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

BLOODSHOT SALVATION #10
Writer: Jeff Lemire
Artist: Doug Braithwaite
Publisher: Valiant Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Two thousand years in the future – in the year 4001 A.D. – the man once known as Ray Garrison is no more…but the microscopic nanites inside him live on. Enter Bloodshot 4001 – a strange, gunslinging echo of Bloodshot’s mind, body, and soul that is now more machine than man. But when our century’s Bloodshot finds himself delivered to the dawn of the 41st century with one last mission to fulfill, two Valiant legends will finally come face to face…just as the secret revelation that binds them together across the ages will forever reshape Bloodshot’s place at the center of the Valiant Universe!

STACY: Bloodshot is great, and this far future story is amazing. With a new story arc beginning this issue, it’s a great jumping on point.

DETECTIVE COMICS #982
Writer: Michael Moreci
Artist: Sebastian Fiumara
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $2.99
SOLICITATION: “The Cursing of Gotham City!” The abduction of a child by a strange, militant, religious sect of Gotham’s homeless takes Batman into the city’s darkest subterranean tunnels… and into the upside-down world of the vicious spirit Deacon Blackfire!

STEPHEN: DEACON BLACKFIRE IS BACK!? Sure, there is the child abduction angle, which is super problematic, but seriously, DEACON FREAKIN’ BLACKFIRE!? I’m in!

MARVEL RISING: ALPHA #1
Writer: Devin Grayson
Artist: Georges Duarte
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $4.99
SOLICITATION: This summer, SQUIRREL GIRL meets MS. MARVEL – for the very first time! When Doreen Green (also known as the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl) volunteers as head counselor for an extracurricular computer programming class, little does she know that junior counselor Kamala Khan moonlights as crimefighting super hero Ms. Marvel! But this coding configuration is more than just ones and zeros when a mysterious new super villain shows her face! Will our heroes be able to save the day without blowing their secret identities? Join Ms. Marvel and Squirrel Girl (with some special guest appearances) as they learn what it truly takes to become the next generation of Marvel heroes!

MATTHEW: The best things to happen to Marvel in years, together for the first time? Yeah, okay, I’m in!

Nancy Drew #1NANCY DREW #1
Writer: Kelly Thompson
Artist: Jenn St-Onge
Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment
Cover Price: $3.99
(Read the review here)
SOLICITATION: Nancy Drew is seventeen and good at everything…ESPECIALLY solving crimes. But her totally-in-control-and-obviously-running-perfectly- smooth-(but-not-really) life hits a snag when a mysterious message drags her back to the hometown she left behind. There she’ll have to find out which of her friends are still her friends, which are enemies, and who exactly is trying to kill her…and (hopefully) stop them before they succeed. KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits) team up to present an all-new modern spin on a classic mystery icon!

INGRID: I have been a fan of Nancy Drew since I was a kid. Who doesn’t love a mystery story? I am excited to see a new take on her, plus, the art looks really fun.

STACY: Solid start with some good fun and great art. Really waiting to see how this one goes.

STEPHEN: I really enjoyed the heck out of Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys: The Big Lie when Dynamite released it last year, so I’m hoping this book continues with that kind of storytelling.

PLASTIC MAN #1
Writer: Gail Simone
Artist: Adriana Melo
Publisher: DC Comics
Cover Price: $3.99
SOLICITATION: Meet Eel O’Brian: a petty thug, thief and con artist who runs a strip club. Hey, he’s also dead, at least according to the gang that tossed him out like last week’s garbage. Literally. Don’t worry, though-he bounced back from all that, and now he’s trying to make a new life for himself, but the effort is stretching him pretty thin. How can he get revenge on his old boss, keep a street kid out of trouble, make a dancer fall in love with him and stop a mysterious society from taking over the world? Eel has no idea!

MATTHEW: He a stretch.

STEPHEN: I think it is safe to say that Plastic Man has gotten a whole new lease on life with his appearances on Batman: Brave and the Bold, and with the rumors that flew around during the first season of The Flash (we got Elongated Man instead), it makes perfect sense to grab this book.

THOR #1
Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Christian Ward
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Cover Price: $5.99
SOLICITATION: JASON AARON & MIKE DEL MUNDO TAKE THE PRINCE OF ASGARD IN A WHOLE NEW DIRECTION! Thor Odinson has regained his mantle – and with it, a wild new world of trouble on his mighty hands! The artifacts of Asgard have been scattered across the earth, and to reclaim them, Thor will have to face some ugly truths. Like the production cost of hundreds of new hammers! And the Thunder God is going to need every last one of them if he’s going to stop the unstoppable Juggernaut. Jason Aaron takes the Prince of Asgard in a whole new direction with YOUNG GUN artist Mike Del Mundo joining him at the helm! And don’t miss the latest chapter of the King Thor saga with acclaimed BLACK BOLT artist Christian Ward, as the Thor of the far future encounters an old friend who’s undergone some startling changes.

MATTHEW: I will miss the Jane Foster era of Thor, but Aaron is still the writer and there’s wild, weird stuff on the horizon. I’m looking forward to seeing Goldilocks back in action.
