A comiXologist Recommends:
Leah Wishnia recommends The Walking Dead #126
Part twelve of the All out War story arc, the finish line after a series of war games filled with surprising strategies, deceitful trickery, and of course, death, asks us to do something seemingly more difficult than taking down an army of grenade-bearing men or escape from a herd of the undead…. it asks us to trust. To trust in Rick, to trust in the remaining Saviors, even those who could do great harm, and to trust in humankind and its potential to rebuild itself from the ground up. Could we, the human race, conquer our greed, our hate, our fear, if we were given a clean slate? Or is self-destruction our only fate?
It’s probing questions like these that elevate The Walking Dead from being a simple genre-comic about zombies to a philosophical exploration of What Could Be and If So, Could You?
We don’t know how the future will pan out for Rick and his crew, but after ten years of following their various journeys, some futile, some less so, we can’t help but eagerly continue down the road with them, and see where the next ten years will take us all.
The Walking Dead #126, which comes out today, is a rewarding journey for veteran and new fans alike.

If you’ve been waiting for a good time to get into Robert Kirkman and Ryan Ottley’s INVINCIBLE, now is that time!
All this weekend you can get every issue for just 99¢ each, collections as low as $2.99, and for maximum savings you can get all 110 issues for $75!
If you don’t know what Invincible is, it’s Robert Kirkman’s (The guy who created The Walking Dead) take on the world of superheroes, and it’s not afraid to push the boundaries of the genre.
Mark Grayson is teenage superhero Invincible. He was a normal high school senior with a normal part-time job and otherwise normal life, except his father Nolan is the superhero Omni-Man, the most powerful superhero on the planet. At the age of 17, Mark begins to display superpowers, which come from his father being a member of the Viltrumite race, who, according to Nolan, pioneer the galaxy on a mission of benevolence and enlightenment.
As Invincible, Mark begins working as a superhero, with his father acting as his mentor, and meeting other heroes. Mark worked occasionally with a superhero team called the Teen Team (consisting of Robot, Rex Plode, Dupli-Kate and Atom Eve), from there discovering that his Physics teacher has been turning his students into human bombs. He stops his teacher with the help of the heroine, Atom Eve. He also foils a plan to make an army of robots, created by the Mauler Twins. Meanwhile Omni-Man is kidnapped by aliens, taken to another dimension, but returns after what seems to be only a few days, but was actually eight months to him.

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:
The Wake #6 - Part Two, #1! The Wake returns as our story jumps two hundred years into a flooded future where nothing is the same. If you didn’t read the first half of The Wake, you missed out on one of the most exciting and unpredictable books of 2013. Think Alien if it took place in an underwater laboratory.
Hawkeye #15 - Hawkeye is back! Clint is back! David Aja is back! Everyone celebrate!
Nemo: Roses of Berlin - From the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, continuing in the thrilling tradition of Heart of Ice, Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill rampage through twentieth-century culture in a blazing new adventure, set in a city of totalitarian shadows and mechanical nightmares. Cultures clash and lives are lost in the explosive collision of four unforgettable women, lost in the black and bloody alleyways where thrive the Roses of Berlin.
Rat Queens #5 - Kurtis Wiebe (kurtiswiebe) and Roc Upchurch (johnnyrocwell) have created one of the most entertaining comics out there if you’re a fan of action and adventure and dwarves and elves and mages and mischief. If you’re not into those things, I’m not even sure I want to know you anyway.
Superman: Lois Lane- There has definitely not been enough Lois Lane in the New52, so you have no idea how stoked we are to be releasing this book!
Hacktivist #2 - With a government contract on the table in exchange for their pardons, Nate and Ed open the doors of their social networking company YourLife to the CIA to continue their operations in Tunisia. However, Ed may already be thinking a few moves ahead of them all, with bigger, more dangerous plans for sve_Urs3lf
The Walking Dead #122 - Does this book really need an introduction at this point?
Conrad Paulson lives a secret double life as master thief Redmond. There is nothing he can’t steal, nothing he can’t have… except for the life he left behind. Now with a grown son he hardly knows, and an ex-wife he never stopped loving, Conrad must try to piece together what’s left of his life, before the FBI finally catch up to him… but it appears they are the least of his worries.
Check out Thief of Thieves for half-price until 9/12 this week. It’s a deal so good it might as well be a steal.
