New Super Hero Comics On Sale: Week Of May 7


I hope everyone enjoyed Free Comic Book Day this past Saturday. It’s a celebration of everything we love about this art form and hobby, and it’s always a lot of fun.

I also hope you appreciated the free comics, because the assault on your wallet begins in earnest this week. For Marvel, it comes in the form of Original Sin, the summer event that begins with the death of Uatu, the Watcher, and will impact just about every hero. There are also some new first issues (take a bow, Cyclops and Miles Morales) and one of the first tests of Marvel’s “we’re going to disguise these mini-series by numbering them like the regular books but with a decimal point” with “Learning to Crawl” in Amazing Spider-Man #1.1.

DC counters with the second of its weekly series, New 52 Futures End. It’ll run through next March along with Batman Eternal and another weekly that hasn’t fired up yet. If you get them all, you’ll be spending some serious scratch for the next 10 months or so — but your LCS will thank you!

I can hear my wallet groaning already. Let’s try to block it out by getting to the list of new super hero comics on sale this week:
