It’s once again the time for New Comic Book day! This week seems to be a bit more exciting than a few of the previous weeks. We know the strong start of 2018 couldn’t last into all weeks and months, but it sure has been fun so far.

Welcome once again to Poyo’s picks of the week. I also go as far as to tell people to avoid some book or books as well. I’m cool like that and likely hated by writers or artists who worked hard for someone like me to tell others to not buy their junk.

Life gets in the way of all the things I’d rather be doing. I’m just now getting around to my picks less than 2 hours when we publish them usually. So it’s going to be short and sweet this week as I don’t even have an Indie Pick but rather two small publisher picks instead.

This year sure has been exciting so far for selling comics and who would have thought the biggest books are being pumped out by Marvel.
