New Comics This Week: Full Comics List For October 4, 2023

new comics this week october 4 2023

The new comics this week are ready to transform and roll out, and we’ve got your full comics list for October 4, 2023.

The biggie, in case you couldn’t figure it out from the opening paragraph, is Image Comics/Skybound’s Transformers #1. Written and drawn by Daniel Warren Johnson, the book has already reportedly sold over 150,000 copies to stores. That’s a lot of copies! Transformers is part of the new Energon Universe line of books, which includes Robert Kirkman’s Void Rivals, and the upcoming Duke comic, which I would like to think is a Gummi Bears comic but is actually G.I. Joe.

Over at Marvel there’s another biggie: G.O.D.S. #1, the highly hyped new book from Jonathan Hickman that hopes to “redefine the cosmology of the Marvel Universe.” Or in plain language, it’s going to take all of those cosmic and magic concepts and give ’em the ‘ol Hickman razzle-dazzle.

Though there’s some exciting stuff coming from DC, including Birds of Prey #2, and the continuing Gotham War storyline in Batman #138, it’s mostly a good week for reprints. You’ve got a bunch of free Halloween editions dropping in stores (IDW is also getting in on the action), and Geoff Johns’s JSA and The New Golden Age both get special editions.

More? You want… More?? Dark Horse has a trade collection of Where Monsters Lie, the great serial killer comedy from Kyle Starks. IDW has a book called Star Trek: Holo-Ween, which sounds pretty fun. And Image Comics also has Clementine, Vol. 2, Tillie Walden’s sequel to one of the best YA graphic novels of last year.
