New comics for the week of February 28, 2018

It's already the end of February, comic lovers! The last Wednesday in February, which means: New Comic Book Day! Every week on Wednesday 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.

Just because February is coming to a close doesn't mean that comics are. This month is full of new arcs, new launches, and great jumping-on points! AfterShock brings the next chapter of the Rough Riders in a new miniseries, Labyrinth fans rejoice as BOOM! continues the classic story in Coronation #1, Giles takes front and center in Dark Horse's newest season of Buffy the Vampier Slayer. DC has a trio of can't miss with the Trial of Batwoman beginning in Detective Comics#975, while the Teen Titans find themselves evicted and on the hunt for a new home in their latest issue, and The Terrifics debut as they spin out of Drak Nights: Metal.

The team-up from hell begins in Dynamite's KISS/Army of Darkness #1, IDW pits classic heroes against one another in GI Joe vs The Six-Million Dollar Man #1, and Saga returns with a new arc in issue 49!  The lovable teleporting dog, Lockjaw, gets his own mini, Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man hits the 300 issue benchmark with a slew of tales from top level creative teams, and Darth Vader faces a new menace just as he's completed building his lightsaber in issue 12 of his title, all from Marvel. Finally, X-O Manowar hits a pivotal moment in his future in Valiant's latest installment.

We, sadly, do have to bid a few fond farewells as February passes, probably the most notable is IDW's publishing of ElfQuest's decade's-long run in The Final Quest #24. Wendy and Richard Pini have dedicated a good part of their lives to this series, which is an international fan-favorite and best-seller, but it's time for the Wolfriders, other elven tribes, and foes to complete their destiny. You will be missed, Cutter and company.

So get to it, SYFY-ers! Peruse the full listings of all this week's offerings, put together your pull list, and say what you plan on getting this week, and what you thought of the books you read, in the comments. Happy reading!
