Wednesday is here again, and its almost time for HALLOWEEN! You may be like me and still have a stack of unread comics from Easter, but how can anyone fault us for reading. Here is a special HALLOWEEN themed list of books I will be picking up at my local comic shop this week.

Like many readers I try to budget my purchases, which can become difficult when there are so many quality books being published each week. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.

Dark Ark Aftershock

DARK ARK #2 – $3.99

Aftershock Comics – Cullen Bunn, Juan Doe, Ryane Hill

As the floodwaters rise, Shrae’s ark full of fiendish beasts continues on its seemingly endless voyage. But below deck, the matriarch of the naga clan has been viciously slain, and the monstrous voyagers are quick to point clawed fingers to blame each other for the murder. As tensions rise among the monsters, Shrae’s very human family is at risk of becoming victims themselves.

I read comics. I write about comics. You read about me writing about comics. If you have comics you want me to read, write me, and I will read it. I might even write about it.
