Is it just me or did the month of May go really, really fast? I guess it was just me and it was likely based on my having to knock out a few conventions straight in a row along with one of the closing Slayer tours. I am actually finishing up with Book Expo today and that Slayer show is on Monday. Coverage of the whole gamut will be online ASAP. Time surely flies when you’re having fun. So back to the agenda at hand which is the Marvel Comics first issues and special editions that are hitting the racks this month. There’s a lot of them to enjoy so you might want to work a few extra hours during the week. As usual the press copy from the House Of Ideas is below along with the images. I will close out with my own thoughts as expected.
