Another weekend has rolled round and a time, we hope, to relax. And to help you switch off for a short while we present to you another ten to takeaway:

  1. For some reason previews of forthcoming comics for the week proved popular with previews for DC Comics’ Superman ’78 #1, Wonder Woman Black & Gold #3 and Superman: Son of Kal-El #2 all scoring with you the readers, to name just a few.

  5. Another regular column – Brendan M Allen’s Jumping On, hits the list again this week. Read up on all the new story arcs and new books that came out this past week here.
  6. Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? got a second printing this week. You can read my in depth review of this tome here and see why it’s sold out for yourselves. A great addition to any comic book lover’s library.
