Me me!

I tried to resist. Honestly, I did. All due credit to Dorian for starting this. And I bet he didn’t even mean to.

So, this week’s comics, which were available today and not tomorrow like I previously thought. Infinite Crisis #4 I want a shock. A surprise. I know, I’m probably looking in the wrong place.
