Hello, all...

Did you see all the huge comic announcements that have happened since the last newsletter? Sheesh! 2018 is looking very strong, with Marvel  making a big push to win back some new and lapsed readers. Here are a quick few bullet-points:
-AVENGERS by Jason Aaron & Ed McGuinness!
-AMAZING SPIDER-MAN by Nick Spencer & Ryan (Invincible) Ottley!
-THE IMMORTAL HULK by Al Ewing & Joe Bennett!
-VENOM by Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman!
-BLACK PANTHER by Ta-Nehisi Coates & Daniel Acuna!
-a new line of SANDMAN related comics overseen by creator NEIL GAIMAN!
-Rick Remender is debuting a new Image series called DEATH OR GLORY with artist Bengal!

We're coming up on our orders locking soon for the monumental ACTION COMICS #1000, which has a bunch of sweet covers. Luckily DC has given us a good look at them, which I can now pass onto you. If you see one (or three) that you like, let us know and we'll make sure to order for you! Here's the link: https://www.previewsworld.com/Article/207754-DC-Unveils-Variant-Covers-For-Action-Comics-1000

LAST CALL! Speaking of orders locking, here are the titles debuting in a few weeks for which that happens. Tell us as soon as you can if you want any of these, so we order ample quantities! 
IMMORTAL MEN (DC) One of the biggest books coming out of Metal! Who are these guys, and how long will Jim Lee last drawing it?!? I give it 3 issues. But it looks great!
MOTHER PANIC: AD (DC/Young Animal) She's back, post- Milk Wars! 
BUBBA HO-TEP & COSMIC BLOOD SUCKERS (IDW) This is a great example of a book for which I have NO IDEA the demand. Sound off! 
CROW: MEMENTO MORI (IDW) It's been a while since there's been new work in this world... it's a pretty sharp cover, that's for sure. 
CYBER FORCE (Image) Ok, let's try this again. Another re-imagining, with creator Marc Silvestri serving as overseer.  
DAMNATION: JOHNNY BLAZE, GHOST RIDER (Marvel) This is a one-shot, but I'm guessing they're testing the water for a new series. 
BREATHLESS (Black Mask) Directly from the solicitation copy: it's Buffy the Vampire Slayer if the villains were big pharma.
SHADOWMAN (Valiant) A new riff on a cult classic, this time written by Andy Diggle! He's good.
