It's another glorious comic book release day. Plenty to choose from starting today with the latest issues of Copperhead, Sex Criminals, Red Sonja, Lazarus, to the kid-friendly Sonic Boom, Kids of the Round Table, and Princeless. Check out this week's notable new comics.


The Blacker the Ink is the first collection to explore not only the diverse range of black characters in comics, but also the multitude of ways that black artists, writers, and publishers have made a mark on the industry. The book's fifteen original essays take us on a journey that includes familiar milestones like Luke Cage and The Boondocks, while spanning everything from African American newspaper comics of the 1930s to Francophone graphic novels of the 2000s. The Blacker the Ink also offers inspiring stories of trailblazing African American artists and writers. These essays will give you a new appreciation for how black characters and creators have brought a vibrant splash of color to the world of comics.
