This Week’s Comics – April 18

Today, we celebrate the release of a comic book that’s been 80 years in the making. Today sees the release of Action Comics 1,000, celebrating the legacy of comicdom’s greatest hero – SUPERMAN! And there are a lot of other great books out this week, too, making this New Comic Book Day one to remember!

Just like last week, I’m still working my way through last week’s books, but I’ll happily add more to my pile.

For a complete list of this week’s releases, remember to check out the Previews website.

I’m purchasing all my books digitally through Comixology (except for Action Comics 1,000 – I’ll be stopping into a comic shop for a physical copy or 10), but if you want to find your local comic shop, click here.

Let’s take a look at what I’m buying:
