horror comic book THE SWAMP THING. His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history. With modern-day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, SWAMP THING’s stories became commentaries on environmental, political and social issues, unflinching in their relevance.

SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING BOOK ONE collects issues #20-27 of this seminal series including the never-before-reprinted SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #20, where Moore takes over as writer and concludes the previous storyline. Book One begins with the story “The Anatomy Lesson,” a haunting origin story that reshapes SWAMP THING mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond.

Sweet Tooth by Jeff Lemire

I LOVE anything post-apocalyptic, and have always thought people look better with horns, so when I first stumbled across Sweet Tooth in college, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I never read it all in one go though, so thats the plan tonight. SWEET TOOTH #COMICBINGE!

A cross between Bambi and Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, SWEET TOOTH tells the story of Gus, a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children, has been raised in isolation following an inexplicable pandemic that struck a decade earlier. Now, with the death of his father he’s left to fend for himself … until he meets a hulking drifter named Jepperd who promises to help him. Jepperd and Gus set out on a post-apocalyptic journey into the devastated American landscape to find ‘The Preserve’ a refuge for hybrids.
