Welcome back to our weekly comic book roundup! The first week of June has arrived, and it’s going to be a good one for superhero fans. 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. 

It’s a very Scott Snyder week at DC, as the writer’s Dark Nights: Metal event gets a hardcover collection while his new Justice League #1 with artist Jim Cheung continues to explore the fallout of that event. The lineup of heroes should look familiar to anyone who ever loved the Bruce Timm Justice League animated series, with the addition of Cyborg and Aquaman. According to Snyder, this is the start of a two-year mega epic, and we’re eager to see where it goes.

Meanwhile, Batman and Catwoman’s nuptials are getting closer in this week’s Batman #48, and we’ve also got an exclusive preview for Batman: Prelude to the Wedding - Nightwing vs. Hush #1, which you can read here.

For Marvel, it’s a week of relaunches for Doctor Strange, Deadpool, and The Immortal Hulk. You can read our exclusive preview of Doctor Strange #1 here as the good doctor prepares to venture into outer space to replenish his lost mystical powers. Mark Waid is writing the new Doctor Strange series alongside Jesus Saiz, an artistic superstar in the making.

Waid is also scripting the new Ant-Man and the Wasp #1, which features Scott Lang and the Unstoppable Wasp, Nadia van Dyne. Javier Garron is providing the art for that adventure, which finds Nadia attempting to rescue Scott from a dangerous fate. In fact, there’s quite a bit of Ant-Man and the Wasp-related comics this week, as Marvel gets ready for the movie next month.

Over at Image Comics, The Walking Dead #180 will bring the New World Order storyline to a close, and it’s always a good week when a new issue of Brian K. Vaughan and Cliff Chiang’s Paper Girls arrives in stores. At Dark Horse Comics, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1955 and Jenny Finn are collected as trade paperbacks. Dynamite’s Red Sonja/Tarzan #2 continues a very fun crossover story by Gail Simone and Walter Geovani. Finally, Titan is giving the Seventh Doctor his due in Doctor Who: The Seventh Doctor #1.

You can find the complete rundown for this week’s titles below. Let us know which ones you’re planning on getting in the comment section. Remember, always support your local comic book shop. They need you now more than ever. Happy reading, everyone!
