    Question of the Week
    What comics are on your summer reading list?

    I recently came upon a TPB “irredeemable” from BOOM! and wow!
    I felt like I did back in the 70′s when I first got into comics.
    I flipped the pages back and forth, I read it twice back to back, I wanted to get more.
    I was like a kid again trying to get the most out of the pages as I could.

    I planned to get the other TPB’s to reach to the current monthly issues.

    Make Mine BOOM! ???
