It's always tough heading into the comic book store on New Comic Wednesdays - you just want to buy everything on the shelves!
If you're on a budget, it can be difficult to pick and choose which comics to buy, and which ones to wait and read in trade form.
While we encourage buying any comic you can, we thought it'd be nice to point out five issues released this Wednesday that garner our stamp of approval.
If you're heading to your local comic book store, and you're not sure what to pick up, check out these five comics we recommend buying this week!
Doctor Aphra #2
Written by Kieron Gillen and illustrated by Kev Walker, Doctor Aphra is the newest Star Wars series from Marvel comics.
The series follows Dr. Aphra - a bad-ass archeologist introduced in the Darth Vader comics - as she and her crew adventure across the galaxy.
The series does an impeccable job of mixing new characters and ideas with classic Star Wars themes, and it's gearing up to be one of the best the series has to offer.prevnext
Locke & Key: It's A Small World #1
Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez ended their legendary Locke & Key series over three years ago, and they've returned this week for the third one-shot comic from the world of Keyhouse.
The original Locke & Key story follows the Locke children as they explore the mystical secrets of their father's childhood home. It's A Small World explores one of the stories from the house's rich history.
This comic explores the mysterious Dollhouse key, and the children that were caught up in its deadly delights.
Locke & Key is an incredibly fun series that manages to find unparalleled levels of depth with its art and content.prevnext
Matt Kindt brought the world of Ether to life in last month's debut issue, and #2 takes the story to even more exciting levels.
Ether follows a man caught between the excitement of a world he can't stay in, and the terror of a reality he can't escape.
This comic provides so much truth about fitting in and finding our place in the world, while still telling an incredibly imaginitive tale along the way.prevnext
Mighty Captain Marvel #0
Captain Marvel is going to be a tentpole for Marvel films in the near future, so it makes sense that the studio is going forward with a new comic featuring the character.
The new Captain Marvel series is written by Margaret Stohl and illustrated by Emilio Laiso and Ramon Rosanas, and it does a great job of capturing the strength and beauty of Carol Danvers.
To be honest, it's also just an incredibly fun time.prevnext
