(Joe's Pick) American Carnage from DC COMICS written by Bryan Edward Hill with art by Leandro Fernandez                    

A new, thrilling crime saga from the writer of WILDSTORM: MICHAEL CRAY and the artist of The Old Guard! Disgraced FBI agent Richard Wright is offered a chance for redemption when his old mentor sends him undercover to infiltrate a white supremacist group believed to be responsible for the death of a fellow agent.                       

(Brian's Pick) Middlewest from IMAGE COMICS written by Skottie Young with art by Jorge Corona                      

The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics. Mistakes have been made, and in this NEW ONGOING SERIES, an unwitting adventurer searches for answers to quell a coming storm that knows his name.

From author SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Feathers, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack) comes the tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family's history.                             

(Rod's Pick) Prodigy from IMAGE COMICS written by Mark Millar with art by Rafael Albuquerque                              

Edison Crane's not content being the world's smartest man and most successful businessman-his brilliant mind needs to be constantly challenged. He's a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, genius composer, Olympic athlete, an expert in the occult, and now international governments are calling on him to fix problems they just can't handle.                                     

(Rebekah's Pick) Winter Soldier from MARVEL COMICS written by Kyle Higgins with art by Rod Reis                        

Bucky Barnes believes in second chances. Having escaped death, the loss of identity, and a life of murder, the man known as the Winter Soldier has worked hard to atone for his sins. But now...he's going to go one step further. What do you do when you've found redemption? You help others do the same.

From KYLE HIGGINS (Nightwing, Power Rangers, C.O.W.L.) and ROD REIS (SECRET EMPIRE, DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION, C.O.W.L.) comes the next chapter in the saga of the Winter Soldier. He's becoming a "fixer," working to help others leave behind lives of crime. It's Bucky's way of channeling his own pain in a productive, personal helping others find the redemption that he found. However, as Bucky is going to learn, not all paths are the same...and not everyone can be "saved." Rated T+
