Hello, all--

I’m back from my travels through the deserts, canyons and mountains of Arizona! I’d like to give a shout out to Rawn real quick-like-- thanks for holding down the fort and rocking out the newsletter last week, the seamlessness with which things ran gives me confidence I can split outta town, like, all the time now! If anyone knows of anywhere as or more beautiful than Arizona, let me know!

We’re going to implement something starting TODAY that I’ve wanted to do for years: if you’re a subscriber at the shop, you get 25% OFF on your birthday! It’s like a storewide sale just for you. Just a little perk to show our appreciation for your support of our shop. We wouldn’t be here if not for you.

OMG, have you seen Stranger Things’ David Harbour in his HELLBOY makeup and gear for the upcoming movie? Holy moly, he looks perfect:

BATMAN DAY is next Saturday, September 23rd! We’ll have some free giveaways! And it’s also Harley Quinn’s 25th anniversary, so she’ll be represented as well. Maybe we’ll even run a sale, who knows? We will decide well beforehand and communicate through our online channels.

LAST CALL! Here are the debuting titles set to ship in a few weeks for which our orders lock on Monday. Subscribers-- help us order correctly  by telling us which titles you’d like to add to your list! ‘The Realm’, released this week, is a great example of a book everyone wanted but no one told us, so we were sold out by Thursday.  

SherlockF.jpg
SHERLOCK FRANKENSTEIN & THE LEGION OF EVIL (Dark Horse) A tie-in for one of the best books out today, Black Hammer! With art by the amazing David Rubin!

BatmanLost.jpg
BATMAN LOST (DC) Trapped in the Dark Multiverse, Batman must face his darkest fears!

GothamGarage.jpg
GOTHAM CITY GARAGE (DC) An alt-view of the DCU, more street level and full of motorcycles.

ragman.jpg

RAGMAN (DC) DC’s got so many below-the-radar cool characters. If you don’t know much about Ragman, check him out here!

WildCray.jpg
WILDSTORM: MICHAEL CRAY (DC) Spinning out of Warren Ellis’ revisionary hit series! I really hope the man AKA Deathblow, when he enters a room, says, “Things are about to get CRAY up in here.” #dadjokes #puns4life

wormwood.jpg
WORMWOOD GOES TO WASHINGTON (IDW) Ben Templesmith’s great character finally returns! If you like Hellboy, The Goon, or a sentient alien worm animating a corpse, this is the book for you!

familyt.jpg
THE FAMILY TRADE (Image) Justin Jordan has created some great books for Image-- Luther Strode and The Spread to name a couple-- about a civil war on a world just a lil’ different from ours.

godc.jpg
GOD COMPLEX (Image) Paul Jenkins’ new sci fi series!  

FALCON.jpg
FALCON (Marvel) Sam Wilson’s back in his best role, and he’s taking no junk from anyone. Thumbs up on the costume redesign!

rugrats.jpg
RUGRATS (Boom!) My kids were at just the right age for this, so I’ve seen A LOT of Rugrats. Maybe all of it a few times over. Will it succeed as a comic, this long after the fact? I dunno, you tell me.

dandare.jpg
DAN DARE (Titan) It’s Peter Milligan’s turn! I think every great writer from the UK is required to do a stint on this legendary sci-fi property.
