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!

While not a huge new comic week, this has to be the most interesting selection in 2021 so far!

But first let’s talk about Winston World!

Winston World has always been our three day sale to coincide with Wizard World downtown. We even ripped of their art style to hijack their social media presence. Well just because the circus isn’t coming to town doesn’t mean we can’t have a sale. 

From Friday March 5th to Sunday March 7th we’ll have:

  • 50% off ALL Back Issues!
  • 10% off EVERYTHING else in the shop! (we do mean everything.)

We’re not allowed to use the foyer during tax season but we’ll fill our counter space with as many $1.00 boxes as possible, 50 cents each for $1.00 or more. We’ll also keep refilling those dollar boxes all weekend! 

Oh yeah! Winston ironically even made it into Cleveland.com this week too! 

So on to that really interesting new comic book week!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021!

MARVEL COMICS

The big book this week is super hot cover artist Peach Momoko’s first full length book from Marvel, Demon Days X-Men #1. 

A reimagining of the Marvel Universe with Psylocke and Venom up front! This will be a quarterly five issue mini series, to give her ample time to complete her work.

WandaVision has been a treat, so here’s a chance to get one of the last Alex Ross Timeles variants on Avengers #43. Yup, it’s the Vision and only cover price at $3.99!

We can’t keep Star Wars High Republic books in stock, and this week we’ve got two new one’s hitting the table. (well, actually three.)

Star Wars High Republic #3 and High Repubic Adventures #2 are brand new, and Star Wars High Republic #2 gets a 2nd print. 

DC COMICS

DC Future State is over, and we’re now into Infinite Frontier, starting with a $5.99 one shot that will lead into everything that’s to come. 

The boys read it, really liked it, so we upped out orders at the last minute. 

We’ve got three new #1’s from DC this week, Suicide Squad, Swamp Thing and Crime Syndicate. 

Peachmaker’s leading the Squad now, and they’re heading into Arkham Asylum to recruit Talon from Court of Owls. 

Swamp Thing #1 is the first of a ten issue mini series by the same writer as the Future State book, Ram V. 

Earth 3 has been reborn and with it the new Crime Syndicate is here. (you know, the world where the Justice League is evil.)

INDIE COMICS

It’s a big week for indie books as well, with BOOM’s BRZRKR #1 leading the pack. Yup, this is the much asked about book written by Keanu Reeves and Matt Kindt. 

This is going to be a big one, as preorders here were huge. 

Image has a new #1 as well, Nocterra by the hit team of Scott Snyder and Tony Daniel. 

“Ten years after the world is plunged into an everlasting night that turns all living creatures into monstrous shades, the only way to survive is to stay close to artificial light. Enter Valentina “Val” Riggs, a skilled ferryman who transports people and goods along deadly unlit roads with her heavily illuminated eighteen wheeler.” Yes!

We’ve got the new “Boys” collection from Garth Ennis! Set 12 years after the events of the original series, “Dear Becky” is the first new graphic novel since the show has come out. 

Here’s an under the radar staff pick from ONI Comics, Jonna and the Unpossible Monsters #1, written and drawn by shop favorite Chris Samnee. (his wife co wrote it as well.)

“Rainbow has been searching for her sister, Jonna, for a year. The last time she saw Jonna was also the first time she saw one of the monsters that now roam the planet. They’re big, ugly, and dangerous creatures, driving humanity to the brink of extinction. Though there isn’t much hope for survival out in the wild, Rainbow knows that her sister is out there somewhere-and she’ll do anything to find her.”

Whew! Alright, that’s it for this week! Get your lists together for Winston World and we’ll see you this week at the shop!

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

Marvel Comics

Marvel made another “Voices” one shot for Black History Month, with stories featuring Black Panther, Storm, Blade, Falcon, Ironheart, Luke Cage and Spectrum!

Here’s a cool video I dug up about the project:

We’ve got some cool indie books this week, like Stray Dogs #1, a very Disney Animation adn Don Bluth inspired project. 

I wasn’t sure how to order this book, billed as Lady and the Tramp meets Silence of the Lambs, but it looks really cool. 

Here’s another video!

With Walking Dead over and Saga on hold, Crossover by Donny Cates is our best selling indie title!

It’s the comic book about collecting comic books! Super fun if you’re not already reading it, we’ve got issues #1-3 in stock as well. 

Looking for a new graphic novel? Try James Tynion IV’s (Something is Killing the Children) Department of Truth. 

What if every conspiracy you’ve ever heard was true? Issues #1-5 for only $9.99 and issue #6 comes out this week as well!

DC Comics

This is DC’s last week for Future State books, and last week’s Superman Worlds of War #2 was one of our favorite issues. That leads into this weeks Superman House of El One Shot, which is also the first appearance of the Red King. 

Every so often the world of superhero movies blows my mind, and that’s happening with the Peacemaker, set to be in the new Suicde Squad movie as well as his own HBO Max series. 

“The man who loves peace so much he’s willing to kill for it.” These were some of the first comics I ever read from Charlton in the mid 70’s. 

Well, you get to see a little Peacemaker in this week’s Suicide Squad #2.

We’ve got the follow up issue to the previous Generations One Shot, this time called Generations Forged.

An unlikely team of 1939 Batman, Kamandi, Superboy, Steel, Starfire, Sinestro, Booster Gold, and Dr. Light.

The stories in Batman Black and White have been stellar, and this issue looks to be no exception.

Ironically featuring a story by John Ridley and Olivier Coipel, who are also doing a story together in the above mentioned Marvel Voices Legacy One Shot. ( I don’t know if this is the first time something like this has happened but it’s worth taking note of.)

Winston World

We’re also happy to annouce that we don’t need Wizard World to have Winston World this year! Our yearly sale to coincide with the convention that will not be happening is still going to happen. 

From Friday March 5th to Sunday March 7th we’ll have:

  • 50% off all back issues
  • 10% off everything else in the shop

I’ll also fill as much of the counter space as I can with $1.00 stock, and I will sell them for 50 cent each for 100 or more! (I will also keep refilling anything that we sell all weekend.)

Thanks everyone! We look forward to seeing you in the shop!
