rocko's modern life BOOM!

Wednesday is almost here again, which means a new week for new comics. 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.

faith's winter wonderland


Valiant Entertainment – Marguerite Sauvage, Francis Portela, M.J. Kim

As cheer fills the air, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert is about to take a trip down the rabbit hole…and into a mind-bending winter wonderland where every day is something special! But hiding behind the tinsel, all is not what it seems… White rabbit meets red-nosed reindeer as Faith squares off against a realm of make-believe and merriment for a whimsical flight of superhero fancy!
