5. Second Chances #1 $3.99 Image Comics
Second Chances Hotline - call now and get a new identity! All you need is some cash, a proper referral, and a very good reason to start over. When Leblanc, the man behind the hotline, is approached by a shady figure from his past, he's forced to accept a new client who doesn't meet any of the requirements - a client with chemically induced amnesia in desperate need of protection. Up-and-coming writer RICKY MAMMONE and artist MAX BERTOLINI (The Witcher, Nathan Never) explode onto the scene with this psychedelic, action-packed, bizarre noir that feels like John Wick punching through an existential French New Wave fever dream.

4. Killer Queens #1 $3.99 Dark Horse Comics
Meet Max and Alex. Reformed intergalactic assassins for hire. On the run. Also super gay. Their former boss--a fluffy monkey with a jetpack--is hot on their tail to take back his stolen ship. They gotta eat, so they take a mission from Alex's old flame. Your standard no-kill, casualty-free kidnapping recovery from a nearby moon. Only complication? Half the moon is ruled by a fascist dictator hostile to foreigners. They're the Killer Queens, so what could possibly go wrong?

3. Power Rangers #10 $3.99 Boom! Studios
Yale, the Omega Rangers' alien companion, embarks on a solo mission to protect a group of kids from the terrors of Safe haven. Guided by the voice of the Blue Emissary, Yale will travel closer to his destiny but what does this mean for the Omega Rangers?

2. Batman Catwoman #6 (of 12) $4.99 DC Comics
As mysteries deepen, so do resentments. Throughout her life, Catwoman's actions have caused many close to her to doubt her motivations. Bruce Wayne, Phantasm, and now her daughter have all had their suspicions about her deals with The Joker. And when she killed the old clown, did it trigger this feline's ninth life? Or maybe it was really over all those years ago, the first time Phantasm drew her blood and Batman had to face a harsh truth. There are big revelations waiting to be found here at the halfway point in Tom King and Clay Mann's final word on the Bat/Cat romance!

1. Black Cat #9 $3.99 Marvel Comics
'INFINITY SCORE' Continues! The hottest new character of the last five years, STAR, brings her reality-warping powers to bear in THE BLACK CAT! Who hired Felicia to do this job? Why do they want this infinite power?  AND HOW DOES FELICIA THINK SHE IS GOING TO LIVE THROUGH THIS?
