Trade-Waiting: May 2016

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Each month, we highlight some of the trades (issues collected into paperback or hardcover) that have released into comics shops to make your trade-waiting less stressful. If you’re taking this list into your library or bookstore, rather than a comics shop, keep in mind that the release dates may be a few weeks later because of distribution. This list is not meant to be comprehensive.
