PrintE-mail Written by Melissa Grey

Welcome to this week’s edition of Noteworthy New Comics (now expanded to ten great issues!), where I share my top picks for today’s new releases for the sake of the greater good (and also maybe your wallet). This week is all about fierce female leads, the fine line between heroes and villains, and of course, the zombie apocalypse.
