Last week was a mess between the extreme weather delaying shipments and miscommunication at the distributor level so there are a few books that may have seemed like they were supposed to come out last week, but will in fact be on our shelves this week like Rocket Raccoon and Groot #1 and Obi-Wan and Anakin #1.
On the trade side we have some more Secret Wars odd and ends, a new Deadpool Omnibus (hey did you hear there’s a movie coming out?), and the second volume of the Star Wars Darth Vader series which has just been a pure joy to read. That’s coming from a very casual Star Wars fan!
See you at the bottom…
