Conventions season is over (for now), and it’s back to business as usual at CNJComics!

Here’s what going on in the shop this week!

FEATURED TITLES

Iron Fist made it’s debut on Netflix last week, with a slow start and a fair ending. (Jim really likes Colleen Wing.)

Marvel’s timed a new ongoing to coincide with the release, with the first issue coming out Wednesday, March 22nd.

Written by Ed Brisson, THE GAUNTLET STARTS HERE!

“K’un Lun is in ruins. The chi fueling Danny’s fists is wavering. Is there a future for the Iron Fist? Danny Rand pushes himself to the breaking point, finding fights to prove his worth. But a bigger fight than he can handle may have found him…”

Here’s the 1:50 variant cover to issue #1 by Alex Ross! (As well as a cool poster.)

If you’re looking to read up on this character we’ve got some graphic novels for you, starting with the five star Immortal Iron Fist by Hawkeye’s Matt Fraction and David Aja. 

The definitive modern Iron Fist story, we can’t recommend this enough. Marvel finally put the whole thing in one softcover for $39.99.

If you’re looking for more classic fare and where the character began, we’ve got the Iron Fist Epic Collection, reprinting his first appearances Claremont, Byrne and Gil Kane. It’s all here for another $39.99.

The most current storyline was painter Kaare Andrews Iron Fist Living Weapon, complied completely here in one volume. A bit of a quirkier take and Danny Rand. 

New the week is the Iron Fist Book of Changes Graphic Novel, collecting stories from the 90’s by key artists like Jae Lee and Sam Keith. 

JASON LOVES DOCTOR STRANGE DAY

Visit the shop this Sunday, March 26th for “Jason Loves Doctor Strange Day”.

We’ll be watching Doctor Strange on loop all day, as well as giving away free copies of a reprint collection of the first three issues of Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo’s Doctor Strange run. (because Jason Loves It.)

You can also enter yourself in a raffle for the Complete Ditko Doctor Strange Omnibus, an amazing collection of the Doctor’s earliest trippy appearances. 

The winner will be drawn at the end of the day. 

Ditko rules: 

Where else will you get to watch Doctor Strange with Jason actually in the room with you?!

Lastly, we’d like to thank everyone for shopping local during Winston World. We are now poised to give you another amazing free comic book day for 2017!

We’ve got some cool product on the table and some cool specials and giveaways to go with it!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, February 22, 2017.

We’re going to hit you with the giveaway right-a-way. 

Doctor Strange says…

Stop by the shop on Wednesday and we’ll have a FREE full sized Doctor Strange Movie Poster and Eye of Agamotto keychain for the first 100 people. You know, to celebrate the release of the movie on DVD next Tuesday.

Marvel decided to liquidate some of their Omnibuses, and we were lucky enough to put our order in early enough that we actually got some. (They went pretty fast) These huge editions will be sold for 50% off retail. We’ve got quite a few different one’s, but here’s four we went long on because with believe in them so much:

27 issues of Rick Remender’s Uncanny Avengers run with art by pretty much everyone. For me, this is the best modern Avengers story of the last ten years. Remender handles a multi villain epic with believability and clear motivation. Harkens back to the Shooter/Michelinie era, and even has a visual homage that lines up with the classic Avengers Annual 10. Very dense and well worth the read. Regular $99.99 for only $50.00!

Trying to get ready for Jack Kirby’s 100th birthday? Here’s a huge tomb of all the Lee and Kirby stuff, and even all the Steranko stuff as well. EVERYTHING! Same deal, regular $99.99 for only $50.00!

The Guardians of the Galaxy Solo Classic Omnibus is just the thing you need to get ready for the new movie in May! Old the old solo stuff from the characters from the 1960’s and 70’s. Smoke a joint and get cosmic with the Marvel Universe. Regular $125 for only $62.50.

No way could the entire Fraction/Aja run of Hawkeye be on the liquidation list! Well it was true believers. All 22+ issues of this incredible run for only $50, regular $99.99! (We’ve also got copies of the complete Matt Fraction Fantastic Four Omnibus in as well as a slew of others!)

Okay, we can tell you a little about what’s new this week now! (finally!)

Not everyone is following Captain America Steve Rogers, but they should be. Everything Nick Spencer is spinning in this book will lead into the big Secret Empire storyline this summer. (Beginning on Free Comic Book Day with a free special!) Not always action heavy and not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve really been enjoying it. That crazy Hail Hydra idea really turned into something. 

Plus, the Taskmaster is in this issue, and I just won a Taskmaster Shield in the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Charity Auction in Memphis at the ComicsPro meeting!

The Shield was donated by Patrick Bower of Challengers Comics in Chicago and is one of a kind, made by the guy who makes Alex Ross’ props for his models. We’ll have it around the shop for photo ops and we’ll specifically be bringing it out to our first appearance at Cleveland ConCoction on March 11th. We’ll be putting together a photo booth with some of our best stuff, including the Ghostbusters pack, Thor’s Hammer and Cap’s Shield. 

This week is also the release of the new Dark Crystal 12 issue maxi series from BOOM Studios!

Written by Simon Spurrier, this series and a sequel to the original movie! 

Ron Richie, the founder of BOOM Studios, gave the keynote speech at the ComicsPro meeting this year, and it was heartfelt and meaning full to retailers.

He was even nice enough to take Jim where to buy Cialis and I out to dinner where Jim watched me eat Memphis Barbeque. (He’s a vegetarian.) Not a fan of dry rub. 

Here’s another list of things that went down at the meeting. (Take it with a grain of salt, it’s from Bleeding Cool.)

Finally, if you’ve been getting the FREE books by Robert Kirkman for Image’s 25th Anniversary, we’ve got another one for you this week, Outcast #25.

This is a great book, and a great television show as well. Think Walking Dead style mythology, but with a focus on Possession. Season One is complete, and season two will be out soon.

We’ll be giving out this book FREE with any purchase this week to people of age. 

Okay, that’s it! We’ll see you this week at the shop!

 

CNJComics Loves It’s Customers!

Come out and celebrate Valentine’s Day with us on Tuesday, February 14th for a chance to win some free stuff by pulling a Valentine out of our party box!

Marvel recently participated in an overship program for the months of December and January. Bleeding Cool recently had a few ideas about what to do with all the over shipped comics.

We’ve decided to turn them into Valentine’s for our beloved customers!

We wound up with about two full comic boxes of extra comics, all brand new from the past two months. We’ve also got a box of Marvel graphic novels to give a way.

Stop in the shop on Valentine’s Day, and when you check out you can pull a Valentine out of our super cool box. (Designed by Dee Piotrowski)

The Valentine will let you know if you get to pick out 5, 10 or even 20 books for free! Some will even allow you to pick out a graphic novel from the box we put together.

Every Valentine will be a winner, just like you!

It goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway) the earlier you stop by the better the selection.

Someone gave me a random Valentine at a coffee shop last year and it really made my day, so we thought we’d try and replicate that through this gesture. (Plus I got to pick out some cool superhero Valentine’s)

As always, thanks you for being a loyal customer! That’s your gift to us 365 days a year.
