Happy New Comics Wednesday 4/2/14 - Moon Knight / Manapul Detective Comics / Harrison Wood Artist Spotlight edition!
Warren Ellis' second issue of Moon Knight is just as charming as the first issue - great stuff, so good to finally have a good Moon Knight comic! The creative team of the New 52 Flash as moved on to Detective Comics and while I'm sad to see them leave Flash, their first issue of Detective is REALLY good! Ultimate Spider-Man #200 (shown here with both covers) is a Ultimate universe celebration of Peter Parker and is one of Bendis' strongest writing in some time - great character moments! While I haven't read the new Aquaman comic pictured above yet, it's supposed to set up DC's Future's end upcoming BIG comic that will introduce Batman Beyond into the DC universe!

Sandman Overture #2 - SOOOOO worth the wait - I think everyone will agree! I want to weep with joy with how beautiful this cover is! Miracleman #4 - more Moore styled advancement of where this realistic approach to a Captain Marvel / Shazam character is going - there's enough ideas in this issue for five "normal" comics! Deadly Class gets really dark and rockets up to being one of the comics I most look forward to! Third issue of Serenity post the television and movie, this is a great way to get a fix of where these characters are! The new Ghost Rider REALLY surprised me - I wasn't too keen when I heard that this was an entirely new character and that he has a car, not a motorcycle, but this was really kinetic and makes me want the next issue right now - great art too! Allred and Slott's Silver Surfer was great fun, with great art, definitely will be another hit for the new Marvel Now!
How great was Ms. Marvel last week!? Right now my favorite new Marvel titles are: Moon Knight, Loki, Ms. Marvel, Daredevil, Silver Surfer, and Ghost Rider! Hope you all are digging some of the new titles out there!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 3/5/14 - waffle / Lisa Dittrich's zombie art opening reception & too many great comics edition!!
Today is a HUGE day in many different ways at Alternate Reality Comics! Beside the numerous (and I mean NUMEROUS!) great new comics out today (some of which are in the photos below, including a great SAD issue of Afterlife With Archie, a great first issue of Moon Knight by Warren Ellis), and what's happening to Nightwing in Forever Evil!?), tonight we have the opening reception (5-8pm) of local artist, Lisa Dittrich's zombie art at our Artist Spotlight! We've had a LOT of great artists at our Artist Spotlight over the years, but wait until you see Lisa's zombies (including a hipster zombie and an Abe Lincoln zombie, one of them is in the last photo here)! Lisa is also a great supporter / help to many local artists here in Vegas (she helps out at Blackbird Studios), so I hope everyone comes out and gives her the love she gives so much of! And in conjunction with tonights event...
...we are having Lisa Dittrich's Artist Spotlight opening reception catered by TIABI Coffee & Waffle House, a new great local waffle restaurant close to my store and besides waffle treats, they also make other deserts (and many of their waffles and treats are also vegan)! These yum samplings as well as wine and other beverages will be complimentary during the opening reception tonight from 5-8pm! So I hope to see a lot of Alternate Reality Comics' friends tonight picking up some great new comics and giving lots of ego strokes to Lisa Dittrich, while visiting with other art / zombie lovers and enjoying some TIABI Coffee & Waffle treats! This is our first zombie art show and we couldn't be happier that Lisa Dittrich is the person doing this!
