We’ve got some exciting new releases this Wednesday, and Saturday is Local Comic Shop Day, a day to celebrate your LCS with some exclusive items you can only get in brick and mortar independently owned comic shops!
Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, November 20th, 2019!
First up is the finale to the incredibly popular Absolute Carnage series!
It’s Carnage Vs Venom to the Death!
Lots of variants and if you can wait till Saturday there’s even a cover priced LCSD variant!
Deadpool gets a new ongoing series written by Kelly Thompson with trippy art by Chris Bachelo!
If you’ve been reading comics for a (long) while, you may have heard about Denny O’Neil and Deny’s Cowan’s classic Question run. It’s a hidden gem, with the background of Hub City being as important to the character as Gotham and Metropolis is to those other two guys. He starts the series off as a loser and basically fails at his entire mission during the run. Here’s an article I found.
This week the Question returns in an over sized Black Label four issue mini series with Jeff Lemire writing (a perfect choice) and Deny’s Cowan returning to do the art work. (along with Bill Sienkiewicz!)
The Question was even the basis for Rorschach in Watchman, before Alan Moore had the Charlton characters pulled out from under him.

We’ll have all these items on a first come first serve basis starting at 10am. Some are so limited that we only got one or two copies, so we’ve like to focus on the stuff we got lots of.
The leading book by far is the Walking Dead The Alien One Shot, a canon story by local writer Brian K Vaughan of Saga fame.
It’s a $5.99 self contained story about what happened to Rick’s younger brother in Spain, which was briefly mentioned way back in Walking Dead #3.
It’s really a great story, and a great way to show your support of the local comic shop!
We ordered 200 so we could have some throughout the holiday season.
The second book is a variant cover to Hazel and Cha Cha Save Christmas, an Umbrella Academy special one shot.
The regular cover comes out on Wednesday, but we ordered to sell out so people could get the LCSD variant on Saturday. $4.99 and likely another great story to celebrate the day. (isn’t a great story what the LCS is really about?)
Also, to make the day a little more fun, we made reprints of four of our most popular 11 x 17 cardstock prints, and we’ll be giving them away FREE with any purchase. That’s right, you can spend just $1.00 on anything and get all four prints.
These include Ladies Night, Superman Americana, Stan Lee “I Have So Many More Stories to Tell” and our Superman map to Cleveland.
We will also make these prints available during Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. If you’d like to know more about those event click on over to our website!
