It's new comic day's eve here at ComicBook.com, and with the myriad of excellent titles out on shelves right now, it can be easy to get a bit overwhelmed at the choices.
While your pull list might already be full, there are plenty of books that are worthy of your attention this Wednesday, including the seven books highlighted on this list. Whether the book is a great jumping-on point, a big finale, or just something different than the predominant superhero fare, there's something here for everyone.

Hawkeye, finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a battle royal between the world's most skilled sharpshooters - including an inexplicably young Clint Barton, A.K.A. the OTHER Hawkeye. The prize? Bragging rights for being named the best, of course - oh, and you get to stay alive! Unfortunately for Clint, several of his competitors are villains he's taken down, making HIM a primary target. So, on top of figuring out where and WHEN she is, Kate's got to find a way to win this little contest of skills and keep her not-so-old pal Clint out of the crosshairs - easy, peasy.
