New comics for the week of May 23, 2018

Comic lovers, welcome to the fourth week of May! Every week there are hundreds of comics released from dozens of publishers, and we’ve got the rundown of releases from the industry’s biggest players to help you make your pull list for the trip to your local comic book shop.

This week is a major milestone as one of the top stories of the year comes to fruition: Brian Michael Bendis' last issue for Marvel drops in Invincible Iron-Man #600, truly marking the end of an era, as he makes his move to DC.

Deadpool fever is sweeping the nation and Marvel is in on the action with the third issue of the mind-bending "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style miniseries You Are Deadpool #3. And we'd be crazy not to mention the launch of Black Panther #1, taking the King of Wakanda to out-of-this-world heights... literally!

DC has the beginnings of the end of major storylines for two of its flagship titles as Detective Comics #981 launches "Batmen Eternal" — the conclusion of James Tynion IV's Batman epic run — and Joshua Williamson pits Wally vs. Barry in a battle that's been brewing as "Flash War Part 1" speeds its way into the pages of Flash #47.

Fans of Lucifer (whose fate remains in the air) should definitely check out Skyward #2 (don't worry, the sold-out first issue is back in stock this week, too) by that series' showrunner Joe Henderson. Playing Dark Souls? Then Titan's Dark souls: Age of Fire #1 is a can't miss! IDW has two new books launching with Delta 13 #1 and a new addition to the TMNT universe in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Urban Legends #1. BOOM!'s critical and fan darling Lumberjanes reaches the issue 50 milestone, and Valiant's X-O Manowar #15 lends itself to the perfect jumping-on point with a hot new arc!

May might be winding down, but the comic's world is on fire! All of these comics are hitting shelves this week plus many more, including some great omnibuses and collected editions from virtually every publisher. Peruse the full listings of all this week's offerings, put together your pull list, and say what you plan on getting this week in the comments. Happy reading!
