Welcome back to our weekly comic book roundup! The final week in May is anything but quiet, as there are still hundreds of titles available from a variety of sources. That’s why we’ve broken down the new comics from the biggest publishers in the industry to help you put together your ultimate pull list. 

Marvel’s flagship hero is reaching a milestone issue this week with Amazing Spider-Man #800, by Dan Slott and a killer lineup of artists including Humberto Ramos, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Jim Cheung, and Stuart Immonen. This is Slott’s penultimate Spidey tale after a decade on the book, and it’s also the finale of the Red Goblin storyline that gave Norman Osborn the powers of the Carnage symbiote.

Solo fans may also be interested in Marvel’s Star Wars: Lando - Double or Nothing #1, by writer Rodney Barnes and artist Paolo Villanelli. You can also check out our exclusive preview of X-Men Red Annual #1 by Tom Taylor and Pascal Alixe.

At DC, writer Brian Michael Bendis is kicking off his Superman run with Man of Steel #1. Ivan Reis and Joe Prado will provide the art for the first issue, which will set up Superman’s new status quo and a few mysteries as well. Geoff Johns and Gary Frank’s Doomsday Clock #5 is continuing its Watchmen meets DC heroes storyline as it nears the midway point.

DC is also releasing another series of hilariously bizarre Hanna-Barbera teamup one-shots, including Aquaman/Jabberjaw #1 and Black Lightning/Hong Kong Phooey #1. SYFY WIRE has an exclusive preview of Green Arrow Annual #2, a tie-in issue for Justice League: No Justice #4, which also hits this week. 

Image Comics is closing out May with a very strong week by offering new issues of Descender, Hack/Slash Resurrection, Kill or Be Killed, Lazarus, Saga, and Stray Bullets: Sunshine and Roses. Dark Horse Comics has the penultimate issue of Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook’s Harrow County #31, as well as a deluxe edition of Will Eisner’s A Contract With God. At IDW, the battle between the crew of the Enterprise and their Mirror Universe counterparts comes to an end in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror #5. You can read our exclusive preview of that book here
