We are mere days away from our next signing party-- on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 from we will be hosting Sink/Swim creator MEGAN JAMES for the highly anticipated launch of INNSMOUTH! This is one of the best, most fully realized debuts I’ve ever read from a first-timer, blending Lovecraftian horror with humor and gender equality-- this one’s a total keeper and this Richmond debut printing will sell out quickly. Come by!
...and just a few hours later, all day long-- it’s BATMAN DAY! Celebrate the Dark Knight in ways in which he’d never approve on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17TH. We’ll be having a targeted sale-- everything that has Batman in it will be 25% OFF, just for the day! Additionally, DC has printed up a special promotional giveaway printing of BATMAN REBIRTH #1!
Did you know we sell a lot of back issues and cool things on EBAY? We do, it’s true! If you would like to peruse our always-updating selections, we offer a local pickup option (if you’re local) and these treasures could be waiting for you the next time you pop by! Our username is velocitycomicsrva, take a look!
LAST CALL! These are the debuting titles scheduled to come out on , and the best way to guarantee you get any of them is to tell us NOW if you want ‘em! Our orders lock on these Monday night and we might not be able to get more if we sell out. You wanna roll the dice on waiting, go for it. This list is HUGE because it’s right before New York Comic Con when all the publishers wanna debut a bunch of stuff!
DEATH OF HAWKMAN (DC) Formerly called ‘Hawkman & Adam Strange’, I think this one just got a lil’ more important.
HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS (DC) You already know if you want this. Now let me know!
MIDNIGHTER & APOLLO (DC) Rising star writer Steve Orlando returns to the character he started making his name on in this sequel to his great Midnighter solo run.
SHADE THE CHANGING GIRL (DC/Young Animal) By the end of the year it’s highly possible that DC’s Young Animal imprint will be the best thing going. This is the 3rd release, a variation on theme (and gender) by Cecil Castellucci and Marley Zarcone.
CANNIBAL (Image) A cannibal epidemic sweeps a small town in the Everglades-- looks very promising.
GREEN VALLEY (Image) Nerd Elite Guard member Max Landis does his first creator-owned Image book! It’s a high fantasy action romp!
MOONSHINE (Image) Azzarello. Risso. Mountain folk. Crime.
ROMULUS (Image) New lady action hero!
CAGE (Marvel) The decade-in-the-making Genndy Tartakovsky mini is finally here, and virtually guaranteed to be excellent!
DEADPOOL: BACK IN BLACK (Marvel) Remember that time Deadpool had the Venom symbiote? No? That’s because they’re retroactively inserting it into Marvel history. But I gotta say, pretty smart idea.
DEATH OF X (Marvel) In which we FINALLY learn what happened to the older Cyclops and Emma Frost, as well as set the stage for the somewhat forced Inhumans Vs X-Men pending mini.
ENCHANTED TIKI ROOM (Marvel) I guess this is a Disney thing? Let me know if you want it, because we will be ordering very conservatively.
JESSICA JONES (Marvel) New adventures of Netflix star by the original creative team of Bendis & Gaydos.
BLACK (Black Mask) This will be a big one: what if only black people had super powers? Interesting premise by great creators.
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA/ESCAPE FROM NY (Boom!) Huge props to whomever thought this one up. So many Kurt Douglases!
ARMY OF DARKNESS/XENA: FOREVER AND A DAY (D.E.) This is a thing that is happening, apparently.
BETTY BOOP (D.E.) As is this!
HOMIES (D.E.) I guess this was a regarded indy thing in the 90s about city life on the streets. Not familiar.
INTERTWINED (D.E.) A 1971 kung-fu super hero thing dealing with race relations and possibly gender issues.
ANGEL CITY (Oni Press) 1930s lady noir!
