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

The rise of the Tzalekuhl Empire disrupts the peace across the land of Mezo. When the conquest begins, a young girl named Kyma witnesses the death of her father, a tribal leader who refused to yield. As the solar eclipse nears, Kyma must unite the various tribes against an emperor determined to make them all kneel before his god or be sacrificed in his name. Mezo, a new fantasy epic set in a Mesoamerican-inspired world begins here!
