It’s finally warming up! Everyone’s out and about and we’ve got a full week of new comics coming in!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, March 24th 2021!

MARVEL COMICS

The book we’re most excited about is Carnage Black, White and Blood #1, a four issue anthology of Carnage short stories. 

This one even has a cover priced Gleason variant, similar to the others that were incredibly popular.

Spidey’s new costume debuted last issue but this is the one that really tells the story, Amazing Spider-Man #62!

Marvel got the license for the Aliens comics, and the first Marvel issue of is here!

Parental Advisory for this one! A whole new world of Alien comics begins here.

DC COMICS

Over at DC we’re got a new Harley Quinn #1 as part of the Infinite Frontier initiative. 

Stunning art by Riley Rossmo as Harley sorts her life out post Joker War.

Teen Titans gets a new launch with Teen Titans Academy #1.

The original 80’s teen are the teachers and there’s lots of new students inside. (including Red X!)

The current Batman Black and White mini series has provided me with some of my favorite short stories this year.

This issue has names like Chip Zdarsky, Nick Bradshaw, Terry Dodson and the aforementioned Riley Rossmo! Great stories here!

INDIE COMICS

Indie wise Firefly starts off with a whole new crew in Brand New Verse #1. 

20 years after the movie Wash and Zoe’s daughter Emma has her own crew!

We are finally getting in the Foil covers to Brzrkr #1, incase you missed it the first time around. 

If you’ve been enjoying TMNT Last Ronin, how about a Mikey greatest hits issue?

All the other best ofs are out of print so we ordered up on this one! $5.99.

We’ve got two new graphic novels coming out that will be added to our “Try Something New and Independent” section. 

We Only Find Them When They’re Dead by Immortal Hulk’s Al Ewing.

“Captain Malik and the crew of the spaceship the Vihaan II are in search of the only resources that matter – and can only be found by harvesting the giant corpses of alien gods that are found on the edge of human space.”

Rick Remender’s Scumbag is “The story of Ernie Ray Clementine – a profane, illiterate, drug-addicted biker with a fifth-grade education accidentally received a power-imbuing serum making him the world’s most powerful super spy. He is a relic of a bygone era, the living embodiment of sex, drugs, and rock and roll – so, this doesn’t make things easy for the spy organization that needs his help as they bribe, cajole, and manipulate him to choose between his own self-interests and doing what’s right.”

That’s it for this week!

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, March 17th, 2021!

Bendis takes over on Justice League, check out the new team full of classic heroes and new additions!

Tom Taylor begins his run on Nightwing with issue #78!

Tom’s usually know for his work on epic stories with lots of charcters, like Injustice and DCeased. It’s be fun to see his take on a solo character!

Superman Red and Blue is a new anthology told primarily in Clark’s signature colors!

With indie names like Jill Thompson, Wes Craig and Marguerite Bennett on board, this book has our attention. 

I’m really excited about the Captain America Anniversary Tribute One Shot, even with the $6.99 price point.

A bunch of artists redraw and modernize Cap’s origin from Captain America #1, as well as his Silver Age return in Avengers #4.

Look at the Mark Brooks cover. Take that Hitler! It is okay to punch a nazi.

The Black Knight gets a new five issue mini series to catch you up on the character’s history before the Eternals movie. 

This is a really cool cover priced Peach Momoko variant cover.

We’ve also got some indie comics and graphic novels coming out that will be added to our new featured small press section!

Ultramega #1 from Image Comics!

“A cosmic plague has spread, transforming everyday people into violent, monstrous kaiju. Only the Ultramega – three individuals imbued with incredible powers – hold the line against this madness. Their battles level cities and leave untold horror in their wake. Now, the final reckoning approaches for the Ultramega… but is this a war they can even win?”

Orphan and the Five Beasts #1, A brand-new kung-fu epic from James Stokoe! (who we can never get enough of!) Four issue mini series from Dark Horse!

Graphic Novel wise we’re spotlighting Stillwater by Chip Zdarsky and Ramon Perez!

“Nobody dies in the town of Stillwater, that’s not just a promise. It’s a threat.”

AWA and Pete Milligan present one of their $9.99 graphic novels with American Ronin!

“War is over, democracy an illusion, real power now lies not with nation-states but huge corporations engaged in a silent war for global domination. Their number one weapon: highly-skilled, technologically-enhanced operatives trained since childhood to pledge their allegiance to the corporate flag. But what happens when one such operative breaks free of his mental chains and decides to bring the whole system down?”

Finally, You Look LIke Death Tales From the Umbrella Academy features Klaus in a solo story!

We’ll keep these indie starting points stocked so you can Try Something New and Independant!

Thanks everyone! Be advised that Kamm’s Corners gets a little crazy on St. Pat’s as the day moves on, but the shop is pretty removed from it all. (Heck, stick around and grab yourself a beer!)

First up we’d like to thank everyone for a very successful Winston World. We did great, and we hope everyone got some really great deals on stuff.

Expect an entirely new back issue wall this week as we go back to our standard 25% discount!

Also look around the shop for a few new sections, like our “Try Something New and Independent” display, where we showcase indie books that are great entry level reads the staff personally loves. This includes both #1 issues and graphic novels. Also we’ve made a display of the top 60 DC graphic novels, which we also put together ourselves. Let us know if you think something is missing that should be there! (but keep in mind quite a few books that would have made our cut are out of print.) We are also slowly expanding our Manga selection by popular demand. (It’s a slow roll as books are really hard to find.)

Anyway, let’s get on to this week’s featured new releases!

MARVEL COMICS

Amazing Spider-Man #61 and #62 feature a brand new costume, designed by Dustin Weaver with help from Nick Spencer and editor Nick Lowe. (he used to be a Wedneday regular!)

Spidey’s using the costume to go up against the Kingpin and issue #61 comes out this week.

Spider-Man also gets a new ongoing with Non-Stop Spiderman #1.

As the name implies, this book is non stop action from page one, written by Joe Kelly and drawn by Chris Bachalo!

Deadpool’s hit his nerdy 30 in a new one shot full of creators through out all of his incarnations. 

Names like Joe Kelly, Skottie Young, Fabian Nicieza, Gail Simone, Daniel Way, Gerry Duggan and of course Rob Liefeld.

Welcome a brand new team of “sidekicks” in X-Men Children of the Atom #1. We expect this to be the same kind of hit as Strange Academy as we’re meeting a team of entirely new characters. 

It’s time to give another shout out to Immortal Hulk. Always a great time, this issue has the U-Foes (who I have a soft spot for), Sasquatch and Henry Peter Gyrich! (pictured on the cover, you either know him or you don’t from Avengers #181 and beyond.)

Seriously, jump on this book and go back and read everything. Ask anyone!

DC COMICS

DC’s Infinite Frontier continues with Joker #1 by James Tynion IV!

Jim Gordon is being paid to do the one thing Batman couldn’t, kill the Joker. I’ve read it and it’s really good. Punchline back up too!

Batman also gets a new anthology book with Batman Urban Legends #1.

Stories by the likes of Chip Zdarsky and Matt Rosenberg, featuring Red Hood, Harley, the Outsiders and Grifter.  

INDIE COMICS

This week’s big indie book is Proctor Valley Road from BOOM Studios and Grant Morrison!

“August, Rylee, Cora & Jennie have organized a “Spook Tour” with their classmates on the most haunted, demon-infested stretch of road in America to fund attending the concert of their dreams. When their visit turns deadly, these four friends race to rescue the missing students… before the town tears them limb from limb. Now they must slay the evils roaming Proctor Valley Road… along with the monsters lurking in the hearts of 1970s America.”

I love horror stuff set in the 70’s!

That’s it for this week! Thanks one more time for all the support!
