We've been having some talk of spoilers a lot lately, so I figured it's a good idea to have a section for it.
-If you must post a spoilery panel or a page from a comic (recent or otherwise), please link to them with a proper spoiler warning.
-Please at least allow one week before posting unmarked spoilers.
-Announcements/Solicitations are not spoiler worthy, no need to tag

Hey Messi/Freeza, can we start putting in a little list of some notable collected editions for the month? I can put it together for you each month.


Jack Kirby month is a good month.

I've been reading the new Thunderbolts, not great. That stupid mouth mask looks bad on Bucky, he needs the domino mask back and to go back to spy/street-level stuff. Dunno if Marvel have any plans for Winter Soldier for Legacy though.


Thanks for the new OT! Happy August!
This month is fucking horrid in terms of weather here. Good excuse to stay out of the heat and read some comics!

Will this be the month that Aizo finds a better job? Tune in next month. Last month was good. So glad that I moved to a new neighborhood. Hoping for even more improvements this month.
I didn't know the Jem comic was still going. I need to see if I can check some out at the library because I'm poor and have no money.

DC has the entire Hanna Barbera lineup.

Well, he's a Hanna-Barbera character, and Hanna-Barbera is owned by WB, who owns DC. So if WB doesn't mind, DC can do whatever they want with the character.

Space Ghost is part of Hanna Barbera production which is now part of Warner Brothers, which also has DC Comics.

Oh damn, when did this happen? Also has he or the PowerPuff girls ever crossed with the likes of Superman?
