Picks of the Week – June 12, 2013
Before I get into this week’s picks, I just wanted to take a moment to ask everyone a quick favor.
Don’t be that guy.
What do I mean? This is what I mean.
I will admit, digital comics are convenient, especially for people who just want to read the comics and do not want to collect them. All that is fine and good.
Today when I was picking up my books at my local comic shop, I heard about this guy. He was a digital comic reader. His sole intention of visiting the local comic shop was to read through the new books this week to decide which he wanted to digitally download. He had no intention to buy anything. He just wanted to use the comic shop as a library to find out what was worth buying digitally.
DON’T BE THAT GUY!!!!
That said, now onto the picks of this week.
