New Releases for the week of 5-13-2015

Secret Wars and Convergence continue this week at CNJComics!

Here’s the featured new comic releases coming out Wednesday, May 13th 2015.

Secret Wars

We sold a lot of Secret Wars #1’s last week, and it turned out to be a really good book too. A chaotic end of the world story with a very creepy ending that made you empathize with Reed Richards. Issue #2 is this week and we get our first real peak at our new Marvel for the next few months, Battleworld.

Secret Wars 2The new Marvel Universe will be composed of bits and pieces of different timelines. (sound familiar?) The only difference is DC gave us a good idea of what was going on and Marvel has us flying by the seat of our pants. If you didn’t get a Battleboard map last week be sure to ask for one this week. They were so cool we ordered more.

Also this week will be a couple minor tie ins to Secret Wars Last Days, Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #8 and Magneto #18. Last days titles just show what characters in those books did with their last few hours of existence.

Captain America MightyBe sure to take a look at the attached Secret Wars checklist on the side of this email for more info!


We didn’t get to focus on it too much last week, but the second round of Convergence #2’s is coming out, and each one has an eight page preview of one of the new DC Divergence titles that will be out in June. These stories are original and will not be contained in the June issues! The eight pages are extra content, and will be in addition to the normal page count.

The Rest

We have one standout indie this week, Injection from Image Comics and Warren Ellis (Trees).

Injection 1“Once upon a time, there were five crazy people, and they poisoned the 21st Century. Now they have to deal with the corrosion to try and save us all from a world becoming too weird to support human life.”

Just for fun, we’ve got a pretty fun reprint book, Night Nurse #1 Special.

Night NurseThis is the 1970’s stuff that Rosario Dawson’s character was based on in the new Dardevil Netflix Show. #1-#4 of the classic series, and even a reprint of Daredevil #80, where Brian Bendis reintroduced her to Daredevil fans. While not quite the image portrayed on the show, you can see her foundation laid out here for $7.99.

That’s it for this week. Keep your eyes peeled for our formal Free Comic Book Day thank you email later this week!
