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.

Matt C: Doomsday Clock enters its final act this week with issue #9. I've enjoyed the series immensely to this point - it's deftly overturned expectations at every stage and is gorgeous to look at - but there's no question that the staggered release schedule makes it difficult to fully immerse in the narrative. Of course that won't be a problem once the entire thing is collected and I suspect we'll only truly be able to judge it once it's complete and can be consumed in one sitting.

That problem doesn't affect Batman, which appears every fortnight, and after the largely forgettable crossover with Flash it's great to have Tom King back in the driving seat again to continue his mammoth run on the title. We do harp on about it a lot here, but for smart superhero storytelling it takes some beating at the moment.

Marvel has the first issue of a new miniseries, Meet The Skrulls, nicely timed to coincide with the release of Captain Marvel on Friday. I'll be honest and say it's the Marcos Martin cover that's got me most intrigued, but the blurb suggests it may be something along the lines of a Skrull version of the masterful TV series, The Americans, so that just adds to the appeal.

A Walk Through Hell #8 appears from Aftershock on Wednesday, and it's Garth Ennis showing us he can do slowburn creepiness and disturbing horror equally well, blending it all into an unnerving read. Deadly Class #37 arrives from Image, and whilst the TV show may not have caught the zeitgeist (I'm still on the fence with it), the comic book original remains one of Rick Remender's most potent creator-owned series.
