Hello everyone! Lots of cool stuff this week for all types, including a Hellboy Winter Special for moi and big Batman titles as well. I managed to catch up on some more recent debut issues that I missed. I really enjoyed Outer Darkness (2nd issue this week) and Edgar Allen Poe’s Snifter of Terror (had me laughing out loud).
