I love days when Major Spoilers has sneak peeks of upcoming issues.  It gives me a chance to get pumped up over issues that will be arriving in my mail sometime in the next seven days.  This week Image Comics delivers up a heaping helping of Charlatan Ball #4, Hawaiian Dick #5, Hyperkinetic #3, PVP #41, and The Roberts #2.
