08/07/2013: What’s New on ComicSpectrum


Another week another pile of comics!  Went through Previews and assembled my August order, my total # of comics is up, I need to start trimming again, which means more critical reading.  I still need to get through my pile of Marvel unread comics so I can complete my survey of Marvel vs. DC, I hope to make some progress this upcoming week, as well as finishing my blogging on SDCC 2013 Sat/Sun.
New site content this week includes an added video about Bob’s collection to the Homepage; Added page about framing Original Art, including cutting your own mattes; Added cool YouTube short movies to main TV/Movies/Games page
