    I hope this isnt a 4 dollar+ book

    I love when good writers do small stories.

    But Marvel Comics Presents just went bye-bye a few months back or so and it was sort of the same thing.

    I’m not sure how DC’s Brave and the Bold can be solid every month but5 Marvel cant get ‘Presents’ past 12 issues.
