10 Comic Books Worth Checking Out This Week (04/17/2013)

Hello Comic Book Fandom:

Each week Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, and others release comic books every Wednesday and sometimes fantastic comic books get lost in the shuffle. This list will highlight ten comic books that are worth checking out for this week.

Some comic books might be a great jumping on point, others are one-and-done stories, or some are just worth the price of admission.

This week, John Layman writes about seamen in “Chew” #33, Corey Taylor‘s (singer from Slipknot) new comic book from Dark Horse Comics titled “House of Gold & Bones” #1 (related to Stone Sour’s newest album) hits shelves this week, Both “Justice League” and “Wonder Woman” #19 are most certainly WTF certified, Both “Daredevil” titles are well worth it this week, and a new “Star Wars” book? SIGN ME UP.

So, how about that list…
