New comic book releases 5/8/13

New comic book releases for 5/8/13. This week’s list is packed full of comic goodness. Time to find your local comic shop and start stacking those titles high. Be sure to check out some of the great work from some of the smaller publishers, you are sure to discover some hidden gems. For example, over at Dynamite Entertainment, the popular TV show Grimm makes the leap to comics with Grimm #1 (creative team: Marc Gaffen, Kyle McVey, Jose Malaga). Wonder what this series is about? Check out the associated video for a peek at the series “trailer” for the 411. Marvel Comics brings the thunder with Thor God Of Thunder #8 (creative team: Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic) and promises to be explosive! Valiant Entertainment offers up some humor with action in the pages of Archer & Armstrong #0 (creative team: Fred Van Lente, Clayton Henry). DC Comics looks like they’ve got a family fued brewing in the pages of Deathstroke #20, one that is not to be missed. Looking for a spin on a classic, Big Dog Ink brings to the table a tale set in the land of OZ with Legend of Oz: Scarecrow #1 (Patrick Shand, Carlos Reno). Check out the beautiful cover art in the slide show for what looks to be a great fantasy piece. If magic and prohibition Chicago are more your speed, head on over to the shelf that has Image Comics Chin Music #1 (Steve Niles, Tony Harris) on it. Finally, IDW Publishing delivers some great Satruday matinee serials style fun with Dave StevensThe Rocketeer in the pages of Rocketeer Adventues Treasury Ed (Mark Waid, John Cassaday, Darwyn Cooke) and Rocketeer Hollywood Horror #4 (Roger Langridge, Jason Bone, Walter Simonson) So until next week, keep smiling and happy reading!
