It's Wednesday (August 24) which means one amazing thing: new comic book day! PopWrapped is here to help you decide which comics to pick up this week by letting you know which ones are on our list. This week takes readers to a magical wild west, introduces us to a few evil exes, and teaches us a few things about computer sciences too.
Kingsway West #1
Written by: Greg Pak
Art by: Mirko Colak
From the writer of Batman/Superman and The Totally Awesome Hulk comes a new series set in a fantastical Wild West like one we've never seen before. The protagonist, a Chinese gunslinger, is an ex-con looking to reunite with his wife, dealing with magic, racism, and a persistent woman with a magic sword. The preview art for this unique new series looks stunning and the premise is incredibly intriguing.
Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #9
Written by: Kate Leth
Art by: Brittney Williams
Hedy Wolfe enlists two of Patsy's evil exes in an attempt to win the feud raging between the two women. It's up to Patsy and her friends to figure out how to ensure the evil due doesn't cause havoc to Patsy's new life. This is a terrific series, with an intro page so well done that you can almost pick up any issue and know where you are in the story. Definitely worth spending your hard earned cash on this week.
Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #10
Written by: Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare
Art by: Natacha Bustos
One of the best new series from Marvel features the universe's smartest character - Moon Girl. This issue guest stars another one of Marvel's beloved new(er) characters, Ms. Marvel. Lunella somehow swamped minds with Devil Dinosaur, but no one knows exactly why, or how. The mystery is deepened with the involvement of Kid Kree.
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #11
Written by: Ryan North
Art by: Erica Henderson
When you hear someone lament the fact that comic books simply aren't funny anymore, hand them a copy of Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. North handles heavy topics and light ones with ease, and never strays too far from humour. The footnotes on each page alone are worth the cost of the book. This is a standalone issue, exploring Squirrel Girl's major - computer science. The solicit promises that by the end of the issue you'll see Squirrel Girl take down Count Nefaria and know some of the fundamentals of computer science. Education and entertainment?! Definitely worth grabbing this week.

Detective Comics #939
Written by: James Tynion IV
Art by: Eddy Barrows and Eber Ferreira
Batman, Batwoman, and the rest of their team know exactly what the Colony is planning. Now they have to formulate a plan to take them down. The solicit promises incredible action, and an unbelievable last page.
