New Release Comics - Wednesday, September 8

With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens less than 100 days away, excitement is building for one of the biggest franchises around. Part of that excitement is Star Wars: Shattered Empire #1 by Greg Rucka and Marco Checchetto. For the first time in comics since the new Star Wars cannon became, well, cannon, readers will be shown the events that occurred after Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Find out the chaos of an Empire shattered after the destruction of the second Death Star! And for more from what Disney is calling the "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens," you'll want to check out the new novel Star Wars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig!

Look up to the skies for BOOM!'s new series Diesel #1 by Tyson Hesse. Diesel is a coming of age story about a girl named Diandra Diesel. He father was a man of great reputation and owned a successful company. Unfortunately, he's now dead, and Diandra's childhood rival inherited the family business because she just doesn't seem to have a talent for anything except garbage duty. That all changes when a mysterious flying engine comes crashing in to her life! Oh yeah, did I mention this comic has airships? It has airships!

And the moment you've all been waiting for is here, Bruce Wayne is back as Batman in Batman #44 by Scott Snyder and Jock! At least for this issue, as readers get a look into Wayne's past as Batman investigating a case in the Narrows. This all ties-in to the origin story of the latest Batman's newest villain: Mr. Bloom! Don't miss this exciting, revealing, and amazingly illustrated issue (yay Jock!).

And that's just a small taste of this week's books! You can see the rest of the release below. See you on Wednesday!
