Happy New Comics Wednesday 12/17 Sandman Overture & Multiverstity Thunderworld edition!

 LOTS of BIG titles today, the past three weeks have been on the smaller side of shipments, but today, we've got so many high profile titles that I am going to be too busy just reading them to talk about them just yet! I have read Sandman Overture #4 and Multiversity Thunderworld, and they are every bit as fantastic as you could hope for!

Happy New Comics Wednesday - Dec. 10th Afterlife With Archie #7 (!!), Bitch Planet, Sex Criminals edition!!

 AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE - how we've missed you!! Please don't take so long for your next issue, but thank you Roberto & Francesco for another FANTASTIC issue!! This week's Walking Dead is a really big moving the story forward issue too! Big week for Jim Lee art lovers - two collected editions, Divine Right and Superman Unchained!
 Frank Cho draws this week's Guardians of the Galaxy annual! The first issue (#7) of the last arc of Axis is out and these three issues are drawn by Adam Kubert!
I have 18 slots on my spotlight up at the front counter here at Alternate Reality Comics, how is it possible that the third chapter of Spider-Verse in this week's Amazing Spider-Man doesn't get a slot!? Probably because this big fun crazy story sells itself, but having just finished reading said comic, it continues the craziness this storyline has brought since it started!
