New Comics for October 09 2019
The books below are merely the ones that I plan on reading and/or pointing out to friends new to the hobby. To see everything out this week, check out Diamond Comics New Releases list for Wednesday October 9, 2019.
Notable this Week
The Batman’s Grave #1 (of 12) (DC Comics)
Warren Ellis is an all-time favorite comic writer of mine. Most of my favorites from him involve characters/teams he’s either created himself, or put such a spin on that he sets the new bar.
Anyway, I don’t generally read Batman, but… recently, DC has been bringing in stellar talent I do follow, for one-off Batman mini/maxi-series.
Cannon or not, I’ve enjoyed Batman’s Damned, Last Knight on Earth, and White Knight. Likewise I look forward to Joker Killer Smile.
So when Warren Ellis reunites with Bryan Hitch for a 12-issue Batman series? Yes – I’m in.

My Pull List
These are the books I’m buying this week.
The Batman’s Grave #1 DC Comics $3.99
The World’s Greatest Detective must try to inhabit the mind of a murder victim to solve a case—without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents. Can Batman imagine the life of a corpse with a half-eaten face without dying himself?
Black Hammer / Justice League: Hammer of Justice #4 Dark Horse Comics $3.99
The out-of-shape and out-of-practice Black Hammer heroes must contend with a suspicious Justice League as Colonel Weird and the Green Lanterns try to unravel the mystery at the heart of this dimensional switch—and the DC heroes marooned in Black Hammer Farm make a surprising discovery that may offer them answers.
Edgar Allan Poe’s Snifter Of Terror Season 2 #1 Ahoy Comics $3.99
AHOY Comics’ snarky anthology/desecration of Edgar Allan Poe returns for a new season – beginning with the ultimate Poe mashup! In Dean Motter’s The Tell-Tale Black Cask of Usher, the drink-addled writer falls prey to his own horrific imagination. Hunt Emerson offers another slapstick Poe and the Black Cat. A selection of horrific prose and pictures rounds out the issue.
Event Leviathan #5 DC Comics $3.99
It’s the reveal of the biggest mystery of the summer. Who is Leviathan? And what is their true goal? You’re going to find out here! Plus, Lois Lane had a whole other team working this story the entire time, and — oh man! — someone found something!
Sonata #5 Image Comics $3.99
Sonata is dangerously ill, and her survival is in the hands of the deranged Korbys and his dubious expertise in herbal remedies. Meanwhile, an unexpected visitor brings catastrophic news from the Tayan home world.
Thumbs #5 (of 5) Image Comics $4.99
The grand finale—and grand it is! Thumbs and MOM, reeling from personal loss and with their backs against the wall, put everything on the line.
That wraps up my highlight of New Comics for October 09 2019. Want more like this? I do my best to call out all the books on my radar each week over in the New Comics thread.
