for the resident Batman fan was Zorro#1 by Dynamite Entertainment as
his pick of the week. Problems ensue with Street Fighter characters
* 00:12:13- Sergio Aragones takes over The Spirit and the boys find it difficult not to compare to Cooke’s.

Hulk #2. Get your insurance as car wreaks may nearer than you think. And

block. Ultimate X-Men maybe it, in #91 see the X-Men get there asses
handed to them and the whole Ultimate universe joins in.
