Hello, all--

Soooo, I saw VENOM last night. I went in with low expectations, as the reviews have been less than kind, but I've gotta say: I kinda loved it. Tom Hardy delivers a Nicholas Cage-worthy performance (a huge compliment) and the relationship between Eddie and the symbiote is huge fun. Don't believe the negative hype!

Unless you've been living under a rock-- and if you have, that's cool-- you know that the NEW YORK COMIC CON is going on as we speak. It's become the biggest comic show in the US, eclipsing San Diego these last couple years. Here are a few quick bullet points of some of the cooler announcements in case you missed 'em:
*FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN, by Tom Taylor & Juann Cabal, is a new ongoing Spidey book coming next year!
*Brian Michael Bendis is overseeing WONDER COMICS, an imprint focusing on teen heroes within the DCU! And he'll be writing YOUNG JUSTICE featuring Impulse, Conner Kent, and Tim Drake!
*Part of that line: WONDER TWINS, written by Mark Russell of Flintstones, Exit Stage Left and Lex Luthor fame!
*John Cassaday and Mark Waid are spearheading a new super hero universe of comics for Euro-import publisher HUMANOIDS!
*Sean Murphy's follow-up to Batman: White Knight? BATMAN: SWORD OF AZRAEL!
I'm sure there will be some other bomb drops today, as it's the biggest day for the show. I'll try to post the big ones on our facebook page!

WALKING DEAD DAY is a week from today-- Saturday, October 13th! To commemorate, Image has put out a ton of key Walking Dead issue reprints, with cover art from today's hottest artists! To up the ante, each of these covers will be blind-bagged, and could contain original art sketches. We'll have VERY LIMITED QUANTITIES of each book on hand, with a firm one-per-customer, no holds unless you pre-ordered policy. We'll also be doing 25% off all Image stock except new titles for the week to celebrate! A great time to catch up on Saga  Seven to Eternity, Snotgirl, you name it.
