Ultimate Spider-Man debuts a new Gwen Stacy, while Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles drop the final issue of its latest run in the best new comics for April 24, 2024. 

As April winds down, we’re getting a better idea of how the summer is going to look for Marvel and DC. Absolute Power and Blood Hunt are poised to be huge events that shake the universes to their core. 

Before we can get into that, there’s a lot of set-ups to do. X-Men titles continue their march toward the end of Krakoa with the reveal of a traitor in their midst. Meanwhile, Spider-Man has to do battle with his clone, and Daredevil celebrates six decades of battling evil. 

April 24, 2024: Best new comics & where to buy them


These are the best new comics for the week of April 24th, 2024. You can find your local comic shop at Comic Shop Locator or purchase digital copies via the storefronts linked below. 

Ultimate Spider-Man #4

By Jonathan Hickman, David Messina, Matt Wilson, Cory Petit, and Marco Checchetto

Ultimate Spider-Man #4 cover artWhat it’s about: WHO IS THE GREEN GOBLIN? Peter Parker’s secret life starts fraying the edges of his personal life! J. Jonah Jameson and Ben Parker’s pursuit of truth — or, at least, the news — stirs unrest with the world at large… And now that Spider-Man may not have to operate alone, the real work of rebuilding this corrupt world can begin!
What we think: Yeah, yeah, the Green Goblin mystery is unraveling, and we’re learning more about how Jonah and Ben are going to continue as newsmen. Who cares? This issue introduces the new Ultimate Comics take on Gwen Stacy. Fans of the original Ultimate Spider-Man will remember that Gwen was a major player in that story, so seeing how she factors into this version will be exciting. 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #150

By Sophie Campbell, Dan Duncan, Vincenzo Federici, Fero Peniche, Ronda Pattison, and Shawn Lee

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #150 cover artWhat it’s about: Everything has been building to this double-size celebration! And here at the end, we’ll return to the start…Donatello has been searching for his future self to understand how he can fight Armaggon. Now, knowing where he is (or should we say “when he is”?) Donatello is racing to his past to convene with his future. Can he get there and learn what he needs to before Armaggon eats the TMNT out of the timeline?This epic finale from writer Sophie Campbell and a roster of all-star artists pays off on years of IDW storytelling, reckoning with the history of the Turtles while also setting the stage for the next mutation of must-read TMNT comics!
What we think: IDW’s legendary Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles run draws to a close with this issue, and it’s sure to be a celebration for the ages. The line relaunches soon with a new #1, which is the perfect opportunity for new readers to jump on, but fans of the TMNT or this run will definitely want to show up for a rollicking finale. 

Daredevil #8

By Saladin Ahmed, Ty Templeton, Ann Noccenti, D. G. Chichester, Elsa Sjunneson, Erica Schultz, Aaron Kuder, Clayton Cowles, and John Romita Jr. 

Daredevil #8 cover artWhat it’s about: SPECIAL OVERSIZED ISSUE MARKING 60 YEARS OF DAREDEVIL! A dragnet is closing around Matt Murdock, A.K.A. DAREDEVIL! Police on both sides of the law are hunting him, something vicious with a deep connection to Matt’s very soul is hunting his friends and, in the midst of that chaos, an old foe with the blood of Matt’s closest allies on his hands returns…
What we think: If you’re surprised that this year is Daredevil’s 60th anniversary…hey, me too. Marvel has been all-in on the much larger, more impactful 50th anniversary of Wolverine, but ol’ Hornhead is an institution in his own right. With a Daredevil/Bullseye showdown on the horizon, this could be a bold return to form for a run that has been very focused on Matt’s religious background and how his faith conflicts with his superheroics. 

Rise of the Powers of X #4

By Kieron Gillen, R. B. Silva, David Curiel, Clayton Cowles

Rise of the Powers of X #4What it’s about: WHO IS TRAITOR X? In the aftermath of the greatest betrayal in X-Men history, the Quiet Council in exile must act. They have a plan. Can anyone, or anything, survive the experience? As the Krakoan Age barrels toward its conclusion, the two series that are one converge on an act that will live in infamy!
What we think: The ongoing betrayal of Charles Xavier is rocking the X-Men titles to the core. We saw how far Xavier was willing to go last week, which seems to confirm why the stalwart leader of the mutant race won’t be appearing in any of the upcoming From The Ashes relaunch titles. Is Xavier’s betrayal for real, or is it part of a larger gambit? With only a few issues left, readers are sure to find out soon. 

Wolverine #48

By Victor LaValle, Benjamin Percy, Cory Smith, Alex Sinclair, Cory Petit, Leinil Francis Yu

Wolverine #48 cover artWhat it’s about: CREED VS. CREED! It’s a family affair as GRAYDON CREED, the maligned son of VICTOR CREED, A.K.A. SABRETOOTH, brings the fight to his father. The winner gets WOLVERINE — or… what’s left of him…!
What we think: Three episodes to go in the massive Sabretooth War, and the scoreboard may as well be breaking even. With Sabretooth trapped and Wolverine having lost his powers, it’s anyone’s game at this point. Things may slow down a step this week to set up the finale, but we already know things are about to really pop off with the new Adamantium armor before the inevitable final showdown. 

The Amazing Spider-Man #48

By Zeb Wells Todd Nauck, Sonia Oback, Joe Caramagna, John Romita Jr. 

The Amazing Spider-Man #48 cover artWhat it’s about: Peter Parker vs. Ben Reilly! Spider-Man finally gets a rematch! Meanwhile, what is going on with Norman Osborn?! Only two issues left until AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #50!
What we think: We still love Ben Reilly, and I remain hopeful that this arc will finally give the tortured clone of Peter Parker some degree of peace. There’s got to be a fistfight before that can happen, though, and it sounds like we’re getting a true knockdown, drag-out fight between Ben and Peter in this episode.
