We're coming up on that time of year... that's right, it's 'high school
graduation ceremonies at VCU's Siegel Center' season. Trust me, I'm at
least as excited about it as you are. There are some silver linings to
be had this year, and I wanted to go over some bullet points about the
whole ordeal in case you're newer here or got a lobotomy to forget:
*JUNE 5th through JUNE 16th. Those are the dates.Generally there are graduations around 10am, 3pm and 7pm.
*Some good news: There are NO GRADUATIONS happening on SATURDAY, JUNE 9th and SUNDAY, JUNE 10th. Come on down!
*I will be giving daily updates on our facebook page and instagram re:
the schedule. You can also call or email us before you come and we'll
give you the skinny.
*On days with graduations, we're going to stay open until 8PM to give you guys some extra time to get here.
*USE ALTERNATE STREETS! This is important. Broad St will be very
congested a half hour before and after the ceremonies. Pretty okay
around that. If you're coming from the East, use Main, Leigh or Clay.
From the West: Monument/Franklin or Grace St. And you might have to park
a block further away.
We appreciate you working with us through this... we still very much
need your business, this is the toughest period of the year for us.
LAST CALL! Here are the titles debuting in a few weeks, for which our orders lock on Monday. Telling us NOW if you want something is the best way to guarantee you'll get it. No guarantees after that, we'll do our best.
BEDTIME GAMES (Dark Horse, Mini, $3.99) A
group of high school seniors unwittingly release an ancient evil as they
explore their school's mysterious past. Looks promising!
MODERN FANTASY (Dark Horse, Ongoing, $3.99) I
think the cover says it all-- if you like the looks of that you'll be
BATMAN PRELUDE TO THE WEDDING: HARLEY QUINN
& JOKER (DC, One-shot, $3.99) I think this is the last one of these?
It'll be a good one.
TEEN TITANS SPECIAL (DC, One shot, $4.99)
This kickstarts the next chapter in the Teen Titans story, looks like
Damian's not looking to be beholden to his dad any more...
JOE HILL'S THE CAPE: FALLEN (IDW, Mini,
$3.99) Returning to the hit miniseries from several years ago!
LOWLIFES (IDW, Ongoing?, $3.99) Seedy underbelly of LA crime/noir. Looks very good.
THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN: THE
TEMPEST (IDW, Mini, $4.99) Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill are getting the
band back together!
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (Marvel, Ongoing, $5.99) A
new era dawns! The big news is that Ryan Ottley of 'Invincible' fame,
one of the best action artists in comics, is the new art guy! Nick
Spencer is def channeling his best work (Superior Foes of Spider-Man,
The Fix) for his gig as writer. Can't wait!
MULTIPLE MAN (Marvel, Mini, $3.99) Great character, great costume, great cover. Glad he's back!
SENTRY (Marvel, Ongoing, $3.99) Jeff Lemire
is back writing at Marvel, with great up-and-comer Kim Jacinto on art!
Very interested to see from what angle they'll approach this
WAKANDA FOREVER (Marvel, Mini, $3.99) This
one's a no-brainer... a team-up book featuring Okoyo, Ayo and Aneka from
Black Panther teaming up with other Marvel characters! Up first is
X-MEN GRAND DESIGN: SECOND GENESIS (Marvel,
Mini, $5.99) If you're late to the party on Ed Piskor's streamlined
retelling of the X-Men Origin, worry not! We have plenty of the early
stuff, and here's the second chunk!
OH S#!T! IT'S KIM AND KIM! (Black Mask,
Ongoing, $3.99) Now ongoing! Written by former Richmonder Magdalene
CHARLIE'S ANGELS (D.E., Mini, $3.99) We'll
be ordering very tightly on this one, no idea the interest level. Tell
us if you want it!
VAMPIRELLA: ROSES FOR THE DEAD (D.E., Mini,
$3.99) Drawn by the well-regarded Joseph Michael Linsner!
SHADOW ROADS (Oni, Ongoing, $3.99) A sort-of
sequel to THE SIXTH GUN! It's set in that world, it its aftermath.
MIKE HAMMER (Titan, Mini, $3.99) Adapted
from an original Mickey Spillane story by Max Allan Collins, one of the
all-time greats of comic book noir!
