Wednesday is here again, which means a new week for new comics (FRIENDO, BLACK BADGE & GIDEON FALLS). 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.

It’s time to request a clean-up on aisle seven as Leo and Jerry’s attempt to rob a hypermarket goes stomach-churningly wrong. Luckily, a mysterious corporate benefactor is on hand to help them with a new mission and an offer they can’t refuse. Meanwhile, the owner of the hypermarket chain is in no mood to put up with Leo and Jerry’s antics. Enter ‘Zaj c the Cremator’, a brutal assassin with a predilection for bunny ear headbands. Leo and Jerry’s lives are about to become a whole lot more complicated.
