Friday is Black Friday, but it’s a whole week now so whatever!

Saturday is Small Business Saturday and a great day to visit any small business you’d like to see live through the pandemic!

Sunday will be the last day to dig through the $1 books for quite some time, so make the most of it. 

Please be extra aware of you surroundings in the shop, and give people some space while they’re looking through stuff. Masks are required, we have our occupany rating posted, so don’t be offended if a staff member checks you on anything, they’re just trying to keep themselves and you safe. (as well as making sure we’re open through the holiday season.) Everyone’s been doing great in our shop so far, so let’s keep it up!

This week’s stand out new releases include one that seems like it came out of nowhere and took the staff by storm, The Other History of the DC Universe #1.

Written by John Ridley, the screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave, “it examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.”

From a classic comic collector, it really examines key moments from DC history with a different perspective, almost like Kurt Busiek’s Marvels did in the 90’s. This issue follows Jefferson Pierce, as he becomes Black Lightning. Each issue can likely be read alone or as part of a whole. It’s prose and artwork but really masterfully done. Great work. 

For fun DC also has the Death Metal Multiverse Who Laughs, a one shot with a lighter look at the Dark Multiverse. 

Evil Superpets anyone?

This is also the week to pick up your FREE DC Nation Future Slate preview book!

In January and February all of DC’s series will take a jump into the Future, with a series of 23 new mini series. This book will give you the low down as well as a checklist that you can turn in to manage your file. (We know how we’re going to adjust some of the books in your file based on what you already get, but we’d love to hear from you too!)

This week also wraps of X of Swords with the XOS Destruction one shot. 

Honestly, I haven’t read it yet, as we keep selling out of chapters, but I look forward to adding it to my pile as people have really enjoyed it here. 

That’s it. Again Please consider shopping small this week. Each small business has it’s own culture and by choosing to spend your dollars there you are making an active choice to keep that culture alive. I’m not just talking about us, I’m talking about any place you enjoy standing in. Thanks everyone! Stay safe this holiday!
