New Comic Books are released in retail shops across the United States every Wednesday, and every week the Degobot makes it to his local comic book store (Floating World Comics in Portland, OR) to purchase a small stack of comic books. Comics aren’t cheap, so the Degobot has to be selective on which comics he chooses to spend his hard earned money on. The decision to buy or not buy a particular comic is based on the book’s creative team, character, publisher, and cover.

The Degobot is excited to read the following comics today:

Saga 12

SAGA # 12 (by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples)

Here at Unsolicited Fanboy Opinions we just LOVE banned books! So, when the news broke yesterday that Apple would not be selling issue 12 of “Saga” via their app store due to a gay sex scene, this comic jumped to the top of the read stack. It’s not that we have a thing for overly sexualized comics, but we do love it when creators really push the industry’s boundaries with their art. (Published by Image Comics)


THE SECRET SERVICE # 6 (by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons)

The conspiracy revealed! Gary and Jack begin to learn what’s behind the celebrity kidnappings they’ve been investigating… but that knowledge comes at a price. A raid on Mount Everest begins; the clock is ticking, and the web is beginning to unravel. But who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved? (Published by Icon Comics)

Uncanny Avengers 6

UNCANNY AVENGERS # 6 (by Rick Remender and Daniel Acuna)

It’s Thor VS Apocalypse in the 11th Century! Writer Rick Remender kicks off the newest story arc entitled “The Apocalypse Twins” with new regular series artist; Daniel Acuna! Digital readers should help keep their local comic book shop in business and purchase a print copy of this book; it costs the same and comes with a free digital copy. (Published by Marvel Comics)
