Mike's Picks:

 Astonishing Ant-Men #5  This book has been humorous in all the right ways! I love how Scott (who is a not so bad but definitely not so great hero) is trying to be a mentor to the new Giant-man. Which he so unwisely given the suit away for feeling sympathy. Ant-man is filled with humor but definitely maintains a since of heaviness in Scott's life.

 Plutona #4  I think anyone who has read comic books has wanted superpowers. Of course, in our reality there are no superheroes with powers and abilities. But, what if we did live in a world where superheroes were common, and there's always the possibility of super powers? What if it was your dream to get superpowers and you randomly came across the corpse of a fallen hero with powers? What would you do to make your dreams a reality?

 Imposter #1  This was a book I'm just testing the waters with in the store. I really enjoyed it and I think its for anyone who enjoys books like Lobster Johnson, The Spirit, Doctor Strange, and The Shadow. The idea is pretty cool too. What if every hero we know is just the many personas of one man trying to protect his world and prevent the inevitable threats that are out there. We still have a few copies left! Tell me what you think and we will continue to carry more issues!!
