While not a huge new comic week, this has to be the most interesting selection in 2021 so far!

But first let’s talk about Winston World!

Winston World has always been our three day sale to coincide with Wizard World downtown. We even ripped of their art style to hijack their social media presence. Well just because the circus isn’t coming to town doesn’t mean we can’t have a sale. 

From Friday March 5th to Sunday March 7th we’ll have:

  • 50% off ALL Back Issues!
  • 10% off EVERYTHING else in the shop! (we do mean everything.)

We’re not allowed to use the foyer during tax season but we’ll fill our counter space with as many $1.00 boxes as possible, 50 cents each for $1.00 or more. We’ll also keep refilling those dollar boxes all weekend! 

Oh yeah! Winston ironically even made it into Cleveland.com this week too! 

So on to that really interesting new comic book week!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021!

MARVEL COMICS

The big book this week is super hot cover artist Peach Momoko’s first full length book from Marvel, Demon Days X-Men #1. 

A reimagining of the Marvel Universe with Psylocke and Venom up front! This will be a quarterly five issue mini series, to give her ample time to complete her work.

WandaVision has been a treat, so here’s a chance to get one of the last Alex Ross Timeles variants on Avengers #43. Yup, it’s the Vision and only cover price at $3.99!

We can’t keep Star Wars High Republic books in stock, and this week we’ve got two new one’s hitting the table. (well, actually three.)

Star Wars High Republic #3 and High Repubic Adventures #2 are brand new, and Star Wars High Republic #2 gets a 2nd print. 

DC COMICS

DC Future State is over, and we’re now into Infinite Frontier, starting with a $5.99 one shot that will lead into everything that’s to come. 

The boys read it, really liked it, so we upped out orders at the last minute. 

We’ve got three new #1’s from DC this week, Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing and Crime Syndicate. 

Peachmaker’s leading the Squad now, and they’re heading into Arkham Asylum to recruit Talon from Court of Owls. 

Swamp Thing #1 is the first of a ten issue mini series by the same writer as the Future State book, Ram V. 

Earth 3 has been reborn and with it the new Crime Syndicate is here. (you know, the world where the Justice League is evil.)

INDIE COMICS

It’s a big week for indie books as well, with BOOM’s BRZRKR #1 leading the pack. Yup, this is the much asked about book written by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt. 

This is going to be a big one, as preorders here were huge. 

Image has a new #1 as well, Nocterra by the hit team of Scott Snyder and Tony Daniel. 

“Ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous shades, the only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light. Enter Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled ferryman who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen wheeler.” Yes!

We’ve got the new “Boys” collection from Garth Ennis! Set 12 years after the events of the original series, “Dear Becky” is the first new graphic novel since the show has come out. 

Here’s an under the radar staff pick from ONI Comics, Jonna and the Unpossible Monsters #1, written and drawn by shop favorite Chris Samnee. (his wife co wrote it as well.)

“Rainbow has been searching for her sister, Jonna, for a year. The last time she saw Jonna was also the first time she saw one of the monsters that now roam the planet. They’re big, ugly, and dangerous creatures, driving humanity to the brink of extinction. Though there isn’t much hope for survival out in the wild, Rainbow knows that her sister is out there somewhere-and she’ll do anything to find her.”

Whew! Alright, that’s it for this week! Get your lists together for Winston World and we’ll see you this week at the shop!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, February 24th, 2021!

Marvel Comics

Marvel made another “Voices” one shot for Black History Month, with stories featuring Black Panther, Storm, Blade, Falcon, Ironheart, Luke Cage and Spectrum!

Here’s a cool video I dug up about the project:

We’ve got some cool indie books this week, like Stray Dogs #1, a very Disney Animation adn Don Bluth inspired project. 

I wasn’t sure how to order this book, billed as Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs, but it looks really cool. 

Here’s another video!

With Walking Dead over and Saga on hold, Crossover by Donny Cates is our best selling indie title!

It’s the comic book about collecting comic books! Super fun if you’re not already reading it, we’ve got issues #1-3 in stock as well. 

Looking for a new graphic novel? Try James Tynion IV’s (Something is Killing the Children) Department of Truth. 

What if every conspiracy you’ve ever heard was true? Issues #1-5 for only $9.99 and issue #6 comes out this week as well!

DC Comics

This is DC’s last week for Future State books, and last week’s Superman Worlds of War #2 was one of our favorite issues. That leads into this weeks Superman House of El One Shot, which is also the first appearance of the Red King. 

Every so often the world of superhero movies blows my mind, and that’s happening with the Peacemaker, set to be in the new Suicde Squad movie as well as his own HBO Max series. 

“The man who loves peace so much he’s willing to kill for it.” These were some of the first comics I ever read from Charlton in the mid 70’s. 

Well, you get to see a little Peacemaker in this week’s Suicide Squad #2.

We’ve got the follow up issue to the previous Generations One Shot, this time called Generations Forged.

An unlikely team of 1939 Batman, Kamandi, Superboy, Steel, Starfire, Sinestro, Booster Gold, and Dr. Light.

The stories in Batman Black and White have been stellar, and this issue looks to be no exception.

Ironically featuring a story by John Ridley and Olivier Coipel, who are also doing a story together in the above mentioned Marvel Voices Legacy One Shot. ( I don’t know if this is the first time something like this has happened but it’s worth taking note of.)

Winston World

We’re also happy to annouce that we don’t need Wizard World to have Winston World this year! Our yearly sale to coincide with the convention that will not be happening is still going to happen. 

From Friday March 5th to Sunday March 7th we’ll have:

  • 50% off all back issues
  • 10% off everything else in the shop

I’ll also fill as much of the counter space as I can with $1.00 stock, and I will sell them for 50 cent each for 100 or more! (I will also keep refilling anything that we sell all weekend.)

Thanks everyone! We look forward to seeing you in the shop!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, February 17th, 2021!

MARVEL COMICS

X-Men Legends #1 flashes back to the 90’s and the glory days of X-history!

This in-continuity comic will begin with the definitative back story on the Summers brothers, as the Shi’ar return to Earth. Marvel even found two 90’s warhorses to bring the book to life, Fabian Nicieza and Brett Booth. 

We’ve also got another issue of the core King in Black title by Donny Cates!

Immortal Hulk has another one shot attached to it, this one drawn and written by Declan Shalvey!

While not written by Al Ewing, I’ve noticed that all these one shots have been on caliber with his work on the title. 

Finally! We’ve got a second issue of TMNT Last Ronin!

DC COMICS

We’ve got two more weeks of Future State books from DC, and this week includes Immortal Wonder Woman #2, Catwoman #2, Nightwing #2, Shazam #2, Superman Worlds of War #2 and the Next Batman #4. 

We’ve also got design second prints of Immortal Wonder Woman #1, Green Lantern #1, Robin Eternal #1 and Justice League #1. 

Batman Catwoman #3 is out, and it’s our favorite Bat title right now. some really fun story elements here, Tom King is back!

Lastly we’d like to thank you for a really great Valentine Day, we had one of our best Sunday’s on record! Wow!

Stay warm Cleveland! See you soon at the comic book shop!
