We’ve got a big week in indie comics coming our way! While I say that often, this week is truly deserving of the praise. Not only are we getting more Energon Universe goodness from Skybound this week, but there are also plenty of thrilling finales and debuts from BOOM! Studios and Dark Horse Comics. It’s another week with the good problem of having too many great comics to read. But to help narrow things down, I’ve picked out ten of the best titles I think will be worth your time diving into. So without further ado, let’s get to the list!
