This episode I do a quick rundown of everything out this week from BOOM! Studios, Archaia, BOOM! Box, and KaBOOM! I hope everyone manages to pick up a few of these greats books this week. I briefly go over some of the new series starting in January while looking over the new Previews catalog solicitations, and a real quick look at next week’s upcoming WWE: THEN. NOW. FOREVER #1 one-shot from BOOM! Studios and WWE. I will definitely be going more in depth on this issue in the next episode.
