The 4th of October sees the release of G.O.D.S. #1, from Marvel, Transformers #1, from Image and Batman #138, from DC Comics.

The 4th of October sees the release of G.O.D.S. #1, from Marvel Comics. The 4th of October sees the release of Transformers #1, from Image Comics. While we’re at it, the 3rd/4th of October sees the release of Batman #138, from DC Comics.

I have no idea which of these will sell the most in store, just that between them they will all sell very well indeed and in all likelihood top the charts.

The 4th of October also sees the release of Ranger Academy #1 from Boom Studios. And the release of Alice Cooper #1 from Dynamite. As well as the likes of X-Men #27, Abbot: 1979 #1, Birds Of Prey #2, Blue Beetle #2, DC’s Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun, Zatanna And The Ripper and more.

What I’m saying is that it might be quite the busy week for direct market comic book stores. And they could do with one of them right now…

SERIES PREMIERE. THE ALL NEW TRANSFORMERS ERA STARTS HERE! Superstar creator DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON (DO A POWERBOMB, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth), alongside ENERGON UNIVERSE showrunner ROBERT KIRKMAN (VOID RIVALS, INVINCIBLE), reimagines Hasbro’s robots in disguise for a brand-new generation. Optimus Prime was supposed to have led the Autobots to victory. Instead, the fate of Cybertron is unknown, and his allies have crash-landed far from home, alongside their enemies-the Decepticons. As these titanic forces renew their war on Earth, one thing is immediately clear: the planet will never be the same. New alliances are struck. Battle lines are redrawn. And humanity’s only hope of survival is Optimus Prime. Discover THE TRANSFORMERS like you’ve never seen them before! In Shops: Oct 04, 2023 SRP: $4.99
