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. The goal of this list is to highlight ten comic books that are worth checking out for this week.
This is the way the list works: I tend to add more books that ARE new reader friendly than those that AREN’T. But usually, it’s just a list of books I’m excited for, and you should be too. Also, if you’d like to take a look at the full Diamond shipping List, click here.
Seriously, the comic book industry is dumping all their good books this week. Want to see my wallet after tomorrow? Here you go:
So, how about that list?
