First things first: HOLY MOLY WE HAVE PARKING ON OUR SIDE OF THE STREET
AGAIN! It's been almost TWO YEARS since they took our parking away, so
this is huge. For now it's FREE, but I was told that new parking meters
have been ordered and will be installed sometime in the next month. It's
unknown how long people will be able to park, I'm hoping they're 1 hour
parking, but that's a question for another day. For now I'm going to
run out and lay down in every spot so they know my scent.
BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS again this week in the world of comics. Here are a few noteworthy ones:
*DC announced BLACK LABEL: an imprint where creators can take bolder,
risker choices with characters... included in the 1st wave is a WONDER
WOMAN book by Kelly Sue DeConnick & Phil Jimenez, SUPERMAN: YEAR ONE
by Frank Miller & John Romita, Jr, and a BATMAN story by Brian
Azzarello & Lee Bermejo.
*JH Williams III and Haden Blackman made a huge wave in the comic world
with their run on BATWOMAN, and since doing Sandman Overture Williams
was keeping a fairly low profile. Until this week, anyway, when it was
revealed that they're going to Image with ECHOLANDS. This will be the
best-looking comic on the racks when it comes out, no contest. Next time
you're in the shop check out the preview pages! Here's a lil' taste:
LAST CALL! Here are the titles we need YOUR
HELP deciding how many copies to order! They're debuting in a few weeks
but our orders lock Monday. If you see something you like, tell us! Thanks!
XERXES: FALL OF THE HOUSE OF DARIUS (Dark
Horse) Frank Miller's long-gestating sequel to 300 is finally here! It's
$5.99, which may or may not influence your desire to buy it. I believe
in transparency, so decide what you will!
DEMI-GOD (IDW) A horde of Demi Moore
worshippers descends upon Bruce Willis' house for a bitter reckoning.
Not really! It's a Ron Marz/Andy Smith romp about a regular Joe getting
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG (IDW) For the first time
ever, Sonic has switched publishers and is getting a new #1! I suspect
this'll do okay.
ANALOG (Image) That's a sweet cover.
Deadpool & Guardians of the Galaxy writer Gerry Duggan returns to
Image for a near-future sci-fi/crime thing where paper makes a big
comeback after the internet dies.
ISOLA (Image) You heard it here first
(unless you heard it elsewhere already): this one's gonna be big.
Saga/Seven to Eternity/Monstress/Maestro big. Once people see how
amazing it looks they'll throw their coins at me as they run out the
door in a mad dash to consume it. It's gorgeous. I hope they throw
AVENGERS: SHARDS OF INFINITY (Marvel) This
is a one shot, and I don;t think it's connected to comic continuity.
Maybe not even movie continuity, but it uses movie characters &
VENOMIZED (Marvel) The final chunk of the Venomverse-related stories! Looks fun.
HELM (Action Lab) Witch action! The hot new subgenre.
SWASHBUCKLERS: THE SAGA CONTINUES (Dynamite)
I loved this stuff as a kid, created by the amazing Bill Mantlo. Now
that writer Marc Guggenheim is joining original artist Butch Guice will
it still have the same pep?
CASPER & WENDY (American Mythology) New
team-up adventures featuring these beloved characters from yesteryear.
