This is a new column that we thought we would start doing each week, picking some books that we think look and sound interesting. Both Andrew and I are going to make some selections that we hope you try out and enjoy. Now this will probably lead to some name calling or fist fights at some point but this is not about which company is better or my general dislike for all things Marvel. No, we want to suggest some titles you may not be reading today but you might like if you did.
By the way, there is no order to this list at all so deal with it.
New Books Released: 05/09/12
G.I.JOE (Vol 2) #13 $3.99 (IDW Publishing) Taking a more modern spin with a few real world influences, this book continues to be one of the best ensemble cast books on the shelves today. (Andrew)
