New comics are due to hit the shelves on Wednesday so here’s a look ahead at some of the books we’ll be picking up this week along with a full list of titles that will be available from Paradox Comics.

Kenny J: A new movie quite often brings a new comic title and this year’s Captain Marvel is no exception. I am as excited for the latter as I am for its celluloid equivalent. Apart from being a fan of the many masks of Carol Danvers, the fact that Kelly Thompson is writing this new book is enough of a reason for me to pick it up this coming week. She has been consistently great on the new West Coast Avengers book, bringing a mix of humour and action that would definitely fit a Captain Marvel book.

This is the week where I finally do what all of us comic fans should have been doing since issue #50 and that is picking up Batman #62. It's been a while since I’ve read the main Dark Knight book; Tom King's initial stories didn't work for me, but having now read Mister Miracle and Heroes In Crisis it is time to listen to my PCG colleagues.

The adaptation of William Gibson's Alien 3 script has exactly the right mix of politics, science fiction and horror. We are yet to see an adult Xenomorph but there is a different kind of nasty happening in Gibson's original story and that enough for me to come back for the third issue. I was also impressed by Jed Mackay's writing on this past week’s Man Without Fear so I'm braving the weekly schedule on this book and picking up issue #2 as I'm really intrigued to see whose injuries heal - will it be Matt Murdock's or Daredevil's?

Those are my picks for this week but there is far more coming to your local comic book store this Wednesday...
