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: I’m not sure what it says about me that a title like Something Is Killing The Children immediately snags my attention but a little further investigation of this new BOOM! Studios series doesn’t disappoint, as James Tynion IV is writing a horror story which looks delightfully unafraid to delve into the topic of child-stealing monsters, and features some lovely nominative determinism embodied in hero monster-killer Erica Slaughter. I’m not familiar with artist Werther Dell'Edera but the sample art looks suitably shadowy and gory, so I’ll give it a punt.

Breaking my only-one-new-start rule (c’mon, you all know my cavalier attitude to rules at this stage!), I’m also going to give Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy a little try: never having read either character previously, and having only just watched Suicide Squad this week (which was not worth the time spent but did explain why approximately 50% of all cosplayers at the first comic con I went to were sporting Daddy’s Little Monster shirts), I feel disposed to giving poor tortured Harley a little of my time - plus it’s only a six-parter so the relationship doesn’t have to go stale.

I’ll also try Dark Horse’s new start Everything; writer Christopher Cantwell is familiar from She Could Fly and Dark Horse have been trailing this new book in other series recently, suggesting one of those shiny happy Midtown America with a horrifically dark underside stories - a big appeal for me.

A set of slam-dunks to wrap up then: House Of X, Lois Lane and Superman: Up In The Sky have all raised the calibre of conversation at our monthly meets to a new level, and there might have been competition among these mighty heavyweights for the read-last-and-savour spot on my list but the Doomsday Clock finally strikes eleven this week, BONG! It is undeniably hard work keeping up with the complexities of Geoff Johns’ masterfully crafted saga with such large gaps between the issues but I’m not grumbling! I’m on tenterhooks to see how the story comes together ready for the denouement.
