As we close out this last week of August, there are some great new comics coming out this Wednesday. Harlan Ellison’s City of the Edge of Forever continues in this third issue of the original Star Trek teleplay. Iceman goes on the offensive in All-New X-Men #31. A new story arc begins in RAI #4 by Matt Kindt and Clayton Crain. The hit animated series from FOX gets its own comic, Bob’s Burgers #1 by Loren Bouchard. And Image Comics’ smash hit continues, a strange drug offers solace as the underwater city of Salus runs out of air and time in Low #2. We’ve sorted through this week’s comic book releases to bring you in no particular order the five comic books that you should simply not miss this week!
Harlan Ellison’s Hugo- and WGA Award-winning teleplay, visualized for the first time! Stranded in the past of old Earth, Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock search for the focal point that altered the timestream and changed everything about the universe they knew. And once they find her, they could find themselves foiled by a force even greater than the Guardians of Forever – love!

The underwater city of Salus, humanity’s last refuge, is running out of air and time. Poverty, disease, and corruption are rampant, and the church of Optimolgy can offer no solace as powerful as hard cream, the strange drug that keeps the bleak realities at bay. Police Inspector Marik Cain has sunk so low into that haze; should an opportunity for hope present itself, can he rise again?
