New comics for the week of May 16, 2018

Hey, comic lovers! It's the third week of May and there are some great comics hitting shelves. 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.

First, love is in the air as Kitty Pryde and Colossus prepare to tie the knot in X-Men: The Wedding Special #1, which sees the return of legendary X-Scribe Chris Claremont! The fastest mutant alive gets his own mini-series as Quicksilver: No Surrender explores what happened to the speedster after he vanished at the end of the Avengers mega-event. And the Hunt for Wolverine gets deadly as his greatest foes team up to put Logan back in the grave in The Claws of a Killer #1.

DC finds a big launch coming right out of the pages of Dark Night: Metal as the New Challengers come forth with a mission that could save — or cost — the lives of millions. Speaking of the DC event that reshaped the multiverse, fear not if you missed out on some early issues as Dark Days: The Road To Metal TP collects all the key moments that led to the crossover. Team Entropy, as formed by Braniac and led by Batman, takes center stage in the ramp-up to the Justice League's new status quo, No Justice #2.

The Archies take their curtain call in issue 7 this week, but not without a face-off with Josie and the Pussycats, Warren Ellis launches an FBI horror story in AfterShock's A Walk Through Hell #1, while magic and Earth threaten to collide in Dark Horse Comics' Ether: The Copper Golums from the mind of Matt Kindt. The buzzworthy Infidel miniseries from Image reaches the midway point in issue #3, while IDW presents a new comic tale of mayhem spinning out of the cult favorite Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Bloodsuckers #1.

Along with everything we've mentioned here, this week also brings 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 let us know what you plan on getting this week in the comments. Happy reading!
