Happy Valentine’s weekend! Here’s the featured new releases for February 10th, 2021!

DC COMOCS

Let’s start with DC’s giant $9.99 Valentine’s Day special, full of all new short stories. Makes a perfect gift for the comic book lover in your life!

Future State continues with Dark Detective #3, Green Lantern #2, Justice League #2, Kara Zor-El Superwoman #2, Robin Eternal #2, Superman/Wonder Woman #2 and Teen Titans #2. 

<insert FS Dark Detective #3>

We’ll also have second prints Flash #1, Kara Zor-El Superwoman #1 and the much sought after Teen Titans #1 featuring the first comic appearance of Red X.

MARVEL COMICS

Over at Marvel the boys are going crazy about Wolverine Black, White and Blood #3, an anthology series with a story by Donny Cates featuring Wolverine and the Cosmic Ghost Rider! (There’s a story in there by John Ridley too, from the Other History of the DC Universe, his Marvel debut.)

King in Black tie in’s include the KIB Black Panther one shot as well as Daredevil #27, Fantastic Four #29 and Thunderbolts #2.

 This week’s big indie book from Image is Radiant Black, for fans of Invincible and Power Rangers. 

“Nathan Burnett has just turned thirty, and things aren’t great: He’s working (and failing) at two jobs, his credit card debt is piling up, and his only move… is moving back home with his parents. But when Nathan discovers and unlocks the ethereal, cosmic RADIANT, he’s given the power to radically change his fortunes! There’s just one problem: The powers don’t belong to him. And the COSMIC BEINGS who created them want them back… by any means necessary.”

For anyone who missed it, HaHa #1 has a second printing. A horror anthology featuring clown stories by the writer of Ice Cream Man, W. Maxwell Prince.

I’m stuck is officer’s training all week on the Cleveland Fire Department, so be good to the staff in my absence. (They don’t really need me there anyway.)

Stop by the shop on Valentine’s Day and we’ll have some free graphic novels to give away with any purchase as our way of saying we love you!

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!

It’s the final week of January and we’ve got a full line up of new comic releases!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, January 27th, 2021!

DC Comics Comin’ ATCHA

DC Future State has six new titles, including FS Aquaman #1, FS Dark Detective #2, FS Batman Superman #1, FS Suicide Squad #1, FS Legion of Superheroes and FS Superman vs Imperious Lex #1!

Dark Detective will catch you up with what Bruce Wayne is doing, Suicide Squad looks like an evil rif on the Justice League, and Superman Vs Lex is by Mark Russell, who always puts an interesting spin on things.

Batman Black and White #2 is out, with three different covers and stories by Tom King, Mitch Gerads, David Aja (Hawkeye and Iron Fist artist!) and many more!

We really loved the first issue of The Other History of the DC Universe, and issue two will stand on it’s own merit as well as complimenting it. 

Told from the point of view of marginalized DC heroes, this one features Bumblebee and Mal Duncan. I’m a big 1970’s Teen Titans fans so this one’s at the top of my pile this week. 

MARVEL COMICS

Dardevil #26 is not only a King in Black tie in, but features Elektra as the new Daredevil.

A shop favorite, Savage Avengers, has a Conan / Deadpool team up and is also a King in Black tie in. Fun stuff!

We also thought you’d dig seeing Alex Ross’ take on Rob Liefeld’s 90’s work on the cover of Marvel #4. (cover only, but the interior stories have been really cool. 

Lastly, we are starting to get inventory back in! We got new PVC statues, Diamond Select Action Figures, and most importantly Current and Silver Age bags are back in! The bad news is that the price went up to 7 cents for bags and 12 cents for boards, the good news is that that’s still lower than the industry standards. The price of plastic has just gone up during the pandemic in general I guess. 

See you this week at the comic shop!
