Hello, all--

First a quick word on the pricing of last week’s Amazing Spider-Man #25. Marvel has been periodically putting out $10 single issues; not only have I heard your displeasure, I agree. It sucks, and it’s alienating. My advice to anyone who objects to this practice-- take 5 minutes and e-mail Marvel! They need to know fans are not just going to blindly cough up whatever amount of dollars they arbitrarily decide to slap on a given issue. There should be email addresses to editors either on a letter’s page or in the back of the book. I’m gonna email them too.

Thanks to all who made it out to our LADIES’ NIGHT release party for Megan James’ Innsmouth #2! It was a frenetic, fun night! If you weren’t able to make it, Brooke Allen signed all of our Lumberjanes TPs and we have ‘em out for sale! Ain’t she the coolest?!?

LAST CALL!
ROSE (Image) High fantasy ongoing from writer Meredith Finch and artist Ig Guara, who is so good he deserves a big hit comic.

BLACK PANTHER: THE CREW (Marvel)  Ta-Nehisi Coates is bringing together T’Challa, Storm, Misty Knight, Luke Cage and more for a rough and tumble street level team book!
BlPanCrew1.jpg
DEADPOOL VS PUNISHER (Marvel) If you’re not sick of these characters popping up in as many books a week as they do, you might enjoy this mini!
DeadpoolPun1.jpg
WEAPON X (Marvel) A gaggle of Marvel’s stabbiest mutants come together to fight anti-mutant humans, Written by Greg Pak, who is excellent! And drawn by Greg Land, whose name is also Greg!
WeaponX1.jpg
X-MEN BLUE (Marvel) The time-displaced teenage X-Men fall under the guiding hand of their worst enemy! Not acne-- MAGNETO!
XMenBlue1.jpg
GODSHAPER (Boom!) Simon Spurrier is one of the great writers in comics who hasn’t popped up into the A-List yet. Maybe this’ll change that-- a story where there’s a God for every person on Earth except the Godshapers-- godless social pariahs that have the ability to shape other people’s gods (as the name suggests lolz). Looks weird and cool!
Godshaper1.jpg
GREATEST ADVENTURE (Dynamite) The greatest heroes from the worlds of Edgar Rice Burroughs come together, in a book written by Fables’ Bill Willingham!
GreatestA1.jpg
Z NATION (Dynamite) This ties into a tv show? About zombies? I’ve never heard of it. Any good?
znATION1.jpg
IMMORTAL BROTHERS: GREEN KNIGHT (Valiant) More time-traipsing high adventure from the kooks at Valiant! Starring Archer & Armstrong, the Eternal Warrior, and Ivar the Timewalker!

Hello, all--

Did you see the reveal of the new Astonishing X-Men book this week? Inner 13 year-olds all across the land stopped burning ants with a magnifying glass for a second and grunted approvingly. It’s shipping in July… look at this:
Astonishing_X-Men_1_Cover.jpg

REMINDER:  LADIES NIGHT @ Velocity is coming up this week-- on Friday, March 17 6-9PM to celebrate the release of MEGAN JAMES’ Innsmouth #2! We’ll have newly printed #1s back in stock as well, will be running sales, and will have a few special guests to help us party!
*BROOKE ALLEN (Lumberjanes, A Home for Mr. Easter)
*CHRISTINE SKELLY (Mt. Olyphant, Flaunt Your Fluff)
*ELLIE GILL (Dream Maker Zine, prints)
Plan to attend, as it will be righteous!

LAST CALL! Subscribers, tell us if you want any of these April 5th debuting titles, so we order enough to go around! Your communication directly helps us gauge interest, the earlier the better!

REVOLUTION AW YEAH (IDW) What happens when you take all the Hasbro-owned properties (GI Joe, Transformers, etc) and put them through the cute grinder.
AWYEAH.jpg
BLACK CLOUD (Image) Like Monstress, Black Monday Murders, God Country, Curse Words and more, this one has a ton of heat on it and will sell out. If you want a 1st printing, seriously, you gotta tell me. Jason Latour (Spider-Gwen) writes and the amazing Greg Hinkle (Airboy) draws this sci-fi reality bender.
bLACKcLOUD.jpg
ROCK CANDY MOUNTAIN (Image) The world’s toughest hobo is on the search for the mythical Candy Rock Mountain, and has to beat up a lot of other hobos to get there. From the maker of Sexcastle!
rOCKc.jpg
ROYALS (Marvel) I’ve been very excited about this. Al Ewing teams with artist Jonboy Meyers to chronicle the lives of the Inhumans Royal Family while they travel to space in search for new Terrigen! Soundtrack by Lorde.
ROYALS.jpg
STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE (Marvel) Adapting the best Star Wars movie ever! Look, I don’t want to fight about it, just accept it. It’s better than Star Wars. I’ll concede tied with Empire.
ROGUE.jpg
X-MEN GOLD (Marvel) Kitty Pryde! Storm! Colossus! Nightcrawler! Rachel Summers! Old Man Logan! Together again for the first time.
XMENGOLD.jpg
ELEANOR & THE EGRET (Aftershock) John Layman (Chew) teams up with Sam Keith (The Maxx)?!? This’ll be weird.
ELEANOR.jpg
RIVERDALE (Archie) Man, this show is good. And I don’t mean that ironically. Will the comic be any good? I dunno, but I’ll give it a look!
RIVERDALE.jpg
AMORY WARS GOOD APOLLO (Boom!) Claudio Sanchez of Coheed & Cambria brings back his beloved comic!
AMORYW.jpg
KIM REAPER (Oni) A teenage part-time harvester of newly dead souls.
