Comics Picks For 30.04.2014

In this new week, I continued my winning streak of comics reading from the past week. And I managed to read two graphic novels in the process, both of which I’d put off for a long time, but finally got around to. Reading all these many comics is quite a mission, I have to say, but a good two hours during the week can help quite a bit. Now if only I could get some more hours in the day to make sure that I was able to read even more!

Not a lot of new comics series this week, although I liked titles like Dream Police and Rai while others like Battlestar Galactica: Six and Star Wars: Rebel Heist proved to be interesting but flawed. And I continued on with several more series, catching up to American Vampire: Second Cycle and a bit with Conan the Barbarian in particular. And this week was also Free Comic Book Day and I picked up a few titles digitally. Haven’t gotten through all of them, but I remain hopeful as ever.

Anyway, here’s another edition of “Comics Picks For…”. Full reading list, as always, is available here and all my comics reviews are available here.
