A day late, but it’s for a good cause, I assure you.  As you all know, every week I go to the comic store to try and let you guys know what comics are good(and bad, for that matter) before you buy.  And as you know, I pick up my comics at Comics and Paperbacks Plus in Palmyra, PA.  You can find them on Facebook here or here, or you can stop in if you find yourself in Central Pennsylvania. You can also follow me on Twitter, just to see what I think of my books as I read them!  Here’s what I got:

Amazing Spider-Man #667
War of the Green Lanterns: Aftermath #2
Spider-Island: Cloak and Dagger #1
The Red Wing #2
Fear Itself #5
B.P.R.D.: Hell On Earth: Monsters #2
Hellboy: The Fury #3
Baltimore: The Curse Bells #1
Red Robin #26

What’s this?  Two single issue review columns in one week?  Yes.  Hell yes!  Starting this week, and continuing until something else comes up, single issues will be reviewed the day after they come out!  This is in an effort to give you either a warning about bad comics(God forbid), or let you know about awesome comics.  So, without anything further, let’s begin!  As always, I pick up my comics at Comics and Paperbacks Plus in Palmyra, PA.  You can find them on Facebook here or here, or you can stop in if you find yourself in Central Pennsylvania. You can also follow me on Twitter, just to see what I think of my books as I read them!  Here’s what I got:

Alpha Flight #2
Amazing Spider-Man #665
B.P.R.D.: Hell on Earth: Monsters #1
