Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, June 16th, 2021.

MARVEL COMICS

Well, it’s time to say goodbye to Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s Venom run, but not before the huge 200th issue comes out. 

$9.99 with LOTS of covers, including the one pictured above by JOCK. This book should give us an idea where Venom will stand in the Marvel Universe from here on out. 

It’s time for another Demon Days one shot by Peach Momoko featuring Wolverine’s sometimes girlfriend, Mariko. 

The book also features the Black Widow, and she’s on a really cool cover priced variant cover by J Scott Campbell.

The Hellfire Gala continues in one of it’s “marked as important” issues, the Planet Size X-Men One Shot.

If you get the regular X-Men title we’ll throw one aside for you. 

Oh hey! $49.99 gets you the new Hawkeye PVC Gallery Statue this week! 

Yup, that’s Pizza Dog!

DC COMICS

Over on the other side of the pond, Tom King takes on run at Supergirl in a new eight issue mini series.

After a successful run on Omega Men, Mister Miracle and Adam Strange; Supergirl seems like a weird choice for King’s writing, but that’s what make it so cool. Krypto’s on board too. If you’ve gotten previous King titles, we’ll throw one aside for you as well. 

(Don’t have a file so we can make these awesome predictions on what you’d like? Ask at the counter and start one! You same 10% on ALL your new comic purchases.)

Darick Robertson’s artwork in the new Legends of the Dark Knight series is something to behold, and his writing is not to shabby either. 

Be sure to check it out and enjoy the visual feast he has on display. 

We’ve finally got our act together, so copies of the new Batman / Fortnite #5 will be hitting the table on Wednesday. We’ve also got copies of issues #1 and #4 as well. 

The boys are truly excited for the DCeased Hope at World’s End HC. It’s an all new story (well, it was digital first, but who cares about that icky format right?) filling in some gaps in the previous time jump. 

Written by Tom Taylor as always and full of those really great moments we’ve gotten used to with this series. I read it last night and was fully entertained. Who doesn’t want to see Damian Wayne assume his rightful mantle?

Milestone is back and Static #1 is here.

Dare I say that Virgil Hawkins was a prototype for Miles Morales? Six issue mini series.

In the realm of really important books, DC has rounded up all it’s Represent! stories into one $9.99 book.

“New voices present relevant, topical visions of social change and personal histories, some true-to-life while others are semi-fictionalized accounts of real experiences. All have one thing in common—innovative styles and compelling stories which examine how our culture builds understanding, tracing society’s arc toward justice as we evolve in pursuit of a more just and compassionate world.”

There was a lot of demand to put these books into print and now we’ve got it. 

SMALL PRESS & Netflix

Sure Jupiter’s Legacy will not be renewed on Netflix (but hey, it had some hard competition with Invincible) but that doesn’t mean Mark Millar’s new series won’t be great.

A twelve part sequel detailing the next generation of the Sampson family. Tommy Lee Edwards art is always easy to look at too. 

A quick shout out to the MODOK show with Patton Oswald on Hulu. I wish it were a funnier show but I find myself in love with some on the concepts going on there.

Where else can you see the Leader, Mister Sinister, Madame Masque, Kang, Orb, Whirlwind, Angar the Screamer, Tenpin, Poundcakes, Armadillo, Mandrill and the Melter all in one episode. It’s really a parade of Comic Book / Movie Tropes and I love reflecting on it. It is also a guilty pleasure. (spoiler alert: Tatterdemalion appears in a later episode with Nathan Fillion as Wonder Man.)

First off we’d like to thank everyone for a very successful week of peeling back the CoVid restrictions. Everyone was super cool about it, some people wore masks, some didn’t, and everyone was respectful of each other. It felt good to be able to see everyone! Hopefully by the end of the month we’ll have the kids table back up, which is a huge thing to me. 

On to the books!

DC COMICS

First up is DC’s Pride One Shot, nine new stories featuring LGBTQIA from the DCU. 

$9.99 book with the first appearance of Dreamer from the Supergirl show. 

We finally have copies of Batman Fornite #1 (3rd print) and Batman Fornite #4 (2nd print) hitting the table! Lots of them actually!

Both books are $4.99 each and have the corresponding download codes in them!

Geoff John’s and Gary Frank have gotten back together for another Batman Earth One Original Hardcover!

These books are always a hit and Johns was the writer of Three Jokers. (so yeah it’s awesome.)

MARVEL COMICS

Marvel is continuing their three big storylines this week, The Hellfire Gala in the X-titles, War of the Bounty Hunters in the Star Wars books, and honestly Heroes Reborn is incredibly fun and a new shop favorite. 

I thought last week’s Hellfire Gala issues were great, it’s crazy to have a multi-part crossover that takes place in one night. This week we get to see the new X-Men team in X-Men issue #21.

Excalibur #21 is also available.

Heroes Reborn is on issue #6 (of 7, it’s weekly.) but the real fun looks like the Nighthawk Spider-Gwen mashup of Night-Bird.

It’s a one shot to go with the regular title. 

War of the Bounty Hunters continues if Star Wars Bounty Hunters #13.

You can also get a second printing of the book that launched it all, the War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha One Shot. 

In the indie realm, Image Comics has a new book from Kyle Starks. (remember him, he came out to the shop when the Rick-Mobile was here.)

The Six Sidekicks of Trigger Keaton! “The world’s most unlikable action star has been found dead, and his previous TV sidekicks are looking to solve the mystery. But how can you catch a murderer when almost everyone hated the victim? Now these sidekicks are going to learn what it means to be the stars of the show…that is, if any of them survive the STUNTMAN WAR!”

Lastly, heads up that we just got a new collection in and it will be out Wednesday morning. A late 90’s early 2000’s collection but everything was so meticulously taken care of the average grade is a 9.4 plus. Back issue are still 25% off as always!

Thanks again! Get ready for some Free Comic Book Day details soon!

First up, be advised that as of June 2nd the decision to wear a mask in the shop is your own! Health measures in Ohio are now down and it’s up to you to decide what’s best for you. We will support you decision either way! To celebrate we will completely rerack the back issue wall with new books! Check out our Facebook video to see what’s up there.

This week is the debut of the Hellfire Gala in Marauders #21, a twelve part storyline in all the “X” titles in the month of June!

It actually looks like alot of fun, with all the stuff you’d expect at a big party, outfits, party crashers and big announcements. (like the reveal of the new X-Men team and supposedly a major death in the final act.)

You can also get two more parts this weeks, Hellions #12 and X-Force #20!

INDIE COMICS

For fans of Something is Killing the Children, James Tynion IV has a new horror book from DC, Nice House on the Lake #1.

“Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter—well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private—so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice?”

Robert Kirkman’s cool kung-fu epic “Firepower” hits it’s 12th issue this week, and there’s 15 different covers to celebrate. (Like this one from Frank Miller)

Lastly, on new Krypto graphic novel for the kids!
