Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (REAVER, CARE BEARS, & SECOND COMING). If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week.
