It’s a another new comic week with a full week of DC and graphic novels only from Marvel.

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, June 17th, 2020.

DC Titles

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo return to the Dark Multiverse with the new Dark Nights Death Metal six issue mini series.

A sequal to Dark Nights: Metal and a follow up to their succesful Batman Last Knight on Earth.

A shop favorite has been the Wonder Woman Black Label series Dead Earth.

In this adults only series Dianna goes looking for help at the Fortress of Solitude. Great dystopian material and a really great new take on Wonder Woman.

Looking for a fun all ages book? Try Primer, from DC’s original graphic novel line.

Imagine a superhero graphitti artist who gets her powers from cans of paint. Really fun book.

Marvel Titles

In their efforts to catch up, Marvel only has graphic novels again this week. Here’s a quick and easy checklist on what’s available.

 Extra shout out to this amazing $100 Silver Surfer Omnibus containing all the early Stan Lee / John Bucsema material.

We also have a great new indie book from BOOM Studios, Wynd by James Tynion IV (Something is Killing the Children)

“Magical heritage is punishable by death in Pipetown, so a young boy named Wynd must keep his true identity – and pointy ears – a secret from everyone, even if it means he’ll never have the normal life he wants. But when his secret is threatened, Wynd will be forced to leave his home behind to embark on a dangerous quest that will put him at the heart of a royal conspiracy beyond his imagination.” It’s all ready gotten alot of positive buzz.

That’s it. We’ll have to fund some more fun stuff to put on the new comic table!

Well, some of the back log has started to work it’s way to the shop, and we’ve got a really great week of new comics!

DC Comics

The big book of the week is the Joker 80th Anniversary issue! 100 pages for $9.99! Decades variants just like the previous specials.

Full of Joker art work and short stories. We went long on this one so you should be good to come in anytime this week.

(on that note, if you didn’t pick up the Catwoman 80th last week you should have. It was super fun and well worth the money. We sold out but we’re getting more back in.)

Also, finally, our copies of Batman #92 are in! If you’ve been looking to follow up on Punchline, the Joker’s new apprentice,/ girlfriend(?) then this is the book for you.

For even more Batman, there’s a Secret Files this week, as well as the new Batman Adventures Continues mini series. (written by Paul Dini, who was basically in charge of the original animated series!)

Marvel Comics

Marvel is shipping comic books again this week, and we’ve got new issues of Miles Morales Spider Man and Deadpool.

There are also new issue of Black Cat, Daredevil, Excaliber and New Mutants!

Small Press Comics

Image has a great new #1 this week with Adventureman #1 by Matt Fraction (!) and the Dodson’s!

Triple sized issue for only $3.99 and Fraction is know for his work on Hawkeye and Iron Fist. A female character inspired by an old Pulp hero!

BOOM has finally re-released the Something Is Killing the Children graphic novel, along with a new issue. Highly Highly recommended.

It’s also been a rough week, as DC has just annouced that they are servering their relationshop with Diamond. What does that mean for you? Eh, nothing really, it’s just more stuff for us to figure out. We’ll keep you posted.

Otherwise summer is here! Our CoVid protocols are in place, we’re open on Mondays again, Thursdays from 11 ^am to noon are at risk hours. We still encourage people to wear masks but as the climate lightens up we understand if less and less people wear them. (We still have to, so don’t mind us.)

The shop is also pro protest, anti riot, pro good cop, anti bad cop. We also strive to create an all inclusive environment where everyone is treated equally, and we don’t much abide by people who don’t feel the same. Help ever hurt never.

Thanks everyone!

This is one of the first week’s we can focus on new comic releases!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, June 3rd 2020!

DC Comics

First up is this amazing Catwoman 80th Anniversary Special!

Clocking in at $9.99 it’s full of so much great material I can’t say enough about it. The Ed Brubaker / Cameron Stewart story reads like an homage to Darwyn Cooke and it’s worth the price of admission alone. Lots of decades variant covers too. They’ve done these anniversary issues for other characters but this one comes off as a labor of love for all involved. Next week is the Joker!

Also in the $9.99 range is the new Birds of Prey Black Label one shot, set in the continuity of the new Harley Quinn movie.

Written by Brian Azzarello, who gave us 100 Bullets and showed us Batman’s weenus in Batman Dammed. Worth the price!

Marvel Comics

Marvel only has graphic novels this week as part of their slow return to publishing, which we’re a fan of. The standout this week is the new Hickman X-Men graphic novel, which is his direct follow up to House and Powers of X.

Indie Comics

We finally have a new Sabrina Comic!

Archie dropped the ball by not having a comic in place when the Netflix show turned out to be a hit. It might be too late now but it’s a good looking book, and what you were likely looking for back then.

It you liked Amazon Prime’s The Boys show, Garth Ennis is back with a new series, The Boys: Dear Becky #1.

Not for kids. (Heck, it’s likely too much for most adults as well.) If you’ve watched the show you know what’s going on here.

Figures and Discount Books

We also got two new sets of Marvel Legends figures in, X-Men and Avengers. (which included some gamerverse figures.) Here they are…

This still leaves some room on the new comic book table, so we’ve put out some books at only 25 cents each!

We’ve got seven long boxes going out at a quarter each. (A quarter man, it’s like the 80’s in here.) Apologies to anyone who invested heavily in comics and beanie babies in the 90’s. Multiple copies of Maxx #1, Darker Image #1, Turok #1, RAVAGE 2099 #1 (back off man, it’s written by Stan Lee.) and more? It’s a flipper paradise!

We have also decided to add eight boxes of DC Vertigo books as well, IN ORDER! These books will only be out until Tuesday!

Oh yeah, we’re open on Mondays now. We’ve got our deep cleaning down and are confident that we can knock it out and comfortibly be open. We will continue to have our at risk customer hours from 11am till noon on Thursdays.

Comics at the Corner

This week we helped Dawn Arrington with her ‘Comics at the Corner’ project, to help put literacy in the hands of neighbors and friends in the Buckeye and Mt Pleasant neighborhoods.

“After seeing the effects of adult illiteracy in my neighborhood firsthand, I decided to start Comics at the Corner. Comics at the Corner seeks to put relatable and visually appealing forms of literature in as many hands as possible by way of culturally relevant comic books featuring characters of color.” Since March we’ve been rounding up comics and today Dawn picked up over 1,000 books featuring characters of color. “Unfortunately, the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood has the city of Cleveland’s highest illiteracy rate, above 90%. I’ve witnessed the effects first hand, conversely, I’ve also witnessed the impact of putting something relatable and enjoyable in the hands of the people and to see their faces light up because of it. My goal is to keep putting comics in the hands of as many people in my community as possible.”

We also donated 50 all ages Black Panther graphic novels to Dawn’s cause and I hope these books help create the spark for reading that they did for me.

As far as this weeks social issues go, we’re pro protest, anti riot, and we’ll continue to provide a safe space for all as well as helping out members of our community like Dawn where ever we can, like we always have. (and always will.)

Thanks everyone, for being awesome through everything that’s going on right now. I really like being in the shop again and selling in person.
