unfollow 7
By: Peter J. Tomasi, Tyler Kirkham, Yanick Paquette (DC Comics)

Unfollow is one of the more intriguing titles on the shelves today that don’t involve super heroes. This issue will focus on a new member of the 140 list, Courtney. Courtney is considered as an “It” girl and due to her inclusion on the 140, has been given her own hit reality TV Show. Knowing how Unfollow has developed its characters, expect Courtney to be another gripping character.


amazing spiderman 12

The most dangerous for from Secret Wars makes his debut in this issue of Amazing Spider-Man. Expect the All-New All-Different Avengers to guest star in this issue.


Black widow 3
By: Chris Samnee, Mark Waid (Marvel Comics)

Last time we saw our favorite femme fatale, she was being blackmailed by the Weeping Lion. Natasha must now pick her spots before making her move. Expect another excellent addition to this very young, yet compelling depiction of Black Widow.


daredevil punisher 1
By: Charles Soule, Szymon Kudranski, Reilly Brown (Marvel Comics)

The first of two Punisher books, Daredevil/Punisher #1 is the perfect book for those who still have a major hangover from Season 2 of the Daredevil series. In the first of four mini-series, Daredevil and Blindspot look to get a mobster his day in court, but the biggest roadblock to that is not any legal precedent, but rather The Punisher, all that Frank needs to do is put a bullet in him.


punisher 1

The other Punisher book debuting this week is Punisher #1, marking the return of Frank Castle in the All-New All-Different era. This version looks to be violent and bloody as evidenced by the parental advisory label on the cover. Expect Punisher to be pushed out of his comfort zone and taking him to the edge of the world he thought he knew.


poe dameron 2
By: Charles Soule, Phil Noto (Marvel Comics)

Star Wars Poe Dameron #1 was a pleasant surprise as it provided the same feel as the Force Awakens, issue #2 aims to continue and replicate that feel. The focus shifts to Captain Terrex of the First Order and how he found the Black Squadron. The race continues as Poe continues his mission to find Luke Skywalker.

There you have it, 7 awesome books to look out for this geeky week!
