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.
