Top Comics To Buy October 21st

– by Michael Connally

Here is a list of the comics I am looking forward to this week.  At the top of my list is the epic conclusion of "Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens- Shattered Empire" #4.  With Star Wars frenzy at its highest with the latest trailer to come out I can only imagine how many people will be picking up this comic to try to get more info about the new universe.  Another notable on my list is "Invincible" #124 written by Robert Kirkman.  This series doesn't get the glamour that "The Walking Dead" does but I have to say that I like this series more than TWD.  Are there any comics you can't wait for this week?  Sound off in the comment section below
