It was new comic book day yesterday. What’d you all get? What’d you like? What’d you dislike? Sound off in the comments below.

While you think about that, here’s some comic news and reviews from around the web in around the web.

iO9 – All the Hints and Details Hidden in Avengers: Infinity War’s Cosmically Gigantic Trailer – For those that like these sort of things.

CBR – Sana Amanat Defends Marvel’s New Editor-in-Chief, C.B. Cebulski – In such a horrible way.

Newsarama – WGN Passes On Scalped Television Series – Hopefully someone else picks this up (assuming the pilot is good).
