Comic Book Checklist: April 24th, 2013

by Brett White

Wednesday is new comic book day, which also means it’s new potential-movie-source-material day. Here are all of the comics and collections out today starring the comic book characters from the movies and television shows of today, tomorrow and yesterday.

Of particular note this week: hop on board “Journey Into Mystery” with issue #651 as it starts a new storyline full of Asgardian hijinks; catch up on the X-Men/Avengers mash-up team with the first collection of “Uncanny Avengers”; and get pumped for “Man of Steel” with any of this week’s new Superman releases.
