Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (THUMBS, IGNITED & DCEASED). 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.
THUMBS #1 – $3.99

The Social Network meets Blade Runner in this big event book from the team that brought you the hit series THE FEW!
MEET THE SKRULLS #5 – $3.99
Marvel Comics – Robbie Thompson, Niko Henrichon, Laurent Grossat, Travis Lanham, Marcos Martin

It’s the first day back at Phoenix Academy High, but this year there’s no back to school excitement in the air as returning students and faculty are haunted by memories of last year’s horrific attack.
