New comic book releases 5/14/14

New comic book releases 5/14/14.If you find yourself making it to the halfway mark for the week and in need of something to take you away for a few minutes, you’ve come to the right place. Here is this week’s new release list, with the cure for the midweek blues. Be sure to pick a few titles from the list then head down to your local comic shop to find your favorites. Don't know where to start? Stick around and we'll take a look at a few to give you a couple of ideas. First up, Marvel Comics rolls out a title that just recently saw the return of a fan favorite swashbuckling hero, we're talking about Nightcrawler #2 (Chris Claremont, Todd Nauck, Jamie McKelvie). So if you are looking for some high flying fun, consider putting this one on your list (and check out the associated video for a peek at the high flying hero!) Next up, take that spirit of swashbuckling and high adventure to the stars and you get this week's offering from Image Comics in the pages of Starlight #3 (Mark Millar, Goran Parlov). Running with a bit of the pulp feel that resonates in Image's offering, we'll go full blown and propose that you check out Dynamite Entertainment's final issue of The Shadow #25 (Chris Roberson, Giovanni Timpano, Alex Ross) in what promises to be chock full of throwback pulp action. If you like your comics grim and gritty, then Dark Horse has what you need in the pages of X #13 (Duane Swierczynski, Eric Nguyen, Aleksi Briclot). Still not sure it is your cup of tea? Then check out a few preview pages in the associated slide show for a peek at the trouble that is unfolding for the titles hero. Finally, DC Comics rounds things up with what is promising to be a super event in the pages of Superman Doomed #1 (Scott Lobdell & Various, Ken Lashley).
