It’s a really big new comic week at the shop! Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, February 2nd, 2021!
Star Wars High Republic is the new multimedia launch from Lucasfilm, set in the glory days of the Old Republic, when the Jedi flourished.
First and second prints of the new #1 sold out instantly nation wide, and the second issue look to do the same this week. We will have copies of the first issue of Star Wars High Republic Adventures coming out this week, with stories skewering towards an all ages audience.
Amazing Spider-Man #55 had a great cover by Patrick Gleason, and second prints of that are out this week if you missed it.
In additon to being a fun free for all over the right to wield the Phoenix Force, Avengers #42 has one of the last Alex Ross Timeless variants, and it’s a doozy.
We love Hawkeye in our shop, so I ordered up a bunch to make sure everyone was covered. (We even have a 1:200 sketch cover hiting the table)
The King in Black continues this week with a Black Knight one shot. Check out the character that Kit Harington will be playing in the new Eternals movie. (Whenever that comes out.)
Other KIB tie in’s this week include Venom #33, Return of the Valkyries #2, Gwenon Vs Carnage #2 and the Marauders KIB one shot.
All the pieces of WandaVision started to come together in episode four. I really dig it!
Marvel just releases the entire James Robinson Scarlet Witch run into one big graphic novel. (previously it was contained in three)
(hint: for the direction the show is going in, check out the Avengers Disassembled graphic novel, it’s the start of Bendis’ run on Avengers and looks to be the foundation for the show.)
We’ve got six new DC Future State books coming out, as well as second prints of sold out first issues, with cool design covers that look like this.
New FS titles include Next Batman #3, Flash #2, Swamp Thing #2, Superman of Metropolis #2, Wonder Woman #2 and Harley Quinn #2.
We still love DC’s oversized Black Label format, and the final issue of Harly Quinn and the Birds of Prey is out. It’s got art by Amanda Conner!
The final Black Label issue of Hellblazer Rise and Fall is out too, and has been the best John Constantine story in years.
That’s it for this week! Thanks everyone!
