Antique & Vintage Book Marks

This Week in Geek 4/2
If you’re headed to the comic shop, bring your wallet because this new comics day is a whopper. Everything came out this week and I mean everything! The end of the “Action Comics” Superman Legion tie-in hit today, along with new issues of both “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel”.
