Start Here: Five New Comics For May 16th
May 14, 2018
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 16, 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.”
Infinity Countdown: Daredevil
An Infinity Gem has dropped into Hell’s Kitchen and Daredevil is on the hunt to make sure it doesn’t get into the wrong hands. The man without fear has sworn to protect his home turf from all threats, but The Mind Stone might be too much for even the guardian devil.
How does street-level heroics size-up against one of the galaxy's most powerful artifacts? Find out in Infinity Countdown: Daredevil (MAR180810).
