    Don’t forget The Doctor
    Doctor Who – The Fogotten #1 (which is their 10 Doctors story), is coming out this week from IDW as well.

    Power Pack
    I wish these Power Pack miniseries were coming out in trades, but it looks like all they have are the "digest" format, which I assume are the same format as the Archies (and what they re-released the original few issues of Transformers as during that comic’s peak). Yeah, it’s aimed at kids, but from what I’ve seen it’s a lot of fun. Fun superhero comics are good.

    (Plus, being out of continuity they get to do things like having the Venom symbiote take over 10-year-old Katie. Hilarity and cuteness ensues.)

      I have a number of the Marvel digests. The paper quality is FAR superior to the Archie digests, as is the binding. I’m quite pleased with them, actually.

        So they’re sort of like tiny little trades? Cool. I might actually look into them, then.
