Happy New Comics Edition - 9/3/14; BIG BIG day, DC 3Ds, last issue of Original Sin, first Death of Wolverine, & Damon Von Bohn's Artist Spotlight Opening Reception tonight!!

 Details about our September Artist Spotlight Opening Reception after the New Comics Wednesday teases!

Original Sin concludes - I liked it! Death of Wolverine starts! Okay, I know that everyone reading this is saying, "Yeah, right, Wolverine is going to die, for what, ten minutes!?" Death is like a bad cold in comics, just about all of the characters get over it. We know that Marvel can't really keep Wolvie dead, just like DC could keep Supes dead, but there is speculation that Marvel isn't as enthused about characters (such as Wolvie and the X-Men) that they don't have in their movie studio (Disney). Anyway, at the end of day, Marvel still makes money on Wolverine comics, but on a comics news site, it was reported that he'd be dead until at least 2016. However long Wolvie stays dead, this mini series should be good as it's by writer, Charles Soule (She Hulk), and artist Steve McNiven (Old Man Logan, Civil War)! The multiple post Death of Wolverine comics I'm very suspicious of though (and think there's too many).
 Ten DC holographic / lenticular 3D comics this week! They have the Future's End banner above their logos, but it's my understanding that you don't have to read those to read these September one shots. So while I haven't read any of these yet, the covers are fun eye candy, right!?
Names #1 is a new Vertigo title by Peter Milligan and Landro Fermadez and it was a REALLY STRONG debut! It's about a woman whose husband died, by suicide some people are trying to convince her was the way, but she knows that wasn't something he'd do (and she gets proof in a video her husband had sent to her in the event of his death), so she sets out to revenge his death. Money back guarantee first issue!! Southern Bastards #4 concludes the first story arc and this is next on my reading stack - love this title! I'm also loving Peter David's return to Spider-Man 2099! Brian Wood takes over the writing on Moon Knight, he's got big Ellis shoes to fill! Miracleman #10 is the conclusion of the second book of Alan Moore's Miracleman - next issue we have his concluding third act, Olympus, with FANTASTIC artist, John Totleben, and as good as Miracleman has been, wait until you read and look at Olympus!

Damon Von Bohn's Artist Spotlight Opening Reception tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 3rd 
from 5-8pm)!:



We're really excited to have local Vegas artist Damon Von Bohn as our September Artist Spotlight. I've known Damon for years and had seen some of Damon's art, but it's only been fairly recently that I became aware of Damon's enormous artistic prowess! We can't wait to share this art with the Vegas art loving community! We'll have our customary complimentary soft drinks, wine, and snacks for you to enjoy while you visit with Damon Von Bohn and enjoy this wicked keen art!
