Portal Bound #3-4

A few months ago I mentioned that one of my more recent comic discoveries is Aspen Comics. (Which is fairly embarrassing, since we often review them here at Geek-o-Rama.)

The comic has existed for nearly two decades in a number of different formats. It began as a web comic and it’s currently an ongoing series on ComiXology, with various annuals and crossovers tied into it...
