Hello, all--

Hoo boy. A real quick THANK YOU to everyone that came out for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY yesterday...what a great way to celebrate the art form. There's nothing better for me than getting comics into the hands of folks who want to check something awesome out, something they'll click with. And with your help we broke our single day sales record by about 18%! That's just unheard of, and you all have my most sincere thanks. We wouldn't be here without you. And we're in for a real humdinger of a summer, with publishers putting out a mountain of can't miss stuff! It's the best time to love comics. To that end, it's time for...

LAST CALL! These titles are debuting around the end of the month, but we'd like for you to tell us NOW if you'd like any so we can order appropriately! Our orders lock tomorrow (Monday) evening, so sound off if something looks good to you! 
BLACKWOOD (Dark Horse) Any time comics maestro Evan Dorkin puts something out, it's very worth taking notice. See: Beasts of Burden, Milk & Cheese. This murder mystery set in a sorcery school will have art by Veronica Fish, most recently of Archie fame! 
AQUAMAN/JABBERJAW SPECIAL (DC) This has the warm hand of DESTINY gently massaging its neck-- two titans of the undersea world, together for the first time! 
BATMAN: PRELUDE TO THE WEDDING-- ROBIN VS RA'S AL GHUL (DC) We're on the on-ramp now! I know we'll order a lot of these, but I suspect demand will be huge so telling me NOW you want will be the best way to ensure you get a first printing! 
BLACK LIGHTNING/HONG KONG PHOOEY SPECIAL (DC) More DC Hanna Barbera crossover hijinks! 
FLASH SPEED BUGGY SPECIAL (DC) Oohhh, I see what's happening now. They're all coming out on the same day. Well okay! 
MAN OF STEEL (DC) The BENDIS ERA OF SUPERMAN begins here! Before taking over both Superman and Action Comics, we get this weekly mini that might just change everything. 
SUPER SONS/DYNOMUTT SPECIAL (DC) Another one, particularly awesome because Blue Falcon and Dynomutt are super cool. 
UNEXPECTED (DC) Ryan Sook and Steve Orlando team up to introduce you to some new characters lurking in the DCU, spinning out of Metal!
JUDGE DREDD: UNDER SIEGE (IDW) This one's written by MARK RUSSELL, who produced two of the best comics of the last few years with THE FLINTSTONES and PREZ. This will be great! 
MY LITTLE PONY: PONYVILLE MYSTERIES (IDW) We don't see as many Ponyheads (I prefer that to "Bronies") as we used to... so we'll be ordering lightly on this one. Tell us if you want it! 
THE LAST SIEGE (Image) Writer Landry Walker had a cult hit a few years ago with DANGER CLUB. Let's see if he strikes hot with this new ongoing western fantasy mash-up. 
INFINITY COUNTDOWN: CAPTAIN MARVEL (Marvel) We're getting a Mar-Vell, Carol Danvers and Monica Rambeau time traveling team-up in this one! 
STAR WARS: LANDO-- DOUBLE OR NOTHING (Marvel) This new mini has WAY MORE Donald Glover than any other Star Wars comic ever! Tying into SOLO somehow! 
TONY STARK: IRON MAN (Marvel) I gotta say, this looks great. New writer Dan Slott said his take on Tony Stark is somewhere between Rick & Morty and Black Mirror, and that seems potentially perfect. 
WE ARE THE DANGER (Black Mask) Two girls form a rock band with dreams of hitting it big. Something probably happens to throw a monkey wrench in that.
2021: LOST CHILDREN (Titan) For fans of Akira and The X-Men, is what it says. I guess that's pretty much all of us? 
VALIANT HIGH (Valiant) While I wish this was about a noble stoner, it's really about teenagers in the Valiant Universe. Maybe the two aren't mutually exclusive?
