Hello, all--

Ok, so-- you know how MARVEL announced their new initiative titled LEGACY? You know, with all the  LENTICULAR COVERS that were going to shatter the Earth? As it turns out they’ve set up some near-impossible thresholds for retailers to qualify to order these covers. We are looking into our options and will do our best to get them, but I cannot guarantee it’ll happen and wanted to prepare you all for the potential heartache up front. It’s worth noting: DC let retailers order whatever quantities on the Batman & Flash lenticular cover issues for THE BUTTON storyline, and they were the best-selling titles of the month. Wouldn’t hurt for Marvel to pay attention to that.

UPDATE on our reorganization: it started! We’ve put in about the first third of the shelving Rawn has built to house our backstock, and they look amazing! Check it out:
BackIssues!.jpg

The goal is to be done by the end of the month. We’ll keep you posted!

LAST CALL! Subscribers! These are the debuting titles set to start in mid-September. Our order locks on them Monday, so please let us know ASAP if you’d like to add any to your list so we order enough!
HellboyOccult.jpg
HELLBOY & BPRD 1955 OCCULT INTELLIGENCE #1 (Dark Horse) Continuing the untold stories of Hellboy and his pals, this time with art from Shawn Martinbrough!

ducktales.jpg
DUCK TALES (IDW) After a hugely successful 0 issue, here comes the ongoing!

realm.jpg
REALM (Image) This one looks pretty good. 15 years after mythological creatures invaded and destroyed our world, humankind makes a play at fighting back.

retcon.jpg
RETCON (Image) ...and this one looks even better! Laying with the meta-tropes of reality being overwritten in comics, with art by the amazing Toby Cypress!

gencapM.jpg
GENERATIONS: CAPTAIN MARVEL (Marvel) Another one of these, with those characters!

MarvelLeg.jpg
MARVEL LEGACY (Marvel) The House of Ideas is letting it all ride on this one-- Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic reunite to introduce the Avengers of 1,000,000 BC and change everything you thought you knew about the Marvel Universe! Fingers crossed.

runaways.jpg
RUNAWAYS (Marvel) Long overdue! Getting the teen team back together, on the run from their evil parents! I hope it’s as good as the characters deserve!

killer.jpg
KILLER INSTINCT (Dynamite) Shadow lords and Night Guards and stuff like that.

sheena.jpg
SHEENA (Dynamite) Focus groups revealed that JUNGLE BOOBS, while an accurate title, was not necessarily one that would get much support.

wolfenstein.jpg
WOLFENSTEIN (Titan) Video game tie in!

rock.jpg
ROCKY & BULLWINKLE (American Mythology) I don’t know that the kids were clamoring for this, but with the right talent, could be fun!

Hello, all--

We’ve been talking about it for a few months, and over the next few weeks we’ll be implementing a pretty sweet REDESIGN of our space! We’re going to have all of our back issues streamlined and much easier to sift through! Some more bookshelves added in for good measure! Look for it to all change by the end of the month. Okay, not ALL, but a good chunk.

LAST CALL! These debuting titles are shipping in a few weeks. Let us know which ones you want so we order enough!
BatDawn.jpg
BATMAN: THE DAWNBREAKER (DC) Another sweet weird METAL tie-in. Guess who this evil Batman hybrid is based on. No, come on, guess!


Bombshells1.jpg
BOMBSHELLS UNITED (DC) If you’ve thought about getting into this plucky alt-reality version of the DCU but wanted a solid entry point, look no further! Written by homegrown Richmond talent Marguerite Bennett!

Dastardly.jpg
DASTARDLY & MUTTLEY (DC) Garth Ennis now throws his hat in the ring of the Hanna Barbera revamps. How can this not be great?

SamJack.jpg
SAMURAI JACK: QUANTUM JACK (IDW) These comic adaptations of this cartoon as usually pretty on point.

SWAdv.jpg
STAR WARS ADVENTURES (IDW) I don’t know why Marvel’s not doing these, either. But this all-ages SW comic looks great!

IMAGEP.jpg
IMAGE PLUS: WYTCHES (Image) The sequel to Scott Snyder’s megahit WYTCHES is going to be serialized in this Image preview book. And it’s cheap!

kingsm.jpg
KINGSMAN: RED DIAMOND (Image) Just in time for the new movie, a sequel to Millar’s highly regarded Secret Service comic!

SCALES.jpg
SCALES & SCOUNDRELS (Image) I feel like this is referencing something, but I can’t quite pinpoint it…

gen iron.jpg
GENERATIONS: IRON MAN & IRON HEART (Marvel) We’ll be pulling these for Invincible Iron Man subs... if anyone else wants, sound off!

capPhas.jpg
JOURNEY TO STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI: CAPTAIN PHASMA (Marvel) Bridging the gap between movies! I think this’ll be important and good.

venomv.jpg
VENOMVERSE (Marvel) How many Venoms is too many Venoms? FIND OUT HERE! In all seriousness, this looks fun…

venomvwar.jpg
VENOMVERSE: WAR STORIES (Marvel) ...but THIS is overkill and indicative of the bad decisions Marvel keeps making. We’ll be ordering very very tightly on this one, you gotta tell us if you want it.

actionv.jpg
ACTIONVERSE ONGOING: STRAY (Action Lab) That name is kind of a mouthful, ain’t it? But that’s a sweet cover.

lazaretto.jpg
LAZARETTO (Boom!) Hometown hero CLAY MCLEOD CHAPMAN (Edge of Venomverse) has a new book! And I can’t high concept it better than they did: After a pandemic strikes, a dorm complex at a small American college is quarantined with all of the students trapped within. What first starts out as youthful freedom from authority soon devolves into a violent new society-it's Lord of the Flies on a college campus.

fruitn.jpg
FRUIT NINJA (D.E.) For the kids!

MadeMen.jpg
MADE MEN (Oni Press) A clever-looking riff on Frankenstein!

evilw.jpg
EVIL WITHIN (Titan) Video game tie-in!
