Comic Book Checklist: July 31st, 2013

Adventures of Superman

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: Angela pays a visit to the Guardians of the Galaxy, the first storyarc of Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel's X-Men comes to an action-packed conclusion, and Adventures of Superman provides a solid jumping-on point for "Man of Steel" fans.
