The best day of the week just got a lot better with a new round of awesome comics arriving in stores this week. Staff members at Major Spoilers are here to help you with your comic book selection this week, with their roundup of comics they recommend.

Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Cat Staggs
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: The mind-breaking crime fantasy continues! Slick Chicago hitman Cason Bennett and mousy Seattle housewife Juniper Blue have inexplicably switched bodies and lives, and a heartless, relentless killer seems intent on killing them both. Don’t miss this edge-of-your-seat thriller by fan-favorites GAIL SIMONE and CAT STAGGS!

MATTHEW: HOW DID I MISS ISSUE #1??? I’ve been looking forward to this book for months, and now, I guess I get two issues at the same time!

Writer: Gerard Way
Artist: Michael Allred
Publisher: DC Comics/Young Animal
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: How have you been, Niles Caulder? The Chief is back, and he’s ready to reshape the new Doom Patrol to be just like the old Doom Patrol – a prospect not everyone is happy with. But the team’s former leader hasn’t grown less manipulative in his old age, so nobody make any rash decisions. Pretty sure he’s up to something. Michael Allred (iZOMBIE, Silver Surfer) joins The team for this special issue.

MATTHEW: A favorite artist on a favorite new series? Okay, DC, ya talked me into it…

Writer: Doug Wagner
Artist: Daniel Hillyard, Laura Martin
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Edwyn takes a hostage of his own, changing all the rules of this bloodcurdling cat-and-mouse game. Will Virginia’s captors finally cut their losses and return her to Edwyn, or will there be more “death by plastic”?

CHRIS: Man this book is all kinds of screwy. Dark and twisted is putting it mildly. I love every page. If you want to read a comic about a crazy man out for revenge on the men who took his girlfriend (who happens to be a sex doll), this is the book for you.

Writer: John Barber
Artist: Fico Ossio
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: M.A.S.K. vs. ATOMIC MAN! The Revolutionaries team with MATT TRAKKER and the M.A.S.K. team to find Mike Power-a.k.a. ATOMIC MAN-the long-lost member of the G.I. JOE ADVENTURE TEAM. The bizarre history of this tragic hero leads to the truth behind “Project Ice Man”-and the return of another classic G.I. JOE hero!

MATTHEW: One step closer to the triumphant return of Bulletman, The Human Bullet!

Writer: Jody LeHeup, Sebastian Girner
Artist: Nil Vendrell
Publisher: Image Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Savage, wild-eyed bears are attacking cities across America, and only the Shirtless Bear-Fighter can stop them! But as Shirtless punches his way through wave after wave of not-so-friendly fozzies, one question looms large in his furious mind…just what is driving these bears so damn crazy? Enter…THE HILLBILLY WARLOCK!

CHRIS: If you can’t appreciate the greatness that is Shirtless Bear-Fighter, I feel bad and there really is no hope for you. Seriously, the name alone should make you want to read this. It’s awesome.

Writer: James Roberts
Artist: Jack Lawrence
Publisher: IDW Publishing
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: THE HUNT IS ON! Ever lost something and spent forever looking for it? Try visiting Troja Major, the lost property capital of the universe. Just bear in mind that it’s better known by another name: the Howling Town. And the Autobots are about to find out why.
*Retailers: See your order form for incentive information.

CHRIS: Lost Light continues to be the best Transformers book out now, maybe even ever. Rich with story, history and great characters, I can’t recommend this enough.
