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.

Jo S: Let's start out with the start-outs this time: I'm taking the easy route on a couple of fresh starts on Wednesday, with Tommy Gun Wizards #1 and Mountainhead #1, each of which kicks off one of those short, low-commitment miniseries which feel nice and manageable. I talked about Tommy Gun Wizards for the Shipping Forecast; Mountainhead is the new start for John Lees, creator of one of my favourite comics, Sink, and promises a paranoid father and son, living off the grid, in the wilds of Canada. I'm not familiar with artist Ryan Lee yet but, as it's Lees in the lead, I'm guessing colourist Doug Garbark is going to need a lot of red.

I'm also going to pick up the new Fantastic Four: 4 Yancy Street this week. I've yet to read any extensive FF, having failed to be grabbed by Dan Slott's approach this time last year, but this one, helmed by Gerry Duggan, sounds like it could be a giggle: Greg Smallwood's cover art looks toony (in a good way) so I'm interested to see if Luciano Vecchio takes a similar approach on the inside.

Following the announcement of Moon Knight and, at last, She-Hulk TV series for Disney+, I can't really turn down a She-Hulk Annual, so that thunders into my list as well, splintering my 'one issue #1' rule into smithereens and, of course, I will need to make space for the phenomenon that is Marvel Comics #1000 - an 80-page spectacular, showcasing 80 creative teams, celebrating 80 years since the then-named Timely Comics #1 first hit the stands. One page per team seems wildly unlikely to produce anything cohesive but, WOW, the sheer ambition of it!

My regular Ice Cream Man scoop of horror and the excellent Thanos series bring my list near completion but the final word goes to the last issue of Bone Parish. I don't think I've talked about this series enough: it has managed, issue on issue, to keep me interested, with twists and family machinations bound with just enough scares to set my nerves jangling. I'll miss this one.
