This week’s haul of comics entertainment of course continues the universe-changing events of stories such as Marvel Comics’ INFINITY – with Captain Marvel #15 and Thanos Rising #5 as tie-ins – and the conclusion of DC Comics’ Trinity War in Justice League #23. As these stories continue to develop and shock and amaze, here are a couple other recommendations that can get you your adventure/excitement/drama fix.

Ultimate Spider-Man #26 continues the adventures of Miles Morales as he faces corporate corruption, responsibility and romantic relationships.

If you like vampires and if you like America, then you’ll love American Vampire Anthology #1, featuring the work of amazing comic creators including the series’ creators, Scott Snyder and Rafael Albuquerque, as well as Becky Cloonan (Batman), Gabriel Ba and Fabio Moon (Daytripper), Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Animal Man), Greg Rucka (The Punisher, Batwoman), Gail Simone (Batgirl, Red Sonja)

After a brief hiatus, the Eisner Award-winning, ridiculously successful, breakaway hit series Saga returns on Wednesday. If you need to catch up with the story, fear not! JPM Comics has just restocked the first two volumes of the series. If you’re all caught up and have been chomping at the bit the last couple months, here’s a preview of Saga #13.

In Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #2, it’s time to double down on this team-up. The Scarlet Spider appears, but will he have a chance to help before Doc Ock’s finds a way to take revenge against the man who killed him? Awkward. Here’s the preview.

If I have to tell you one more time to read Batman and all the Justice League books, I may just have to set myself on fire to get my point across. Here is a preview for Batman #23 and Justice League of America #7. They are good, so enjoy them!

Also, you’ve waited for 10 issues and now  Thor vs. God Butcher is happening, so…there’s that.

Greetings, True Believers! It’s your friendly, neighborhood JPM Comics again with this week’s list and previews of coming attractions.

This week in Action Comics #23, Superman fights what looks like Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy (not really, but kinda). See the whole altercation for yourself on Wednesday, but here’s the preview till then.

You may think you know how Tony Stark became Iron Man because you saw a film about it once, but Marvel NOW has been telling The Secret Origin of Tony Stark and this week Tony is in space fighting for his life. Check it out here.

Now it’s the Lightning Round. This is where we quickly list off (and preview) a few “indie” comics that you should be reading if you’re not already. And if you’re already reading them, feel free to lord it over anyone who isn’t. These books are great and you’re missing out if you don’t read them:

The Manhattan Projects #13

Satellite Sam #2

Ten Grand #4

Also on that note, check out Sidekick #1 from J. Michael Straczynski (Amazing Spider-Man, Ten Grand, Rising Stars) and artist Tom Mandrake (Firestorm, The Spectre, and Martian Manhunter). Preview it here.
