Tomorrow marks the first Wednesday in February, and you know what that means—New Comic Book Day! Every week on Wednesday there are hundreds of comics released from dozens of publishers, and we’ve got the list of releases from the industry’s biggest publishers to help you make your shopping list for your trip to your local comic book shop this Wednesday.

Love is in the air this week, to be sure. DC has a unique take on their monsters and aliens in the one-shot Young Monsters in Love, BOOM! Studios' Backstagers give us a peek behind the scenes in a special Backstagers 2018 Valentine's Intermission, Image kicks off a weekly four-part mini-series in Twisted Romance #1, and star-crossed mutants Rogue and Gambit go way back to the beginning of their love story in Issue 2 of their series from Marvel.

February may be full of love, but the action is also heating up across comics from every publisher, too. Marvel finds the newly returned Jean Grey forming her own team to face a threat that could destroy the legacy of Charles Xavier in X-Men: Red #1, as well as the upcoming Infinity event gaining momentum with Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock #1. Superman and his son take to the stars to try and prevent another Krypton-like planetwide destruction as a new arc begins in Superman #40 from DC.

Image Comics debuts a world where war is a spectator sport in the deadly VS. Not to be outdone, the disorderly immortal Archer gathers some of Valiant Entertainment's biggest names to go on a tour of his greatest escapades (if they want to or not) in Armstrong and the Vault of Secrets.

Some incredible adventures, legendary runs, and mind-blowing events are collected in trade paperback and hardcover formats debuting this week, including BOOM! Studios' presentation of The Expanse: Original Graphic Novel, containing all-new stories by series creator James S.A. Corey and others; a trip inside one of comics' most inventive creators' mind with Inside Moebius Volume 1 from Dark Horse; the superstar team of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale have their complete Challengers of the Unknown in one volume from DC; a race against the whodunit clock in IDW's Clue; the TARDIS finds a way to gather all the Doctors and many of their companions -- and enemies -- together in Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension Book One; and everyone's favorite conscience-conflicted space archaeologist, Doctor Aphra, gets her hands on an ancient Jedi artifact ... which can only mean trouble in Doctor Aphra and the Enormous Profit.

Take a gander at all of this week's offerings, put together your pull list, and say what you plan on getting this week in the comments! Happy reading!
