Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (WASTED SPACE, HONOR AND CURSE, & WYRD). 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. So here are 5 titles to consider picking up this week.

Genshi’s future was promising, until his past came back to torment him in the form of an evil mountain spirit known as a Tengu.
