I’ve assembled a very interesting list for this week’s releases in creator-owned comics. Typically, my choices feature plenty of titles from Image Comics. But for the first time, since I started putting these lists together, I’m showcasing just as many promising titles from BOOM! Studios as I am from Image. It’s exciting to see so many exciting comics come from different places, creators, and styles. It feels like I say this every week, but there’s never been a better time than now to be into reading comic books.
Let’s check out my list of creator-owned comics to check out this week!
The latest “House of Slaughter” issue starts a new story arc. This time, the story focuses on the exploits of Bait, the fan-favorite White Mask.

With no restrictions put on him, it’s time for the young prodigy to let loose and stop whatever (or whoever) is killing the children.
Bloody El is back, and she has a new score to settle. It seems the answers the occult-for-hire has been looking for rest with the corpse of her dead uncle. This new arc offers a devilish twist to a heist story as Ellie tries to steal her uncle’s body before her enemies do.
