    This week in comics we have a HUGE week, and one that brings a lot of unheralded gems as well as some seriously top books. I’m taking the reins for this edition, and I’ll be changing the format a bit because I’m an anarchist like that. So look after the jump for a list of all of the books that are coming out this week, along with my personal touch: I’ve bolded all of the books that I highly recommend or find very interesting.

    Check it out!
