Our newest staff writer lets you pick your poison!
I hope to do this weekly from now on.
I will also maybe try to get it up on Friday.
Poll will close at midnight est Sunday Night/Monday Morning.
Here’s the deal… my various contacts and other stuff means that I have access to some books before they hit the stands, so every week I will offer up a set of comics that have not already been claimed by the rest of the staff or being used in the various club threads.
Anyhow, I will read the book and put up a review for your choice on Monday night. That way there is at least one book you can know a little more about before you get to the store.
This week’s books are as follows…
