This week's new comic releases

As avid comic book readers know, Wednesday is the best day of the week because that’s when the new books arrive in stores. Here are some of the comics scheduled to hit the shelves on August 31. Your local retailer will probably have these and others, so make sure to check with them for more details.

Two of the biggest releases today are both from DC. (DC, like CNN, is owned by parent company TimeWarner.) The final book in the "Flashpoint" story line comes out in "Flashpoint #5" and the first of the "The New 52" reboot with the release of "Justice League #1."

Today also marks DC's movement to day-in-date release of digital comics. "Justice League #1" will be available as a tradition paper comic for $3.99 a digital only version is also $3.99 and the new combo pack (both print and digital together) for $4.99.
