Hello everyone! I apologize once again for my voice. It's getting better, but it's going to take time (and a lot of tea). It's a good thing this week is filled with some pretty awesome new series starting, so I can relax on the couch and read comics and drink my tea (fact: comics are good for colds).
This week... The third annual BOOMBOX MIX TAPE is here! It features a bunch of short stories from the Boom Studios universe and the theme of this years mix tape is... music! So whether it's going to a show or being in a band, read about some of your favorite character's musical adventures.
There is also a special Wonder Woman '77 comic arriving this week where she teams up with the Bionic Woman! Diana Prince.. meet Jaime Sommers!
