START HERE: Five New Comics For May 30th

Never get left behind again, thanks to START HERE!

Admittedly, to be a comic book reader, you have to be a special breed. That is, usually, you have to be willing to go backward and forward in continuity – play catch up as best you can or get left behind by the ever-expanding funny book ecosystem.

Except, that’s not entirely true.

Yes, there are a lot of comics out there, but there are plenty of jumping on points because of that fact. Here are 5 titles hitting stores on May 30, 2018. Each is a new series or the beginning of entirely new story arcs. Simply head to your comic shop and tell your store clerk, “Hey, I’d like to START HERE, please.”

 

X-Men Red Annual #1

With X-Men Red Annual #1 (MAR180907) get caught up on some of the recent events of the always evolving X-Men franchise.

Jean Grey has a lot of catching up to do. You may have heard but she's been dead for a while. Now, the recently resurrected Jean is bringing you along for a refresher course at Xavier's school. 

Oh. wait. I guess it's called the "Jean Greys School for Higher Learning" now, huh?

 

Man of Steel #1

Check out Man of Steel #1 (APR180145), a six-issue weekly mini-series by former Marvel writer and all-around fan-favorite Brian Michael Bendis! Featuring artwork by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado, the first issue teases a threat that dates back to Superman’s origin. Does that mean something about Krypton, something about Smallville…how far back are we talking about, Bendis?!

Bonus: The covers to all six-issues creates a montage image by Reis and Prado.
