We’ve got some great stuff coming in this week, the kind of stuff that’s worth a special trip to the comic shop!

Wolverine is back, Batman starts off DC’s new Black Label brand and we’ve got some great $1.00 reprints from Marvel!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, September 19th, 2018!

BATMAN

The big book this week is Batman Damned #1, DC’s first Black Label book, meaning adults only! Azzarello and Berjemo are a dream team on this $6.99 off format 3 issue mini series.

The Joker is dead, Batman can’t remember if he did it, and John Constantine has to help him figure things out. I read a preview and it’s great. Good Zatanna material too. (Watch out for Bruce Wayne’s wiener though. No joke.)

You will also want to keep an eye on Batman #55 this week, as something happens to Nightwing that will have major ramifications for awhile. You’ve been warned!

WOLVERINE AND MARVEL

After years and years of waiting, a big hole in the Marvel Universe is about to be filled. Wolverine is back by the people who killed him, Charles Soule and Steve McNiven. 

Return of Wolverine is a five issue mini series explaining how Logan came back from the dead. We’ll have a free lithograph to hand out with the first 40 copies sold as well. It’s been four years Logan, welcome back!

If you’ve been enjoying Infinity Wars, which I actually have, the first of the Infinity Warps titles is out. 

Solider Supreme is a two issue mini series featuring a mash up of Captain America and Doctor Strange! Be on the look out for more of these like Moon Knight Spider-Man and Iron Man Thor, X-23 Scarlet Witch and Black Panther Ghost Rider!

Marvel regularly releases $1.00 True Believer Reprints, but this week all four are truly great books.

You can get one dollar reprints of the Punisher’s first appearance in ASM #129, Mike Zeck’s first issue of the Punisher mini series, The first appearance of Iron Fist in Marvel Premiere, and the first meeting of Power Man and Iron Fist in Luke Cage’s own title!

Seriously, four bucks for a great history lesson. 

This is seriously a huge new comic day, so be sure to give yourself time to check out the whole table!

We’ve also been getting in more discounted graphic novels, as part of reinventing that section of the shop. If you’ve been in there, you know the books are super cheap now. This week a stand out is Wolverine Enemy of the State by Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. 

Regularly $29,99, this book is only $8.00 and it a great story where Wolverine rips his way through the entire Marvel Universe without holding back. Same guy who wrote Kick Ass, Civil War and the original Old Man Logan!

SINA GRACE

Remember this Friday is our signing with Sina Grace from 6 pm to 8 pm in conjunction with Flaming River Con! We’ll have free Ice-Man and X-Men Comics to give away to the first people in line too! Check out all the info on that here!

Oh yeah, here’s that Captain Marvel trailer! 

Hey! This Saturday is Batman Day at the shop! That means we’ll have two FREE Comic Books for you created exclusively for the day!

The first one is the first issue of Batman White Knight written and drawn by Sean Murphy.

Set in a world where The Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as “Jack,” sets about trying to right his wrongs.

First, he plans to reconcile with Harley Quinn, and then he’ll try to save the city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham City’s greatest villain: Batman!
The second book is Batman Lil Gotham, an all-ages book by Dustin Nguyen!

First, Robin needs Batman’s help to learn the true meaning of Halloween. Then, on Thanksgiving, Batman and Robin join the families of Gotham City around the table for a holiday feast-and birds of a feather flock together to stage a march against the city…led by The Penguin!

This book really deserves the all ages rating as it’s just as entertaining for adults as for kids!

To complement this, we’ll be offering:

  • 20% off all Batman Graphic Novels and Hardcovers
  • 50% off Batman Back Issues
  • 20% Batman Statues and Action Figures

What qualifies as a Batman back issue or graphic novel?

Literally, any book that has Batman in it. Show us Batman in the book and you’ll get the appropriate discount!

Remember…..

Just a heads up that’s we’ll be having a free signing with Sina Grace, writer of Ice-Man for Marvel Comics, from 6 pm to 8 pm on Friday, September 21st

This signing is in conjunction with the first annual Flaming River Con which will be held the next day on Saturday, September 22nd In Rocky River.

Sina will be autographing copies of his books, and we’ll even have FREE copies to give you for showing up!

The first 50 people in line will get a copy of both Ice-Man #6 (The starting point for Ice-Man in the Marvel Legacy restart) and the All New X-Men Annual #1 (Which contains one of my favorite stand-alone stories by him).

The first 100 people will just get the Ice-Man #6. (But that’s still pretty cool of us!)

This signing came at the perfect time, as Sina’s new Ice-Man #1 comes out this Wednesday, September 12th! Grab a copy for the signing in advance this week!

“He’s back! Iceman is back! Which is good, because someone is hunting the Morlocks for sport. Now it’s up to Bobby Drake to prevent another potential Mutant Massacre. But who’s behind this horrific hunt? You won’t believe it if we tell you! Guest-starring Bishop!”

We will be stocking lots of copies of the two Ice-Man graphic novels, which cover Sina’s original run on the book in its entirety. 

Sina also has an impressive library of graphic novels from Image Comics, and we’ll have all of those in stock as well. Titles like:

  • Self-Obsessed
  • Burn the Orphange
  • Lil Depressed Boy
  • Not My Bag
  • Nothing Lasts Forever

He also did the art on Penny Dora and the Wishing Box.

Be sure to check out Flaming River Con! They’ve gotten a lot of great press around town and the organizers have been working really hard to make it an annual thing. We’re excited about the opportunity to team up with them!
