Happy New Comics Wednesday 2/11/15 - Darth Vader, Walking Dead, Spider-Verse, Thor edition!

 Marvel is taking their whole return to publishing Star Wars comics pretty seriously! This week's Darth Vader #1, by Keiron Gillen and Salvador Larroca is page after page of pure excitement! This week's Walking dead issue is a special Valentine's day issue (grin)! If you've never read Darwyn Cooke's excellent New Frontier (shame on you - grin), well DC just released this gorgeous hardcover volume collecting the entire series (which used to be done as two trade paperbacks) with LOTS of extras - highest possible recommendation!
 Second chapter of Black Vortex, new Thor! The mystery title that has been affected by light glare is Amazing Spider-Man #14, the final chapter of the crazy good Spider-Verse storyline!
The return of Chaykin's Satellite Sam, Velvet, and the first Ellis Trees trade paperback! Southern Bastards is out too, as well as Astro City and Winter Soldier!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 2/4/15 - Nameless, Wytches, Saga, Ant-Man, Superman, Star Wars #2, all the GREAT comics edition!! Artist Spotlight Opening Reception on Thursday 5-8pm!

 SO many great comics today!! BIG issue of Avengers! Grant Morrison & Chris Burnham's Nameless is about as fantastic as a great comic gets (if you miss the art of Frank Quitely, Burnham's style evokes his!)!

Couple of big new developments in this week's Superman!

And I hope a lot of you can make it for Thursday's Artist Spotlight Opening reception!:

 Our first Artist Spotlight of 2015 is local artist, Ashleigh Popplewell, with her Opening Reception being on Thursday, February 5th from 5-8pm! Ashleigh has worked as a sketch card artist for IDW Publishing, Upper Deck, and Cryptozoic Entertainment! Ashleigh is generously donating 50% of her print sales during her February Artist Spotlight to the Three Square Food Bank, & we're donating a portion of our back issue sales from Jan & Feb. to this fantastic local charitable organization (you could also bring non perishable food items through February 26th & we'll take all of those items to Three Square at the end of Feb.). We'll have free snacks, wine, and other beverages while you visit with Ashleigh and fellow local art supporters!
