For many Paste readers, the end of the holidays means a return to the work grind. But one of my own favorite reprieves from a hectic work week falls on Wednesday—as if the comics gods expected that readers would need a pick-me-up and decided that Hump Day would also be the day that comics are shelved nationally. For starters, Kelly Sue DeConnick’s excellent Bitch Planet is set to return in full force this week with a prequel issue, while G. Willow Wilson and Jorge Molina’s A-Force will relaunch with a new issue #1 after last summer’s Secret Wars miniseries. We’re also set for exciting new titles from Image, Heavy Metal and BOOM! Studios. Check them out in the gallery, and tweet us your favorites.
