  1. So, I’ve been reading a lot of these press releases about Secret Wars and I have to say, I have no clue what’s going on and honestly it’s all looking a bit too daunting to touch, not only story-wise but financially.

  2. I’m having to decide which issues I really want because I can’t go buying all of them. I’d like the Maestro one but I noticed the art is by Greg Land. Then, ofcourse, there’s DC’s event as well.
