Wednesday Comics!

Ahoy-hoy fellow fans!

This week on my reading list mainly consists titles from the big two. With the release of more Future's End titles and big issues from the X-Men alumni, it feels like 1990s all over again. Most of my recommendations are stuff that i'm continually reading or new number one's that catch my eye either based off the writer or artists!
Check out my suggestions below and let me know which ones you're reading this week. Also if you're continuing on with Batman Eternal and the main title Future's End, how is that? I left the aforementioned out this week but i'm sure ill pick them up next.
