By all accounts the rain is supposed to let up today and the sky will be
a bit more forgiving-- much better comic buying weather than being shin
deep in the murk. Which is a beautiful thing, because there is a ton of
great product out this week. I'll also mention-- we have a small stack
of towels here to dry you off when you get here! There's not much to get
into this week, so we can dive into the good stuff.
LAST CALL! Here are the titles set to debut in a few weeks, for which our orders lock on Monday. If you're interested in any, subscribers, please tell us now so we can set our order quantities optimally!
INFERNO (Dark Horse, mini, $3.99) As I've said before, video game
tie-ins are tricky to peg order-wise... even games that have a long
history in comics like this one. If you want, sound off!
TO THE WEDDING-- BATGIRL & RIDDLER (DC, One shot, $3.99) If you've
signed up for any of these on=ramp one shots, we've signed you up for
all of them. Do you like this newer, thuggier taker on the Riddler as
much as I do?
Ongoing, $3.99) He's back! Crashing out of the pages of METAL comes
Carter Hall with a new purpose, courtesy of Rob Venditti and Bryan
PLASTIC MAN (DC, Mini, $3.99) Gail Simone and Plastic Man seem like a match made in heaven, right? This should be good.
(DC, One shot, $4.99) Everything's changing, and this one shot is the
hinge upon which it all swings. If you're already on the list for Titans
you'll get this, but I wanted to invite newly interested parties to
join in on the fun.
THE MAGIC ORDER (Image, Mini, $3.99) Mark Millar! Olivier Coipel! Magic! Crime! What else do you need to know?
CENTAURI (Image, Mini, $3.99) High adventure in the furthest reaches of
space, from one of the most inventive minds in comics: Farel Dalymple! A
(Image, Ongoing, $3.99) Here's the actual solicitation material, I
couldn't pitch this better: Nathan Bright had it all: an awesome
girlfriend, a kickass dog, and a job as the number one weatherman on
terraformed Mars. But when he's accused of carrying out the worst
terrorist attack in human history-an event that wiped out nearly the
entire population of Earth-Nathan becomes the most wanted man alive and a
target of a manhunt that spans the galaxy. But is Nathan truly
responsible for such a horrific crime? And why can't he remember?
ASSASSIN (Marvel, Mini, $4.99) Yep, another one of these. If you want it
tell me! We'll be ordering tightly, for fear of over-saturation on the
ol' Merc w/ a Mouth.
MARVEL RISING: ALPHA (Marvel, One shot?, $4.99) In their very first team-up ever, here's Squirrel Girl and Ms Marvel!
Ongoing, $4.99) Jason Aaron brings Mike del Mundo on board for the last
chunk of his epic Thor run. Look at all those different hammers! If
you're already on for Thor this will carry over.
THE WEEKEND PRESENTS: STARBOY (Marvel, Mini?, $3.99) Yep, musical sensation The Weekend is dipping into comics-making.
(Boom!, Mini, $3.99) John Allison has become quite the indy hitmaker
with Giant Days-- this time he's with Adventure Time artist Christine
Larsen for a reality warping journey of self-discovery!
(Dynamite, Ongoing, $3.99) This ain't your Grandma's Nancy Drew...
unless your Grandma hangs out with people waaaaay younger than she which
would beg a lot of questions about what they have in common. And
perhaps you'll realize that maybe you don't know your Grandma as well as
you should, and maybe it's time you put some effort in.
OF CROWNS (Titan, Mini, $5.99) That's some darn fine cover making, you
ask me. Epic fantasy as two brothers battle for the crown! And the
perceived validation of their father!
