It’s another massive week for creator-owned comics! While Image Comics has the most titles to look forward to, BOOM! Studios is bringing the heaviest hitter among the entire bunch. It feels like I say this week after week, but there are absolute bangers of comics to check out from top to bottom. You’d be missing out on some of the best stories you can find if you don’t have at least two of these upcoming titles as part of your pull list.

Let’s check out the creator-owned comics we’re most excited about reading this week!
