Hey, comic lovers! Happy second 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.

Free Comic Book Day was this past weekend, and some of the stories set up there waste no time in taking off. Meanwhile, other publishers are barrelling forward with new titles, new arcs, and ongoing arcs that continue to shock and excite.

DC is roaring out of the gate with titles that pick up on the events of Dark Nights: Metal, such as the introduction of the Dark Gods in Wonder Woman #46. The weekly event that will forever reshape the Justice League begins in Justice League: No Justice #1. And finally, the critically acclaimed, multiple sell-outs Batman: White Night comes to a close with Issue 8.

Marvel is red-hot right now too, beginning with the mystery that will involve all corners of the Marvel Universe as the search of the presumed dead Logan widens in Hunt for Wolverine: Adamantium Agenda #1. The Merc With the Mouth hits a major milestone in The Despicable Deadpool #300, while a fellow antihero begins a new chapter in Venom #1. Rounding out some of the publisher's biggest debuts is the adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi #1, which features deleted scenes not seen in the film.

Other notable releases include Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock #1 from BOOM! Studios (clap your cares away!), Dark Horse Comic's World of Tanks: Citadel #1, based on the popular video game, the start of a young Han Solo and Lando caper before the highly anticipated Solo: A Star Wars Story begins with IDW's Star Wars Adventures #10, a deadly crossover starts with Image Comics' Medieval Spawn and Witchblade #1, and Titan Publishing Group ushers in a new adventure set in the fan-favorite world of Warhammer 40,000 with Deathwatch #1.

May is here, and it's not waiting for summer to heat up! 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!
