So today, Dec. 24th and next Tuesday are the rarest of days, the day when New Comic Wednesday becomes New Comic Tuesday and it's totally legal! There's only a handful of titles out today, but not having read them yet, let's hope it's a case of quality over quantity (grin)! It seems like we've been waiting a couple of extra weeks for the newest chapter of Forever Evil, this wait is DC's gift to us. And what is Origin II? In the first Origin years ago, we learned Wolverine's first name, which one of his names are we going to find out this time around (grin)!?

Donuts, FREE Ronald's Donuts, that's reason enough right there to come say hi, right? So what are the sales this sign is talking about!? One dollar and two dollar back issues are half off, and all other back issues are 20% off! Variant (excluding todays) are also half off! And our ten dollar graphic novels are buy three for $25.00!!

And I'll have some exciting news about this title and its creator, Larime Taylor very shortly, so stay tuned here and on the Alternate Reality Comics facebook page!

Did I mention that there's a LOT of comics this week!? Well there are, as publishers rush to get them out before the year closes, including a new Image title called The Saviors written by James Robinson and a new title called Harley Quinn, whatever that is (grin)!
In addition to all the new comic periodicals we got in this week, Alternate Reality Comics' 20% off sale on graphic novels / trade paperbacks is continuing until Dec. 31st, so I'm thinking …
