Star Wars #3 – THE GREATEST SPACE ADVENTURE OF ALL TIME CONTINUES! Feels like the movie!!    Duffy Pick!
Ant-Man #3Alex Pick!  I had no expectation for this book to be any good, but it is rapidly becoming one of my favorites. Ant-man is a consistently laugh out loud funny character study of Scott Lang which occasionally touches on heart warming. If you skipped this book because it seemed like a half hearted movie tie in you should really reconsider.
Spider-Gwen #2 – Did you catch Spider-Gwen’s introduction in Edge of Spider-Verse #2?  No?  Ask us to hold one for you!  Ariel & Amy Pick!

 Teen Dog #7, Boom – Teen Dog is part TMNT, part High Fidelity. This is a book about a soul searching rebellious teenage dog with a backwards hat and sunglasses who can do a kick flip over the moon while eating a slice of pizza. Truly the zeitgeist of the 90s.  Alex’ Pick!
