We’ve had a number of interesting books come across in the first ten days of the ComiXology free summer reading program and we’re definitely recommending to check pretty much all of them out because, well, free reads. one we’re going to recommend even more is today’s book, which is the first issue of Letter 44 from Oni Press. The series, which has six issues out to date, comes from Charles Soule and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque and is being developed into a TV series for the Syfy channel. Check out that bit of news here as to what’s involved with the pilot.
