We decided to start a new “feature” here at ComicReaders– comics and gaming related news bites for each Wednesday to coincide with the arrival of new comics. Of course, I only thought of this idea today, which is why the first installment is one day late. “Thursday News Bites” just didn’t make sense to me.
