It’s another great week of comic books as we get several brand-new titles but not from Marvel or DC Comics but from several independent publishers that have given us great comics in the past.

This week we do could see the return of Jupiter’s Legacy by Mark Miller and Frank Quitely. This is another fantastic series by this creative duo and we can’t wait to see the continuation of this story.
