Wow! It’s about to be another great week at the comic book shop with some spectacular new releases!

Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, September 4th, 2019!

Spawn 300

First up is Spawn #300, setting the record for the longest-running independent comic in history!

Oversized $7.99 issue, lots of covers to choose from, with interior art by Greg Capullo, J Scott Campbell and Todd MacFarlane himself! Scott Snyder even has a few words in there!

Come early on Wednesday to get your copy, because they will go fast and our distributor is out of stock!

Marvel Comics

House of X #4 is here, but the really big news is we have big stacks of the third prints of both House and Powers of X #1!

Mark your calendar for Thursday, October 10th! These books have been so fun to talk about that we’ll be hosting a book club to talk about it from 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm the day after the final issue of Powers of X #6 comes out. 

This will be a spoiler full zone so do your due diligence and catch up before-hand. We’ll have help with this endeavor from Valentino Zullo, who’s well versed in making these things go off without a hitch.

Oh yeah! We also have more first prints of Marvel Comics #1000 and Absolute Carnage #2 coming in, as we sold out of both last week. 

DC Comics

Everybody’s already reading it, but the new issue of Doomsday Clock is out and it’s fantastic.

The Legion of Super-heroes returns in a two0part mini-series by Brian Bendis. This book will help to connect all of DC’s future timelines to the present. 

There’s even a little Jim Lee art in there!

Harley and Ivy get a new six-issue mini-series that’s a romp through the DCU while also exploring the nature of their relationship after Heroes in Crisis.

DCeased A Good Day to Die one-shot features the zombie hunting dream team of Mister Miracle, Big Barda, Blue Beetle, Booster Gold, and John Constantine!

Gabby Rivera

Lastly, we’ll be providing some support to the Gabby Rivera lecture going on at the downtown branch of the Cleveland Public Library this Saturday at 2 pm. 

Gabby writes AMERICA for Marvel but her lecture will be about all kinds of things. Here’s one of her TED Talks that I thought was pretty great. 

We’ll be down there handing out FREE (you know how we roll) copies of America so you can get something signed after the lecture.

We are proud to be supporting Gabby during her visit to Cleveland!

That’s all folks! See you this week at the shop!

This is a huge week, but by far the biggest stand out is the epic Marvel Comics #1000!

One huge $9.99 perfect bound book with an incredible list of creators!

I had a chance to read this book last month and I’m a big fan. Every page is a quick vignette representing a different year in Marvel’s history, starting with the first panel of Marvel Comics #1. The core backstory was written by Al Ewing of Immortal Hulk.

It’s not going to be for everyone but I really enjoyed the format and the history involved. 

Here’s Marvel’s promo video, as this book made a big splash at D23 last week. 

We have a lot of covers coming in so come in early on Wednesday to pick yours out! Here’s a gallery of covers as they’re all really fun to look at!

Absolute Carnage continues with it’s second issue by Donny Cates. Such a great modern tribute to the 90’s.

We have enough books to fill pre orders as well as some copies hitting the table!

We also finally have pre-orders filled for House of X #3! Here’s the super cool Flower Variant.

Get those plants growing for our contest! We still have a handful of seed packets left! $100 gift card! You still have six weeks! Get on it!

Over at DC, The Batman Who Laughs series spills over into the new Batman Superman #1!

It will take both heroes to tackle what’s to come from the Year of the Villains!

DC also has two new original graphic novels, Harley Quinn Breaking Glass from DC INK and Superman of Smallville from DC ZOOM.

Steve Pugh put a ton of labor into the artwork on this one. Here’s a great trailer:

Superman of Smallville is a GREAT book for beginning readers! I run all this stuff past my daughter and this was a big hit. 

There’s also LOTS of other stuff coming in, so look forward to a great (HUGE) week!

It’s a short and simple week at the comic shop! Here’s the featured new releases coming out this Wednesday, August 21st, 2019!

DC Titles

Frank Miller and John Romita Jr have been crafting a new origin for Superman in DC’s adult “Black Label” line. Issue #2 (of 3) comes out this week. 

This chapter follows Clark though a coming of age story set in Atlantis, which likely means Lori Lemaris.

A lot of readers tapped out of Tom King’s Batman run after the wedding scam fiasco, but it seems like everyone’s back for his final arc, “City of Bane”.

Batman #85 will be his final issue on the book, closing it out 15 issues earlier than planned. 

Marvel Titles

Spider-Gwen will be joining the proper Marvel Universe with Ghost Spider #1.

We still only have enough copies of Powers of X #3 to cover preorders. We will be ordering heavily on reprints though, so don’t give up hope just yet. This book is well worth the wait and fun to read as a periodical. We’ll have our orders under control for issue #4. (This is what happens with a weekly series.)

Another book that’s caught everyone off guard is Absolute Carnage. We do have first prints of issue #1 back in stock at cover price, so hop on board at ground level. This week’s Deadpool vs Carnage is also sold out before it hit the table, but if you’ve got a preorder in, we’ve got you covered.

(If it seems like we’ve laying on the preorder thing heavily, it’s because we want everyone to get the books they want. Just ask at the counter to set up a file. You save 10% off all your new comic purchases!)

The third and final volume of Ed Piskor’s Grand Design is out, and it’s must reading for any X-Men fan. 

Piskor wrote Hip Hop Family Tree and used those skills to craft an ongoing narrative of X-History!

Image Title

Lastly, we can’t say enough about Image’s Criminal.

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips are the perfect crime noir team. In addition to graphic novels like “My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies” and “Bad Weekend”, you can tune into the monthly comic for a regular dose of their work. 

That’s all for this week. We know it’s early but mark your calendar for Halloween Comic Fest on Saturday, October 26th, All the comic that will be available for free can now be seen here!
