It is the last Wednesday of the year, Christmas has come and gone, so hopefully you saved some extra cash for this weeks new released comics. If you are like me, you may still have a stack of comics that haven’t been read from last week. Regardless, here is a list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop.
