The Week in Comics #8

This was a small week for me, though I augmented it with a couple issues I picked up on sale. Next week looks to be a big one, so keeping an eye on the budget was a necessity. Still, there were good comics to be read...
Secret Six #31 - It appears I'm becoming a regular reader of this book, as this is the third issue in a row I've picked up (and the first that doesn't cross over with another title). The issue starts out on a humorous note with an ad for the team that includes King Shark's contributions being described as "biting and chewing" and a complaint about the name of the group that actually has eight members. From there things get more serious and a lot more creepy. Apparently the group got a "Get Out of Hell Free"card at some point and more than one member wants to use it.

Superboy #4 - This has been in my file for a few weeks and I used the quiet we…
