This Week in Comics: Thursday 9/9/2010


This week in comics is a weekly column done by resident comic expert and nerd bastards contributor, Empress Sith (A.K.A. Megan G.) . Empress works at Collectibles Unlimited in Concord N.H. and knows more about comics than anyone should. She has boobs and reads comics. What more do you need to know? Empress Sith is here to tell you what’s out and what’s going on this week in comics. Enjoy. ~ Management

Hey fellow bastards!,

As you may have noticed comics are a day late this week. Don’t get made at me. Blame the Labor day holiday.

Before we get onto to today’s comic list I’d liked to point out that one of my readers noticed I mixed up two Kevin Smith Batman mini-series last week. While both terrible, I meant to vent most of my rage onto WIDENING GYRE. Thanks for the correction!

Onto this week’s comics. New Releases
