Breaking up your week in the best way possible, #NewComicDay has arrived once again! Here’s some of the books we’re looking forward to reading most this week:
Zero Vol. 1: An Emergency - aleskot has created one of the most interesting new comics out. Kot explains that “every issue is simultaneously a self-contained story and a part of the big overarching narrative.” Issues #2 & #3 were some of the most jawdropping comics I read all year. Volume 1 collects issues 1-5, do yourself a favor and pick it up.
Daredevil #36 - The Astounding Final Issue! Where does Daredevil go from here? It’s the end of an era you don’t want to miss.
Red Sonja #7 - Part 1 of a new story arc from rockstar writer gailsimone! Fresh from her ordeals in the Queen of the Plague epic, Sonja is charged with the task of playing bodyguard to Hyborea’s greatest chef, even though seemingly everyone wants him dead! Join us for this unique issue of recipes, culinary technique, and decapitation! This edition features exclusive behind the scenes content only available on comiXology!
Loki: Ragnarok & Roll #1 (of 4) - What happens when Odin banishes Loki to Earth? He finds a world of outcasts that appreciate his style! While his kin sharpen their weapons, he picks up an electric guitar. For those who want their Norse Gods a little more Metal.
Undertow #1 - Atlantis is the world superpower, and Redum Anshargal is its worst enemy. If you want to break free of the system, he can offer you a place at his side, exploring the wild surface world in his watertight city barge The Deliverer. He and his hostage-protege Ukinnu Alal hunt the Amphibian, a legend that could be the key to an air-breathing life on land. But as they become the hunted, can Anshargal’s team survive long enough to turn the tables on the godlike beast they set out for?
Justice League #28 - A FOREVER EVIL tie-in! With the Justice League gone, new heroes continue to rise up throughout the DC Universe. The Crime Syndicate tried to kill him, but now Cyborg is back to settle the score-and with him are the Metal Men.
Check these out and all the other new releases available today on comiXology!
#incaseyoumissedit All-New Saga #18 came out this week from Brian K. Vaughan & fionastaples & boy is it great!
comiXology Daily Deal!
(did you know we’re doing daily deals???)
TODAY ONLY use code “ASTRONAUT” when purchasing God Hates Astronauts vol. 1 and get $10 off!
GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank-robbing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not so much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to RoboCop and Die Hard.

- First Issue = Free!
- #2-30 = 99¢

Guest Star KARA’s Picks of the Week for 10/30/13!
- Saga #15 - I’ve judged this book by its cover, and I have found it EXCELLENT. If you haven’t started this series yet, a) WHY HAVEN’T YOU and b) GET ON THAT. It’s engrossing and weird and utterly wonderful, and you’ll want to wallpaper your life in Fiona Staples’s art.
- Powerpuff Girls #2 - Cue the theme song. The first issue set the tone as a spot-on adaptation of the killer Cartoon Network series of yore. You can just about hear the characters talking in their voices as you read. Plus, more Mojo Jojo is always a good thing.
- The Fox #1 - I have a soft spot for the Red Circle heroes, so when The Fox was announced I was excited, but when I saw that Mark Waid was involved I almost passed out. It’s gonna be good, is what I’m trying to say here. Stop reading this list and start reading this book, NOW.
- Damian: Son of Batman #1 - Definitely scared to read this one. DC killing off Damian was rage-inducing for me, so I’m not sure I’m ready to have my heart broken again. But I’m also morbidly curious, so, yeah, I’ll read it. I just might have to angry-capslock-tweet about it afterwards.
Kara supervises the international production team at comiXologyand is super excited about her Halloween costume this year.
Running this one through the digimatron3000* so its all ready for you crazy kids tomorrow morning.
*there is no such thing as a digimatron3000 (to our knowledge)
