Alright lots of sad news here in my city. Long time favorite comic shop closed down. Basically there are too many damn comic stores in this fucking city. At first we had three. Three great shops you could kinda go around to and find lots of different stuff. It even seemed like they helped each other out. Then in the last couple years FOUR more shops opened up in our tiny city. Not to mention the all the game shops which took business away from the comic shops and well, Quantum Frontier has closed. Big sadness.

So just a couple things I'll mention here today. Low is back! I'm a huge fan and super excited to see how things take off from here. It really left us with a big bang! Manifest Destiny is also back after a short break. It's still one of my favorite adventure & monster stories. I'm super excited to read the ending of The Kitchen. The series has been 100% entertaining from issue one.

Finally, looking forward to another awesome mini series from Boom Studios. This one is called The Fiction. Curt Pires (You may remember him from the awesome mini series with Jason Copland last year called POP) writes this four part mini. Here's the rundown from Previews World because I'm lazy : 

"Four childhood friends discover a box of strange books that, when read aloud, can transport them to the beautiful, imaginary worlds described within. But when one of them goes missing, the others vow never to reveal where they've been and what they've seen. Years later, when one of the remaining kids, now an adult, also mysteriously disappears, it's up to the last two of the group to dig up their dusty books to find him and finally figure out what happened to their friend all those years ago."
