Well, we're almost done. Today is the last day of the dreaded high
school graduations. I've heard from many of you about trying to get to
the shop and having too hard a time of making it. It's frustrating, we
know. If you've tried to come in and it hasn't worked out, please come
in tomorrow! It'll be free and clear then, and we'd love to see you. I'm
speaking with the local police department to see if there's anything
that can be better done for next year, because this stuff ain't fun for
What IS fun, though, is a bevy of new DC comics announced just this week
that'll be rolling out sometime late summer/early fall. Some gems
*LEGION OF SUPER HEROES returns earlier than we thought, by Brian
Michael Bendis and Ryan Sook! And it looks like Bendis' hit new
character NAOMI might be involved! Or Jon Kent, Superboy. Maybe both?
*GOTHAM CITY MONSTERS features Frankenstein pulling together a bunch of
freaks to fight the good fight in Gotham...Killer Croc, Lady Clayface,
Andrew Bennett (of I, Vampire fame) and Orca are on the rosters for
starters. Looks real fun, and Steve Orlando is one awesome book away
from breaking into the mainstream!
*HARLEEN-- writer/artist Stjepan Sejic delves deeper into Harley Quinn's origin in this prestige 3 issue mature readers title.
*FLASH FORWARD will show us what's next for Wally West post-Heroes in
Crisis! It'll be way better if it involves reuniting him with his
children, just sayin'.
LAST CALL! These are the debuting titles hitting the stands in early
July, note the shipping dates in each title description. If you want any
added to your sub lists, tell us now! Our orders lock on Monday.
BLACK HAMMER/JUSTICE LEAGUE (DC/Dark Horse, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/10/19) One of the most anticipated events of the year finally kicks off!
CRITICAL ROLE VOX MACHINA: ORIGINS II
(Dark Horse, Mini, $3.99. shipping 7/10/19) One of the most asked
questions we get in the shop is when there will be Critical Role comics
available in comic shops. Looks like July 10th!
BATMAN UNIVERSE (DC, Mini, $4.99, shipping 7/10/19) Bendis and Derington's celebrated Wal-Mart exclusive comics finally repackaged for us!
CAREBEARS (IDW, Mini,
$3.99, shipping 7/10/19) No one expected Alan Moore's next bold
deconstruction and reimagining to be a dark, timely look at the
Carebears, and everyone was right. He's not doing that. But this looks
REAVER (Image, Ongoing?,
$3.99, shipping 7/10/19) I mean, based on cover alone it's a win. That's
gorgeous. What's it about, though? Apparently a group of nasty
creatures navigating a hellish fantasy world. I'm in!
UNEARTH (Image, Ongoing,
$3.99, shipping 7/10/19) Another horror jam by the most prolific writer
in comics, Cullen Bunn. Don't believe me? I bet he has like 6 books
coming out this week alone. This one's about a body-warping plague.
GIANT SIZE X-STATIX
(Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 7/10/19) If you've never read
Milligan and Allred's classic run of X-Force and X-Statix, this'll whet
your whistle for more. If you have, what a great chance to revisit a
INVISIBLE WOMAN (Marvel, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/10/19) Sue's getting sucked into a secret mission for SHIELD. Her first solo series!
WOLVERINE & CAPTAIN AMERICA: WEAPON PLUS (Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 7/10/19) Finally connecting some dots on the shared aspects of their respective origins!
WOLVERINE VS BLADE (Marvel,
One-shot, $5.99, shipping 7/10/19) Why NOT have more than one Wolverine
one-shot ship the same week? Heck, why not put TEN out, Marvel?!?
GHOSTED IN L.A. (Boom!,
Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/10/19) A cute lil' slice of life mini about a
girl getting over a break-up in her haunted apartment.

eBay: velocitycomicsrva new listings weekly!
Today marks the HALFWAY POINT in the traffic-clogging ascent to
adulthood that is high school graduations at the Siegel Center. And even
better new: THERE ARE NO GRADUATIONS TODAY (SATURDAY 6/8), SUNDAY 6/9
AND MONDAY 6/10! That means you can park in front of the shop, and you
won't have to fight any abnormally dumb traffic! That's great! If you
are trying to come here between Tue 6/11 and Sat 6/15, here are some
handy guidelines to make your life easier:
*DON'T DRIVE IN FRONT OF THE SIEGEL CENTER, especially in the half hour
or so leading up to a ceremony. They're typically at 10, 2:30 and 7.
There are many other streets to drive on, it's easily avoidable.
*Try to plan your visit while the graduations are happening! It's dead out here while they're happening.
*I'd recommend looping around and traveling WEST on Broad St, taking a
RIGHT on GOSHEN (right across the street from the shop) and parking
somewhere on that street. It's free, it's for limited duration so
there's always spaces available.
*Barring that, customers have expressed ease with parking on Franklin 2
blocks south of us, or Clay, Cathedral and Leigh just a few blocks
north. You can walk a couple blocks, right?
*Anyway, we're over the nightmare hump. It'll all be done after next Saturday.
SUPPLIES! We have just gotten in a MAMMOTH AMOUNT of comic supplies!
Bags, boards, boxes, dividers, carrying cases, you name it. We're loaded
up for the summer and hopefully will not experience a delay in having
htme readily in stock ever again. Thanks for being patient with us!
LAST CALL! Here are the titles debuting in just a few weeks! If you want
any, subscribers, tell us before Monday 6/10 so we can guarantee your
copy before our orders lock that night!
NO ONE LEFT TO FIGHT (Dark
Horse, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) Former Richmonder Aubrey Sitterson
writes this riff on Dragonball style adventure exploring what happens to
warriors after the battle is won?
DOOM PATROL: WEIGHT OF THE WORLDS
(DC/Young Animal, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) I'm sorry to Chandler
Bing at you, but could I BE any more excited about this? Hot off the
heels from their recent TV show (the best DC live action adaptation I've
ever seen, TBH), Gerard Way returns to these amazing characters for
another round, bringing a rotation of the best new artists in comics
LOIS LANE (DC, Mini, $3.99,
shipping 7/3/19) Greg Rucka has been training to write this book his
whole career, right? It hits a lot of his buttons for sure. Maybe it'll
hit your too!
SUPERMAN: UP IN THE SKY
(DC, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) Remember how annoying it was when DC
announced they were doing Wal-Mart exclusives with A-list talent? Well
here that stuff is, without all the reprint stuff in the back! Tom King
writing Superman sounds good to me!
SEA OF STARS (Image, Ongoing?, $3.99,
shipping 7/3/19) You're gonna want this. Jason Aaron co-writing a new
Image sci-fi series with Dennis Hallum (formerly Hopeless)? And it's got
a single dad space trucker lost out there with his kid? That's a big
YES from me!
SPACE BANDITS (Image, Mini,
$3.99, shipping 7/3/19) Mark Millar teams with Matteo Scalera for some
galaxy-hopping heist action! It'll be one of the best-looking books on
the rack the second it hits!
AERO (Marvel, Ongoing, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) Bounding out of the pages of the New Agents of Atlas comes Marvel's newest solo hero!
CAPTAIN AMERICA/INVADERS: BAHAMA'S TRIANGLE (Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 7/3/19) Arriving just inm time for Independence Day, by Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway!
FANTASTIC FOUR: PRODIGAL SUN
(Marvel, Mini, $4.99) Kicking off a three-part story running between
the FF, Silver Surfer, and Guardians of the Galaxy! And look at that,
that's Ka-Zar & Shanna in the mix! What fun!
STAR WARS: TARGET VADER
(Marvel, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) I really, really wanted this to
be about the Imperial Guard having to impose layoffs due to an
intergalactic recession, and Darth Vader reluctantly getting a job at
Target. Unfortunately that's not it. It's about bounty hunters n'
CHARLIE'S ANGELS/THE BIONIC WOMAN
(Dynamite, Mini, $3.99, shipping 7/3/19) File this one under, "we have
no idea if there's any interest in this, so please definitely tell us
now if you want it!"
