Happy New Comics Wednesday - a new Warren Ellis title - Trees! Mark Waid's Dr. Spektor! Last issue of Nightwing!

Image
Trees is an alien invasion story by Warren Ellis, published by Image, and it's another Ellis great first issue! When I first heard that Josh Howard was the artist for this title, I thought this would be a misfit, but color me red, as the art is fantastic! Another interesting first issue out today is Dr. Spektor, by Mark Waid, this could be a title to watch! Deadly Class and Southern Bastards have new issues out and that's always cause for celebration! The Sandman Overture on the top right here in this photo is the directors cut version, meaning you'll get to see all the behind the scenes aspects of Sandman Overture #1 (and don't you just love that cover!?)!
MS. Marvel - a BIG favorite around these parts! And two James Robinson written comics in one week - All New Invaders and a BIG issue of Fantastic Four!
Everyone knows this is the last issue of Nightwing, right and that you read it right after last week's Forever Evil (of which we still have copies)!? I'm he…

Happy New Comics Wednesday - the publishers thought this was All Of The Comics Release Day!!

Image
Yes, all of the comics that are being published by all of the publishers came out today (well I'm exaggerating a little) as you can see from these four photos (and that's not even all of them!)! And so many of them are BIG titles!
Sadly, the only one I've read so far is Original Sin #2 (as you can see we still have some copies of Original Sin #1 left for the handful of people who didn't get the first issue a couple of weeks ago) - it's as great as the first issue was!
Many of you may have seen that the creative teams and many more of DC's 3D Septembers covers are online as of this past Friday. This yellow sheet is the sign up for these September titles, so don't let what happened last September happen again. We'll point you in the right direction of where to see these covers and the creative teams when you stop by Alternate Reality Comics today or in the next few days. Orders for these titles are due next Wednesday, May 28th!

More comics! Which ones ar…

Happy New Comics Wednesday - Afterlife With Archie, Walking Dead, This One Summer, Andre The Giant! And an important note about DC's September comics!

Image
There is so much greatness on this display above! A great ending to the first arc of Afterlife With Archie! Double-sized Walking Dead for the same low price as always! This issue features a new direction for this series and I think it recharges this title really nicely! This One Summer is my favorite graphic novel this year thus far! A wonderful coming of age story about two girls who meet every summer, the art is full of great leisurely moments, lots of space and motion, just a great book all around!Andre The Giant - you've probably not seen this side of this wrestler!
I can't believe how much I'm enjoying Nightcrawler! This is Chris Claremont and artist Todd Nauck having a fun time, there's even three new "villains" with cool German names! I haven't read Deadly Hands of Kung Fu yet, truthfully I'm a little worried because there's no way that it can be as good as Doug Moench's Shang Chi and all of the great artists he had working with him b…

Happy New Comics Wednesday - Original Sin #1 ALL DAY FREE Ronald's DONUTS!, Miracleman, Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #1, & so much more!!

Image
I'm going to largely let these three photos speak for themselves, because I still have to read most of these gems as I was busy with bringing the store back up to speed from an AWESOME Free Comic Book day 2014! Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday, you're the most important ingredient that made the day everyone it was!
You'll notice that Original Sin #1 is in all three of these photos - yes, it's that good!! In addition to FREE Ronald's Donuts today, we also have Skottie Young lithos and rubbery eyeballs! Not pictured in these three photos until I noticed its absence and put it on the front rack is the first issue of Future's End, which I'm looking forward to reading as I enjoyed the #0 issue! Loki's also out today as well as Swamp Thing, Punisher, Alex + Ada, Fairest, Caliban, Teen Titans Annual, Black Widow, Earth 2, and the second issue of Dead Letters (we got in the second print of the first issue today too)!
