Local Comic Shop Day 2019! 11/23 w/ Exclusive variants!

LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY

Local Comic Shop Day has been going on for 4 years & is an event not just to offer awesome, limited comics, but a chance to get people into the store so they can take advantage of a sale, ask questions about creating/maintaining a pull list, talking to other like-minded people, asking about cool books, etc. This will be an all-day event (11am-6pm), with a store-wide sale.

What issues will be available? Click on this link to see pics of all the books. If you are interested in Absolute Carnage, Walking Dead: The Alien, and Killadelphia, we have ordered larger numbers of these books, so let us know if you want a copy.

Halloween ComicFest 2019 is almost here! 10/26!

What’s going on for HCF 2019? How about free comics, free popcorn, huge store-wide sale and tons of FUN!

If you come dressed up you will have the option to get more free comics than the people that don’t dress up, so let’s see your costume! We’ll be randomly handing people gift certificates for cool, creative costumes.

We’ll be celebrating all day, 11am-6pm. We can only guarantee that we’ll have all available comics when the doors open, so if there’s a comic you want to check out, stop in as early as you can.

Undiscovered Country #1 New Wave Comics Store Variant by TOM WHALEN!

We are happy to introduce a Tom Whalen cover to Undiscovered Country #1 (written by Scott Snyder & Charles Soule)! Not only is it a cover, it’s a wrap-around cover!

Undiscovered Country #1 is scheduled to release on 11/6 and we will have a signing of the book that day from 5pm-7pm. Tom will be in store to sign copies of the book and you have the option to get them slabbed if you want (We are a witness, so anybody that wants to get the copy graded will also get a yellow label from CBCS).

Did you pre-order a copy of #1 (regular or Jock cover)? If so, you can get this cover for a discounted price of $15.99 (regular price is $17.99)! Whether you did or didn’t pre-order a copy, you can reserve as many copies as you would like.

If you didn’t get in on our Facebook offering, feel free to buy a copy off of our website (cheaper than eBay) and we can hold the book for you if you want to attend the event. Let us know so we can refund your shipping (put it in the notes section when you check out that you will be attending the event). OR if you cannot attend the event you can buy a copy, we can get it signed and mail it out to you. Just buy the autographed edition from our store and we’ll mail it out to you.

This book is already sold out at the distributor level, so order a copy now!

Podcast #11: New Format, Same Crap!

Podcast #11 (recorded 9/10/2018). This podcast was recorded after careful planning, well, kinda careful planning. Taking into consideration the last podcast, this should be spectacular!

  • House of Whispers (Vertigo/DC) release date 9/12
  • Cemetery Beach (Image) release date 9/12
  • Batman Damned (DC/Black Label) release date 9/19
  • Dead Rabbit (Image) release date 10/3
  • Black Badge (BOOM!) released 8/8

Listen as I pretend to have a format for the podcast. If you pay attention you can catch me getting confused by static, which was due to my mother calling my cell phone and hear me misuse the work ‘dearth’.

Check out Marvel’s books on sale 9/05/2018!

I know this is Marvel’s weekly flip advert, but please, PLEASE check out our post about us making September independent comic month.

On to the business. #1s, there are a few (see after shameless Cosmic Ghost Rider plug). Also, Cosmic Ghost Rider variants galore! The Immortal Hulk #5 Cosmic Ghost Rider variant (by Razzah) is incredible!

Who are the Asgardians of the Galaxy you ask? They are; Angela, the not-so-beloved half-sister of Thor. The hotheaded Valkyrie – and the human who shares her form, Annabelle Riggs. Skurge the Executioner, freshly returned from Hel. Throg, the mightiest frog of thunder. Kevin Masterson, the boy who took his father’s mace to become the hero Thunderstrike. And the Destroyer, the Asgardian armor built to take down Celestials – its wielder unknown. Dale Keown is doing the regular cover and it’s AwEsOmE!

Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover A Dale Keown)
Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover B Skottie Young)
Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover C Humberto Ramos)
Asgardians Of The Galaxy #1 (Cover D Cliff Chang)
Old Man Logan Annual #1 (Cover A Shane Davis)
Old Man Logan Annual #1 (Cover B Gerardo Sandoval)
Silver Surfer Annual #1 (Cover A Philip Tan)
Silver Surfer Annual #1 (Cover B Marcos Martin)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover A Geoff Shaw)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover B Ron Lim)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover C Stonehouse)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover D Esad Ribic)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover E Dave Johnson Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Thanos Legacy #1 (Cover F George Perez)

Oh yes, Thanos Legacy. So what happened between Thanos Wins & Infinity Wars? This fills in the gap & gives some insight into him losing his head in Infinity Wars (did a do a good enough job of being ambiguous to avoid spoilers?). Check out the sick Ribic variant (sorry, already sold)!

X-Men titles:

Astonishing X-Men #15 (Cover A Greg Land)
Astonishing X-Men #15 (Cover B Akcho Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Deadpool #4 (Cover A Nic Klein)
Deadpool #4 (Cover B Todd Nauck Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Weapon X #23
Wolverine Old Man Logan Volume 8 To Kill For TP
X-Men Gold #35

How about a special Alex Ross cover section.

Captain America #3 (Cover A Alex Ross), $3.99
Captain America #3 (Cover D Patrick Zircher Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Immortal Hulk #5 (Cover A Alex Ross)
Immortal Hulk #5 (Cover B Rahzzah Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)

By the way, Immortal Hulk is a great read. Al Ewing is one of the most underrated writers in comics. He can bounce back in forth with genres, Immortal Hulk has started as a horror book and is really good.

 

Rounding out the month:

Ant-Man And The Wasp #5 (Of 5)
Avengers #7 (Cover A Geoff Shaw)
Avengers #7 (Cover B Clayton Crain)
Avengers #7 (Cover C Tradd Moore Cosmic Ghost Rider Vs Variant)
Avengers #7 (Cover D Eve Ventrue Marvel’s Spider-Man Video Game Variant)
Ben Reilly The Scarlet Spider #23
Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 (Of 5)(Cover A Geoff Shaw)
Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 (Of 5)(Cover B Declan Shalvey): see the 1:25 variant below!
Cosmic Ghost Rider #3 (Of 5)(Cover C Ivan Shavrin)

Two solid tales from Donny Cates. Cosmic Ghost Rider is a fun, goofy book that would appeal to Deadpool fans & Death of the Inhumans is a dark, twisted tale.

Death Of The Inhumans #3 (Of 5)(Cover A Kaare Andrews)
Death Of The Inhumans #3 (Of 5)(Cover B Aaron Kuder Young Guns Variant Cover D)

Quicksilver No Surrender #5 (Of 5)
Spider-Man Deadpool #38
Star Wars #53 (Cover A David Marquez)
Star Wars #53 (Cover B Rod Reis Galactic Icon Variant)
Star Wars #53 (Cover C John Tyler Christopher Action Figure Variant)
Star Wars Doctor Aphra Annual #2 (Cover A Caspar Wijngaard)
Star Wars Doctor Aphra Annual #2 (Cover B Ashley Witter)
Venom First Host #2 (Of 5)(Cover A Mark Bagley)
Venom First Host #2 (Of 5)(Cover B Rod Reis)

The True Believers are great buys, get classic stories for only $1! When will you ever be able to get a Daredevil #1 for $1, seriously.

True Believers Marvel Knights 20th Anniversary Daredevil By Bendis And Maleev #1
True Believers Marvel Knights 20th Anniversary Daredevil By Lee And Everett #1
True Believers Marvel Knights 20th Anniversary Daredevil By Smith Quesada And Palmiotti #1
