Comic Book Wednesday: Jan. 28th Picks

Happy Comic Book Wednesday,

I can't believe it, yesterday evening I went to the store to get Justice League: Throne of Atlantis and it was sold out. I'm going to check a few stores today to see if they have any still on the shelves. Hopefully, that's a good sign that the movie will be good.

My list for today includes two new books: Effigy and The Powerpuff Girls: Super Smash-up (miniseries).
