This Week’s Comics – August 21

It’s New Comic Book Day!

New Comic Book Day is always something to look forward to! Grab something to read and try and avoid the August heat!

The combination of comic books and legendary wrestling manager Jim Cornette isn’t something I ever thought I’d see. But he has a new release from IDW this week, promising a “true story” anthology with tales of wrestlers keeping “kayfabe” from Ric Flair, Junkyard Dog, Shawn Michaels and others. It seems too good to pass up.

New issues of BATMAN, SUPERMAN YEAR ONE and SUPERMAN’S PAL, JIMMY OLSEN – among others – should make this a really great week.

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, but if you want to find your local comic shop, click here.
