Abbott Boom studios

Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (Abbott, Dissonance, & Zodiac Starforce: Cries of the Fire Prince). 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.
