New Comics Day 2/11/09
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under new releasesLinda Medley 10 Feb 2009 1:30 PM

Scheduled to arrive at your local comic shop this week: Castle Waiting Vol. II #14 by Linda Medley. As previously noted, Castle Waiting comics arrive in comic shops before we have the issues available here on the website, so hit your area brick-n-mortar if you want the issue now! Here's a first look at the cover:

Castle Waiting Vol. II No. 14 by Linda Medley

(A small meta note: from now on we'll only be posting New Comics Day updates on weeks when we actually have new titles shipping to comic shops. No update means nothing new from us that week.)
