Art by Andrea Mutti With armed intruders in his apartment and an eerie supernatural creature in his bed, Tyler Severin feels like his life couldn't get much worse.

Average Critic Score: 8.8/10
"The team of Tobin and Mutti have found a rich vein of new and unique material that leaves you feeling unsettled after reading it as all the best horror should." - BGCP
4. Bitter Root #15 Written by David Walker and Chuck Brown. Art by Sanford Greene.
"LEGACY," Part Five-The third arc of the Eisner Award-winning BITTER ROOT comes to an epic conclusion that will decide the fate of humanity. For the Sangerye family, it means making another sacrifice while searching for hope during hopeless times.
Average Critic Score: 8.9/10
"Greene masters every page and panel of this issue with beautiful and brilliantly detailed art. The visuals are so immersive and compelling. I love the look of this book and the series as a whole." - The Super Powered Fancast
"While the conclusion felt a bit rushed, I still loved this comic as a whole and I hope that it won't be too long until we see the next generation of Sangerye continue the fight." - Comicbook.com
3. Daredevil #33 Written by Chip Zdarksy. Art by Marco Checcetto
• Elektra faces her greatest challenge as DAREDEVIL yet, as a serial killer is on the loose in Manhattan and killing innocent people.
• But even the deadliest assassin in the Marvel Universe is at somewhat of a loss, because this killer can be in more than one place at one time. A team? A mutant? Or something else entirely? Whoever or whatever they are, they have a thirst for blood, and Elektra will put herself directly in their sights!
• PLUS: Matt Murdock faces challenges of his own in prison after being exposed to a dangerous and experimental compound called RE-CID that makes those subjected to it more aggressive and violent. Whatever happens, one thing is certain - Daredevil isn't getting time off for good behavior...
Average Critic Score: 9.0/10
"There are also some fascinating pieces of dialogue and plot threads around the other characters involved in the book, including one that will take the comic in a completely different direction." - But Why Tho?
"Even for an issue without more than a single glimpse of its leading man, it certainly sets expectations sky high with another intimidating final splash - one readers have every reason to believe will (once again) pay dividends in Daredevil #34." - Comicbook.com
2. Mighty Morphin #10 Written by Ryan Parrot. Art by Dan Mora
Discover Zordon's ties to Bandora's Palace on the Moon - the modern home of Rita Repulsa.
When an assassin is sent to disrupt the Eltarian efforts to protect an ancient weapon Zordon is injured in the process and his mentor, Zophram, must make a decision that will alter the future of the Power Rangers as we know it!
Average Critic Score: 9.0/10
"The implications of this issue are huge, especially for longtime Power Rangers fans. Mighty Morphin #10 is an exciting issue because it fleshes out the world of Zordon thousands of years ago, but also establishes how current villains came to be and where their motivations lie." - AIPT
"Mighty Morphin #10 sets the table for some big things to come, and it did so with impact and style." - Comicbook.com
1.The Silver Coin #5 by Michael Walsh For the fifth installment of horror anthology THE SILVER COIN from MICHAEL WALSH, CHIP ZDARSKY, KELLY THOMPSON, ED BRISSON, and JEFF LEMIRE, the story reaches back to when the coin's cruel curse was first minted. In a small New England village, a woman has been accused of witchcraft.
Average Critic Score: 9.1/10
"The Silver Coin is a sobering, horrific read and by far one of the best comic series I’ve ever read." - Comics: The Gathering
"The Silver Coin #5 is a good example of moody horror that sneaks up and captures your interest. The story may involve a witch during a time when they were hanged and use themes familiar to us, but it still finds the unease and horror in the simpler lives of yore." - AIPT
