To look at page samples from issue seven go here.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another review. This week, I took a closer look at my review pile and it’s down to less than a dozen mini-comics. What this means is that I’ll be integrating mini-comics from SPX and other minis that have been pushed to the side to make way for reviews. Fun times are coming…
