NEW COMIC BOOK DAY: Notable Releases 1/13/16


I hope fans still have plenty of holiday cash still handy because this week's haul of new comics is going to drain those funds quite rapidly. A new Falcom emeges in the pages of  'Captain America: Sam Wilson,' the 150 issue anniversary for 'The Walking Dead' drops, the gorgeous 'Legend of Wonder Woman' #1 makes the leap from digital to print, there's more 'Huck,' Robert Hack guests on 'The Black Hood,' Marguerite Bennett has two books out, trades for 'Princeless: Raven the Pirate Princess,' 'Shutter,' and 'Holy F*cked' are out today and new series 'Gutter Magic' #1 debuts. And that's just the beginning. Happy reading!
