Re: What comics did you buy today?

Picked up the latest issue of comic scene I thought I would give it one last try, that was the last try was very disappointed it’s no comic world or any of the other uk based Comic related magazines. I really tried to like it but at £5.99 for only a few pages of interest to me sorry no more.

Plus on Saturday picked up the comic scene summer special, not t...
