There are a lot of comic books that come out every week, and it can be hard to try to navigate the waters to try to find something new, or for a first time reader, try to find a good starting point.

For this week, there are a lot of return titles, specifically from DC that will make an interest read. These are the comic books you should read for the week of March 20:

American Carnage No. 5

Writer: Bryan Hill

Artist: Leandro Fernandez

There was a major (!!!) twist at the end of American Carnage No. 4 that leaves the entire series’s direction up in the air, and was one of the most genuine and surprising comic book twists in a very long time. That makes American Carnage No. 5 the most anticipated comic of the week, and if you have yet to check it out, you should definitely read the previous four and get all caught up before issue five hits the stands. Writer Bryan Hill is doing an amazing job at keeping us on our toes and i’m all here for that.

Batman No. 67

Writer: Tom King

Artist: Lee Weeks

Recently, artist Lee Weeks’ rendition of Batman has been my favorite Batman in recent memory and lucky for us, he returns this week in Batman No. 67 to give us some more of that. As we learned in Batman No. 66, we got back on track and are moving along the “Knightmares” story line. Are we finally getting to the bottom of who poisoned Batman? Probably, but I don’t think it’ll be revealed in this issue, but the long, winding road writer Tom King usually takes us on is interesting.

Justice League No. 20

Writer: Scott Snyder

Artist: Jorge Jimenez

Alternate versions of heroes are always fun. So are future versions. And lucky for us, that is what we’re getting in Justice League No. 20 by writer Scott Snyder and artist Jorge Jimenez. Snyder, since he left Batman, has done a fantastic job exploring the infinite worlds of the DC Multiverse, Dark or regular, and has really added some depth to the universe we have never seen before. Jimenez’ art depicting the future versions of the Justice League, is something that is intriguing on its own. Can not wait for this issue!

Pearl No. 7

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Artist: Michael Gaydos

As I said with Cover, Brian Michael Bendis has left an indelible mark on DC already, even if time at the publishing company has been short. While his run on Superman and Action Comics have been great, his work on his creator-owned titles, like Pearl have really stood out. The first arc has just finished, so if you are looking for a jump in point for a great read, this would be the place, although I suggest reading the other six, as they are a interesting story about a tattoo artist turned accidental assassin.

Avengers No 17

Writer: Jason Aaron

Artist: David Marquez

The only Marvel title on the list this week, the Avengers continues to be one of the strongest books out right now. This seems to be the final chapter in the Vampire: Civil War storyline and I am excited to see where writer Jason Aaron takes us. C’mon. The Avengers versus vampires should be enough of a selling point for you guys to check this amazing run out.
