I feel like there's been a bit of confusion regarding Marvel's big X OF SWORDS
event running through all the X titles for the next couple months. We
had added everyone that was on any of the X titles onto a master list to
get the whole event, but a lot of you have decided you only want the
specific titles you're already subscribed to, or are kinda cherry
picking the ones you want but not all of them. That's all fine-- we only
want you to buy what you wanna buy-- but it makes figuring out what to
pull for whom a daunting task. With that said, I think we're going to
convert to pulling by title only, and not from the X of Swords master
list. We're still ordering more than enough for everyone to get
whichever books you want, but you might want to scan the racks when you
come in to make sure you're up to date. And we'll happily point you in
the direction of the newest issues continuing the saga. It's been pretty
excellent so far!
LAST CALL! Here are the titles debuting in a few weeks
for which our orders lock on Monday. Let us know by 5PM Monday if you'd
like to add any to your sub lists! HERE you'll find the complete list of all (non-DC) titles we're working on this time, and below are the spotlight books!
SCARENTHOOD (IDW, Mini,
$3.99, on sale 11/4/20) Between dropping the kids off and picking up, a
group of parents have to fight and vanquish a demonic entity. NBD.
TMNT: JENNIKA II (IDW, Mini, $4.99, on sale 11/4/20) One of the more popular new characters to emerge in the past year or so gets another mini!
CROSSOVER (Image, Mini?,
$3.99, on sale 11/4/20) This'll be one of the biggest books of the year
guaranteed. Donny Cates re-teams with his old pal Geoff Shaw for this
epic about various superhero universes spilling into ours. There'll be a
lot of surprises! Can't wait.
U.S. AGENT (Marvel, Mini,
$3.99, on sale 11/4/20) The amazing Christopher Priest takes on the
jerkiest version of Captain America ever in this new mini!
WOLVERINE: BLACK, WHITE AND BLOOD
(Marvel, Mini, $4.99, on sale 11/4/20) An anthology series featuring
short stories by Marvel's best talents about the shortest X-Man! Maybe
Jubilee is shorter, I dunno.
MIGHTY MORPHIN (Boom!, Ongoing, $3.99, shipping 11/4/20) A bold new direction!
ORIGINS (Boom, Mini, $3.99,
on sale 11/4/20) One of Richmond's most favorite sons, Clay Chapman,
teams with major up and coming artist Jakub Rebelka for this gorgeous
sci-fi tale about humankind trying to come back after being destroyed by
AI created thousands of years earlier.
RED ATLANTIS (Aftershock,
Mini, $3.99, on sale 11/4/20) A young FBI agent gets dragged into a
worldwide web of intrigue after a series of violent actions disrupt the
US' election day. Man, I hope that doesn't hit too close to home.
SWEET TOOTH: THE RETURN (DC, Mini, $3.99, on sale 11/3/20) He's back, in anticipation of the soon-to-air Netflix show!

Have you voted yet? Early in person voting was safe, efficient and
pleasant in both Richmond (Rawn) and Chesterfield (me)-- social
distancing, mask wearing, all the hits. If you don't want to overtax our
besieged post offices, get out there early!
Here we are in August now... meaning Hellyear is almost 2/3 the way
done! I know that on January 1, 2021 the world won't automatically snap
into a shape that feels good again, but hopefully we'll be on the road
towards calmer, juster, more compassionate and less pandemic-y times.
HOT TAKE! I've had a bunch of folks ask for my read on
the Tom King/Jae Lee situation that exploded on twitter this week.
Here's my official take: Man, I am really digging 'Strange Adventures'
so far and I can't wait to see what King does with 'Rorschach' and
'Batman/Catwoman'. Jae Lee has had a remarkable artistic transformation
over the years and always presents atmospheric, provocative imagery
unlike anyone else in the biz. Also, I never go on twitter-- an act I
consider self-care. Nuff said!
DC COMICS sure is shaking up the status quo... first
they drop Diamond as their distributor of choice, and now they've just
announced retailers must complete their weekly order commitments by SUNDAY
instead of Monday. Does this create more work for shops, or at least
force them to do their work differently? You betcha! Does there seem to
be any value at all in forcing this change? Not from my vantage point!
Do we have a choice? Nope! So, if you see something in the Newsletter
from DC that you wanna check out, try to let us know by Sunday instead
of Monday so we can make sure it's ordered for you. Also, if you have a
preference between DC's standard covers and their variants, please let
us know earlier than the week they're out! As much as we'd love to be
able to read your minds we can't, but we still want to order for you
exactly which you prefer. Thanks, team!
LAST CALL! Here are the items we want to showcase for
you whose orders lock on MONDAY (except DC!)... let us know ASAP if
you'd like to add any titles to your lists, subscribers! For the entire
stack of orders we're committing, go HERE!
HELLBLAZER: RISE & FALL
(DC/Black Label, Mini, $6.99, shipping 9/1/20) This looks good-- rising
star Tom Taylor gets to cut loose on a Constantine yarn! A businessman
is dropped from a great height and is found impaled by a church spire...
and the dude has angel wings? Sounds like a very Constantine kinda
problem. Art by the mighty Darick Robertson!
BOMB QUEEN (Image, Mini,
$3.99, shipping 8/26/20) In an effort to prevent President 45 from
becoming Prez for lyfe, Bomb Queen seeks to steal his base and start her
FANTASTIC FOUR: ANTITHESIS
(Marvel, Mini, $4.99, shipping 8/26/20) Living legends Mark Waid &
Neal Adams unite to deliver an FF story like never before! Y'know, both
of these creators are Velocipals... I wonder if it was their connection
to the shop that brought their collaborative relationship together. I'm
sure that's what it was.
CANTO II: HOLLOW MEN (IDW,
Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/26/20) More of this lil' guy! This is something
of a hit for IDW, but I can't say it has much traction at our shop.
Should we be ordering more? Let us know!
LOCKE & KEY: IN PALE BATTALIONS GO (IDW, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/26/20) More of this, from the original creative team of Joe Hill & Gabriel Rodriguez!
MARS ATTACKS RED SONJA
(Dynamite, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/26/20) Dynamite has a lot of licensed
properties, and a will to mash them up as much as possible. To
creatively satisfying result? Too soon to tell... but if you want this
guy sound off! Orders will be lean beyond preorders.
SHIPPING! Here's what's here WEDNESDAY AUGUST 5th! For you!

There are some obvious omissions in there... 'Something is Killing the
Children' narrowly missed entry, 'X-Men' hasn't come out in a long long
time, and 'Immortal Hulk' is segueing into its next story arc. All
excellent, but the above books are the ones I find myself diving into
first, and rereading.
REAL TALK: This week the unemployment supplement runs
out for folks grappling with financially surviving the pandemic. We
understand that this might limit your ability to pick up your comics.
What's very important, though, is talking to us about it. We're in a
similar boat-- we cannot afford to hang onto stuff indefinitely, and if
you communicate to us I'm sure we can work something out. If you ghost
us we have no choice but to shut the box down, and it won't be the kind
of thing where you can just pick it back up at your whim. Let's all try
to be as financially smart and respectful of others' situations as we
can through this, okay?
LAST CALL! Here are the debuting titles we think are
worth your time to consider adding to your sub list. Our orders lock on
Monday afternoon, so telling us if you'd like any prior to that is a
guarantee you'll get what you want. HERE is the whole list of all non-DC items we're locking in...
BATMAN: THREE JOKERS (DC
Black Label, Mini, $6.99, shipping 8/25/20) One of the most anticipated
comics of the decade is finally on schedule! There will be a bunch of
covers, and we're partnering with some fine shops to make sure we can
get as many of them for you as we can.
DEATH METAL GUIDEBOOK (DC,
One-shot, $5.99, shipping 8/18/20) If you've read some of Death Metal
but were left with a deep sense of "hhhhuuhhh?", this'll hopefully clear
that up. We're not going to order a ton over sub numbers, so tell us if
you want it!
VOYAGE TO THE STARS (IDW,
Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/19/20) Based on the hit podcast that I've never
heard of! There's great people involved so I'm sure it's a hoot.
LORDS OF EMPYRE: SWORDSMAN (Marvel, One-shot, $4.99, shipping 8/19/20) Empyre has been killing it so far, so I'm all in on this guy.
MAESTRO (Marvel, Mini,
$4.99, shipping 8/19/20) There's a big gap in the story between the Hulk
we know now and the Maestro he one day becomes. This mini is the
POWER RANGERS: DRAKKON NEW DAWN (Dynamite, Mini, $4.99, shipping 8/19/20) Looks like there's a lot of buildup to this that has MMPR fans buzzing.
SHADOW SERVICE (Vault, Mini, $3.99, shipping 8/19/20) A witch who's also a Private Investigator!
SHIPPING! Here's all the stuff we're getting for you this week! I went ahead and just merged DC into the whole flow. ADVENTURE ZONE GN VOL 03 PETALS TO METAL 19.99
